Detroit Auto Show...

The show ended last week, but I finally got to uploading the pictures to my computer...I only took like 20 pictures because I only had my camera phone--other camera is broken, so it's pretty much only the greatest things at the show.

Nissan GT-R It was gorgeous



Camaro-I think this is the third year that it's been there:


Mazda Furai



Hyundai Genesis

Corvette ZR1


Ferrari F430 runs on E85...Seems kinda pointless to me. Is it a performance car or does it sip gas?

I enjoyed it this year (as with every year), but yeah I don't recall anything too fascinating.

Also, I guess the Ferrari makes 10 more horsepower, but according to Car and Driver:
Quote:
Ferrari acknowledges that its interest in making its cars more environmentally responsible stems less from customer demand than regional legislation and, in the case of ethanol, a desire to grow the brand in markets such as Brazil and parts of Scandinavia where ethanol is the fuel of choice.

Im not sure how its done, but possible...I think the CCX non R makes around 750 horses or 800...good gains for bio fuel
