The Most Exciting Car at the Detroit Auto Show | Blogs | Vanity Fair

Reflecting a resurgent optimism in the automotive industry, a surfeit of slaver-worthy vehicles are receiving their world premieres at this year’s North American International Auto Show, which opens to the public this weekend at Detroit’s COBO Center. BMW is showing its newest benchmark sports sedan, the 3-Series, Mercedes is unveiling the latest in its six decade-long line of grand touring roadsters in the new SL550, and Bentley is launching an “efficient” twin-turbo V-8 in its new Continental GT. Lexus and Acura are both introducing sinewy hybrid sports cars which will hopefully expunge their brand’s current bland and/or ludicrous styling language. Chevy and Ford are each set to reveal their most powerful pony cars ever, a 580 horsepower Camaro and a 650 (!) horsepower Mustang. And even Dodge has a slick new compact, the Dart, based on a platform borrowed from Alfa Romeo via their shared corporate overlord, Fiat.
