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 meteoric rise back into the supercar prominence came as a result of a disruption of the norm. The MP4-12C stepped in to face established competitors from others such as Ferrari, and squared off against the Italians heroically.

The New York Bay was the gateway to the United States for millions of immigrants over the course of several decades. The city became the welcome site for the rest of the world.
It’s fitting, then, that the New York Auto Show has established itself as the premier way for car companies to usher their new vehicles into the domestic market as well. From the mass production cars that fill the streets to the hypercars that may only be seen in a venue like this, it’s the hot spot for showcasing the present and future of motoring, and has been for over a century at North America’s first and largest-attended auto show.
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.
