Motoring Exposure 2013 Year in Review

Looking back on an exciting 2013.

This year has been pretty exciting for the staff at Motoring Exposure. We attended a few great car shows, met some spectacular people, and covered some fascinating stories and vehicles. We saw a few companies celebrate special anniversaries from Lamborghini to Aston Martin and release a slew of special edition models for us to enjoy. The past year was memorable for the entire automotive world and we can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store.

We’d like to thank all of our fans for being a part of the Motoring Exposure community in 2013.
