The 2012 New York International Auto Show had great variety to offer, with vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

The most hyped and awaited Transition - a flying car from a Massachusetts-based company grabbed the limelight.

The car makers showcased their latest designs with Fisker's Atlantic luxury electric car, Nissan's New York yellow taxi and an all-new 2014 Chevy Impala from General Motors. The ultra-sleek, super fast SRT Viper sports car was another highlight of the event.
