2012 LA Auto Show Preview

Every year, the LA Auto Show comes around and draws some of the biggest and brightest crowds around the country. Being the last major event of the year, LA has to shock and awe the already jaded crowds. But be disappointed not, LA is a mecca for all things automotive; looking to draw in a wealthy fan base, new reveals and stunning concepts are all but the norm in the city of angels. As with previous, this year will not disappoint. With automakers from Acura to VW prepping an onslaught of North American debuts when doors open to the press November 28th, prepare to have your faces melted by an onslaught of new photo galleries. Acura ILX

While Acura’s all new ILX is nothing to shout over from the mountain tops, it is a smaller, more readily available and less bird-like looking sibling to the Honda Civic. Possibly a big ticket seller for the struggling brand? We hope so. You can also watch Acura's live reveal of their flagship 2014 RLX at the link: www.acurawebcast.com BMW X1 Powder Ride Edition

Sure, this K2 inspired X1 CUV may be the worst sort of vehicle product synergy in the flesh, but, head north of the OC and and Tahoe and you will find yourself amongst some of the freshest powder known to man. It’s like, mountain cocaine. Fiat 500 Turbo

2012 LA Auto Show Preview

One is too hot, one is too cold, but this Fiat 500 turbo may be just right for the enthusiast on a budget. With an available 195-hp and a price tag of just under $20K, Fiat hopes the 500T is that missing niche car the market was looking for. Jaguar XFR-S

Along with the F-Type, an all new XFR-S sports saloon will find itself on the showroom floor. What Jaguar says to be their fastest sedan ever, we hope it comes draped in a candy blue paint scheme and enough bells and whistles to leave us all confused and erect. Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster

Part two of two in the Mercedes-Benz in LA saga comes in the form of the sweat inducing SLS AMG Black Series. The 622-hp child-eating machine is the first Black Series edition of Mercedes’ SLS halo car. Porsche Cayman

Like the 911, the Cayman is a big ticket in the Porsche lineup, and although it’s yet to be confirmed by Porsche officials, it’s likely to debut with a few nips and tucks, 90210 style. Volvo S60 Polestar Concept

Volvo is looking to spice things up in their future lineup with the all new S60 Polestar Edition. Designed to take on the BMW M3 and Mercedes C63 AMG, at 508-hp, the Polestar performance package puts out more power and better looks. See all photos from the 2012 LA Auto Show
