The Detroit Motor Show in 140 characters

  1. Over the last few days our TG writers have been traipsing around Motor City’s auto show until they were blistered beyond belief.

    They brought you all the latest news, but before they uploaded the full details on cars (which you can read here) they pointed their shiny phones at whatever was of interest and tweeted it to the world. Some of it was hardcore, breaking news. Some just codswallop that tickled us into a smile.

    So click through to see all of our tweets/twots/twitterers/twathevers from the @BBC_TopGear account. And thanks for all your responses and retweets.

  2. The ‘Vette Stingray, freshly unwrapped in the press scrum (or ‘scrimmage’ as they say here). 6.2-litre V8. 450bhp…

  3. It’s an all-new Fiesta convertible!

  4. Detroit’s crime problem is worse than we thought…

  5. Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series: 100% more terrifying when viewed from sea level

  6. Many Americans confused by this funny-looking NASCAR on the Infiniti stand…

  7. A quick Detroit Motor Show picture quiz: which car do these belong to?

  8. Blue fabric hiding exciting things… In this case, the new Maserati Quattroporte…

  9. The BMW 4 Series Coupe concept. Expect more Beemer news later when they show us the M6 GC and updated Z4…

    The Corvette isn’t the only new sports car
    in town today. Regard the SRT Viper…

  11. How about a trio of swoopy saloon muscle? Starting with the facelifted 585bhp Merc E63 AMG…

  12. …and the 552bhp BMW M6 Gran Coupe. Big crowd around this one…

  13. …finally, Audi just pulled the covers off this: the RS7, also with 552bhp

  14. Hold onto your hats. Here’s the new, shiny 202mph Bentley GTC Speed…

  15. Take one Fisker. Gut it. Fit a 7-litre, 638bhp V8 from a Corvette. Call it the VL Destino. Then put it on sale at $180k

  16. The new Masetati Quattroporte. Now less shrouded than yesterday…

  17. Crikey… it’s the rozzers!

  18. Here it is: the latest Acura NSX concept (that’s Honda to unAmericans)… Due to go on sale within two years

  19. The Cadillac ELR coupe range-extender. It’s a Chevy Volt/Vauxhall Ampera in pretty clothes…

  20. More from #NAIAS… A pair of Pacemans, in 218bhp JCW spec

  21. Look what Lexus just wheeled onto its stand: the new IS. More pointy than a Japanese fighting fish…

  22. The refreshed BMW Z4 (or Zee For) as they say in these parts. It’ll get an entry-level 2-litre when it comes to Britain

  23. Our first look inside the NSX. It’s swoopy and simple, and likely to stay that way in the full production version…

  24. 500bhp Cayenne Turbo not rapid enough for you? Solve all your problems with this 542bhp Turbo S!

  25. VW America heats up the Passat with this 247bhp Performance Concept. Unlikely to come to Europe. Oh well…

  26. A big mustardy Nissan called the Resonance Concept. Likely to replace the lardy Murano SUV…

  27. Will future Hyundais look like this sci-fi HCD-14 concept?

  28. More Japanese conceptry - it’s the Corolla Furia, and we’re told future Toyotas may look like this. That’s “may”…

  29. Behold: the musclehatch! Shelby gets its hands on a Focus ST…

  30. Right, that’s quite enough for one show. Thank you Detroit. We’re off… to the reasonably priced Batmobile!
