The inaugural Southeast Michigan Auto Show has announced vehicles from Bollinger Motors, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, and Kip Sheward Motorsports will be displayed. The show is to take place from Friday, Jan. 3-Sunday, Jan. 5 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.
Ferndale-based Bollinger Motors, which produces the only Class 3 electric trucks on the planet, will display its Bollinger B1 and B2 truck models on the show floor. They are all-electric and completely aluminum.
Lingenfelter, a performance brand based in Wixom, will display six vehicles at the show. The company offers engine building; engine and chassis tuning components and installation for vehicle owners; component product development; services to manufacturers, aftermarket, and OEMs; prototype and preparation of product development vehicles; late product life-cycle performance improvements; durability testing; and show and media event vehicles.
Kip Sheward Motorsports in Novi offers sportscars, brand benchmarks, luxury cars, exotic cars, and ultra-exotic cars, as well as late-model collector vehicles and motorcycles.
“We are excited to have these new additions to the Southeast Michigan Auto Show,” says Blair Bowman, promoter of show. “These unique groups will bring dynamic displays that represent Michigan-based automotive industry businesses.”
The Chevrolet Grand Prix presented by Lear will also bring its IndyCar display to the event.
The show will feature more than 200 vehicles from more than 35 brands. It seeks to replace, on a smaller scale, the North American International Auto Show, which was traditionally held in January at TCF Center (formerly Cobo Center) in Detroit and has been moved to June for 2020.
