The 2012 Detroit Auto Show is approaching, and the carmakers are showing their wares ahead of time. The latest to join the show is the 2013 Dodge Dart, born of Alfa Romeo Giulietta blood and molded by Dodge. Will it have what it takes to compete in the vicious C segment? Find out more at the Detroit Auto Show.

We also have the Red Gold Dream Mercedes-McLaren SLR custom machine, which will cost you just $11 million--and your sense of aesthetics. Finally, the Ferrari 458 Grand Am makes its debut ahead of its racing debut at the 2012 Daytona 24 Hours. It's gorgeous, and we're betting is quick, too.
