HOTTEST NEW CARS & TRUCKS DRIVE INTO MUSIC CITY
FOR THE NASHVILLE INTERNATIONAL AUTO SHOW
Test Drives, Exotics, Pre-Production Models, Live Music and More!
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (October 26, 2011) The Nashville International Auto Show, held Thanksgiving weekend, Friday,
November 25 through Sunday, November 27 at the Nashville Convention Center, is the place for showgoers to fuel their
automotive passion. Designed as a destination to research, compare and try more than 250 new models on for size, the auto
show features everything from hybrids and the hottest new coupes and crossovers, to full-size trucks, test drives and special
giveaways and appearances.
Attendees can get a jump-start on researching their next new vehicle purchase at the Nashville International Auto Show.
Several exciting all-new or redesigned vehicles will be making their auto show debuts including the Acura TL, Buick Verano,
Chevrolet Sonic, Dodge Charger, Fiat 500, Ford Focus, Kia Optima, Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, Toyota Camry,
Volkswagen Beetle and more. Showgoers can even get a sneak peek of vehicles not yet in dealerships, including the pre-
production 2013 Ford Taurus. With so many new vehicles to survey, the auto show is the ideal place to try these on for size in
a no-pressure, non-selling environment.
An attendee favorite, Premier Exotics Automobili, LLC will display a collection of high-end exotic cars. These luxurious rides
feature sticker prices well into six figures and offer an escape from the ordinary commute. Don’t miss the chance to see these
rare, high-end exotic vehicles up-close at the auto show.
New this year, the auto show will showcase the 40+ MPG Club, featuring vehicles that offer the fuel-saving advantage and
capability of reaching 40 miles (or more) per gallon on the highway. Manufacturers planning to have 40+ mpg models on
display include Toyota, Mazda, Volkswagen, Nissan, Chevrolet, Ford and Lincoln. To find these fuel-sipping vehicles, look for
the 40+ MPG Club badges along the auto show highway carpet.
After checking out all the new vehicles inside the auto show, be sure not to miss the Scion Ride & Drive Experience outside
the main entrance. Whether in the market for performance, utility, fuel efficiency or pleasure, attendees can drive a variety of
new vehicles, including the xB and tC. Taking place on Saturday, between 12 noon and 4 p.m. and

Sunday, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., the test drives allow drivers to get a real feel for the performance and handling on the
streets surrounding the convention center. Upon completion of the test drive, participants will receive a $10 gift card to Which
Wich® Superior Sandwiches.
The alternative fuel vehicles aren’t the only thing “green” capturing attention at the auto show. Attendees will have the
chance to win $25,000 cash, sponsored by The Tennessean. Every two hours, a finalist registered at the auto show will be
randomly selected and invited to choose from one of 350 moneybags stuffed inside a 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque
– Motor Trend’s 2012 Sport/Utility of the Year®. While every finalist has at least a one in 350 chance of selecting the winning
moneybag, the chances improve over the course of the show, because once a bag is chosen it is not replaced. (No purchase
necessary. Official rules and contest eligibility will be available in the auto show office and at www.Nashville-AutoShow.com.)
