5 head-turning cars at the New York Auto Show – CBS News

Posted: Friday, March 25, 2016

Usually the sleek, roaring sports cars get the biggest auto show crowds and most attention from photographers. But for the second year in a row at the New York International Auto Show, Lincoln has come up with a startling large concept vehicle that’s stealing the limelight.

Last year, it was a concept for the resurrected Continental — now going into production. This time, the stunner from the formerly staid Lincoln is the concept version of the redesigned Lincoln Navigator — featuring huge gull-wing doors and a folding staircase (pictured above), like a small airplane.

And while this Navigator is a star, there’s no lack of stylish ready-to-rumble sports cars at this year’s New York show. Nissan unveiled its redesigned GT-R sports car that it will produce in a racing version (and will race). On the green end of the spectrum, Toyota is out with a plug-in version of its pioneering Prius hybrid — which it calls Prius Prime. Hyundai is introducing its all-new (if oddly spelled) Ioniq, which will come in three versions: classic gas-electric hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric.
