Event Highlights: 2012 New York International Auto Show

On Friday April 6, the 2012 New York International Auto Show opened to the public. Situated right smack in the middle of Manhattan, the show has a long storied history. In 1900, it was America's first automotive exhibition. For over 100 years to follow, it has remained one of the world's marquee stages for unveiling the latest in automotive innovation. Something ironic about an auto show in a city known for people not owning cars and taking public transportation instead. But that also makes it is THE ideal place to unveil the next generation New York City taxi. Other highlights this year was the unveiling of the new SRT Viper, Shelby's 1,000HP Mustang, a rare Flying Car by Terrafugia and a lot more. What's an auto show without a car that can fly? Exactly. Below are a few highlights from the show - just click the pictures to see full galleries of each car, or click here to see every car released at this year's show...
