Thousands of people will walk through the Music City Center this weekend to admire hundreds of cars of all different kinds.

One of the cars on display is the McLaren 720, one of five in the entire country. It's got 710 horsepower and goes for $330,000.

More than 25 cars will be available to test drive of the Toyota, Chevrolet and Fiat Chrysler variety.

"It's a really good opportunity for people to get in and around the car in a low-pressure environment. There's no salespeople, no one trying to push a sale on you," said director of events Derek Walsh.

For those who are car enthusiasts, the classic section is a must-see.

The 1966 prototype of the Ford Bronco is on display. The model is for sale at $188,000.

News 4 asked the organizers what the coolest gadget in the building is, and they said it was the 2017 Chevy Bolt. It comes with Apple Pay capabilities, so you can see the mirror image of your iPhone on the dashboard. It is the only fully electric vehicle in the showroom, which is filled with more than 350 different cars.

The Nashville International Auto Show runs from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Click here for more information.
