A few days ago, we attended the Chicago Auto Show. First staged in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America and has been held more times than any other auto exposition on the continent. This year marks the 106th edition of this show and we are quite pleased with what we saw. The Chicago Auto Show utilizes more than 1 million square feet in the North and South Exhibit Halls of the McCormick Place convention center. At the show we witnessed multiple global and North American new car launches; a complete range of domestic and imported passenger cars and trucks; sport utility vehicles; and experimental or concept cars. With a 1,000 different vehicles on display as well as numerous accessories and auto-related exhibits, racing competition vehicles and project, antique and collector cars, the Chicago Auto Show was a threat for the eyes. On the wrist an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Safari ref. 26170ST.OO.D091CR.01 was our companion and our shirt even matched the so many blue cars that were on display including the Porsche 911 you can see below.
Some of the new automobiles that were showcased at the show and that we were eager to experience include the new Porsche Macan, the new Rolls-Royce Wraith with 624 hp and a price tag of $364,125 USD, the new Maserati GranTurismo, the new entry level Maserati Ghibli priced right at $66,900 USD, the uncleaned SRT that finished 3rd at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the new Jaguar F-Type starting at $65,000 USD, the new BMW M4 Coupé and the 2015 M3, the new BMW 2 Series, the fully electric BMW I8 and I3, the F1 Infiniti Red Bull Racing Car driven by Sebastian Vettel, the new Mercedes-Benz CLA, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT 'Gullwing', one of the Mazda SKYACTIV Mazda6 prototypes from the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, an iconic 1963 Corvette Stingray and even a very interesting Honda FCEV concept car. Now, enjoy the images.
