The Classics, the Newest Models and the Hottest Rides at New York’s Auto Show

Highlights from the New York International Auto Show now underway at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan.

Nothing says “I’m a boss” like an executive limousine. This is Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller’s 1967 Lincoln Continental.

What really counts is under the hood. Here’s a look at the new Ford 1-150 engine. It’s a 3.7 liter V-6 with 302 horsepower.

Mazda’s Skyactiv Clean Diesel Prototype looks more like a spaceship than a race car, and with a top speed of 186 mph, it’s easy to understand why someone might mistake it for a flying foreign object.

This is quite possibly the most unique car on display: a 3D Printed Liquid Metal car by Ioan Florea. Underneath is the body of a 1971 Ford Torino. Good luck finding the door handle.

You’re looking at the innards of a Toyota race car.

Even NASCAR’s Matt Kenseth dropped off a ride for display.

The pony grill has graced the front of Ford Mustangs for 50 years. This 2015 version will keep the brand’s strong racing tradition alive, offering a powerful 5.0 liter V-8.

This SRT Viper is one of the most impressive cars at the show. It has 640 horses and speeds top out around 200 mph.

Not to be outdone, Nissan’s GT-R is one of the best street legal sports cars around. With a price tag starting at just under $100,000, it’s a supercar bargain.

Here’s the “Monster Mini”. Yes, the sporty little British cars are making moves off road and here’s the proof.

This Volkswagen Golf R is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It looks like a normal compact, but has 296 hp, all-wheel drive and paddle shifters. Wolf, indeed.

The Porsche 918 Spyder is one of the biggest technological innovations of the NYIAS. It’s got 887 hp, has a top speed of 214 mph, 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and is an electric hybrid. Yes, hybrid. But you pay for performance. It also costs $845,000.

An auto show wouldn’t be complete without a nice array of Bentley motorcars. From left to right: the Bentley Continental GT Speed, Mulsanne and Flying Spur.

If you have an extra $400,000 lying around, this Lamborghini Aventador is pretty sweet and you can use whatever pennies you have left over for gas. It gets 11 mpg city/18 mpg highway.

This is a Brabus Smart Car. It’s nearly completely customizable – great for any colorful personality.

This is the newest rendition of America’s most well-known Jeep. The new Jeep Cherokee features a sleek front, 271 hp and a 3.2 liter V-6 with a starting price of $23,000. Not bad.
