Welcome Chevy’s Stingray back, and meet a car with a built in vacuum at the 113th New York International Auto Show

Each year Manhattan’s Jacob Javits Convention Center plays home to the International Auto Show featuring 4 floors and over 900,00 square feet of the latest innovations in automobile technology and vehicle eye candy. Revelers, marketers, and consumers are introduced to stunning new advancements in technologies for vehicles in both the affordable and luxury markets. Last year they brought the world’s first flying car to New York City. The 2013 show officially kicks off Saturday, March 30th and runs until April 7th. 

What’s in store this year? For starters, we can welcome back Chevy’s Stingray for the first time since the 70’s since it’s been moonlighting with a single name ‘Corvette’ for the last few decades. Honda has also unrolled a brilliant, perhaps genius, feature in the latest model of their Odyssey minivan which has a built-in shop vacuum. Parent’s who’ve given up their top-down convertible days will surely appreciate that one. 

Buzz for 2013’s auto show surrounds the increasing trend of luxury carmakers unrolling truly affordable vehicles. Mercedes-Benz will use the floors of the Javits Center for the world-debut of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Coupe. It’s a scaled down version of their CLS 4-door coupe which would set you back a mere $100,000. The CLA will  only cost you half the price, ringing in at around $50K, but will still provide you with the adrenaline rush made famous by Mercedes’ powerful production 4-cylinder under the hood. The original James Bond, 007 himself, has already helped generate buzz and excitement for Land Rover as he drove a Range Rover sport from Brooklyn to Midtown West Manhattan for the 2014 SUV’s official American debut. 

Whether you’re in the market for a brand new Aston Martin, or want to see what the people behind Bugatti and Lamborghini have been up to –there’s something for all ages (and for wallets of all sizes) to enjoy. There’s even an official app parents can download that’s chock full of family-friendly activities to attend. Be in the know with what cars have been “unveiled” each day by following them on Instagram (Nyautoshow), and help vote for the Top 5 buzz cars on their Facebook Page.

IT’S A BIRD…IT’S A PLANE…NO WAIT IT’S A FLYING CAR?!?!? 

That’s right, the day has come that our world more closer than ever resembles something straight out of a scene from Back to the Future or The Fifth Element. Flying cars and all. This weekend at the Jacob Javits Center, the annual New York International Auto Show will debut the world’s first commercial flying car, The Terrafugia Transition to the public.  The airborne automobile first took flight at Plattsburgh International Airport in New York for an eight-minute long stint in the clouds, and reached an altitude of 1,400 feet.  Industry bigwigs more aptly deem it a “roadable aircraft” that will best serve jetsetters traveling from one destination to another private airport where they’ll then drive it a few miles to their vacation home, say in the Hamptons 

Fitting that history will be made with this car, and at this show, as the International Auto Show became North America’s first automotive exhibition over a century ago in 1900. Each year the world renowned event attracts the likes of wealthy business professionals interested in the most up-to-date luxury vehicles, along with the most respected and innovative marketers and advertisers looking for the next best thing for consumers.  The futuristic winged-car will surely be the buzz around town this year.  The event is open to ticket holders starting Friday, April 6th and runs until Sunday, April 15th with closing ceremonies taking place at 7pm.  Be sure to visit their website for more info on tickets and special events.
