The 2012 New York Auto Show has officially vomited on its shoes, stumbled out of the bar and taken a seat on the subway between a homeless person and RuPaul impersonator (actually, it might really be RuPaul). That's right folks, the party's over, and the Big Apple has told us that we don't have to go home, but we can't stay here.

Like a wasted hipster on his hands and knees scrounging loose change off the floor, we've gathered together all of the cars and concepts that debuted at this year's show. Enjoy perusing our 2012 New York Auto Show playlist while we pop a Tums and concentrate on surviving the cab ride to LaGuardia.

Good night, New York! #dropsmicwalksoffstage

2012 New York Auto Show
15

We love Mini's sense of humor, and its April Fools' Day pranks this year were among our favorites. While we really, really wanted the Cowley camper to be real, Mini actually went ahead and built the Amphibious "Yachtsman" – and then brought it to the New York Auto Show, just as promised to in its fake April 1 press release.

52

Chevrolet has over a hundred years of heritage from which it can call upon when the right marketing angle presents itself. Like, for instance, when it launches a brand-new Impala for the 2014 model year, as it has just done at the 2012 New York Auto Show. As such, the automaker has brought a mint 1966 Chevrolet Impala SS 427 Convertible to display alongside its new family sedan.

14

If you've attended major international auto show in the U.S. this season, you've likely seen this car: Edsel Ford's 1934 Model 40 Special Speedster. We first saw it at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegancee last August, then again in January at the Detroit Auto Show. It is, frankly, a most beautiful specimen, and since we hadn't yet taken the opportunity to capture it with our own lenses, New York seemed like the perfect place to hold an impromptu shoot.

31

If there's any place a Cadillac SUV can feel at home, surely it's Manhattan. Only fitting, then, that the updated 2013 Cadillac SRX has debuted at the New York Auto Show.

50

The streets of Gotham are about to look a lot different. After being inundated with legions of bulky Ford Crown Victoria and the occasional Toyota Sienna or Prius for years, New York City's hack pool is slated to get a fresh crop of yellow ugly thanks to its "Taxi of Tomorrow" program.

8

The GMC brand celebrates its 100th birthday this year, and the 1912 New York Auto Show is where it all started. To commemorate the occasion, General Motors' utility brand has created special Heritage Edition packages for both the Sierra pickup and Yukon sport-ute, and both make their public debut here at the 2012 New York expo.

27

We know what you're thinking: You'd love to buy a new Jeep, but only if it were more... black. Fortunately, dear friend, the Chrysler division has answered your prayers with a raft of special editions called Altitude.

30

BMW has treated its high-performance X6 M to a refresh for the 2013 model year, rolling the controversial bad boy out during the New York Auto Show for its first official appearance. Unfortunately, the changes are so subtle that we required an official BMW tour guide to point them out. In lieu of such a service for each of our readers, the next paragraph will have to suffice.

20

Move over, Batmobile, and make room in the geekosphere for the latest comic book superhero ride.

17

Not every reveal at the 2012 New York Auto Show was as exciting as the SRT Viper. As evidence, we present the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. The compact crossover joins the Honda Crosstour and Toyota Venza in the "subtle change, seemingly just for change's sake" category at the show.

26

Visitors to the New York Auto Show will be able to take a closer look at the Terrafugia Transition 'Flying Car,' just days after the company's prototype made its first flight. The two-place airworthy machine is perhaps best considered a roadgoing low-wing aircraft (not a 'flying car'), as its technical specifications are anything but earthly.

58

As if last year's 800-horsepower GT500 Super Snake wasn't enough, Shelby has just taken the covers off their lastest creation, the "1000" at this year's New York Auto Show. The muscle coupe comes in two flavors – the 950 horsepower street version and the track-only 1100+ horsepower S/C – although the difference seems like a moot point when it comes to a car's capability on the Pirelli street tires. A massive Kenne Bell 3.6L supercharger is the main source of the increased engine outp

42

While it doesn't even appear as a bad pixel on most enthusiasts' radar, the Toyota Venza serves legions of mainstream consumers perfectly well. To keep the unassuming family hauler from lagging behind its advancing competition, the automaker has introduced a refreshed and tweaked 2013 Toyota Venza at the New York Auto Show.

13

Lacking the fanfare of a flashy press conference, the 2012 Lotus Evora S arrived at the New York Auto Show sporting an upgraded interior and new wheel options (Lotus is one of the few automakers still following the actual calendar when it comes to model year introductions, meaning 2012 models are just now flowing into the North American marketplace).

64

Shelby is celebrating the company's 50th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion, the performance gurus rolled out the very first Cobra ever constructed.

83

Ram is out to make both Ford and General Motors sweat with the Auburn Hills automaker's newest pickup, the 2013 1500. Debuting at the 2012 New York Auto Show, the half-ton pickup bows with less weight, an efficient new 3.6-liter V6 option and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Chrysler projects the V6 alone should help yield 20 percent better fuel economy over the old 3.7 lump, thanks in part to a start/stop system. While there are no solid EPA numbers as of yet, our estimations put the vehi

261

When we read through the press materials for the new 2013 Toyota Avalon, we had to double-check... had we downloaded the release for the wrong car? Because right here it says, "In Sport mode, throttle response is enhanced and steering effort is weighted... to offer a sportier character." And what's this about paddle shifters? This is the Avalon, the car that replaced the Mercury Grand Marquis in the hearts, minds and garages of Florida retirees.

41

Yes, Infiniti has indeed made a habit of teasing the masses with exotic and eco-friendly concepts at some of the world's largest auto shows over the past few years, notably with the Emerg-E and Essence Concepts. But, unlike those rolling showcases, the automaker claims its latest reveal, known rather cryptically as the LE Concept, will hit dealerships within the next two years in nearly unchanged form.

80

First announced last October, the reborn, all-electric Delorean has made a surprise appearance at the New York Auto Show this year. It's a surprise because not even Delorean Motor Company president Stephen Wynne knew he was going to be here until a few weeks ago, when show organizers called with an invite.

21

Arguably the biggest news of the New York Auto Show for enthusiasts is the debut of the new SRT Viper. But as the high-performance arm of Chrysler has pointed out, the street-legal Viper "isn't the only high-performance snake making a triumphant return" here at Javitz.

22

Not that we don't like the Land Rover DC100 Concept or anything, but this is the third version of the next-gen Defender that Land Rover has trotted out at an auto show in the space of seven months. (Never mind that it looks like they just repainted the Heritage Blue one from the L.A. show.) Forgive us, then, for wishing Land Rover would get on with it and announce that it's going into production.

46

A Passat used to be a Passat, and that was that. But these days, things have gotten more complicated. Like Honda does with the Accord, the Passat that Volkswagen builds and offers in the United States is an entirely different vehicle from the one it offers overseas. And while we used to have a Passat wagon at our disposal in American showrooms, that one stayed on the opposite shore when the model was split.

62

If the orange Subaru XV you see here looks familiar, it's because we've seen it before. Not only that, we've driven it. So why, then, would Subaru choose to unveil its high-riding Impreza yet again here at the 2012 New York Auto Show? It's coming to America, that's why. And the car displayed here in the Big Apple is the official U.S. model.

48

Opinions found at the Autoblog table of most auto show press rooms are usually in concert, but every once in a while, we fail to come to a consensus. This 2013 BMW X1 is one such cause of discord, you see, as some of us think it belongs only on European streets, while others insist it will find enough homes here in North America.

47

The launch of the new XV Crosstrek may be the bigger news for Subaru here at the New York Auto Show, and the BRZ coupe may still be getting the lion's share of the attention, but the Legacy and its high-riding counterpart, the Outback, have also debuted here in Manhattan with a series of updates.

29

No one may have asked Ford to drop the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 found in the Taurus SHO behind the headlights of the Explorer, but that doesn't mean we're complaining. Ford has just debuted the higher-performance crossover at the 2012 New York Auto Show, complete with its full 350 horsepower. Ford says the newly menacing softroader will be good for around 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway, and the nudge in power shouldn't do anything but help the vehicle's ability to tow up to 5,000

49

It takes a special type of individual to take a look at a twin-turbo V8 roadster with 530 horsepower like the new Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG and say, "Nope, that's not enough." And for just such an individual, Mercedes now presents the new SL65 AMG.

230

This is the 2013 Honda Crosstour Concept, along with its "more capable-looking styling" that's been revealed today at the New York Auto Show.

22

Dodge has used the New York Auto Show to show off its new Challenger Rallye Redline, which was announced at The Spring Festival, a small-scale event held in Southern California for Mopar LX fans and owners. Besides being seen by those select few, this is the coupe's first public showing.

28

Although we don't doubt it's been done, turning a Dodge Neon or Caliber into a race car would be a bit of a stretch. The Dart, however, is another beast entirely. So people stood up and noticed when Dodge announced it was fielding a competition version of its Alfa Romeo-based compact sedan – with no less prominent a performer than Travis Pastrana behind the wheel – in the Global RallyCross Championship.

116

You might think that Hyundai has pulled a fast one at today's New York Auto Show by unveiling two different of its 2013 Santa Fe, one a two-row Sport model and the other a three-row family-minded model simply called Santa Fe. In reality, however, we've been expecting this since we first told you about the Korean automaker's new strategy back in mid-2010.

251

There is no sugar-coating the fact that the Acura RL has been a dud since Day One. Honda's luxury brand is painfully aware of this fact, especially since next to nobody purchased the pricey sedan. Then again, the RL has suffered the indignity of being outgunned by a lower-priced model from within its own portfolio, so we can see how selling one has been an uphill climb for dealers. But Acura has an all-new luxury flagship waiting in the wings, and it's seen its first light of day as the RLX Conc

93

When the Toyota Camry gets overhauled, like it did this year, you know it's not long before its corporate sister, the Lexus ES, gets revisited as well. And Lexus has done exactly that this afternoon at the New York Auto Show, with the new model doing what the ES does best: Surprise no one.

30

Like the existing GLK but not such a fan of its incredibly boxy styling? Or like the styling just fine but just wish it had a diesel? Well we've got good news for you, friends, because Mercedes-Benz has just taken the wraps off a revised model that aims to remedy both.

526

The wait is finally over. Dodge... excuse us, SRT has officially pulled the wraps off the 2013 Viper, and it's everything we were hoping it would be. Let's discuss numbers: 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque from a front/mid-mounted 8.4-liter V10 and the best power-to-weight ratio of any Viper ever built.

146

The 2013 Lincoln MKZ has made its long-awaited debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show. In an effort to further distance the model from the very successful Ford Fusion, the MKZ now wears a more aerodynamic and distinctive shape, complete with a new interpretation of the family's split wing grille. Max Wolff, the Lincoln design director, says the grille is supposed to invoke the image of an eagle descending on its prey, though we see more splattered butterfly in the fascia. Still, the smallish, adap

72

Attendees at the New York Auto Show are getting their first hands-on look at the all-new 2014 Nissan NV200, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission's choice to replace much of its taxi fleet beginning in late 2013. "The Nissan NV 200 unveiled today will be the safest, most comfortable and most convenient taxi the City has ever had," said New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg at a pre-show event last night. "New York City cabs have always been iconic, and now they will set a new standa

15

The Chevrolet Traverse isn't the only grandiose crossover from General Motors to get the refresh treatment at the 2012 New York Auto Show. Buick also unveiled a face-lifted version of its 2013 Enclave today.

19

BMW has finally pulled the sheets back on its 2012 M6 Convertible. The convertible counterpart to the hardtop that debuted at the Geneva Motor Show bows with the same vicious turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 under the hood. Good for 560 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque and mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the convertible should be able to launch to 62 mph in around 4.1 seconds. BMW hasn't mentioned the weight difference between the hardtop and the convertible, though the automaker str

15

Everything has been thrown at the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class to make it not only the largest SUV Mercedes offers, but the equivalent of a jacked-up S-Class. It grows by an inch in length and gets fractionally wider and taller, with the extra size providing more head, shoulder and elbow room for all three rows of passengers. It is also loaded with new standard features like a "photo quality" color instrument display, self-leveling air suspension, Collision Prevention Assist and Crosswind Stabili

44

General Motors has just unveiled its facelifted 2013 Chevrolet Traverse at the New York Auto Show today. The big crossover has abandoned the company's corporate grille in favor of a new design that's expected to eventually make its way to the rest of the Chevrolet utility vehicle stable. With three chrome-finish bars across the upper grille inlet, more expressive headlamp arrays and a new foglight design, the 2013 Traverse looks a bit more conservative and polished than it did before, at least f

96

Harmless as it may seem, the new-for-2013 Nissan Altima actually packs quite a punch. Rated at an estimated 38 miles per gallon, it boasts the best four-cylinder fuel economy of any midsize sedan, and that's without the use of any electric motors, turbochargers or even direct injection. Impressive stuff, and considering that the sleek new Altima starts at a cool $21,500 (not including $760 for destination), it should prove to be a worthy opponent for rivals like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord

231

General Motors has officially unveiled the 2014 Chevrolet Impala at this year's New York Auto Show. Riding on the same bones as the 2013 Malibu, the next-generation Impala boasts a considerably more attractive exterior with plenty of personality. Borrowing the best elements of design from the GM stable, we see more than a little Camaro and Lacrosse in the sedan's front fascia and stylized hips. Buyers can look forward to either standard 18-inch wheels or a slew of larger options, including massi

11

North Americans are going to get their first taste of an oil-burning Porsche this September when the German automaker releases its 2013 Cayenne Diesel. Europeans have been enjoying the Cayenne Diesel since 2009 – it is one of the most popular engine choices for the SUV on the other side of the Pond – but its tailpipe emissions have kept it out of our grasp, until now.

      I love how AB after every show puts up these re-cap posts. It lets me praise and ridicule the entire show in one convenient place. So here we go: Chrysler/Fiat, Altitude Jeeps, I love murdered out cars but it's getting old and not every vehicle in the world should get the treatment. Good to see the (sub)brand improving quality but a ways to go yet. Ram 1500. it's their new pick-up, ok, not my interest. Challenger Rallye Redline, ah it looks good and enjoy it for what it is. Dodge Dart RallyCross, lots of show, hope it goes. "THE BIG ONE" VIPER, I thought they should have stepped outside what was expected and start totally fresh. Upon reflection I think they did the right thing. It has a past, a good one and you shouldn't throw that away. It looks great and I'm warming to it more and more. Still not my choice but I'm glad it's back and getting into the fight. Extremely happy to see it back in ALMS. BMW, X6 M, weird, wacky and totally unnecessary model, I love it. X1, unlike the X6, I hate this thing and I'm not sure why, kinda ugly, in a bad way. M6 Conti, much improved over last model but I just never liked this car and this doesn't change that.Stuffy, pretentious, snobby and other words are evoked by this car. Honda/Acura, Crosstour 'turd' concept, really, do I have to say anything? RLX concept. I'm sure it is an improvement over the last model, I hope. Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, I think it looks good and is "right sized" but needs major interior improvements. It's a good company and needs to find it's way back to solid footing again, not sure it will. Ford, Shelby 1000, it's hard to hate on this but I do. Even given the means to buy one I wouldn't and not because I'm not a Mustang fan. I hope they only make 1000 and sell them at outrageous prices. Explorer Sport, always laugh at this truck because the only exploring it does is down to the local mall and back. Now you can do it quicker. Lincoln MKZ, brand needs to further itself apart but this is ok. I never minded the looks, though it was just a bit dis-proportionate. It's better now and I like it. Toyota, Venza, interesting car and would like to see more in this segment. Avalon, better but still parked outside during special early seniors dinner. Nissan/Infinity, Infinity LE concept, this is their Lexus HS250. That didn't work out but I think this might, a more expensive Leaf anyone? NV200 Taxi, good luck, may be the toughest 'auto project' in America. Altima, always sold well and I think this will do even better. Should take market from Accord, Camry and the segment in whole. Land Rover, DC100, another variant, just build it already. LR4 special, as the Boxter was the poor mans Porsche, so this goes. VW Group, VW Passat Alltrack, I like it. If people buy Venzas why wouldn't they buy this? Porsche Cayenne Diesel, I hope Americans take to diesel more. End part 1...

      I too thought that the new Honda Accord (sedan or coupe, since the coupe 'concept' was shown at Geneva, I believe?) was supposed to debut at New York. Maybe Honda quietly pulled it at the last minute. Not meaning to stir up anything here, but with the recent negative perception that Honda has garnered with the lukewarm Civic restyle, plus the debut of major competitors like the Nissan Altima, (and to an extent) Toyota Avalon and Chevy Impala, they may have chosen to wait.

      Part 2 Mercedes, SL65 AMG, don't like the looks of it and it's just an old mans car. Impressive and I don't hate it, but I don't like it. GLK, another one of the "right sized" vehicles for America. I've always liked this and now has diesel option, excellent. GL, big brother to GLK and has had diesel option and that's the way to go if you want this one. Good vehicle for huge people with huge needs. Subaru, XV Crosstrek, a funkier, better looking Outback, Great! Should bring younger buyers. Legacy, starting to get big, encroaching upon Tribeca almost. Still a great vehicle. GM, Impala, much improved but seems lacking in techno "wow" factor. Maybe it's just perception and legacy but this just seems like another big Chevy. I hope there is more to the story. I'm looking forward to the next gen already and hope to see some French PSA influence. OOOOOO sacrilege, American car with French Influence: btw, look up the origins of the name Chevrolet. Traverse, can't say I care at all. Buick Enclave, same as above. Individuals and Red Headed Step Children Terrafugia Transition Flying Car, This may happen, long after I'm dead and made worm food but I love these guys for perusing a dream. Lotus Evora S, great car, bad company and an idiot running it. Changes on the horizon. Delorean Electric, retro style with modern drive train, cool. Hope it works. Hyundai Santa Fe, loss some weight, that's great. I'm a poet. Fisker Atlantic, this is a hard one. The whole story surrounding the company is maybe tainting my view. This is a company raising close to if not over 1 billion dollars and can't produce a concept car without major drama and difficulty. The problem as I see it, new drive line technology implemented into old chassis tech run by "old ways" men. Fisker and Tesla shouldn't be run by old ex GM, Ford or Chrysler people. It should be a completely fresh and new take on the transportation business. This company if it makes it, will not look like it does today in 5 to 10 years, it can't. As for the car, I don't know, it's just a smaller Karma. Lexus ES 300h, sorry my temporary narcolepsy set in again, always happens when talking about Toyota and Lexus. Overall, good to great show, hope you enjoy my comments even if you disagree.
