Chicago Auto Show: Want get in before anyone else?

Chicago Auto Show: Want get in before anyone else?

The Chicago Auto Show opens to the public on Saturday, Feb. 9. But Nissan gave "Drive, She Said" a special invitation to pass along to readers: Get in a full day early. Check out Nissan's newest vehicles including the all-new 2014 Note, special edition GT-R and Nismo models.

In addition to getting into the show a full day in advance for free, other things you'll have to look forward to:

  • A special performance-inspired breakfast from 9 a.m. - 11 a.m.
  • A guided tour of the performance vehicles on display. Tour will take place at 9:45 a.m.
  • Fresh off his first professional race at 24 Hours of Dubai, there will be a meet & greet with Season 2 GT Academy Winner, Steve Doherty. Steve will be available for questions, photos and interviews from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
  • Get behind the virtual wheel of our Nissan performance vehicles and put your racing skills to the test in a Gran Turismo Challenge - the same gaming challenge we use to qualify our GT Academy contestants.
  • Bring home a keepsake from this year's show by printing your very own Instagram photos at our InstaPrint photo stations.

  • The only thing I could figure out is that last year they said there wouldn't be a new Versa hatchback, but apparently now it is to be the 2014 Versa Note.

    Sort of like saying last year that there wouldn't be an Escape hybrid, but instead there is the C-Max.
