The Weekly Wrap: January 10-16, 2011 - From Detroit Show Floor to Geneva Teasers

The week started with news coming mainly from the Detroit Auto Show. The show did not have many surprises and we expect the upcoming Geneva Auto Show to be little more exciting, nevertheless Porsche managed to surprise everyone with a new 918 RSR race car concept, based on the 918 Spyder.

Other show highlights were an all-new Hyundai Veloster, new Prius family and an official word from Mercedes-Benz that they are taking the electric version of the SLS AMG supercar into production.

Derek drove a new Mercedes E-Class Coupe, and Pagani released another teaser video for the upcoming C9 Supercar that will make its world debut in March at the Geneva Motor Show.
