Breakthrough models from the 2009 Detroit Auto Show

Amid all the economic woes and talk of bailouts and mergers, the 2009 North American International Auto Show still managed to give attendees something good to talk about -- new models that could soon be for sale in showrooms across the country.

The trend of leaner and greener cars seen at the Paris and Los Angeles Auto Shows continued with the models on display in Detroit. From the Chinese BYD E6 to the Tesla Roadster, one could how the latest eco-friendly technologies can come in all shapes and sizes.

However, improvements to fuel economy did not take the entire stage. Automakers such as Maserati and Bentley showed off stylish and powerful new models... and Lamborghini exhibited some models of its own, wearing outfits from their clothing line.

All in all, even if those attending the NAIAS could not afford to buy any of the new models on display, there was still plenty of vehicles that would be worth saving up when they hit the market.
