The Concept Lawn at Pebble Beach has again improved the phrase, "a gathering of exotics." Even if we've seen most of them before in other places, where else in the world would you see them not just in one place, but right next to one another in a space about as big as a suburban back yard?

Although its design prominently displays a number of its supercar inspirations, the Icona Vulcano puts them together so well that few would complain. It didn't swim alone in the deep end of the exotic pool, joined by the Aston Martin CC100 and Lamborghini Veneno concepts, and the absurdly absurd Laraki Motors Epitome.

Slightly closer to Earth hovered the DB9 Spyder Zagato Centennial, BMW Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe, Jaguar Project 7, Superleggera Disco Volante Touring, Galpin Ford coachbuilt GTR1, the and the Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis concept. Projects that were signposts to production cars included the Acura NSX, Lincoln MKC and Mercedes-Benz GLA concepts, and out back behind The Lodge, a Porsche 918 Sypder with its roof on.

The road-car ranks were no less Spyker B6 Venator Spyder concept, a concept in name only, the Aston Martin Vanquish Volante, an SRT Viper GTS refusing to be intimidated, the Rolls-Royce Wraith, a 1963 Lamborghini 350 GTV, Saleen George Follmer Edition Mustang and a Bentley Mulsanne Le Mans Limited Edition parked next to one of its forebears, a Bentley 4-1/2-Litre Supercharged.

Incredibly, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse Legend edition dedicated to Jean-Pierre Wimille didn't make the party. You can check out those who did attend in the high-res gallery above.
