Supercars that Graced the Lawn of Pebble Beach

George Kennedy
19 August 2013

The Pebble Beach Concours may be a celebration of all things vintage, but that does not stop a small number of new cars debuts. There is a very select list of automakers for which the participants and attendees of Pebble Beach are their target demographic. You may not see a mass-market family sedan unveiled in Monterey, but limited-run supercars are right at home among the pre-war racing icons. Here are three new debuts from Pebble Beach:

In the world of limited-run performance machines, hyperbole is king. Every car has to be ‘the best’ or the ‘most exclusive,’ so naming your $2,000,000, Corvette-based “Epitome” seems only fitting. The Irvine, CA-based Laraki, has taken the Corvette’s 7.0-liter V8, and fitted on a pair of turbochargers. The result? Horsepower of 1,750 and a torque figure of 2,800 pound feet. Only nine examples will be built, and be capable of top speeds over 200 mph.

 2013 Spyker B6 Venator Spyder:

Spyker has never been known for subtle styling, but in this league of hypercars, one could arguably call styling of the B6 Venator Spyder Concept ‘reserved.’ As a convertible version of its latest offering, the Venator Spyder delivers an all-carbon fiber body on top of an aluminum chassis. Head and taillights feature LED light rails, while the taillights are said to look like jet afterburners. The mid-mounted V6 engine makes 375 horsepower and fetch $150,000 when it does on sale worldwide in 2014, followed by a US debut in 2015.

 2013 Icona Vulcano:

The Icona Vulcano combines Italian-inspired design with the engineering background of years of World Rally Championship racing. This two-seat sportscar features a V12 engine combined with an electric-hybrid powertrain capable of a combined 900 horsepower.

The combination allows it to reach 200 km/h (124 mph) in just ten seconds on its way to a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). That kind of speed will silence any critic of the use of a hybrid drivetrain. (Note: See if you can spot the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class in the background!)

A beacon of design.
