INFINITI and MotorTrend partnered together once again to bring the world’s premier Japanese car show back to Pebble Beach for 2019. As part of the brand’s celebration of its 30th anniversary, the Japanese Automotive Invitational worked to bring an exciting selection of vintage vehicles together to celebrate the past, present and future of Japanese automotive design.
Progenitors and Icons:
The Pebble Beach event is on the bucket list of every vintage car enthusiast. The best examples of the rarest, most beautiful cars take the fairway to great fanfare – but for too long Japanese examples haven’t had their time in the spotlight.
In 2018, INFINITI and MotorTrend decided to change that and debuted the Japanese Automotive Invitational at Pebble Beach. After an incredible showing, the JAI returned to this year’s 2019 event with a focus on the past, present and future of Japanese design through vintage vehicles, INFINITI’s current lineup and an exclusive glimpse of the future through the Inspiration series of concept vehicles.
Creating the world’s premier Japanese automotive show doesn’t just happen. It’s the result of hard work, dedication and an incredibly detailed curation process. As part of an ongoing close relationship, INFINITI and MotorTrend worked closely to bring the best examples of Japanese design from across the world to Pebble Beach for the second consecutive year.
