Gallery: Monterey's amazing 2019 car week has begun

The Monterey Jet Center was the venue for a host of stars. Ogle them here

  • Monterey's famous 'Car Week' kicks off. Like, this week. Last night, in fact, with the first event taking place at the Monterey Jet Center. As you would expect, the hangar was host to a wide variety of really amazing cars. Indeed, the Jet Center has been the official 'kick-off' event for Monterey's Car Week for nearly three decades.

    So, take a walk with us through some of the stars that were on show.

  • Lamborghini's Countach looking suitably sinister in black.

  • Excuse us while we have a moment. Perhaps several moments. Old racing BMWs with big splitters and wings are a particular weak point for us.

  • Come to think of it, so are Ford GTs with Gulf lettering.

  • Like a lion in the long grass. Or just a Ferrari F12 in... a car park. Same thing.

  • Oh, hey there, McLaren F1 GTR longtail. A GTR with an actual long tail.

  • The McLaren Senna is displeased to see you.

  • Well, it is a 'Jet Center', soo...

  • Singer's Design and Lightweighting Study will never not look amazing.

  • Been a while since we've talked about the Aventador SV, isn't it? Needs talking about more regularly, we feel.

  • Oh hi again, GTR!

  • Remember that crazy restomod Dodge Charger we told you about? Yeah, it was 'ere.

  • It's all gone a bit USA vs Germany, here, hasn't it?

  • Aww, look! It's Volkswagen's electric beach buggy!

  • Excuse us again, for we fear we'll need another few moments to ourselves. Turns out rare, classic Mercs also do funny things to our brains.

  • The Porsche 918 Spyder: still... electric. Sorry.

  • Spkyer Spkyer, Spyker... Grove! (A lot of you won't get that.)

  • McLaren's brand new GT is also displeased to see you.

  • Interesting choice of paint job on this Chiron. Nice, though.

  • A classic Ford Mustang parked next to an old fighter plane. U-S-A! U-S-A!
