DETROIT, Jan. 13, 2015 – Already recognized for enabling many of the top performing production cars in the world, Michelin is once again prominently featured on several high profile world premieres and other recently introduced automobiles during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The following automobiles will exclusively feature Michelin tires that were specifically designed and developed in partnership with their respective manufacturer:
