‘Tis the season for car shows, and for visitors to the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California, thrills were to be had. The yearly charitable event, held in Pebble Beach — famous for its golfing background — is considered to be one of the most prestigious auto events in the world. Celebrities are often in high concentration, and some of the world’s most unique, rare, and expensive cars are on display for the world to see.

For auto buffs, Pebble Beach is definitely the place to be this time of year. Collectors from the world over bring their Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Aston Martins, and everything else you can imagine for others to gawk at, and for a lucky few, place bids and take those cars home. It’s also a great chance for the world’s premiere automakers to showcase new and exciting technologies and concepts.

Of the myriad of vehicles to check out, we dug in and chose to highlight seven of the coolest cars that were on display. Of course, there are a hundred vehicles that deserve a spot on the list, but it had to be whittled down somehow. The list includes concepts and vehicles that are about to enter production from several different companies. There’s even a car from a video game that has been given a spark of life in the physical world.
