Auto sales are up a bit and many brought out their best to unveil at the show. Green cars continue to be a favorite as more and more consumers are buying environmentally friendly vehicles. Ford showed off its third-generation Focus, while GM brought out a few new models, ranging in size from the new Chevrolet Aveo subcompact to the Cadillac XTS concept, which will eventually replace the DTS as its biggest sedan.
Other notable cars included: the BMW Z4 sDrive 35, Audi E Tron Concept, Bentely Series 51 Continental GTC, Toyota’s FT-CH concept and, of course, the Nelly’s 2011 DUB Edition Ford Mustang 5.0 that got insane amounts of hype. It's the first 2011 model to be customized in this way and the first ever wide-body conversion thanks to the wide-body king, Topo, which was featured here before.
DUB had massive exposure at this year’s Detroit show. We were in the Cobo Arena, which gave us more space to show off some truly awesome rides, as well as allowing more booths to display for our Detroit DUB Show Tour stop. As expected, the DUB Show is a celebrity draw which included Twista, Erik Estrada, Trick Trick, Kdeezy and B-Ball players Janas Jereb and Jason Maxiell from the Pistons.
The displays were crammed tight with auto show goers, most notably the Monster Energy booth, where guests received beverage samples; the Xbox 360 booth that featured the latest in gaming; and the Metro PCS booth that provided tons of free giveaways.
