2014 Legends of the Autobahn

2014 Legends of the Autobahn Parking

The Legends of the Autobahn event is a relative newcomer to Monterey Car Week. It began in 2009 as a BMW concours, but it slowly expanded by adding Mercedes Benz and Audi. Porsche had their own event this year with the inaugural Werks Reunion (werksreunion.com) which just so happened to be going on at the same time. The BMW Car Club of America,  Mercedes Club of America, and Audi Club of North America were the hosts to this year’s event.

While spectator admission is free, there is a $20 charge for parking. This year the event was moved to the Nicklaus Club-Monterey since the previous location is now hosting the aforementioned Werks Reunion.

With over 66,000 square feet of floor space, they still had plenty of room to give the Mustang a prominent display as well.
