Since 1907, over a century ago, with the exception of the World War II years, Detroit has hosted an auto show: the Detroit Auto Show. The vision and fortitude of the 1989 organizing committee, that made the show international rather than regional, as well as the efforts of Detroit area auto dealers who’ve since served on the organizing committee, the North American International Auto Show has continued to grow and has earned a top spot among auto shows around the world.
The 2015 Detroit Auto Show brought the year’s first glimpse at what our automotive future-near and far-holds.
Some of the most impressive and favored cars of the show were:
Ford GT 2016
The carbon-fiber-bodied, 600-horsepower Ford GT is basically engineered for high-speed chases down coastal highways, and showing the world you are superior to them because of the crown you have, called the Ford GT. Ford plans to introduce 12 new performance vehicles by 2020. Two others that debuted in Detroit include the F-150 Raptor and Shelby GT350R.
This car has a hybrid powertrain that pairs a twin-turbocharged V-6 with three electric motors, allowing computers to do all the technology things that are needed to maintain traction and thrust. Acura will begin taking orders for the limited-production hybrid super car this summer. It will reportedly have a starting price in the mid-$150,000 range.
Mercedes-Benz F 05 Concept
The self- driving car which is also known as the ‘luxury in motion’ project, made its premiere at the Detroit Auto Show, where it showcased how the future of the automobile is shifting towards becoming a private retreating space. It is a car focusing on the progression from self-propelled to the self-reliant vehicle, the luxury sedan concept is electrically driven using a system similar to the F-cell plug-in hybrid used in the 2011 ‘F 125′ research car.
