Volvo displayed several classic models at its stand, including the iconic original P1800 coupe that appeared on the 1960s television show “The Saint,” which featured Roger Moore as a suave modern-day Robin Hood who steals from the criminally rich and gives to the poor. The car bore its original number plate, ST 1, for Simon Templar, the title character’s name and also the abbreviation for saint.

Lincoln unveiled its Navigator concept at the show. The gullwing doors automatically fold down to help with entry, but they won’t be on the production model when released.

Other notable introductions include a convertible version of Audi’s R8 sports car. With its huge V10 engine, it’s one of the most powerful droptops available. Hyundai introduced the new Ioniq sedan that will be available in hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and pure electric versions.

Finally, Toyota introduced what it termed the most technologically advanced hybrid on the market, the Prius Prime, which allows the driver to operate the vehicle solely on battery power and is available with every conceivable driver assistance technology including autonomous parking and blind spot detection.
