2007 Los Angeles Auto Show
Saturday, November 17, 2007
Story by Jason Husman
The Los Angeles Auto Show was November 16th through the 25th this year at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The show used to be in the middle of January which conflicted with the Detroit Auto Show. The LA Auto Show is pretty much the same format year after year. There are basically four massive halls including the South Hall, West Hall, Kentia Hall and Concourse Hall.

The Concourse Hall is where you will find Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Morgan, Mosler, Rolls-Royce, Spkyer and Vector. This is definitely the most interesting hall to visit. Porsche has it's own massive, designated area in the Petree Hall. Maserati and Maybach are mixed in with the other major manufacturers.

Some of the more interesting cars at the show include the Aston Martin DBS, Lotus Elise California, BMW M3 Sedan, Ferrari 430 Scuderia, Nissan GT-R, Lamborghini Reventon, Porsche 911 GT2, Subaru WRX STi and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. There are also plenty of concepts and hybrids by many manufacturers. Other interesting cars included the Honda S2000 CR, Audi R8, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, Mini Cooper Clubman and Spyker C8 Laviolette LWB.

As an Aston Martin owner, I was invited into the Aston Martin area to enjoy the new DBS and the V-8 Vantage N400. The DBS is well known from the last James Bond movie Casino Royale. The Vantage N400 is the special edition Vantage inspired from the company's recent achievements at Le Mans and the Nurburgring 24-hour races. The N400 is also named after the 400 horsepower output, which is up 20 horsepower over the standard V-8 Vantage. The price for the new DBS is around $265,000 and there is a two year waiting list.

In the aftermarket area, Kentia hall, you will find everything from 30" wheels to insurance companies and local law enforcement. This is where I also found Noble, T-Rex, DUB, old Porsche and movie cars.
