The 2016 Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance provided this years concours participants with a chance to show that not only were their cars immaculately presented but that they were in good working order too. Sir Stirling joined Justin Bell in a Mercedes-Benz 300SL at the head of the tour. 

Normally, participation in the Tour d'Elegance gives a car an advantage when it comes to the concours judging on the Sunday. Because of a revised route this year, to prevent the tour from interfering with firefighters working to control a nearby wildfires, the judging advantage was removed.

The 2016 tour covered 37 miles, including 17-Mile Drive through Pebble Beach, and ended as it always does in Carmel, where the cars line the streets giving the public up-close access. Highlights from the cars taking part in the tour this year can be found above.
