A preview of the LA Motor Show 1

s-classMaybachThe LA Motor Show is one that very highly anticipated from across the world this year. It will have the most significant new cars in the industry on display. We check out a few here in today’s article.


Sketches of the new Audi A9 Concept have already been released, which we reported on yesterday. It shows a car which is more a sports coupe rather than an A8 limousine. It will take a 2 maybe 3 years for the car to join the Audi production range. Its main purpose for now it seems is to showcase the new design language adopted by Audi.


We can’t wait to see the new BMW X5 M and X6 M. Both cars will be to achieve 567 BHP along with 750Nm of torque. The 0 – 62 MPH time will be 4.2 seconds, a time which rivals cars like the BMW M5! The X5 M will cost around £90,170 with the X6 M £93,070.


We don’t really see many Chryslers here in the UK. But the new 300C model will certainly be a big deal at the LA Motor Show. Not many details of the car have been released yet but the car is expected to have some major design changes.


The Jaguar F-Type will capture the attention of millions. The car has had plenty of publicity and success recently. The model showcased at the LA Motor Show will be an AWD F-Type coupe. This is certain to provide stronger competition to the Porsche 911. The 0 – 60 MPH timing of the V8 R coupe will be 3.9 seconds.


The Mazda CX-3 will be the company’s main attraction in Los Angles. The model displayed will not be a concept version, it will be the full production model. That’s how confident Mazda are of the car’s design. There hasn’t been much information released yet about the car in terms of its engine and equipment. The CX-5 SUV will also be on display at the motor show.


Mercedes will have their new Maybach S-Class on display at the LA Motor Show. It will not be sold separately like the previous Maybach models, but as an extended more luxurious version of the S-Class. It will go on sale next year.
