Day Two of Press Preview of the LA Auto Show was hectic.  There were lots of cool new cars, but some were missing. There wasn’t a Maserati, Ferrari or Lamborghini in sight even though there were reports about a new Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder introduction.  No show for Bentley either. We should have seen the new Bentley Continental GT. Maybe it will be there later in the week.

I also missed the introduction of the Hyundai Equus. Hyundai didn’t even have a Genesis on the floor. I’m sure those will all show up for the regular show.

Mitsubishi was also disappointing. I wanted to check out the Lancer Sportsback, but no luck. There were a couple dull SUVs on the platform, nothing else. There will be more there for the regular show. The big debut for Mitsu was the i MiEV. Yawn.

Below are more auto pictures from the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show:

The 2011 Audi R8 Spyder is sexy from all angles. This one has the Lamborghini V10.

The R8's interior is beautifully-crafted and driver-oriented. Very nice.

I really liked the new 2011 BMW 740i (short wheelbase). The cockpit simply fit my body better than the excellent one in the Mercedes S Class. But the 2011 Audi A8 looked better than all of them.

The 2011 BMW 740i has the 3.0 liter in-line, 6-cylinder turbo engine from the 535i and 335i. Why it's badged 740, I don't know.

The seats in the BMW 740i are superb.
