A Look At the New York International Auto Show 2015

 

New York City. The Jacob Javits Convention Center. April 01, 2015. It was here that that the world’s premier automotive companies converged for North America’s largest auto convention, the New York International Auto Show 2015. It’s doors opened to the press on April 1st, the public on April 3rd, and had its closing day on April 12th, marking an extremely eventful and successful convention. A litany of automobiles made their World and North American debuts, with offerings from leading companies such as Jaguar, Chevrolet, Mercedes-Benz and many, many more.

 

The latest trends for both today and tomorrow were unveiled by the best minds the industry has to offer, with more than 1,000 cars on display, running the gamut from future hybrids to top of the line roadsters. It seems the words of the event were “Sedan” with many companies debuting new sedans, and the always at the forefront “tech” with manufacturers putting their foot forward with new technology.

 

Mercedes-Benz took the award for Car of the Year with its C-Class sedan, taking top honors from tough competition such as the Volkswagen Passat and the ever popular Ford Mustang. Mercedes also took awards for: Performance Car of the Year with the AMG GT, Luxury Car of the Year with the S-Class Coup, Green Car of the Year with the BMW i8, and Car Design of the Year with the Citroën C4 Cactus. Certainly a great year for the German manufacturer.

 

Appearances were made by celebrities such as: Miss USA Nia Sanchez, Jeremy Gayner from The Voice, and Tony Sirico who is better known as “Paulie Walnuts” in HBO’s crime tour de force The Sopranos.

  The most heartwarming act on display took place when Toyota donated at 2015 RAV4 Limited to Army Staff Sergeant Alfredo Delossantos, an injured veteran. The car was specifically modified by the Bussani Mobility Team to fit the needs of Delossantos, who is an above-the-knee amputee.

  All in all, it was a very fun show. It is always a treat to see what the future holds, especially in a market so forward thinking as the automotive industry. All that’s left now is to show off some of the more interesting cars and look forward to what next year’s show has in store!

5 Cars, 5 Outfits

The team here at FashionMR love vintage cars. Whether it’s European, Japanese or American, if it’s in stick and has a mean “vroom,” we’re hooked; not to mention the fact that cars of a certain vintage have more love and soul. We also believe that a nice outfit should be complimented by an equally nice car. It’s no secret that a beautiful vintage car is like one expensive, steel and rubber fashion accessory. A shiny ride is that missing piece in any outfit that will help facilitate the turning of heads as you cruise or burn rubber down the street; a vintage car even more. So, lets play a little game and match five outfits we love with five classic cars we lust after.

2014 NYC Auto Show – The New and Hot Cars!

At the 2014 NY INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW we get to experience the thrills of the road and the cars that will occupy them. All models are on display, for every budget. And future cars that will roam the roads soon to come. While every company showed off their top of the line models that most people could not afford, all the major brands had their entire model lines on display. Infiniti showed off their new Q70L, a new upgraded model of their flagship Q line of cars that competes with the other luxury high end auto makers. BMW features its new X5 e-Drive concept SUV. Now giving the ability to plug it in to charge instead of paying for gas. Also showing off their brand new X4 crossover, which is a smaller version of their X6 model. Mercedes-Benz of course blows away the competition with the premier of their S63 AMG Coupe. Because why limit luxury to always having four doors, when you can have everything with just two? Another first is Mercedes-Benz’s Apple “CarPlay” debuting with their upcoming 2015 C-Class models. According to the press release by Mercedes, “Now the company has announced the official completion and release of the iPhone-based solution under the name “CarPlay” which gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use maps, listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch. Fret not, not only Mercedes Benz has advance to this level of technology and collaboration with Apple, Volvo Cars among few others too are advancing their future concept series with this must experience smart technology.

You can walk around, sit inside and get to experience first-hand what it would feel like to own, even if it is for a couple of moments. Just don’t take them for a test drive, or you will get a one way ride to a NYC jail cell. While seeing the latest models is always interesting to say the least, the most unique experience is seeing the exotic cars and the future concept that will be available soon. There are plenty of those from companies like Dodge with their new SRT Viper to the Bentley’s , Bugatti’s, koenigsegg’s, and the Rolls Royce’s.  It’s like being around automotive royalty. You can be so close with proximity and yet be so far financially at the same time. But the best part about the 2014 NY Auto Show is that there is always something for everyone. For the new car shopper that is looking to see next years and future models for when their current lease is up. For the mogul who is looking for the new hottest and best car on the market, and for the kid who just wants to see awesome cars that they see on TV and at the movies. It’s an experience for all, the buyer, the child and your chance to bond with both family and machine.  While we were privileged to have previewed  as VIPs, you too can catch a glimpse of the New York International Auto Show showing from April 18th-27th, 2014.  Certainly, you will be inspired and perhaps be perplexed and anxious [ all at the same time] as to which would be your next ride.
