For the next few days the automotive news coming out of New York City won't be from Wall Street, but from the Jacob Javits Convention Center - where the 109th annual New York International Auto Show is being held.

Instead of horror stories about tumbling stock prices and poor sales figures, there is genuine automotive news about exciting new vehicles and forward-thinking concept cars.

It might surprise you to learn that even in a downturned economy the NY Auto Show will play host to dozens of new model unveilings, many of which we have already brought you news on - plus a select few that are being kept under wraps until the covers come off on the show room floor.

In the first category, some of the most highly-anticipated include the 518hp Mercedes-Benz E63 and 555hp BMW X5 M and X6 M, as well as the GMC Terrain, Yukon Denali Hybrid and the 2010 Subaru Legacy.

In the later category are the Nissan 370Z Roadster and 370Z NISMO edition, as well as a sporty four-door luxury coupe from Acura, dubbed the ZDX.

And don't forget the concept cars, like the Mitsubishi Outlander GT Prototype, Hyundai Nuvis and the Scion concept based on the Toyota iQ micro-car.

AutoGuide brings you live coverage from the auto show floor with all the details and photos of every unveiling starting April 8th.

I just found out about this a few minutes ago and fly to NY tomorrow, for a break over Easter and will be in the heart of Manhattan.

After visiting the Auto Show website it mentions there is a Lotus Car Club event at the Inner Roadway, but I can't find any further information.

Can anybody please enlighten me as to what this is or point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance.

PS. If Patricko is online (his wife said he spends a lot of time on here!) :wave: We met at the Ace Cafe and Goodwood when you came over to pick up your 2-11. Sorry I couldn't get you in the McLaren factory. :shrug:

I guess it's up to LEO to carry the torch this year, on April 11 & 12. We WILL have dealer presence... Park Ave Lotus in Maywood is bringing an Exige, and we will be carrying literature for Sports & Specialists Cars (aka Lotus of Princeton), who is donating food to the hungry LEO workers.

PS: Showgoers, don't forget to visit the 4th floor. There is a tribute to Paul Neuman there, along with a LEO clubmember's 72 Elan (Paul used to own one).
