Arrow 2010 Auto Show - Minneapolis

Hello All

This year in Minneapolis, the Auto Show was just another event. Same cars as the previous year's -- though with a few exceptions like the redesigned Audi A8 and Jaguar XJ.

So I didn't take many pictures. Its almost like looking at last year's cars, which is like looking up my last year's pics (2009 Auto Show - Minneapolis).

Its absurd, BMW didn't even bother attending the show this year. Looks like they know where to spend their money -- they just built up the largest indoor automobile showroom in the world couple months ago in Minneapolis (details here).

But anyway, here are a few from this year's event that caught my attention nevertheless. Perhaps you might enjoy them.

By the way, some of those pics may look weird, but that's because they are HDR (High Dynamic Range) images -- merged from 3 different exposures. I have no control over people that keep moving around, and hence you may notice some ghosting. But keep your eyes on the cars and you should be okay for the most part.

Have fun.

Here are a few more pics. There appears to be a 20 pics-per-post limit.

It is going on right now from 6th Mar through the 13th. See 37th Annual Minneapolis & St Paul Auto Show.

Nope, no italian exotics. There is a list of participating brands at the above url.

Glad that you're all enjoying the pics.
