start from thebeginning

First staged in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America and has been held more times than any other auto exposition on the continent. This year marks the 108th edition of the Chicago Auto Show.

    Buick's Riviera concept coupe seen at the '08 Chicago show, was the first new Riviera to appear in Chicago since 1999. Painted “Shell Blue,” the tightly stretched carbon fiber body features a trihedral waterfall grille, gull-wing doors, Formula One styled side mirrors and top-mounted chrome portholes. The prototype Riviera sits on 21-inch, 10-spoke forged aluminum wheels with low-profile tires, and the powertrain is engineered to accommodate a hybrid propulsion system. Upholster in Royal blue Alcantara suede-like covering and sandy white leather, the 2+2 place cockpit is accented in subtle icy green ambient interior lighting.
