The 2016 season of car shows is now officially underway as the 2016 Detroit Auto Show kicks off in the “Motor City” today. The first Auto Show of the year is always an exciting time as each manufacturer wants to make sure they start off the new year with a bang. With so many new exotic cars and concept vehicles on the way it can be hard to keep track of everything, but here are the cars we’re most excited to see.
BMW M2 Coupe: With 365 horsepower, the new M2 is certainly a brilliant representation of what the German engineers at BMW can accomplish. Lean and sleek looking, the M2 packs a twin-turbo engine into this rear wheel drive machine sprints out to 60 miles per hour from a standstill in just over four seconds.
Porsche 911 Turbo: When it comes to supercars, few in history have had the staying power of the legendary Porsche 911. This all wheel drive variant of the beloved supercar is one of the most exciting models ever produced and is fully capable of hitting top speeds of over 200 miles per hour.
Mercedes-Benz SLC300: Mercedes has made the decision to move away from the SLK name and replace it with the SLC model being unveiled today in Detroit. This Mercedes-Benz retains the manufacturer’s trademark luxury style but throws in a twin-turbo V6 engine that makes this luxury Benz feel more like a sporty Porsche.
Acura Precision Concept: One of the most exciting concept cars being displayed at the show today will be Acura’s “Precision” concept. We should be learning more about the sleek Precision in the days to come, but at the moment, Acura has stated it represents a vision into what consumers can expect from the manufacturer for its next-generation vehicles.
Fisker “Force 1” Supercar: Arguably the most anticipated car of the entire show will be Henrik Fisker’s new supercar known as “Force 1.” Fisker is best known as the lead designer for some of Aston Martin’s most successful vehicles, but little is known to this point about the Force 1. As of right now, early claims state that the car is being produced as a direct competitor to Ferrari’s LaFerrari supercar, which retails for well over $1 million.
We’ll have to wait and see what comes from this year’s Detroit Auto Show, but one thing is for sure and that’s 2016 shows no signs of slowing down when it comes to exciting car releases.
