Most people go to auto shows to see the latest bunch of cars they’ll never be able to afford. I go for things like this:
That’s a Bugatti Veyron stripped of it’s panels, and displayed in all it’s glory.
To me, displays like this are the best part of auto shows: the exploded and animated engine, the gutted drive train, the new Mustang that’s been cut in half so that you can walk between it. Seeing into everyday objects and learning how they work has always fascinated me.
I’ve also found that auto shows are a great opportunity for photo reference. Not only may you find a gem like this, but you can also observe all the various textures on the car under ideal lighting conditions.
You can see the rest of the pictures over at Jalopnik, here.
