Read everything else we have to say about Monterey Car Week and the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
A Bentley has won top honors at the 2019 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, fitting given that the British marque is celebrating its 100th year (or centenary, as Bentley calls it). The best of show winner is a 1931 Bentley 8 Liter Gurney Nutting Sports Tourer owned by the Honorable Sir Michael Kadoorie.
It is powered by an 8.0-liter inline-six and claimed a top speed of over 100 mph in its day. This particular car has bodywork by coachbuilder Gurney Nutting and is said to be one of two vehicles built in this configuration. It was restored in 2004 and acquired by its current owner in 2010.
The Pebble Beach Concours notes on its blog that the last time a Bentley took the Best of Show trophy at the Pebble Beach Concours was 1965.
