The 43rd annual Miami International Auto Show ended its 10-day run on Sunday wih an 8 percent increase in paid attendance compared to last year, organizers said Monday.

The show presented several hundred new cars, crossovers and SUVs from more than 40 major manufacturers. Many car manufacturers including Buick, Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, Chrysler, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Kia, Scion, Mazda and Toyota participated in Ride & Drive events that put attendees behind the wheel for a spin around the streets of Miami Beach.

Other show highlights included the Camp Jeep exhibit; a Havana Classics exhibit that featured 12 autos reminiscent of Cuba of yesteryear including a 1936 Ford Cabriolet originally owned by the late actress Katharine Hepburn; and a Topless in Miami exhibit which showcased convertible versions of the Porsche 911 4S Carrera Cabriolet, Chrysler 200, Fiat Abarth, Nissan 370 Z and others.

The Miami International Show is produced by the South Florida Automobile Dealers Association, a four-county group of 190 new car dealers from The Keys to the Palm Beaches. The association said that the next, 44th edition of the Miami International Auto Show, will be held November 7-16, 2014.
