It might not get the billing of the Detroit or LA shows, but the NY Auto Show is always host to numerous important world premieres. This year's event will showcase the all-new Viper, launched under the newly-founded SRT brand. Also look for the reveal of the all-new Nissan Pathfinder, Hyundai Santa Fe, Acura RL and Mercedes SL63 AMG.

See our preview below with live coverage starting April 4th.

Having attended the NY show most years since the early '60's, this line surprised me. A little wiki work shows the NY show is the both the oldest, and has the greatest attendance. Prior to the Detroit show reinvigorating itself in the late '80's and becoming "International," NY was the place to see "foreign" cars like Lotus (in 1964, you could buy a brand-new Aston convertible for $15k, and a brand new RR for $19k - which of course was a huge sum in those days). No doubt the Detroit show, as well as the LA show, are certainly now top-notch, premier events, but not sure they've displaced NY?
