8th Legends of the Autobaun: Celebrating German Automotive Engineering

Monterey CA, Aug 14 2015 - The Legends of the Autobahn returned this year to the prestigious Nicklaus Club-Monterey in Monterey, California, during the famed Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance week. The event is described by Eddy Funahashi and Frank Patek, and joined on the field by noted automotive knowlogist Keith Martin - Sports Car Market.

Although the Legends of the Autobahn is still a relatively recent arrival on the Monterey scene, it has sustained exponential growth since its 2009 debut as a stand-alone BMW concours. Event organizers, recognizing the potential for a “German alternative” event during the annual Monterey Sports Car Weekend, invited the Mercedes-Benz club for the 2010 event—an expansion so well received that we were pleased to announce the addition of Audi in 2012.
