The Frankfurt Motor Show is so massive (12 huge buildings spread over a large chunk of Frankfurt real estate) that Jalopnik sent both Máté and I to double team it. Máté is covering all of the big reveals and serious stuff leaving me to go on the hunt for everything else that makes Frankfurt one of the must see shows.
First, I went over to ride the Honda McLaren F1 Virtual Reality ride. It was broken... or maybe that’s just the way its supposed to be. The ride does promise a virtual reality experience, and nothing says “Honda McLaren” like a sleek and expensive piece of kit that doesn’t work.
My next plan was then to go and find as many supercars as I could. I did, and they were all right. And all white.

Most Hated Guys At The Show By All Media Photographers
With dozens of people crowding around the same car, getting an unobstructed shot is nearly impossible. However every once in a while you would get a few seconds with no one blocking the view.
You’d line everything up get the right focus and then BAM! The dreaded Show Car Detailer photo bomber.
More to come, unless they kick us out. This is always a possibility when we go to auto shows.
