Each year in August the car hobby goes crazy on the Monterey Peninsula in Northern California - auctions, car shows, historic races and of course the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. As always, Meguiar's was there in force and this thread will hopefully give all of you a chance to see some of the action that goes on through the week.
We start with an unusual event for us - Ferrari's private, invitation only launch party for the all new F12 berlinetta super car. We prepped and maintained just a couple of cars here, but as this was a critically important event for Ferrari, that made it important for us, too.
Ferrari erected an unusual tent for the event, on private grounds in a large upscale community near the Quail Golf Course.
This being Ferrari, of course there was a Formula 1 race car on display outside.
Inside, guests were treated to regular presentations on the new F12, touting the incredible engineering that goes into this amazing car.
This crowd may not look all that large, but consider that this presentation was done every hour on the hour for three days straight and the numbers certainly added up!
Following each presentation, a member of the audience was asked to help pull the cover off the F12.
The new F12 berlinetta. 740HP out of 12 naturally aspirated cylinders, this is said to be the fastest, most powerful road car Ferrari has ever built.
The wall displays showed off both leather and paint choices available for the car.
Following the F12 presentation, guests were ushered back to the next room where Ferrari discussed their "Tailor Made" program. As the name implies, Ferrari will tailor your new car to suit your particular wants and desires. You name it - color, fabric, texture, trim material, stitching, whatever - and they'll make it for you. Centered in the room was this new Ferrari FF.
