Ferraris take center stage at 2011 Virginia Motor Trend International Auto Show

Sizzle comes in the form of a collection of Ferrari’s complete with their snazzy looks, high speed, and high price tag.  The Ferrari’s are being shown by Ferraris on the Vine.  And, there’s the opportunity to explore the new or redesigned 2011 models of  Buick Regal, Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Volt, Dodge Durango, Ford F-150, Ford Explorer, GMC Acadia Denali, Honda CR-Z Hybrid, Honda Odyssey, Hyundai Equus, Hyundai Sonta Hybrid, Jaguar XJ, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Lexus LS, Mazda2, Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet, Scion tC, Subaru WRX, Toyota Highlander, Toyota Sienna, Volvo C70, and Volvo S60. 2012 Pre-Production models of Ford’s Focus and Mustang Boss, Buick LaCrosse eAssist and Verano, and Chevrolet’s Sonic and Camaro Convertible will be on display.

If ever-escalating gasoline prices have you looking for a vehicle with alternative fuel options, the Plug-In Volt and an assortment of Gas/Electric hybrids will be on the floor including those by Cadillac, Ford, GMC, Honda, Lexus, Mercedes, and Toyota.  Best of all, they are all in one place so you can compare without driving from dealer to dealer.

The next generation of in-car technology will be on display in select models.  Advanced technologies like accident avoidance sensors, parking assist, built-in WiFi, streaming bluetooth audio, satellite TV, and other gee-whiz features will be found in some vehicles on display at the show. These in-car technologies are expected to make driving an automobile safer and more entertaining than ever before.  Check out the 2011 Ford Explorer with inflatable rear seat belts to provide extra protection to adults and children riding in the back seat.

The auto show is open from 10 AM to 10 PM on Friday and Saturday and 10 AM to 6 PM on Sunday. Tickets are $9 for adults, with discounts available for seniors, military, and children. E-Mail coupons are available as well. So check out the wheels at the Greater Richmond Convention Center!
