Monterey is a city on the edge of California’s rugged central coast. Every year enthusiasts from every corner of the globe descend upon the scenic seaside town to indulge in the most anticipated series of classic-car-focused events of the year. Monterey Car Week brings together the foremost collection of rare and significant automobiles in the world for enthusiasts of all walks of life to enjoy.
One of the greatest stretches of highway passes through the center of Monterey—the legendary Pacific Coastal Highway. It is the longest state road in California, stretching 659 winding miles alongside the Pacific Ocean and bringing travelers along incredible beachfront cliffs, such as Big Sur, on its way north to the Golden Gate Bridge. The roadway is an utter joy to drive in any automobile, but perhaps the greatest way to explore each and every curve of the PCH is behind the wheel of a sports car engineered to make the most of each mile of this intoxicating roadway.
