The 12 Biggest Head-Turners At The Detroit Auto Show 2014

01.15.14 4 years ago 12 Comments

Every year the Detroit Auto Show lures in manufacturing companies, engineers, and car enthusiasts alike to the armpit of the America (sorry LC and Beware). And usually every year, you see the same cars that are already on the road with some minor upgrades, along with some crazy, one-of-a-king concept vehicles that will never see the light of day. We love it, though.

Once in a while, there comes a year where that car we see all the time makes a splash, and it leaves the auto world buzzing, and waiting to get behind the wheel of that new whip. This year there were a few, some exotics and some are made right here in the US of A. Here are the cars that caught our eyes at the Detroit Auto Show 2014.
