“The Horch has wonderful lines, a great proven chassis and all the beauty that make it the whole package,” said Lee, who also won best of show at Pebble Beach in 2006. “Pebble Beach is the greatest car show in the world and winning here is indescribable. It’s been a wonderful day for us here and I have the best team to thank for making it happen.”

Competitors from 30 states and 19 countries brought their prized vehicles to the event, which was held along the 18th fairway of the Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Proceeds from raffles, auctions, sponsorships and gate receipts helped bring inmore than $1 million to charity.

Former Tonight Show host Jay Leno brought a 1928 Bugatti Type 37A 2 Seat Sports to Pebble Beach and was a guest auctioneer. Jerry Seinfeld was also a Concours participant, receiving second place in the Porsche class with his 1970 Porsche 908/03 Spyder.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger also participated on stage, auctioning off his signed bomber jacket, which raised $30,000 for charity.

The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance was celebrating its 59th year.
