The 108th Chicago Auto Show opened to the public at McCormick Place Saturday at 9 a.m.

The Chicago Auto Show is the largest in North America, with over one million square feet of cars to view. On display are everything from brand new model year cars, prototypes never seen before by the public and dream cars.

The show features indoor test tracks and outdoor ride and drive opportunities to allow attendees to try some of the vehicles they may want to buy. Many of the vehicles feature significant advances in technology.

Some people got a sneak preview of the show Friday night, and two people drove away in brand new cars after winning in the First Look for Charity event.
