Dubai International Motor Show 2013: A Success
Tantalizing 2014 Car Models
The very lesson I learned from Dubai International Motor Show 2013 is that never come a show like this and only spend 1 or 2 hours. You need to spare 1 whole day for you to fully enjoy and feel the real essence of the show. Pulling Dhs 55/- from your pocket and then go there and spend 1 or 2 hours only is not enough. And I’m regretting a bit why I did just that. As a car enthusiast also, I could have experienced all those new features from those new car models from different car brands on display. And going there on the last day of the event should not happen on my next DIMS visit hopefully.
From bikes, trikes (Italy and India’s famous tuktuk), cheap Chinese car brands, to few of the most expensive and fastest cars in the world today were on display. Despite the good presentations made, still Chinese car brands were not able to wow so many from the crowd but not to this I consider a funny stretched limo version from Great Wall.
If organizers purposely segregated the common popular car brands in one concourse of Dubai World Trade Center from luxury brands in the other concourse, then why Hyundai Motors displayed alongside Lamborghini, Bugatti, McLaren, Ferrari, Mercedes, Range Rover, Bentley, BMW, Aston Martin, Rolls Royce, Maserati, Porsche, the New W Motors among other luxury brands? Just saying though. 🙂
Some car brand display areas have enclosed cubicles intended for possible buyers, to attract and to give more exclusivity. But what interests me is how the Mini Cooper hanged an actual Mini on the wall which for me, a simple yet cool display. 🙂
Another attention grabber at the motor show was the Made in Dubai Devel Sixteen. A super car built in Dubai with an enormous body and claimed to have a 5000 horsepower. A supercar aimed to break all existing world records.
And on my way out from the Dubai International Motor Show 2013, I found a bit shocking discovery when I passed by Volkswagen’s display. The Polo Sedan is sold at a very affordable price. A very attractive price than that of a Toyota Yaris. Seriously!
Looking forward to
next year’s 2015’s motor show and I will make it sure, to be there on the opening day itself. Fingers crossed.
