The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering

© Mike MeredithExercise in Exclusivity
Among the dozens of events that occur during the Monterey Motoring Week in August, none is more lavish or exclusive than The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering. Now in its 13th year, The Quail has limited tickets available and thus it sells out every time. Located at Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, the event combines the finest automobiles with luxury lifestyle brands and gourmet food that represents the cities of The Peninsula Hotels: Chicago, New York, Beverly Hills, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Paris.

Most luxury automakers have a presence at The Quail, and several unveiled new vehicles, including the world debut of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce Roadster, the West Coast debut of the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 and the American launch of David Brown Automotive’s Speedback GT.
