Ushering in the next generation of the most desirable luxury and supercars in the world has become the norm at Monterey’s car week, but it wasn’t always that way. The Pebble Beach Concours, the fireworks display at the finale of the weekend, was the celebration of decades of historic and significant vehicles, but up-and-coming events like The Quail Motorsports Gathering have shifted the focus to the new era of exotic cars.

McLaren’s recent surge back into the supercar market put its competitors, such as Ferrari, on notice. Since, however, the brands have co-existed in many showcases with one being the Reading Concours held by the Ferrari Club of North America. McLaren’s inclusion for the past handful of years has strengthened the breadth of the event and given some diversity to an event filled with red cars as far as the eye can see. At least, until your eyes fixate on the centerpiece fountain in front of the castle-like clubhouse of the Reading Country Club.
McLaren Philadelphia will be in attendance along with Maserati of The Main Line, certainly a noted family member of Ferrari.
The RDS Automotive Group will be joining the local group of automotive enthusiasts for another iteration of Cars and Coffee. Similar events we’ve attended included the Lehigh Valley, Ocean City, NJ and even Maryland, and now the widespread craze of casual car meet-ups will take to the historic Navy Yard in Philadelphia.
Maserati is setting off into uncharted territory with its new SUV, the Levante, but it’s not going in without any experience. For the first time in more than 100 years, the brand is applying the sophistication and passion found in its sports and luxury cars into the SUV platform.
The car thermometer reads barely into double digits, and the lingering remnants of a major snowstorm heed caution on the roadways. The textbook recommendation is for all-wheel drive or dedicated winter tires. We have neither.
The Maserati GranTurismo was slated as an ultra-luxury coupe with room for four full-size people, a car with the docility to be used every day or one that would comfortably cradle its occupants through long journeys. But it no doubt had true Italian flair with its sex appeal and sinful exhaust tones.
For many Maserati clients, they wanted less of the former and much, much more of the latter.
The ultra-performance luxury SUV market has largely been untapped up to this point. That makes the challenge of building the right one rather daunting.
With little to base the product on, it’s quite iffy to dive into that segment without a solid gameplan. Lamborghini, famous for its street-terrorizing supercars, is flirting with the idea and Bentley is looking to mix up its lineup of performance grand tourers with the new Bentayga. But the brand with perhaps the best experience to take on the task is Maserati.
The Radnor Hunt Club sits among the undisturbed natural terrain of Chester County, and its preserved state offers the perfect setting for equestrianism, similar to how it provided the scene in the late 1800s as the oldest foxhunt in the United States.
The club’s presence as one of the most cherished institutions in the region makes it one of the most desirable locations for special events. Perhaps, though, there is no event more special than the Concours d’Elegance.
