Default Some Pics from the Chicago Auto Show (Feb 2013)

I had been to the Chicago Auto show on Sunday, February 10th. Uploading a few snaps from the show here.

The first two pics are of the new Corvette Stingray.

The third pic is the SRT Viper, the Corvette's most natural competitor.

The fourth pic is the Honda EVSter Concept.

The fifth, sixth and seventh pic are from the Jeep offroad experience inside the show venue - pretty awesome the whole experience was.

The 8th pic is the Lexus LF-LC concept.

The 9th pic is the Mercedes Benz Concept Style coupe.

The 10th and 12th pic are different versions of the Mclaren MP12 - Coupe and spyder.

The 11th pic is the Cadillac ELR - based on the Chevy volt.

Enjoy the pics.

Thanks for the pics. The Corvette Stingray looks great. Hope it looks even better in person.

Do you have more pics of LF-LC and Merc Coupe?

The Stingray and the Viper - both look pretty outlandish and great in person. Even better than the videos and pics. So understandably, there were so many people all over either car at the show. I have a few more pics of both the Merc and the LF, I will post later.

I don't know if the MB concept is the CLA, but It sure has the very similar dimensions and proportions. It had some outrageous styling on it as well.

I am pretty sure the Stingray and the Viper were star of the show. I read in a news too that the crowd around Stingray was crazy at all times.

CLA shown is a sedan and not a coupe as you mentioned. I can see 2 doors and 2 door handles in the pic you have taken.

The MB-Concept shown is indeed the CLA. As for the size, i think its about the size of c-class. The overall dimensions of the CLA250 are 182.3″ long, 80″ wide, and 56.6″ high, slightly longer, wider and taller than the current C-Class. It has 30mm more room than C-Class. So i think the next gen C-Class will increase in space and size in order to justify the higher price. Can't wait to see one in showroom. Looks awesome.

Edit: Attached here is the measurement of CLA. Looks like the rear legroom is just 21mm less than e-class and 30mm more than C-Class.

It definitely has 2 doors on each side, but they have called it concept coupe.

Checkout this story from motortrend - Mercedes Concept Coupe - First look

The other stars of the show were the driving experience events held by the Chrysler - Fiat group and Toyota. The venues were setup inside the auto show area to demonstrate some of the key benefits of the cars. Quite something to go so elaborate in an indoor setting.

Yes mercedes is notorious for giving absurd names. They did the same with CLS Sedan. Don't know why they call it coupe when it is a proper four sedan.

Similarly, with the new engines, they still use the old moniker of 63,65 when new engines are 5.5 liters.

As promised (and much delayed), here are some more pics of the LF-LC and the Merc Concept Coupe..

The Merc has door handles like the Tesla and very interesting ORVM styling, which will probably never make it to production car.
