There’s no doubt about it, the setting for the annual Pebble Beach Automotive Week south of Monterey in California is unique. It is set against the backdrop of the lush green of the world’s most famous golf course, rugged coastline and the deep blue of the Pacific Ocean. Once a year, those lucky enough to drive along the winding coastal roads around the legendary Pebble Beach golf course venue can expect to get a glimpse of the world’s most exclusive automobiles. At the so-called Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, brand-new, lavishly restored and even completely untouched vintage cars are presented to the public. There’s also a place for the latest production models and concept cars. BMW M has been a regular guest here for years, and a large number of classic automobiles from Munich were also represented this time around. As well as showcasing older vehicles, the new BMW Z4 M40i First Edition celebrated its debut on the Californian coast. Meanwhile, another eye-catcher on the green was the BMW Concept M8 Gran Coupé.
