Pebble Beach 2018 highlights

Everything you need to know about the big PB announcements

Reckon you missed one of the major announcements from Pebble Beach? There were plenty, so we’ve put them all in one place.

You’re welcome!

BMW Z4 M40i First Edition

The much-anticipated new BMW Z4 has finally been revealed after a long wait, with its reveal at Pebble Beach also serving as the announcement of its first variant, the 250kW BMW Z4 M40i First Edition.

Audi PB18 e-tron concept

The Audi PB18 e-tron concept has made its debut, giving us a 570kW glimpse at what the future of Audi performance looks like. Audi says 0-100km/h takes just over 2 seconds.

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

The specs for the Nürburgring record-holder are impressive, as its atmo V12 peaks at 566kW and hits 8500rpm, while a dry weight of 1525kg allows the SVJ to hit 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds.

Project Gold: Rebuilt Porsche 993 911 Turbo

‘New’ Porsche 993 911 Turbo restored using the original shell of a 993-gen Turbo, and a plethora of Porsche’s genuine parts. It’s to be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta in October.

Bugatti Divo

The Divo is to be a more corner-focused car than Bugatti’s previous vehicles, which have been primarily known for breaking top speed records. With the top speed of the Divo limited to 380km/h, it will rely on its improved downforce and handling characteristics to impress.

McLaren 600LT MSO

The sinister Stealth Grey 600LT was designed to showcase the extreme customisation possibilities of the McLaren Special Operations, drawing from their ‘Defined’ and ‘Bespoke’ lines. – Wheels

Mercedes-Benz EQ Silver Arrow Concept

This retro-inspired single-seater is a glorious, jaw-dropping nod to the Mercedes-Benz W125 racer of 1937. Power comes courtesy of a 550kW electric drivetrain, with a range of over 400km. – Wheels

2019 Honda NSX

Updated hybrid supercar scores slightly different look and revised chassis tuning which the company hopes will make the NSX more dynamic.

Ferrari 488 Pista Spider

It’s the 50th drop-top Ferrari has built in its seven-decade history, and the second model to utilise Ferrari’s most powerful V8 ever after the Pista Coupe.

Ford GT Heritage Edition

Gulf Livery honours 50th anniversary of the Le Mans winning 1968 Ford GT40. Awesome.

McLaren 720S GT3

Long awaited race version of 720S finally hits the track in the metal for testing. More than ninety per cent of the 720S’s components have been changed or optimised in some way for the GT3 version.

Hennessey Venom F5 engine details

Over 1193kW, and a total of 1763Nm. Those are the claimed figures behind the 7.6-litre twin-turbo V8 mounted in the Hennessey Venom F5. Does it look familiar to you..?

SSC Tuatara

The American hypercar, expected to challenge the Hennessey Venom F5 for the title of Fastest US-built car, utilises a 1.3MW (1305kW) 5.9-litre twin-turbo V8, which redlines at 8800rpm and runs on either E85 or premium unleaded (on which it makes 1006kW).
