Big news of the Monterey week is that a post-war car has won the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance’s Best of Show, that being the 1954 Ferrari 375 MM Coupé Scaglietti owned by Jon Shirley.
To do so it won the Ferrari Grand Touring class and was selected by the Honorary Judges among all the 26 other class winners.
To see what Jon’s car was up against we have assembled a gallery page with all 27 first class winners which were judged to be the best of their breed by chief class judges and their teams.
This Ferrari, chassis 0402AM, was specially-built for Italian film director Roberto Rossellini on a repurposed 375 MM race car chassis. It is one of only a few Scaglietti-styled road cars that was restored most recently by Dennison International Motorsports.
Ferrari’s somewhat dominated the Monterey car week. Bonhams broke the record for a motor car at auction with the $38,000,000 Ferrari 250 GTO and RM fetched $26 for a Ferrari 275 GTB/C Speciale.
Later in the week we will have a more comprehensive gallery including all the cars from Pebble Beach.
