These cars put the emphasis on high horsepower and sporty looks. They include American muscle cars, exotic European and Japanese vehicles and even a Korean concept car that may preview a future production car.

The growing roll call of performance vehicles at the Motor City extravaganza includes the 2014 Lexus RC F, Nissan Sport Sedan concept and 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG.
