About Legends Of The Autobahn, Presented By Michelin
Legends Of The Autobahn® is an all-German marque Concours d’Elegance held 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 North 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. Each year, the concours draws over 400 registered cars and over 3,000 spectators that fill the show field. Spectators are regularly greeted by rare and historically significant models, as well as factory-prepared specials. 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.
