Click above for high-res gallery of the Motorworks Revival party

For more than a decade, Gordon McCall's Motorworks Revival party has kicked off the Pebble Beach weekend in style. The event brings together the who's who of the automotive world, and guests are wined and dined alongside some of the world's most impressive machinery. The display of automobiles was particularly exceptional this year with an incredible collection of supercars and priceless classic. Jim Glickenhaus was kind enough to bring out his one-off Pininfarina P4/5 that was displayed alongside a Ferrari Formula 1 car, and we were treated to a pair of Bugatti Veyrons as well as two Koenigsegg CCXs, not to mention a 1-of-20 Lamborghini Reventon. We were also able to make an interesting comparison of the brand new Corvette ZR1 and a Pratt and Miller C6RS that sat back to back. We made sure to take plenty of photographs, and you can browse through them in the high-resolution gallery below.

      Funny how Corvettes pop up whenever there are exotics on display. I think Corvette owners are an insecure bunch and need validation from their fellow supercar buddies.

      When there are Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bugattis, Maserattis, Pininfarinas and Koenigseggs, I'd keep my Corvette at home.

        I don't follow your reasoning. Not to start an argument, but corvettes are high end vehicles that are compatible with many exotics. It makes perfect sense to put them on display along side their more expensive brethren.

        I agree Iceman, I love the 'vette, but really, it can play with the likes of these cars in performance only. In terms of prestige and style, they're just a class below. Looking at this event, they aren't driving these things fast- it's about looking damn good, which these cars do, including the chevy, but it's just not the same as a Ferrari or a Reventon, ya know?

        I think the ZR1 Corvette has already proved that it has what it takes to take the stage with the cars on display here. It costs as much as something from Porsche and after dealer markup probably closer to a bone-stock F430. And its performance on the track seems to be as good as if not better than about 85% of them as well.

        Sure, the inside's good ol' American plastic and leather... but we don't ALL need suede-trimmed dashes (but I wouldn't turn one away).

      I'm way more interested in that P-38 in the background.

      Awesome gathering. Jim's P4/5 is really a piece of work.

      There is some positively brilliant photography in this gallery. I've been an amateur photographer for about a year now and the composition, exposure, color, and focus on 90% of these photos absolutely blew my mind. I don't know how much of it's been photoshopped to look just right but whoever took these definitely needs some real recognition for what they do, for both the photos and any touching up (if any) that makes them so great.

      I'd love to get this kind of opportunity to take pictures like this, and especially of cars like these. Never thought I'd see a Reventon shot from that close... the way it just soaks up the light and reflects almost nothing is really sexy.... it really is like a fighter jet for the road. Sad that I'll probably never in my lifetime see one in person!

      And the P4/5. I never liked any of the press photos I saw of it. In some ways it looked... well... cheap and kit-carish. But in these shots, properly polished and waxed, and with the angles it was shot from, I finally saw what makes it such a special machine. It really is a Pininfarina masterpiece, and that rear end with the prancing horse just behind the awesome rear window.. NICE touch.

      WOW. That just about sums it up.

      The F50 is easily one of my favorite Ferrari's of all time. The design is astounding.
        • 6 Years Ago
        F40 is my favorite for sure, it just looks so brutal
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreed. I think the F50 is way cooler than the Enzo. Its more unique.

      I see a one of 14 Ferrari 365 California behind the red/black Ferrari 375. Picture #36.
      • 6 Years Ago
      The CCX is so damn cool. Call me crazy, I'd rather have a CCX than a Veyron.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I need to wipe the drool from my chin.

      P-38 and an F50. damn.
      • 6 Years Ago
      If there is post a 2000 Ferrari that's sexxy, it is the P4/5.
