52013 Quail Motorsports Gathering wows with modern masterpieces

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.

42Lamborghini Veneno makes North American debut

Love it or hate it, the Lamborghini Veneno is an incredible – and incredibly rare – car. With Lamborghini committed to building just three examples of the Veneno, it's very likely that we'll only ever see this pre-production show car in our lifetime.

102012 Quail Motorsports Gathering is excellent, if you have the means

It would be unfair to call the Quail Motorsports Gathering a car show. Doing so would be like saying Bruce Lee was sufficiently talented in the art of self defense. Every year the Quail Lodge in Carmel, California plays host to both manufacturers and collectors for a day, and this year saw a typically impressive range of featured models. From the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse to the SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition and the wild McLaren X-1 Concept to a passel of Shelby Cobra examples and a

13Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is the same Bug with new paint

We typically wince any time a manufacturer rolls out a special edition that's little more than a coat of paint, but we'll make an exception in this case. Bugatti parked the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse on the lawn of the Quail Motorsports Gathering, resplendent in its Bianco and Light Blue livery. The paint scheme is a tribute to the 1928 Type 37A. That open-wheel racer took the checkered flag at a number of grand prix events and now finds itself in the loving care of none other than Jay Leno

322013 Viper GTS Launch Edition takes a bow at Quail Motorsports Gathering

Chrysler took the time to show off the first special edition version of the 2013 SRT Viper. Dipped in the same GTS blue paint as the original Viper, the GTS Launch Edition also wears the same Bright White racing stripes from nose to tail. Chrysler says the combination will only be available on Launch Edition cars and that the final production will be limited. How limited? The company isn't saying, though we imagine you'll need to know your local dealer pretty well to bring one of these machines

5Completed Bugatti Type 64 Coupe to make debut at Quail Motorsports Gathering

If you're one of the Autoblog faithful you might remember our story on the Bugatti Type 64 Coupe chassis on display at the Mullin Automotive Museum, one of just three built by the French carmaker before the death of Jean Bugatti. At the time, we told you the museum had plans to finalize the construction of the car with custom coachwork – only one example received bodywork from the factory – and now that time has finally come to unveil the finished product. Today it was announced that

82011 Quail Motorsports Gathering

The Pebble Beach Concours might be the most prominent event during the Monterey Car Week, but the hottest ticket in town is to the Quail Motorsports Gathering. Set on the picturesque lawn of the Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, the event follows the mantra of "less is more" - fewer people and fewer cars, all in the name of exclusivity. The result is that you don't have to rub elbows with fellow spectators to look at the cars, every one of which is spectacular.

19Bugatti Veyrons gather at the Quail

A few years ago, we spotted four Bugatti Veyrons outside the Pebble Beach Lodge. Since only 300 examples will ever be built, we thought that to be a pretty rare sight. Consider that trumped.

30The parking lot of the Quail is a car show in itself

There are plenty of events going on in Monterey this week, from car shows to races to auctions, but you don't even have to be at one of these to see amazing cars. Even if you just hang out near the events you're bound to see rare exotics and coveted classics.

11Delahaye USA debuts Bugatti-inspired Bella Figura prototype

Delahaye USA has been at work developing and building the Bella Figura, a modern tribute to the Bugatti Type 57S, for more than three years. The company has finally (mostly) finished the prototype, and presented it to the public for the very first time at this year's Quail Motorsports Gathering.
