Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG and SLS AMG Final Edition

The 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, which opens to the media on November 20, is the first major North-American auto show of the 2014 season. As such, it's overflowing with new-vehicle introductions, including not only North-American but world debuts.

The Tokyo Motor Show is running on exactly the same dates, so a few of those debuts are taking place simultaneously but most are unique to LA.

Following is a listing of some of the new vehicles, both production and concept, that are particular highlights of the Los Angeles show.

We'll update with more details as the show progresses, so check back regularly:
