From Feb. 3-6, the Duke Energy Convention Center is hosting the 34th Cincinnati Auto Expo, featuring the latest domestic and imported car models and electric vehicles, along with attractions for the whole family.

Inside the expo, visitors can get a peak at the North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of Year — the Ford Maverick and Ford Bronco respectively. New electric vehicles will also be showcased, including the BMW iX and i4 and Volkswagen ID.4.

Gear heads can drool over "Dream Machine Boulevard" — a row of high-value Alfa Romeos, Maseratis and Porsches — or test drive the "Ford Racing Simulator" on an immersive course.

Visitors will also get the chance to see three cars that starred in movies that were filmed in Cincinnati: a 1973 Gran Torino from Miles Ahead, a 1976 Lincoln Continental from The Life and Death of John Gotti and a 1949 Packard from Carol.
