Exclusive sneak peek: The Gallery at MGM Grand Detroit

The Detroit auto show, where previews begin 14 January, will have no shortage of special machinery on view.

But most of the lust-inducing exotica will be reserved for the Gallery – an invitation-only soiree held at the MGM Grand Detroit on the night of 12 January. BBC Autos managed to sneak a camera behind the scenes to capture the load-in as it unfolds.
