1994 New York International Auto Show

1994 New York International Auto Show

Welcome back for the 1994 New York International Auto Show! Officially open July 3rd to July 11th.

Press days run from to July 3rd to July 7th. You must reveal your cars on or before these press days.

Automotive press is welcome to review the show and participating company entries. Teasers, Pre-show reveals, engine reveals, and modified cars are all encouraged.

This show is the perfect venue to release your 1994 concepts and new models of any nationality. The next show likely will not take place in the 90’s, so take advantage of this venue for your new 90’s creations.


This latest motor show takes place in 1994, but since it’s held later in the year than Geneva, surely 1995 model year cars will be eligible for exhibition as well, despite being introduced here in 1994?

Anyway, the Hampton Motor Group is expected to attend this motor show once again. And why not?

I’ll do likewise for lore’s sake, even though their 1994-95 lineup may not be entirely all-new.

No reason why they wouldn’t. It’s what I’m gonna do :stuck_out_tongue:

Seeing the videos makes me wish I was in 1994 myself. I am excited to make some blobby cars!

Just a little reminder for more variety - a car in a 1994 show doesn’t have to be a 1994/5 model - it can just as well be a facelift or a new edition of an earlier model, or a concept/prototype announcing a later model.


Yep, just for example the Cadillac LSE (Catera) was one of the cars unveiled in those videos and that wasn’t released until late 1996.


Take flight with the all-new 1995 Hampton Harrier.

Our new flagship sports car, the Harrier, is built to take on the best performance cars that the world can offer.

Standard features include:

  • A 405-horsepower, 5.4-litre, naturally aspirated V8 driving the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox and a mechanical limited-slip differential - endowing the Harrier with a scorching 0-60 mph time of 4.6 seconds and a blistering top speed of 187 mph.

  • Fully independent suspension front and rear with adaptive dampers and traction control, skillfully tuned to provide agile, racing-inspired handling (1.09 g on a 200-metre skid pad) in all situations without compromising ride comfort in any way.

  • 4-wheel vented disc brakes with ABS, providing excellent stopping power with minimal fade, even after repeated heavy use.

  • 18-inch forged alloy wheels and high-performance tires, designed as much for style as function.

  • A sumptuous luxury interior with 2 seats upholstered in genuine Connolly leather and woodgrain trim panels on the dashboard, with a wide variety of colors available on customer request.

  • High-quality 4-speaker stereo sound system with AM/FM radio, cassette tape and CD player, and climate-control functions for air conditioning.

  • Driver and passenger front airbags, plus 3-point seatbelts and a reinforced structure to protect both occupants in a crash.

  • An aerodynamically sculpted body with a flat floor and discreet front and rear spoilers, designed to reduce drag and lift.

The Hampton Harrier will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 1994 as a 1995 model with a base price of $67,800 AMU. Please contact your dealer for option availability.

This is the Automation equivalent to a Bruh moment.


Here are Gatto’s entries for the 1994 New York Motor Show:
Gatto Ocelot GattoWorks 1.4, 1.6S, 1.8GT and 2.0R
The third generation of the Ocelot was unveiled in Europe last year, but it’s finally time for Gatto to export its main product to the US, and what better way to show it than with the high-performance versions?

Ocelot GattoWorks 1.4

The 1.4 is a perfectly balanced car, ideal for people who are just starting to appreciate the joy of driving. Its fully aluminium, NA, 16v inline-4 is capable of 109hp@7100rpm and 120Nm@5800rpm, with VVT, a catalytic converter, electronic fuel injection and a special tubular exhaust. The engine is paired with a 5-speed manual which sends the power to the front wheels via a mechanical LSD. Thanks to a small weight of just 1000kg (2205,51lb), this small hatchback can go from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in 8.9s and go on to reach a top speed of 202km/h (125.52mph). The car has power steering, 4 seats, a cassette player and the best safety systems like ABS and traction control

Ocelot GattoWorks 1.6 S

The Ocelot S is the natural evolution from the 1.4, for people who want a serious hot hatch contender capable of outperforming cars such as the Fiat Tipo 16v and other famous performance cars. The engine is capable of 126hp@7100rpm and 139Nm@5100rpm. It uses the same gearbox and differential as the 1.4, but thanks to the power bump, it’s 0.8s faster from 0 to 100km/h (62mph). The top speed remains equal, with the interior being one of the major differences, since it can sit one more person and has a better quality stereo system. It also shares its braking system with the 1.4 (vented discs in front and drums in back)

Ocelot GattoWorks 1.8 GT

If the 1.6 is designed to outperform smaller hot hatches, the 1.8 aims straightly at the best ones like the Renault Clio Williams. The engine is still a NA unit, but it’s now capable of 158hp@7100rpm and 171Nm@5200rpm, thanks to stronger internals, a richer air-fuel mixture and some tuning wizardry. The traction is still FWD and the gearbox is still the same as the 1.4 and 1.6, with some minor changes in order to guarantee a top speed of 218km/h (135.46mph) and a 0-100 (62mph) time of 7.1s. The 1.8 is lighter than the 1.6, thanks to the removal of one of the seats, like in the 1.4

Ocelot 2.0 R

The 2.0 R is the true high-performance machine: it redefines the term hot hatch, with an absolute monster of a car. The 1.8 of the GT has been enlarged to 2 liters and is now equipped with a turbocharger, so now it’s capable of 250hp@6900rpm and 277Nm@4700rpm. This absurd amount of power is sent to all four wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission paired with a mechanical LSD, making the car capable of 236km/h (146.64mph). The 1203kg (2562.16lb) body is propelled to 100km/h (62mph) in just 5.7s. The car has been fitted with a sportier interior, flared fenders, special rims, special foglights, reshaped bumpers and a hood scoop for maximum cooling capabilities. The braking system has also been updated to a 4-wheels vented discs setup

Gatto Futuro SM concept

The Futuro (future in Italian) is Gatto’s vision for a zero-emissions car. This prototype would be the first of Gatto’s new Silent Mobility (SM) full-electric cars. Based on the Gepard “G7” chassis, the Futuro SM features new lithium-ion battery cells and two three-phase brushless motors. The autonomy has been tested on the Nardò track, obtaining a total value of 190km (118.06mi) at 65km/h (40mph) with a top speed of 130km/h (80.78mph) and a 0 to 100 (62mph) time of 12.5s

Gatto Gepard G7 EM concept

The Gepard G7 EM (Efficient Mobility) is a concept for a very efficient version of the regular Gepard “G7”. Powered by a turbocharged 2.0L 16v capable of 144hp@6100rpm and 224.1Nm@2500rpm, this can can achieve an average fuel economy of 4.5 L/100km (52.27USmpg), thanks to small tires, special underbody panels and an engine capable of an average efficiency of 30.9%, with a maximum of 35.74%. We are proud to say that these results were achieved with regular production technology, and that you will see the production version of this on the roads in the second semester of 1995

Gatto Motors, Made For You



Are all those engines turbocharged? Because the name says “charged”, but the torque figures say “eco tuned N/A”. How is a turbo 2.3 making 152 lb-ft? Why are about half of them so small (2.5 in that body?)? And why is all that marketing so discouraging?



Soar into the future with the 1995 Hampton Vulture range.

Above, left to right: Hampton Vulture Coupe range - 3.5 (far left), 3.2 (left), 2.0 (right), and 1.8 (far right). Below, left to right: Hampton Vulture Spider range - 3.5 (far left), 3.2 (left), 2.0 (right), and 1.8 (far right).

Although the Harrier has its place in our lineup as its flagship sports car, we understand that its high price puts it out of reach of customers with smaller budgets. To that end, we have also chosen to show a smaller, lighter and more affordable offering - the new-for-'95 Vulture, scheduled to go on sale in the fourth quarter of 1994 as a 1995 model. Pricing for the range is as follows:

  • 1.8 (115-bhp I4) - from $23,000 AMU (Coupe), $24,500 AMU (Spider)
  • 2.0 (155-bhp I4) - from $24,800 AMU (Coupe), $26,200 AMU (Spider)
  • 3.2 (215-bhp I6) - from $30,900 AMU (Coupe), $32,300 AMU (Spider)
  • 3.5 (305-bhp I6) - from $36,800 AMU (Coupe), $38,200 AMU (Spider)

All Vultures come standard with a six-speed manual transmission (five-speed automatic optional on all except for 3.5), a limited-slip differential (viscous on four-cylinder models, Torsen on six-cylinder models), driver and passenger front airbags, variable-ratio power steering, ABS, traction control, and AM/FM stereo with cassette tape deck and CD player. Metallic paint is a no-cost option on all trims.
