If you love cars, there’s no better place to be in mid-August than Monterey, California. It’s a whole week’s worth of automotive awesomeness, culminating with the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Since 1950, the concours brings together some of the most outstanding, exotic, and rarest cars in the world, all on display against the gorgeous backdrop of Pebble Beach. A number of featured marques and special classes are presented every year, and for 2016, that includes the Ford GT40, BMW (it’s the brand’s 100th anniversary, after all), Lamborghini Miura, and more.

The Pebble Beach Concours is truly a sight to behold, and we invite you to scroll through the gallery below to see stunning examples of the world’s best automobiles, all on display at this year’s event.
