This year, new vehicles from Lamborghini, Audi, and BMW arrived in Monterey. The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion kicked off Monterey Car Week. The Reunion in Laguna Seca kicked off the auto show activities on August 17th, and concluded with the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance over the weekend.
Since the event’s beginning in 1974, Laguna Seca has been the host venue. Originally a one-day affair, the racing festival has expanded to four days and now attracts the crème de la crème of vintage racers, celebrities, live entertainment, and delectable food.
This year’s prominent topic is the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which is among the vintage steel. Numerous elements from the renowned French endurance race can be found all over the property, including a sizable tent filled with the classic Le Mans vehicles and run groups organised according to the years in which they participated in the competition. Both true and magnificent, they exist.
Over 500 vintage cars crowded Laguna Seca as drivers attacked the 2.2-mile course. Rides from the Trans Am, Formula 1, SCCA, IMSA, and other regulating organisations took to the Californian warmth. Celebrities frequently drive cars; two instances include Jim Farley, the CEO of Ford, who drives a Cobra, and Adam Carolla, who drives a Porsche 935 with Hawaiian Tropic livery.
Featuring automakers including Audi, BMW, Hennessey Performance Engineering, Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce, and many others during this year’s Monterey automobile event, here were some of the automobiles revealed during the 2022 Monterey Car Week – from electric supercars to modernised vintages.
Here are just 5 of the endless list of cars featured at MCW 2022:
- Lucid Group, the Sapphire Air – The Sapphire Air includes standard carbon ceramic brakes, Aero Sapphire wheels, and Michelin PS4S tyres with sizes 265/35R20 up front and 295/30R21 down back. To further improve the car’s aerodynamic performance, these wheels come with detachable carbon-fiber aero disc wheel covers.
- Kia EV6 GT – The company’s well-received all-electric hatchback receives a significant performance boost in this vehicle. That translates to 576 horsepower, making it the most potent Kia production vehicle to date.
- Lincoln’s Model L100
The electric sedan’s incredibly long coach doors spread out as the entire roof rises, letting you enter and stroll onto the full exhibition floor with all the beauty of the EVs’ appearance. Two spacious couches can be set up inside in a face-to-face configuration while the Model L100 is allowed to operate autonomously.
- Acura ZDX
Acura is finally making the switch to electric vehicles, and while we still have to wait a few more years for the automaker’s first production EV—now officially known as the Acura ZDX—we do know some of the design cues. That was hinted at by the Acura Precision EV Concept, one of the automaker’s noteworthy design studies that displayed a fresh look from what we’ve come to expect from Honda’s luxury performance brand.
- McLaren’s Solus GT – The Solus GT is actually a concept automobile that McLaren created for “Gran Turismo SPORT” a few years ago that was later turned into a production vehicle.
