Each car will debut at Pebble Beach and Quail

Friends, it’s that time of year again: Monterey Car Week. Auto show festivities kick off Wednesday, Aug. 17, with the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in Laguna Seca and continue through the weekend with The Quail A Motorsports Gathering on Friday, concluding with the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday.

Basically, what we’re saying is that there will be no shortage of high-end supercars and luxury cars for you to look at, old and new, at the show. With that in mind, here’s a quick preview of what you can expect if you’re in Monterey next week.

Acura Precision EV Concept

Acura is no stranger to Car Week. Last year saw our first glimpse of the new NSX Type S, and it was also the first mention of the Integra’s return. This year should be no less special. Acura has the Precision EV concept to show the design language of its upcoming electric vehicles.

Joining the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion alongside the iconic 1985 Audi Sport Quattro S1 Group B, the Hoonitron will be driving around Laguna Seca starting August 17th.

Bentley is making big strides this year. The upcoming Mulliner Batur – previewed here – will introduce the world to the automaker’s new design language for Bentley’s electric era. The limited-edition GT car will be the successor to last year’s Bacalar, and one can only imagine how much it could cost.

BMW has two big debuts planned for Monterey: the new M4 CSL and the M3 50 Jahre Edition. The former coupe boasts 543 horsepower and a 0-100 km/h time of 3.6 seconds, making it the most powerful M4 ever built. The M3 Special Edition, meanwhile, revives iconic M car colors such as Techno Violet and Deep Interlagos Blue.

We got our first glimpse of the stunning Celestiq back in July when the luxury sedan made its virtual debut. With sultry exteriors and a luxurious interior – complete with a massive 55.0-inch touchscreen display – the Celestiq will make its first in-person debut in Monterey.

Hennessey Venom F5 roadster

What’s better than a hypercar with 1,817 horsepower and a top speed of 311 mph? The same speed without the roof. Hennessey will debut the highly anticipated Venom F5 Roadster at this year’s Monterey Car Week, and while we don’t know all the details yet, we expect most of the same performance specs to remain.

DeLorean Alpha5

DeLorean is back – and the stunning Alpha5 will debut at the Pebble Beach Concours. With a battery capacity of more than 100 kilowatt-hours, the all-electric DeLorean promises 300 miles of range and a 0-60 mph time of just 3.4 seconds when it reaches production.

It’s not yet confirmed, but Lamborghini could have up to three Monterey debuts. An all-terrain Huracan Sterrato and a variant of the Lamborghini Urus SUV are expected to grace the lawns of Pebble Beach – and maybe even a third model could make an appearance if we’re lucky.

Like the DeLorean, the Meyers Manx is making a comeback. This time, the iconic buggy returns with an all-electric engine that includes a top-of-the-line 40.0 kilowatt-hour battery and a range of up to 300 miles. But if you want it, you’d better hurry. The company is offering just 50 examples for the 2023 model year at an undisclosed price.

Sally Carrera, one of the stars of Pixar’s Cars, turns 20 this year. To mark the occasion, Porsche will debut the Sally Tribute 911 at Monterey, based on the current 992. As far as we know, it won’t have eyes on the windshield, but it will be painted the same blue as the animated character. .

The 282mph SSC Tuatara is getting a sibling. SSC will reveal a new track Tuatara called Striker. Thanks to its massive rear wing and ample diffuser, the Striker has three times the downforce of the standard Tuatara above 260mph, but it retains its 1,750bhp powerplant.
