MOTORIN'. The Frankfurt Motor Show taking place in Germany right now is an architectural display to rival the Venice Architecture Biennale. Jalopnik previews the Inception-esque interiors at the Audi display, the full-scale arena presentation by Mercedes, and the indoor figure-8 track running above and through the visitor floors. The German pavilion may be the one to watch in Venice next year. [Jalopnik]
