The 2013 Detroit Auto Show: The Stingray And Others
|   Tuesday, January 15, 2013
In terms of cars, Americans cannot be duped. They organized the first auto shows. The first time such an event was held was in Los Angeles back in 1907. Everywhere horsepower enthusiasts are keeping their eyes fixed on the salon in Detroit, a city known around the world as the center of the American automobile industry.

Today, the first day dedicated to media, more than 5.000 journalists looked for the cars exposed to the hottest car manufacturers.
As a curiosity, the Detroit salon is reserved exclusively for the automotive world. Accessories and motorbikes are not present.

Moreover, since 1976 it holds an annual charity event to raise money in order to help children with problems in Michigan; the price of a ticket is worth 300 dollars.

At the 2013 Detroit Motor Show the world premiere 42 cars will take place, of which we have seen the emergence of a legendary car.
The Corvette Stingray came in a new presentation, five decades after it made ​​headlines on the famous Route 66 from the United States.

The new model available on the market, since 2014, is the most powerful brand in history and gathered 450 horsepower under the hood. Reach 100 km per hour in just 4 seconds and consuming, says the manufacturer, only 9 liters per 100 km. The Chevrolet has completely redesigned America's favorite sports car for 2014. It's complete with lightweight carbon fiber construction, a powerful yet fuel efficient LT1 small block V8, as well as a luxurious high tech interior complete with a fully programmable digital instrument cluster. However, the big news of the night is that the Stingray nameplate is back.

Up front a pair of LED lit vertical headlamps sit on either side of the classic Corvette cross flag emblem and ahead of an all new carbon fiber hood vent that serves to extract hot air out from the engine bay and channel it over the car (as opposed to passing it underneath), increasing down force and making the C7 Stingray go around corners with the greatest of ease, while fender vents are complimented by a pair of sharp looking stingray emblems.

Out back the C7 Corvette Stingray sports a fat quad tipped exhaust as well as a set of all new, squarer, taillights that are more reminiscent of a new Camaro than the familiar round stoppers of a classic Corvette. On the inside, the 2014 C7 Stingray sports a fully customizable instrument binnacle and for the first time, optional competition sport buckets are available for those die-hard driving enthusiasts.

All the big manufacturers have displayed cars at the Detroit automobile ECO trend in recent years. Now, BMW brought three hybrid models, Mercedes responded with E 400 Hybrid and Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid presented.
From the Asian manufacturers, Hyundai showed off an electric car in structural variables; experts will decide on the impact of the South Korean brand in the U.S. automotive industry.

Japan's Toyota came with the FCV-R model, a prototype that operates entirely on hydrogen. The tank has a range of 700 km, and the car will be available for sale only in 2015.

Another car was renamed especially for the American market. The Fusion is actually the new Mondeo and will appear this year in Europe and the Buick Encore SUV is actually the Opel Mokka.
The Detroit related conclusion is simple. Americans are steadily giving up supercharged engines with displacements of 5 or 6 liters and choosing the smaller and more efficient propulsion systems.
