Camaro looks stunning in that dark shade.
Whats wrong with Captiva? Looks so dull with those changes.

Now comes the best part of this year's auto show, Ford's display of Shelby GT 500. I may be biased because I drive a mustang myself. Ford said the new Shelby produces a massive 650 hp and 600 lb/ft of torque. 1st gear can handle upto 63 mph and 3rd gear upto 135 mph. Ford also tested the Shelby GT500 on dyno with huge applause from the crowd.

And the Captiva shown in those pictures is actually a rebadged Saturn Vue that was discontinued in 2010 when GM killed Saturn brand. Looks like GM is trying to use those surplus parts (GM is well known for badge engineering).

It is the facelifted Honda Pilot. That grill looks much better than 2011 model.

The American Market will continue to lap up the trucks and SUVs, global warming be damned!

Let's hope they've made these gas-guzzlers a little eco-friendly. But that's like putting 'The Big Show' on a Subway diet and expecting results in a matter of days.

I hope Chevrolet give us this Captiva, instead of the opened-jaw face-lift Captiva that's in the pipeline. Not only does this one look proportioned, the design of that goatee-grille on the 'other' Captiva is kinda getting stale. Now that almost every other car has it. Not to mention the fact that the face-lifted Captiva slated for launch in India looks highly disproportionate, with that angry front-end that doesn't seem to gel well enough with the rest of the sober lines of the cross-over.

Hyundai displayed an interesting turbo version of the little veloster.
Some pics of next gen Acura RDX and Audis.

Default My visit to the Chicago Auto Show 2012

Yesterday was the last day of the Chicago Auto Show and I finally managed to pay a visit. I am uploading some pictures that I was able to click. There was a mad rush and I apologize if the quality of the pictures is not good.
Hope you guys like them.

Have always failed to understand whats with some men and mazda miata. Look at how in the first picture the father looks longingly at the miata and seems to be forgetting that he has a kid in his hands.

I for one wouldnt be caught dead in a miata.

Honda infact had a fairly nice display. They had Ridgeline sport, facelifted Pilot, 2013 RDX and 2013 ILX compact sedan.
