The invention of the wheel was man’s greatest achievement until the invention of the three other wheels and 14 cup holders that made the automobile possible. Get familiar with man’s greatest invention with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get two tickets to the Motor Trend International Auto Show Las Vegas (up to an $18 value). This Groupon can be used on one of the following dates from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.:
- Friday, November 25

Admission to the auto show is free for kids 6 and younger; $6 for children 7–12, service members with military ID, and seniors 62 and older; and $9 for adults 13 and older.
Produced by Motor Trend Auto Shows, the auto show greets car lovers with automotive attractions that highlight the most popular new rides, with models from manufacturers such as Buick, GMC, and Volkswagen. Visitors admire more than 40 new vehicles including the 21st Century Volkswagen Beetle, which, like a real beetle, is hearty, fast, and runs entirely on crushed ants. Car displays treat eyes to up-close peeks of some of the world’s most coveted luxury buggies from designers including Mercedes-Benz and BMW. The 2012 Buick Verano and 2012 Acura TL will make public debuts and join fellow vehicles on display such as the Hyuandai Veloster and Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Rock-It the Robot comes to life to entertain crowds, dancing to and lip-synching popular songs, and kids can test-drive video games hot off the press at 1 of 17 gaming stations featuring Xbox 360, PlayStation, and Nintendo Wii.
Guests can coordinate visits with the show’s special one-day events. On Saturday, a Mario Kart Wii tournament stuffs the winner’s wallet with a $100 gift card to GameStop, helping gamers stock up on new releases or old wood-burning Super Nintendos. On Sunday, fans mingle with guests from the Marvel universe, chewing over advances in webbing technology with Spider-Man between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and debating shield aerodynamics with Captain America between 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday’s first 100 attendees also walk away with a free DVD redemption postcards for Cowboys & Aliens, which is scheduled to hit stores on December 6.
