The first car I saw as I walked in appeared to be a customized Corvette, and to an extent, it is. You may have seen one of these cruising through Monaco in some YouTube videos recently. This is the Soleil Anadi, a new car from the upstart luxury sports car-maker, Soleil, based out of Milan, Italy. They are taking the platform and engine block of the C6 Corvette and adding some luxury and Italian styling to create their own interpretation of a sports car. The car features a 6.2 liter V8 that produces at least 650 supercharged horsepower (they are also offering a non-street legal version that will push out over 900 horsepower). Soleil will build 25 of these machines, with three coming to the United States and each will start at $295,000. Buyers will be able to fully customize their Anadis, with many high-end options not costing any additional funds.
Nobody knew what to expect from Maserati at the New York Auto Show this year. They're celebrating their 100th Anniversary this year, and they recently unveiled the Alfieri concept car, which could preview the GranTurismo's replacement. As expected, they showed up with a number of Ghiblis, which is the most easily accessible car in Maserati's current lineup. They introduced a new special edition of the GranTurismo for New York, and it's called the MC Centennial Edition. The car features minor exterior changes from the existing MC Stradale, but also an upgraded interior and commemorative badging (I think I just made up the word "badging").
