Philly Auto Show Opens This Weekend

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If you’re thinking about getting new wheels, or just want to dream a bit, the Philadelphia International Auto Show is rolling into the Pennsylvania Convention Center this weekend.

Among the 700 featured cars that might make your heart race, why not have a seat in a 600 horsepower Aston Martin? Or how about a Corvette ZR1 in inferno orange?

Among the classics, a Bentley and a Bugatti from the 1920’s, and a Hudson and Cadillac from the 50’s.

There are hot production cars, pre-production vehicles, exotic, concept cars, as well as hybrids and electric vehicles.

Kevin Mazzucola is the executive director of the Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia:

“On average, about 50-percent of the attendees are going to buy a car in the next 12 months.”

There’s lots to see if you’re in the market — or just want to drool — whether your price point is $10,000 or $450,000.

    Mr. Tawa writes “Why not have a seat in a 600 HP Aston Martin?” Wrong, bud.
    No way are any of the attendees allowed to sit in a high-end car like this, even if attending the Black Tie Gala. I go every year to the Gala, and it would be a real surprise to let any of the public sit in a car like an Aston, Bentley, or Roller.

    This will also be mean good business for the China Town washy washy business. Who said money can’t buy you love?
