Last year, Chris Angelini and I decided to spice up our trip to CES a little, making it more exciting. Instead of Chris driving to Vegas by himself and me hopping on a direct flight to Vegas, I flew into Los Angeles to pick up a press car and then drove to Bakersfield. Chris hopped in and we made our way to Sin City together. I wrote about our vehicle of choice in 2013 Nissan GT-R Black Edition: The Gran Turismo Car.
We wanted something more comfortable and luxurious this year. It's a pretty long drive, after all. Style and comfort were necessities. So, we gave our friends at Bentley a call to see if we could borrow a Continental GT V8 for the week-long excursion. Along the way, I even picked up our new editor-in-chief, Fritz Nelson.
Armed with 500 hp, double-pane windows, and all-wheel drive, we set off to Vegas. It was a great way to start a show that featured more automotive technology than years past. Naturally, I spent a lot of time in the Las Vegas Convention Center's North Hall with companies like QNX, Qualcomm, and Nvidia. Join us as we explore the latest automotive technologies that caught our attention during CES 2014.
