Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Announces Cobra class for 2012

     The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance has announced the
featured marques and special classes for its 2012 collector car competition that will be displayed on the 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links on August 19.

     Features for the 62nd annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance include Maharaja Cars and the marques of Mercer and Fiat. Special classes will recognize Saoutchik Coachwork, AC and AC Cobra, Sport Customs, and German motorcycles.

     Special classes they say weill include: "AC and AC (Shelby) Cobra – In 1961, automotive designer Carroll Shelby and AC Cars began a partnership to create a car to compete with Chevrolet’s Corvette. The result was the legendary AC Cobra, also known as the Shelby Cobra, a roadster built from 1962 to 1965."

     Actually Cobras were built until 1967 but otherwise we look forward to the event.
