WEEKEND FORECAST | HOT TICKET

Coming soon to a freeway near you

January 05, 2006

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a -- car? At this year's Greater L.A. Auto Show, swooping silver lines, bullet-nosed fronts and wheels jumbo enough to take to the tarmac might prompt even the savviest of L.A.'s car culture to look twice. The Maserati Birdcage is a stealth operation speeding over the ground, and the BMW's hydrogen-powered H2R Record Car resembles a lead sled screeching down a white slope. Rev your engines.

Greater L.A. Auto Show, Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 S. Figueroa St., Los Angeles. Opens Friday. $10. (310) 444-1850.

* Hours: 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Fridays, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Ends Jan. 15.

For The Record

Auto show -- In some editions of Thursday's Calendar Weekend, a caption accompanying a Hot Ticket item about the Greater L.A. Auto Show stated that the photograph was taken at a pre-opening event. It was taken at last year's show.
