Monterey Automotive Week, including the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, will take place on California's Monterey Peninsula in August. There will be various concept and new model world premieres, including a special edition of the Mulsanne as a way to generate fresh interest in this almost decade-old car.

Bentley Mulsanne W.O. Edition (2019): the marque's largest, most expensive sedan has been in production since 2009 and likely to have a successor in 2019. So to lift interest in this model, Bentley is building 100 cars, each fitted with a tiny piece of a crankshaft from an 8 Litre car owned by Walter Owen Bentley himself.

BMW Z4 (2019): it's been in development since 2012 so long overdue; in contrast to the previous Z4, G29 will have a fabric roof; a concept was revealed at the previous Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in August 2017; Magna Steyr will build it; no official news as yet on where and when Toyota will first exhibit the Supra.

Mercedes-Benz Aesthetics Progressive Luxury concept: after Infiniti revealed its own take on the Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz racers from the long-ago past at the 2017 Concours, now Daimler reclaims its heritage in the form of what will at first be a sculpture. An EQ-branded single seater evolved from this might follow.

Pininfarina Automobili PF0 (2021): the Munich-based start-up is funded by Pininfarina and its parent Mahindra. It will "offer a range of extremely luxurious and high-performance EV cars designed and built in a close partnership with Pininfarina SpA". The first of those is codenamed PF0 and will be an ultra-low volume, ultra-luxurious fully-electric hypercar. The first cars will be delivered to owners "in less than two years".
