The Los Angeles Auto Show opened its doors to media last week and we have since ingested the fastest, wildest and most interesting global car manufacturer releases you’ll find there. For locals, the LA Auto Show is open to the public from November 21-30th at the Los Angeles Convention Center so make sure to check it out if free over this Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

This year the 107-year-old LA Auto show saw debuted something for every style and price range including an AWD Jaguar F-Type to an already kyboshed Lexus LF-C2 convertible. See photo gallery below.

For the 1 percent, the new 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 luxury barge, which comes stock with champagne flutes and almost 18-feet of length, impressed crowds and will start around $200,000, according to Motor Trend. If uber-expensive dropheads are more your speed than the latest 6.75L twin-turbo V8 Bentley Grand Convertible concept has you covered.

For tuners, the new VW Golf R and Mazda Miata MX-5 will be very fun compact go-kart options. High-end beasts like the Mercedes-AMG GT, Porsche 911 Carrera GTS and Audi A7 H-Tron had us desperate to find a higher paying job. Domestic speed options continue to become more attractive with models like the new Hellcat, ATS-V, and Z06.

On the extreme eco-friendly end came the Toyata Miura, a hydrogen fuel-cell sedan set to have lease rates of $499 per month for 36 months with $3,649 down. Refuel time takes 5-minutes, total range is 300 miles and you will begin to see Miuras in California dealers come fall – now to find hydrogen fuel pumps!

Finally, concepts showed us what the future holds for a number of European and Japanese manufactures. Stand out creations included the Maserati Alfieri, which is named after the eldest Maserati Brother and is a design preview of what could be two years from now. The wild Volkswagen GTi Gran Turismo was present and can be driven digitally on Sony PlayStation’s Gran Turismo 6. The Infiniti Q80 Inspiration concept showcased it’s take on autonomous driving. The rear and passenger doors swing out like barn doors exposing the entirety of the sleek and roomy interior. A twin-turbo V6 with electric motor also previews where Infiniti is headed. Mitsubishi displayed its aggressive looking XR-PHEV electric-hybrid crossover concept – we thought it resembled the size/style of the new Lexus NX and wonder if it will later receive an EVO-based powerplant. The compact Scion iM concept, designed by Five Axis, falls into the hot hatch category with its stance, flared out bumper and Gram Lights wheels. Expect to see its final production style at the New York Auto Show.

Compared to last year's show, the 2018 Eibach Ohio Meet was a frigid slosh-fest. Yet despite the weather, Honda fans still managed to link up and celebrate what makes Honda so special.
