The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and all the festivities around Monterey, California, during Car Week transform the peninsula into an open-air car museum. Nearly every event—and there are many—is packed with one-of-a-kind cars you may never see again or that you've only seen in books. This weekend, our editors will share the most interesting, wild, and beautiful cars, and we invite you to join us through the weekend. So put on your salmon-colored pants or seersucker suit and join us in looking at some amazing cars. — Car and Driver

Genesis just unveiled the G70 GT4 Gran Turismo concept, built on a production G70, street-parking it in Monterey for bystanders to gawk. Although the company isn’t making any official announcements, they're clearly getting the racing itch. No other detail was given, so I guess we’ll have to wait for it to show up in the Gran Turismo video-game franchise to figure out its power and performance. — Dave VanderWerp
Oh, hey, there’s a Ferrari SF90, the car that just ascended to the top of our all-time zero-to-60-mph leaderboard with a 2.0-second performance.
As part of the festivities surrounding the launch of the NSX Type S, Acura brought a number of NSXs to drive. I gravitated toward this 60,000-mile '91 for a reminder of the glorious intake roar from the 8000-rpm V-6 and the purity of its manual steering and 3000-pound weight. (Also to remind myself how much I miss the one I sold a couple years ago.) It’s truly one of the greats.

This is Monterey Car Week, where cars that you’ve never seen in person suddenly appear in multiples. Like these two Pagani Huayra BCs, a coupe (one of 20) and a roadster (one of 40). Of course, there’s another Huayra parked a few spots down, too. — Dave VanderWerp

Driving the legendary Ford GT on Highway 1 is the stuff of dreams, although I didn't expect to need to use a throw pillow to fit in the driver's seat. — Elana Scherr
Aston Martin is celebrating 70 years importing cars to the U.S. at Pebble this weekend, starting by showing off the Valhalla, for the first time in North America, as well as the Valkyrie Spider. Aston has a house and outdoor exhibition space on the 18th hole of the Pebble Beach golf course and is hosting a huge bash at The Quail Motorsports Gathering on Friday. — Sharon Silke Carty
There are a lot of ways to get to Monterey, California. Driving up Highway 1 in a 2002 Mercedes SL500 Silver Arrow is by no means the worst of them.
And it gets even better, or at least more thematic, when you're chasing a 2005 SL55 AMG and a 1969 280SL.
Of course, the rule of Car Week is: Whatever you're driving, someone's got something rarer and wilder, and they're about to pass you. — Elana Scherr
