Last week, Haute Living’s east coast auto director
Amy Kalaczynski caught a glimpse of some of the hottest new cars to hit the market at the 2014 New York Auto Show. See below for some of the showcase’s top highlights such as the priciest ride displayed, and a plug-in hybrid that allows drivers to think green while burning pavement. Bugatti Veryon The most expensive car at the show, the Bugatti Veyron accelerates from zero to 60 mph in less than three seconds. Fewer than 40 of the cars are released every year, and go for a cool $2.5 million a piece. Koenigsegg Agera R A 1,200 horsepower sports car, the Koenigsegg Agera R is one of the fastest cars on the planet with a top speed of approximately 250 mph. Only about a dozen Agera R’s are manufactured per year, each boasting a price tag of $1.6 million. Porsche 918 Spyder A plug-in hybrid, the Porsche 918 Spyder can run 18 miles on pure electricity. It received a 67 mpg government fuel economy rating, equivalent to 22 mpg in gas mode. Maserati GranTurismo Centennial Edition Created in honor of Maserati’s 100th anniversary, the Maserati GranTurismo Centennial Edition is available in coupe and convertible form. Along with the ability to reach 185 mph, it comes equipped with dual cast Brembo brakes and sport-tuned MC suspension. Maserati GranTurismo Centennial Edition Italian automaker Alfa Romeo returns to the US market after a nearly 20-year absence. A limited quantity of the elegant, rounded 4C sports car will go on sale this June, with the company expecting to sell around 800 to 1,200 of the striking wheels this year in the U.S. alone. The two-door, rear-wheel-drive 4C will start at $54,000, though 500 limited edition models will begin at $70,000. The coupe boasts a 1.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 240 horsepower and a six-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission, and gets an estimated 28 mpg in combined city and highway driving.
