CHICAGO — At this week's 2011 Chicago Auto Show, Shelby American pulled the wraps off the 2012 Shelby GT350, which is being offered in a new convertible version for the first time since 1970. Total production of the 2012 GT350 will be limited to 350 units.

Add $29,995 for the base 2012 Mustang GT coupe or $34,995 for the convertible.

Last year's Chicago Auto Show was a success. And now for this year it would be more exciting because there are 27 new production vehicles which were unveiled at the event. Though typically regarded as more of a consumer-driven show than and industry showcase, the Chicago Auto Show continues to attract larger crowds than any other such event in the nation. It is the largest and the longest running auto show, am I right? The world's car manufacturers have taken notice and plan to introduce many new models at the show.
