Top 10 Cars of the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show


BMW-i8-11

Geographically speaking, the Frankfurt Motor Show is one of the biggest auto shows in the world. Aside from being a venue to wear holes through countless pairs of sweaty dress socks, it’s a place where a venerable collection of sheet metal is sure to arrive every two years.

If the 2013 show proves anything, it’s that auto manufacturers are almost unanimously in love with two things: concept cars and hybrid drivetrains. Years ago, that idea would have been more depressing than drinking cheap drip coffee in Seattle.

Thankfully, hybrid drivetrains are much more than a way to save on gas these days. They’re quickly being adapted to performance applications; sometimes with blistering results. Click through AutoGuide.com’s top 10 cars of the show to see.

2014-Chevrolet-Camaro-Convertible-03

Chevrolet’s auto show debut schedule must be getting busy because the brand chose Frankfurt to debut the convertible version of its refreshed Camaro.

The drop-top version of Chevy’s roaring muscle car wears the same thinner-looking headlights, revised rear lamps and vented hood as the refreshed car first shown in New York earlier this year. Of course, the car also gets an updated version of Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system.

As a mid-cycle refresh, there aren’t any notable mechanical changes to discuss. The car still comes with a 6.2-liter V8. Sprinting from zero to 60 mph in the convertible takes 5.4 seconds according to Chevrolet — that’s 0.2 seconds slower than the coupe.
