10 Hits and Misses from 2014 LA Auto Show
Last week marked the opening of the 2014 LA Auto Show. As with any year, there was plenty to do and plenty to see. But some cars were hot and others were, well, not so much. Here's all the hits and misses from this year's show. Hit: Shelby GT350
Reviving the long-lost GT350 name, the new Shelby packs over 500 horsepower and was built for the race track. Impressive, no?
Miss: Galpin Rocket
If it looks like a rebodied Mustang, and acts like a rebodied Mustang, it must be a rebodied Mustang. Except with 735 horsepower.
Hit: Chevrolet Chaparral
Built specifically for the new Gran Turismo 6, the Chevrolet Chaparral concept uses freakin’ lasers. It can also get to 60 mph in under 2 seconds…in the virtual world, obviously.
Miss: Mitsubishi XR-PHEV Concept
A brand on its last leg in the U.S. might have just sealed its fate. The XR-PHEV is a plug-in SUV with a new face. That new face isn’t saving Mitsubishi.
Hit: Mazda CX-3
Just when we thought the CX-5 was fun enough, along comes the smaller, nimbler CX-3. It definitely makes that small SUV segment better looking.
Miss: Volkswagen Golf R Wagon
Pretty, yes, but no one in the U.S. would actually buy this thing if given the choice. Good thing they are not even giving us the choice — the Golf R Wagon is headed to Europe only.
Hit: Jaguar F-Type Manual
Why did we have to wait so long for this?
Miss: Bentley Grand Convertible Concept
Bentley's new Grand Convertible concept is indeed grand. Useless, but grand.
Hit: Cadillac ATS-V
Cadillac finally pulled up its bootstraps and got to work on a much, much hotter ATS. It gets to 60 mph in under four seconds, it looks sharp, and it's got a turbo V6. What else to you need in the world?
Miss: Infiniti SYNAPTIQ Concept
Like the Chevy Chaparral, the Infiniti SYNAPTIQ looks great and goes fast (hypothetically). But there's one thing that makes it utterly creepy — it wants to tap into your spine. Yeah, let's leave spinal tapping out of our cars, thanks.
