Bentley racecars at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance - Click above for high-res image gallery

When they pick a featured marque at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, they really go big. For instance, all of the Ferrari TR59 race cars ever made were gathered together this year.

For Bentley's racing class, the organizers managed to corral the largest gathering of historic Bentleys ever in one place at one time. Reaching all the way back to the 1922 Bentley 3-Litre Park Ward Tourer that finished fourth at the inaugural Le Mans 24 Hour Race, the display included memorable sports cars all the way up to the 2003 Bentley Speed 8 that led a Bentley 1-2 in the fabled French endurance race. There were 3-liter cars, 4-1/4-liter cars, and 4-1/2- liter cars, Blowers and Speed Sixes. Altogether, there were 13 cars in class, plus another 26 in the various other classes, and of course the debut of the new Bentley Mulsanne as well. For lovers of all things Coventry, it was pure nirvana. Check out our high-res gallery below.
