The Denver Auto Show, March 2013

[Category: AUTOMOBILES, AUTOS.]

I can dream can’t I?  It’s a guy thing.  Unless you’re a car gal.

I didn’t photograph every car and I’m not displaying every car I photographed.  These are my favorites as I fantasize about my ‘next’ car.  (We in this country are fortunate to have such problems.)  If I could even afford my fantasies I couldn’t buy a new car because then I would have one major less thing to obsess about.

The train into town to the Denver Convention Center is as cheap as gas these days.

[On my Macbook I can click on a photo to enlarge, then SCROLL DOWN and click “VIEW FULL SIZE…” to enlarge again, then click it again to enlarge even further.  In the slideshow window I click the X upper left to return to this blog post.  CLICK THE PHOTOS FOR FULL-VIEW FUN.]

.

The Buick Enclave and new Encore.  M’lady has a recent year Buick sedan which is sweeeeet.  They’ve come a long way baby.

.

The Mercedes Benz CLA 250 Concept to be released Sept. 2013.  If it looks anything like this they’ll sell a lot of them.

.

BMW SUVs.  X1, X3, X5.  (I’m an SUV kinda’ guy.  M’lady says that as long as we live in Colorado one of us should have an SUV, to which I reply ‘who would THAT be?’.  Since she has a recent year sedan, I guess that leaves me.)

.

Audi, Audi, Audi.  The mid-size Q5 SUV is very high on the fantasy short-list.

.

Maserati, Aston Martin, Ferrari.  For when you have a spare couple-a’ hundred thou’ laying around.  Yawn.

.

The Acura MDX is another short-lister.

.

This is a touchscreen COFFEE TABLE in the Acura display area.  If I can surf the ‘Net on it I want one!

The Acura RLX was one of several cars I saw displaying the next big thing, TWO dashboard screens.

.

Finally, the Nissan Murano as I recall has a very high Consumer Reports rating.  Also it is sooo much cheaper than the others!

.

It’s noteworthy that nearly all my dream cars are from Germany or Japan.  Hmm.

    Well, great photos. I have BMW 535d, biturbo, xDrive, touring, max torque (Nm/rpm) 630, 230 kW (313 hp). I love touring cars, because they have enough space for luggage.
