Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival 2012
Held August 15th at the Monterey Jet Center in Monterey, California, USA. Featured the North American premier of the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish.
The 2012 Monterey Car Week glamour has officially begun with the 2012 Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival. For many, the McCall Motorworks Revival at The Jet Center marks the real start of Monterey Car Week. With exotics, hypercars, private jets, military aircraft and even amphibious vehicles this is a scene you need to experience at least once.
Prominent brands included Pagani, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Lotus and Maserati. That of course doesn’t include the Embraer, Gulfstream and Tempus Jets teams that were on show with their high-end jets for the ultra-rich.
We mentioned earlier that Aston Martin made the U.S debut of their all-new Vanquish for the first time. There was a cool version of the car that showed the sophisticated and very light chassis, where you could see the naked aluminium structure.
Lamborghini also had a strong presence with their Urus SUV, two limited edition Gallardos and the crazy Sesto Elemento. Hennessey’s latest Venom GT was also around. Taking centre stage on the tarmac was Lexus with a large display that included the LF-A sports car and the latest generation LS.
The recent passing of Carroll Shelby and the 50th anniversary anniversary of his Cobra was also marked at the Motorworks Revival. In a nice touch, the very last car to arrive was the original Cobra prototype, which had always been part of the late Carroll Shelby’s private collection.
