Gear Up for the 2018 Connecticut Auto Show at Mohegan Sun

So much will be new at the 2018 Connecticut International Auto Show – a new venue, new dates, new hours and plenty of new cars and automotive technology! For three days only – Friday, November 9th through Sunday, November 11th – the 2018 Connecticut International Auto Show will transform the Mohegan Sun Expo Center into the state’s “largest new car showroom.” Traditionally the Connecticut International Auto Show is the Northeast’s first auto show of the season, but in 2018 it will also will be the first consumer show to be held at the state’s newest premier event facility. Attendees can compare features, options and stylings of the 2019 models from over two dozen car lines – from A to V (Acura to Volvo). The latest innovations in safety and performance will be on display. Go green and go under the hoods of hybrids, electric vehicles, hybrid EVs and plug-in hybrid EVs. Climb in crossovers, convertibles, coupes and compacts to enjoy the comfort of dozens of the most modern automobile interiors. For car enthusiasts, Supercar Showcase and Classic Volkswagen Showcase are absolute Must-See features. Spend a few moments in rarefied air with international superstar supercars collectively worth over $20,000,000 including a McLaren 570s Spider, a McLaren 720s and the newly redesigned Aston Martin Vantage, Bentley Continental GT and Ferrari Portofino. Then marvel at two vintage Volkswagens – a 1955 Ultra Maroon Beetle and a 1958 Karman Ghia – on display in the Volkswagen exhibit. Ride & Drive returns as Toyota will have several of its hottest new offerings available for test drives around the resort. Product Specialists are on-hand to answer questions and to provide a personalized experience beyond the typical car showroom in a friendly, no-pressure environment. Hey now! “Ronnie the Limo Driver” Mund from The Howard Stern Show will be making a rare public appearance on Saturday from 1:00pm-3:00pm. Ronnie will be available for his fans to take photographs, to ask questions and to get their own autographed Flat Ronnie and a copy of his poem “Winter.” Enter for a chance to win a year’s worth of Citgo Tri-CLEAN™ gasoline compliments of Citgo, proud supporting sponsor of the Connecticut Auto Show.
