While the Detroit Auto Show will again serve up something for everyone, those shopping for luxury and ultra-luxury cars may object to waiting in line behind a gaggle of unsupervised children to get a glimpse at the latest wares from the likes of Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus or Porsche.

If you’re shopping for something even more exotic, say a Ferrari, a Maserati, a Bentley or a Rolls-Royce, chances are good that you have neither the time nor the inclination to fight the crowds at the Detroit Auto Show.

In fact, we’d bet that you’d prefer a more relaxed and intimate atmosphere. where you can mingle with your fellow one-percenters, eat gourmet food prepared by a celebrity chef and get up close and personal to cars you may be interested in acquiring.

That’s the raison d'être behind an annual event that precedes this year’s Detroit Auto Show, called The Gallery. Held at the MGM Grand Detroit, The Gallery will showcase luxury and quasi-exotic cars, while offering a “unique culinary encounter;” namely, food prepared by Chef Wolfgang Puck.

Attendees can sample his culinary delights while viewing the latest from Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Fisker, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Lexus, Maserati, Porsche and Rolls-Royce. The new SRT Viper will be on hand, as will offerings from Lingenfelter, Shelby American and Falcon Motorsports.

Those who should have tickets to the event probably already do, but if you’ve mistakenly been omitted from the guest list, a limited number of tickets (priced at $500 each) are still available. If you’re interested in attending, ticket inquiries can be directed to The Fulkerson Group at (248) 593-9740.
