Default The San Francisco Auto Show!

So it took place in the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Downtown San Francisco is one of the most alive and beautiful places I have yet seen. The Auto Show was huge with over 800 cars from 40 different manufacturers.
The overall lighting inside the show hall was pathetic which ruined all my images, well nearly!
Here are some of the pictures:

Mercedes-Benz CL 550


Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
(That grey just does not do justice to the car)


Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder


Ferrari 612


Bentley Continental GTC


Camaro Concept (Stunning)


Aston Martin V8 Vantage


Dodge Tomahawk Concept (Mad!)


Tesla Roadster


Fiat 1100 (I was so happy to see this one here)


Shelby GT 500


Porsche 911 Turbo


Lotus Exige

The Camaro concept looked really gud..!! Not that the others dint.. just that i love the Camaro clan. Was totally in love with the Camaro Z28 during my schooling days in Dubai.

Man the Camaro is hot!!

If they make it as it is now, Man i would buy one and import a tuned out version into india immediately, but the sad part is, the prod version will look as good but wouldnt have that high quality effect this concept has..

Damn that Camaro is one Hot looking car!! Wish it was available in RHD so we could see some here!! Can't believe Dodge is still strutting the Tomahawk concept around, didn't they make it like 2 or 3 year back for the Detroit show?

How did you find the CL & the Tesla Stratos? Is the CL a patch on the old one as far as looks go?

And last but not the least what the hell was the 1100 doing there?

I saw an AMG kitted new CL this weekend in LA and boy is it a stunner!!
I have always had a soft spot for the old CL but this one is very different from it and a head turner in its own respect.
Its hard to compare which one is better, the old was elegant, this one is more on the sporty side.

THe CL from the front and side looks nice, but the back is too bland. Frankly it doesnot look like a Mercedes from the back. They could have done a better job.

Tesla is a very nice excercise taking the fact into consideration that it is 100% environmentally friendly sportscar. Looks 90% like the elise.

Its funny to see Lamborghinis and Ferraris in Silver and Metallic Greys and subdued colors and Aston Martins in Bright Yellow. Winds of change ..?
