NYC car show officially open

by David Zatz on

The New York City Auto Show is officially open, giving the largest city in the United States access to its premier new car show.

The weekend opening included opening festivities with music, celebrities, and a parade of cars. Launches (of new or updated cars) included the  Cadillac CT6, Lincoln Continental, McLaren 570S, Mercedes-Benz GLE, Chevrolet Malibu and Spark, Jaguar XF, Porsche Boxster convertible, and Nissan Maxima. Overall, there were 60 unveilings, and for the opening,  Toyota gave a new RAV4 to Afghanistan war hero Staff Sergeant Alfredo Delossantos of Fishkill, New York, who was injured in combat.

The show has both new and vintage cars, with a museum and at least one restorer showing off their goods; Alfa Romeo’s display consisted mainly of vintage cars rarely seen even in the 1970s, when Milanos were common.

Of special interest was the New York Police Department’s display of police cars and equipment, with two antique fire trucks, tucked away in the far end of the basement.

The show will be open to the public through Sunday, April 12. It is accessible via Penn Station, Port Authority, subways, and the ferry. The taxi fare from the rail and bus stations should be around $4-$6 depending on traffic; visitors are advised not to take other cars for hire without prior arrangements including set pricing.

Allpar’s coverage includes Mopars at the New York Auto Show; the competition, including releases by Chevrolet and Mitsubishi, the Ford GT and Focus RS, Nissan Titan, and other cars; the “Camp Jeep” track; and press kits.
