PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The 2024 Philadelphia Auto Show kicks into first gear when doors open at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Action News got a behind-the-scenes look at what to expect this year.
All of the vehicles will be on the first floor, instead of two floors like last year.
Attending the show will be like taking a walk through time and innovation.
From classics like the first presidential vehicle that was used to transport President William Taft in the early 1900's, to the first electric car produced by Rolls Royce.
The company also has the most expensive car at the show- black and white Rolls Royce Phantom starting at $493,000.
Another showstopper is the Aston Martin DBX707, the most powerful engine of any luxury SUV in the world.
There are dozens of classics, exotic, luxury, custom cars with specialized features and custom off roading vehicles on display.
There are also options within the budget of the everyday consumer, along with new EV models being unveiled by several brands.
The E-Track is also back with test drive options for several vehicles, including Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV, and Ford's electric truck, the F-150 Lightning.
"They're getting to experience first hand the torque and the technology and the dashboard, so there's comfortability as far as that transformation to electric vehicles," said Kevin Mazzucola, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Auto Show.
The auto show will also provide a glimpse of the future with concept vehicles such as the Buick Wildcat. The Wildcat on display is the only of its kind made so far and includes features such as aromatherapy and seats that gives you a nice back massage.
Mayor Cherelle Parker took part in her first ceremonial mayor's drive-in at the Pennsylvania Convention Center Thursday.
The Philadelphia Auto Show is January 13 - 21 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends and MLK Day and noon to 9 pm. on weekdays. Tickets range from $12-$20.
6abc is a proud sponsor of the auto show. You can tune in to our Auto Show Special that will air Saturday at 7 p.m.
