The 111th edition of North America's first and largest publicly attended auto show proved another smash-hit. Filled with every type of vehicle imaginable including 61 of which were unveiled for the first time in the world or U.S., the 2011 New York International Automobile Show (NYIAS) was one of the most exciting shows ever, placing New York as the world's car capital during the event's 10-day run. Also, unprecedented vehicle launches and media coverage helped push attendance to approximately 1.5% above last year's attendance figure, once again topping the one million visitors mark. The 2011 exhibition featured nearly 1,000 cars and trucks, covering every type of vehicle segment available including the newest lineup of clean diesels, electric and hybrid vehicles, hydrogen cars, muscle cars, CUVs, sports sedans, mini cars, light trucks, exotic cars and more. As usual, it was the performance rides that caught our eye...
