facebook twitter google +1 reddit email

The public portion of the 2013 Chicago Auto Show will run Saturday, Feb. 9, through Monday, Feb. 18.

This will be the first time since 1998 that the show will open to the public on a Saturday. Show organizers decided to shift the dates for 2013 to take advantage of the Presidents Day holiday.

The Chicago Auto Show's black-tie benevolent event, First Look for Charity, will shift from Thursday to Friday, Feb. 8 (at 7-11 p.m.). "It's a move our charities have asked for and it will, no doubt, increase attendance at one of Chicago's most popular charity events," said 2013 Chicago Auto Show Co-Chairman Kurt Schiele in a statement.

Also, Kurt Schiele of Elmhurst BMW, Jaguar and Toyota-Scion, was recently selected as the 2012-2013 Chicago Automobile Trade Association chairman and the 2013 Chicago Auto Show co-chairman. Schiele will lead a board of 15 dealers and succeeds Michael Ettleson, who becomes chairman of the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.

In addition, the show has revamped its website ( ), with new daily image galleries, a comprehensive listing of vehicles on display and integrated social-media content from the Chicago Auto Show's official blog, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels.

—Perfection: Men's Journal recently listed what the staff says are 65 perfect items, in terms of style and design. Several vehicles made the roundup, including the Acura NSX, which the manufacturer says is three years away. The original went out of production in 2005, but the new version, according to the publication, "aims to upend the supercar world again by offering performance-based hybrid technology at a price that should undercut Porsche's similarly teched-out 918 Spyder."

—CNET gain: CNET recently issued its 2012 Car Tech Awards. The 2012 Tesla Model S was named car of the year for showing "superb technology throughout while also challenging our conceptions of how a car should work." Among the other honors were most popular (2012 Chevrolet Volt), most worthy of its hype (2012 Scion FR-S), best concept car (Acura NSX) and most OMG!! car (2012 Bentley Mulsanne).
