Monterey, California – On August 14, 2019, McCall’s Motorworks Revival will celebrate Monterey Car Week with several featured vehicles for its 28th Anniversary celebration at Monterey Jet Center in Monterey, California.

Prodigious cars such as the BMW 320 Turbo by Jim Busby Racing in the IMSA GTX series will be in attendance Several innovative business aircraft including the Embraer Legacy 500 midsize business jet, and the innovative turbine-powered Pilatus PC-12 NG will be in attending.

The exquisite cars

One of only two lightweight BMW 320 Turbos ever built, this car debuted in 1978 in FIA Group 5 competition before being sold to Jim Busby Racing in California for the 1979 IMSA GTX season.

Until the late 1980s this lightweight tube-frame chassis, advanced aerodynamics and a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder M12 engine built by McLaren, this 320 Turbo was a solid competitor in both IMSA and Australian GT racing. Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cars scheduled to appear at McCall’s Motorworks Revival 2019 is a replica of the 1935 Bugatti Aerolithe. This replica is built with an original Bugatti Type 57 chassis, engine and running gear and features a hand-formed magnesium body made using the same methods as the original car. “We couldn’t be prouder of the incredible vehicles scheduled for our 2019 event,” said Gordon McCall, founder of the McCall’s Motorworks Revival. “The strength of our event has always been the eclectic variety and rarity of its aircraft, motorcycles, and automobiles, and we’re confident this year’s 28th annual event will keep that tradition going strong!” In addition to the iconic cars on display, the event will feature several of the latest business aircraft on display.
