[PICS] 2011 Corvettes at the Detroit Auto Show

Article and Photos Contributed by Steve Burns

Each year in early January the auto industry descends upon snowy Detroit to kick off the annual car show season. Automakers from around the world debut new models, special editions, and future technologies. This year’s show featured roughly 40 new vehicle introductions as the auto industry continues to recover from the events of the last couple of years. Over 700,000 people will visit Detroit’s Cobo Center over the course of the 9 public show days.

The GM display this year was again located in its traditional location in the far corner of the facility. The atmosphere is more upbeat this year due to the debut of the Sonic, and launches of the all new Cruze and the much-talked-about Volt.

Tucked in amongst all the new bowties were a Velocity Yellow Grand Sport and Supersonic Blue ZR-1. The Grand Sport was decked out in the top of the line 4LT trim, Heritage Package, and Chrome wheels. There was a constant line of people waiting to take seat in Chevy’s halo vehicle throughout the show. The ZR1 was decked out in the 3ZR package and also featured the chrome wheels. Unfortunately, fans weren’t able to sit in the ZR1 as it remained locked throughout the show. Adjacent to the Vettes over in the Cadillac display was Johnny O’Connell’s new ride – the CTS-V Coupe SCCA racecar. Check out the Corvettes of NAIAS below.

If you’re ever in Detroit during the first couple weeks of January be sure to dress warm (as there’s always a cold snap or snow storm during the show) and make it a point to stop into the North American International Auto Show.
