Cars Meet Art

Ride & Drive Events
One of the most exhilarating experiences at the Auto Show is to put the key in the ignition, naturally. You’ll get the opportunity to learn about and test drive a number of the latest vehicles on offer from the manufacturers. Don’t just be a spectator, take the wheel.
Depending on the vehicle, drivers must be at least 18 or 21 years old, and visitors must present a valid driver’s license. For a list of auto manufacturers offering Ride & Drive events on Convention Center Drive.
Take the steepest climb found on Miami Beach! At Camp Jeep, ride the biggest inclines you’ll find outside of a parking garage. You’ll take a rough and tumble tour that shows you what a Jeep is really capable of doing. It’s a jungle trek right on the grounds of the Auto Show.
Demonstrating legendary 4×4 capabilities of Jeepvehicles, trained instructors will drive participants over a variety of surfaces such as steep grades, rocky trails and log crossings. Product specialists will chauffeur participants in the newest Jeep models. Camp Jeep will be open during regular show hours during the 10-day show.
Million Dollar Alley
If it’s South Beach, it’s all about attention, and nothing on the beach grabs more attention than the display at Million Dollar Alley. It’s a collection that would make even Bond blush. From Ferrari to Lamborghini and beyond, this is the most expensive address at the Miami International Auto Show. Money talks, but Miami money prefers to sit behind the wheel.
There’s nothing quite like a classic to remind you of the way things were. Memory Lane lets you take a drive to yesteryear fueled by nostalgia. Memory Lane is sponsored by the Antique Automobile Club of America’s South Florida Region. Memory Lane offers one of the largest, local antique automobile selections.
Topless in Miami
Everyone knows Miami is the best place to be if you want to take off the top. From sports cars to yachts, there’s a lot to look at. It’s completely understandable if you do a double take at all these fresh new models on display. Remember, at the Auto Show, just the cars will be topless, but it’s a tempting display all the same.
Returning from last year’s much talked about debut, and once again presented in partnership with the Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA), this unique showcase allows guests to fully experience a convertible car in a picturesque Miami environment, while never leaving the showroom floor.
Cuba means classics. The Auto Show will exhibit one of the most impressive local antique automobile collections at Havana Classics. You’ll be transported to the heyday of máquinas driving the backstreets of Cuba. Presented in part by Telemundo 51, Havana Classics is a trip to Cuba’s 1950s era of style.
