I got to spend the early part of this week working at the 2011 Detroit Autoshow. Working the show definitely has its benefits, the biggest one being able to get in before the show is open to the public. Thats right, no one stepping in front of the cars right before you press the shutter, no crying kids, no stupid people posing in cars they will only dream about owning someday. Working the show does have its downsides as well, mainly being you constantly get asked where the bathrooms are. I don't blame them though, it took me a good hour to find them too! My bladder was pretty happy when I finally did!
So if you didn't have a chance to checkout the show in Detroit this year, hopefully these photos will highlight what you missed (technically, as of this writing, the show is still open). I highly recommend it for any car guru, gearhead, or anyone that enjoys seeing state of the art automotive design. Enjoy!
Mercedes had a pretty awesome display
Lovin the new Audi R8 GT (and pretty much anything at the audi booth)
The new Mercedes SLS
The old Mercedes gulwing
Yup, thats a Bentley!
Lexus LFA anyone?
It deserved another shot...
This was probably one of my favorite cars there, the new Maserati Gran Turismo S
Ever seen those ken block videos? Yup thats the car!
This Mayback was probably the biggest "car" I've ever seen! Ridiculous!
I was sold after sitting in the massaging rear seats of the new Hyundai Equus, only $310,000 less than the Maybach, and pretty much the same features set!
The other end of the automotive spectrum
Tesla Roadster, the only electric car I wouldn't mind having
Audi R8 V10 GT
Hello potential next car
LED overload at the lexus display
LOVE the matte finish on the new Mercedes E-class AMG
