We drove the new 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek several weeks back, and now we have full pricing

Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance

Several billion dollars' in net worth descended on Pebble Beach, California, last weekend for the Concours d'Elegance. And although everyone was there to check out the old cars, automakers also took the wraps off some new cars:

Rolls-Royce revealed the Phantom Coupe Aviator Collection, of which it will make 35

Bentley unveiled the Mulsanne Convertible Concept, but didn't allow cameras and didn't provide photos (but we have sketches!)

The McLaren X-1 Concept is a one-off supercar created at the request of a buyer who wishes to remain anonymous (McLaren also showed the 12C Can-Am Edition Racing Concept)

The limited-edition 2013 SRT Viper GTS Launch Edition will feature what's sure to feel like unlimited power from a 640-horsepower, 8.4-liter V10

The 2013 Fiat 500 Turbo will start around $20,000 and offer a power bump of more than 30 percent -- to a full 135 horsepower
