The Quail: the ultra exclusive classic car party at Pebble Beach 2013Sun, 18 Aug 2013
2013’s The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, celebrated Aston Martin’s centenary, Lamborghini’s half century and the event’s 11th outing. MSN Cars went to pay homage on its special lawn, while F1 star Michael Schumacher and former Ferrari supremo Jean Todt hosted a casual Q&A and major league car collector and US chat show host Jay Leno walked among us. It was that sort of a do.
A bit like an American version of Italy’s Villa d’Este, The Quail is a small gathering of classic cars – many with motorsport leanings – that have distinguished themselves from lesser classics by virtue of personal history, rarity and quality condition. Set across the Quail Golf Lodge as part of the wider Pebble Beach area classic car week, the event is about ‘less is more’ compared to the much bigger Pebble Beach Concours that takes place at the end of the week.
