North American International Auto Show Preview

NAIASWelcome to our preview of NAIAS 2015. Read on to find out more about one of the biggest motor shows in the world today.

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) kicks off this Saturday with the luxury automotive event known as The Gallery.

Essentially, this is a high value event that, for the last eight years, has preceded the main NAIAS with a dinner, VIPs and the most expensive cars in the world on show. It’s like the red carpet leading up to the main show.

NAIAS proper starts with a press preview next Monday/Tueday (12/13th Jan), followed by an industry preview on the 14th and 15th. Finally, the show opens its doors to the public on Saturday 17th January before the whole vent comes to a close on the 25th.

There’s a plethora of car manufacturers exhibiting their latest models, concept cars, automotive technology and much, much more. In short, NAIAS is one of the biggest and most highly regarded car shows in the world.

We’ll be picking and choosing the best bits from the show to bring you over the next couple of weeks, focusing on the stuff that’s relevant to you as an existing or potential customer of Blue Chilli Cars.

That’s cars you may wish to lease, either on a personal or business contract hire basis.

Of course, we’ll also be looking at the concept cars, the beautiful cars, the supercars – after all, we all love cars!
