Each year during Monterey Car Week, all the winners of the most prestigious concours of the previous year are brought together for a best-of-the-best shoot-out, judged by the most revered names in the industry.

This year a 1954 Maserati A6GCS Berlinetta won Peninsula Classics Best of the Best Award, following on from its win at the 2016 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.

One of only four Berlinetta-bodied Maserati A6GCS cars produced by Pininfarina, it was first seen as the show car at the 1954 Paris Motor show. The car's first owner was Count Alberto Magi Diligenti of Italy who raced it in period, including a start in the 1955 Mille Miglia. The car is now part of the Monaco-based Destriero Collection.

"I couldn't be happier that the 1954 Maserati A6GCS/53 Berlinetta won The Peninsula Classics Best of the Best Award this year," said Jay Leno.
