The Silicon Valley Auto Show begins today

The largest auto show in the South Bay begins today at the San Jose Convention Center in Downtown San Jose. In addition to the hundreds of new vehicles on display from popular manufacturers, there will be several concept and exotic cars on display such as the McLaren 570S and 650S. It is still missing my favorite car company, Tesla, but that is expected given their sales model.

Event hours are 10am-10pm Thursday to Friday and 10am-6pm on Sunday. Tickets are $11 for adults and $8 for children, students, seniors, and military. Children under 6 are free. You can purchase tickets over here.

SJ Autoshow 2012

It’s been a while since I’ve gone to the SJ Autoshow & so when a mate of mine phoned up it sounded like a good idea (Plus, I had been watching a lot of Top Gear).

There were a lot of cars, people & kids.  Even a giant 8ft DJ robot.

Most of the cars were pretty normal production cars, not has many concept or exotic cars.  But it was nice getting to see some cars up close.  Especially the Fiat 500 Cabrio, I chatted with the Fiat girl (technically Dodge) for a bit about it too.  I had always wanted to checkout the Fiat.  The convertible top is great fun.  The Mini Countryman is cool as well.

Saw a Coda, which I had never even heard of before.

Then we dropped by the exotic cars & I came upon a Fisker & a McLaren, both fantastic looking cars.  Unfortunately, they wouldn’t even let us near these cars since even a fingerprint would cause the car to depreciate by $1K.

We swung by Lexus as well to look for the IS F & the LFA.  The IS F was nice, but they didn’t have the LFA so we dropped by to chat with the Lexus girl.  Will he buy one?

Nope, he’s gone with the Dodge RAM.  And on that bombshell, we’ll see you guys next time.  You can see the other photos on the true2lifepix FB site.
