This year’s Monterey Car Week will feature a number of debuts, including models from Audi, BMW, Lamborghini, and many more.
It’s Monterey Car Week once more, so get ready. The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca will get things rolling on Wednesday, August 17, followed by The Quail A Motorsports Gathering on Friday and the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday.
What we’re trying to say is that both vintage and modern supercars and luxury automobiles will be on display for your viewing pleasure. Given that, let’s take a glance at what the coming week in Monterey has in store.
Acura’s Precision EV Concept Is One Of Pebble’s Hottest Rides
This will not be Acura’s first time participating in Car Week. The new NSX Type S made its debut last year, and there had been rumblings about the Integra’s possible comeback for some time. This year ought to be just as memorable. Acura’s Precision EV concept previews the brand’s future electric vehicle’s design language.
This is the Audi S1 E-Tron Quattro Hoonitron.
Photos of Ken Block’s wild Audi S1 E-Tron Quattro Hoonitron have been released, but in Monterey, we’ll get to see the electric rally car for ourselves. Beginning on August 17, the Hoonitron will compete in races around Laguna Seca as part of the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion alongside a 1985 Audi Sport Quattro S1 Group B icon.
The Bentley Mulliner Batur
It’s a big year for Bentley. Bentley’s new design language for the electric era is being previewed here with the upcoming Mulliner Batur. The high-end GT car will replace the outgoing Bacalar, and its price is anyone’s guess.
This is a 50th Anniversary Edition BMW M4 CSL/M3
The new M4 CSL and the M3 50 Jahre Edition are two of BMW’s most anticipated debuts for Monterey. The former coupe is the fastest and most powerful M4 ever made, with 543 horsepower and a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds. On the other hand, classic M car hues like Techno Violet and Deep Interlagos Blue are back for the M3 special edition.
The Cadillac Celestiq, a Future Vision
In July, we got our first virtual look at the stunning Celestiq, a luxury sedan. In Monterey, you can be among the first to see the Celestiq, a luxury SUV with a sleek exterior and a plush interior that includes a massive 55.0-inch touchscreen display.
Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster
What could be more exciting than a hypercar with a top speed of 311 miles per hour and 1,817 horsepower? That same speed sans roof. We don’t know everything about the upcoming Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster, but it will make its debut at Monterey Car Week and we expect most of the same performance figures as the coupe.
DeLorean is back – and the stunning Alpha5 is making its world debut at the Pebble Beach Concours. When it goes into production, the all-electric DeLorean will have a battery capacity of more than 100 kilowatt hours, allowing it to travel 300 miles on a single charge and reach 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds.
Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato / Urus Evo
Lamborghini may debut as many as three new models at Monterey, though this is still up in the air. Lamborghini’s Urus SUV, in one of its many iterations, and the Huracan Sterrato, a high-riding variant of the SUV, will both likely be on display at Pebble Beach.
Air Stealth Edition of Lucid
There will soon be a wicked update to the Lucid Air in Monterey. Up to 35 exterior components, including the fascia, mirror caps, wheels, and spoiler, are finished in black for the new Stealth Edition.
New Version of Meyers Manx
Just like DeLorean, the Meyers Manx is back. This time around, the classic buggy is all electric, boasting a 40 kWh battery pack and a range of 300 miles. But time is of the essence if you want one. For the 2023 model year, the company is only offering 50 units at an undisclosed price.
A Tribute to the Porsche 911 “Sally”
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Pixar film Cars, in which Sally Carrera plays a pivotal role. In celebration, Porsche has unveiled a modern 992–based Sally Tribute 911 at Monterey. As far as we know, it won’t have eyes in the windshield, but it will be painted a light baby blue to evoke the cartoon vehicle.
Series II Rolls-Royce Phantom
At Monterey Car Week, the new Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II is unveiled to the public for the first time. The iconic luxury vehicle receives a facelift for 2023, with a new grille and wheels available alongside an even plusher cabin.
Striker for the Tuatara Soccer Club
The SSC Tuatara, which can reach speeds of 282 miles per hour, is getting a sibling. The new Tuatara, dubbed the Striker, is a track-only model that will be revealed by SSC. At speeds over 160 mph, the Striker’s massive rear wing and abundance of diffuser produce triple the downforce of the standard Tuatara, despite the fact that the car still has 1,750 horsepower.
