This August, automotive aficionados, car collectors, and gearheads from across the United States will descend on the otherwise sleepy town of Monterey, California for one of the most prestigious events in the transportation industry—the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, presented by RM Sotheby’s.

For more than 50 years, this event has hosted some of the finest cars the world has ever seen, including the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster, the 1966 Ferrari 330 P4 Drogo Spyder, 1937 Delahaye 135 M Figoni et Falaschi Cabriolet, and this year’s headliner—the 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta.

Is it any wonder why the Financial Times calls Concours “…the #1 event of its type in the world,” and the Wall Street Journal refers to it as “…the world’s best annual display of historic and beautiful cars”?

The 2017 Concours—held on August 20th—will see 200 collector cars parked across the world-famous 18th hole of Pebble Beach Golf Links, and competitively judged on their grace, elegance, condition, and adherence to historical accuracy.

Although Sunday is the true day of the Concours, the entire week leading up is the pinnacle of panache.

Consider Friday the 18th, for example, when guests can attend a number of signature events including:

From 8am-3pm at the Nicklaus Club, judges will evaluate a fleet of BMWs, Porsches, Mercedes-Benz, and Audis to determine who really is the king of the world’s most famous roadway.

Hosted by the Porsche Club of America, the Werks Reunion is an all-day affair, from 7am-4pm. During that time, attendees can admire the latest releases from Porsche, take-in a number of special vehicle presentations, and possibly spot a celebrity guest or two.

Have a need for speed? The head over to Lighthouse Avenue in Pacific Grove from 1pm to 5:30pm, for an auto rally that will feature more than 200 utterly unforgettable cars.

Admire the very best in exotics from 3pm-8pm, on the same Cannery Row made famous by author John Steinbeck. This rare-car showcase is completely open to the public and will feature more than 300 supercars, hyper-cars, and exotics.

Whether you’re in the midst of assembling your own unique car collection, or already have one well-established, the Concours is an event you cannot afford to miss. Every year, RM Sotheby’s auctions off a roster of practically unattainable automobiles that are impossibly difficult to find anywhere other than this magnificent seaside sale.

And speaking of magnificent, there’s only one listing on the Scottsdale marketplace that has a garage worthy of any new automotive acquisitions made at the Concours—9701 E Happy Valley Road, No. 2.

Built by Garage Mahals, this racing-inspired, hot-rod red, show garage is the perfect place to store your automotive works of art when they’re not out cruising long, flat stretches of open road that dot Greater Phoenix.

This luxury garage is a true extension of the home itself—9,000+ square feet of desert paradise. Envisioned, designed, and built by Gary Gietz, this elegant, 4.39-acre North Scottsdale property owns marquee amenities that cater to those with more discerning tastes—artisan wood finishes, Cantera flooring, and signature views of Pinnacle Peak and Troon Mountain throughout.

When you’re done motoring for the day, relax outside with your favorite beverage by the terraced fountain, or take a refreshing dip in the glittering pool.
