BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — From concepts to classics, over 500 cars will be featured at this year's New England International Auto Show, which opens Thursday evening and runs through Monday.
Chris Russell of the Paragon Group, which put the show together, told WBZ NewsRadio's Chris Fama this year's show has even more to see than usual.
"Boston really benefited from Detroit moving their show to June," Russell said. "We have all the concepts, we have the hottest vehicles."
Those include Aston Martin's first-ever SUV, the DBX; the Mustang Mach E, an all-new electric muscle car; and one so secretive from McLaren that it's still covered by a black cloak.
"This year we have a lot of American muscle," Russell said. "Brand-new 2020 Stingray, the C8 that everyone's looking at ... as well as the Mirai, it's got hydrogen fuel cell technology."
There's a lot more to see than just rubber and steel.
"We have a racing lounge this year that's all new, where kids can play remote-control racing, even the big kids," Russell said. "We have Xbox simulators. But I think the feature that everyone seems to be talking about this year is the puppy park, where people will be adopting pets here at the auto show throughout the weekend."
