About Legends

A Celebration of German
Automotive Engineering


Legends Of The Autobahn® Presented by Michelin

**View our 2016 Legends of the Autobahn TV Commercial**

Legends Of The Autobahn® is an all-German marque Concours d'Elegance held at the prestigious Nicklaus Club-Monterey during Monterey, California’s famed Pebble Beach Concours week. 

Legends is hosted by the BMW Car Club of America, the Mercedes—Benz Club of America, and the Audi Club of America. The annual concours event offers both corral and judged areas, awards for all three featured marques, and an open class for all other German—made cars. The show field also features displays from manufacturers, sponsors, and vendors, along with several lunch options, and an available breakfast.

Each year, the concours draws over 400 registered cars and over 3,000 spectators that fill the fairways of the Nicklaus Club-Monterey. Spectators are regularly greeted by rare and historically significant models, as well as factory-prepared specials. And the 2016 edition of the show is particularly special as Legends kicks off the 100th anniversary celebration for BMW in Monterey and will be the first of three events that compose the Celebrate BMW festival hosted by the BMW CCA. 

The Legends Of The Autobahn® concours has become a national sensation among German car enthusiasts with widespread coverage in the automotive media. In 2011 the event gained international recognition with the North American debut of the BMW 328 Hommage concept car. In 2012 we saw the debut of BMW’s Zagato Z4 Roadster concept, and in 2014 we saw the unveiling of the highly-anticipated M4 GTS concept car. 

Make plans to join the BMW Car Club of America, the Mercedes Club of America, and the Audi Club of North America—the world’s preeminent German-marque car clubs—at the annual Legends Of The Autobahn® concours d’elegance.

Register your BMW, Mercedes, Audi, or other German—made vehicle now for this spectacular celebration of automotive engineering before it’s sold out.
