“Every year, the richest of the rich from around the world gather on the lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to show their motorcars. And it does not matter how wealthy or powerful the owners are the judges decide whose car is best. This year, that car is a 1-off 1932 Duesenberg J Figoni Sports Torpedo”–Paul Ebeling

Finishing 10 days of Monterey Classic Car Week events, Sunday’s Concours d’Elegance showcased 200 of the world’s Top collector cars on the Pebble Beach Golf Links, all restored to the highest degree.

Best of Show honors went to a 1932 Duesenberg J Figoni Sports Torpedo owned by Lee R. Anderson Sr. of Naples, Florida.

The Model J was the most powerful and exclusive American car of the era, with a racing-derived straight-eight engine that produced such power it was a standard deviation above any of its contemporary competitors. Model Js were available from the factory as a rolling chassis only. While most were bodied by Top-tier American coachbuilders, this rare coupe was the work of famed Parisian coachbuilder Joseph Figoni, who created a torpedo-tailed roadster. Relish the beauty, proportion, and perfection of this azure Duesey, the sculptural forms of which would be as appropriate in a museum as any Rodin or Serra.

This mornings walk…

Have a prosperous week, the Chaos is over!
