Pebble Beach is an outstanding event if you're interested in pre-war classics, but outside of the parking lots, it's a bit light on more modern stuff. The Quail, now in its eleventh year, leans far more towards the present day, and has become one of the must-attend events of the Monterey car week.

Like Pebble, though, it's a highly exclusive affair, with triple-digit ticket prices that usually sell out at the same rate as a Justin Bieber concert. If you're one of the lucky few to hold a pass, though, you'll be rubbing elbows with a who's who of the auto world. One of the highlights of this year's event was the appearance of one Michael Schumacher, who showed up alongside one of his Formula One cars. A retrospective was also held on Lamborghini's 50 years of production, as well as another celebration of Aston Martin's centennial. There was also a tribute to the late Martin Swig, one of the co-founders of the California Mille, who passed away last year.

The cars, not surprisingly, were epic. Lamborghini, Pagani, Spyker, Rolls-Royce, BMW, McLaren, Bugatti and Galpin Ford all showed new models to the public for the first time, while there were also appearances by Jim Glickenhaus and his Ferrari P4/5 and P4/5 Competizione, marking the first time the coach-built masterpiece and its racing offspring were shown together. Finally, the Petersen Museum showed off its wares, including the late Steve McQueen's gorgeous Jaguar XK-SS.

We have plenty of live images from The Quail in the high-res gallery above. Be sure to take a look.

      Sorry to nitpick, but it is "wares", not "wears". /anal retentiveness

      What was that giant yellow monster in the background of the 21st pic? Why are there so many duplicate photos of regular production cars, and no photos of it? What the heck is it?

        That big yellow "car" is a 1919 El Bestioni Cheers

      Why have you forsaken the unique filename format that you used to use? You've still got the "Download Image" buttons, but you now have every image entitled "l.jpg" - I have to rename each and every image before saving it. I so enjoy the great photographs you host on your site, but I really like to create slideshows with them and it's just too time-consuming now.
