Pebble Beach, Monterey, California
Famous BMWs took 1-2 at the Pebble Beach Concours this year. BMW AG continued a streak of wins with the unique R7 prototype, beautifully restored by a team of star restoration experts assembled for the project. Last year, as we reported, the R7 won a prestigious award at the Amelia Island Concours. You can read BMW's press release here.
