Luxury vehicles and powerful sports cars stole the spotlight on the second day of the Detroit auto show Tuesday.
Detroit Auto Show
The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) is an annual auto show held in Detroit, Michigan at Cobo Center, usually in January. It is among the largest auto shows in North America. The first auto show was held in Detroit in 1907 at Beller's Beer Garden at Riverside Park and since then annually except 1943-1952. It was renamed the North American International Auto Show in 1989. Since 1965, it has been held at Cobo Center where it occupies nearly 1 million square feet (93,000 m²) of floor space. The show is particularly important because the Metro Detroit area is the location of the headquarters of the Big Three American automakers, Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors. The show begins with press preview days, industry preview days and a charity preview event. The charity preview raises money for local children's charities. It is estimated that the show generates a revenue of over $500 million to the local economy.
