Abu Dhabi, March 24, 2008
Abu Dhabi is set to host international custom car and motorbike show in October.
Organisers CMPi said ‘Turbo: For A Custom Nation’ is expected to attract thousands of enthusiasts from across the Middle East.
Debuting at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre between October 10- 12, the show will be packed with stunning vehicles from the world’s most famous and fastest tuners and feature some of the best customised cars exclusively brought in for Turbo, the company said in a statement.
Visitors can also survey the latest styling, performance products, incredible audio/visual displays, live drifting demonstrations, screaming engines and smoking tyres, it added.
From modified American muscle cars and luxury restyled European supercars to the fastest cars in the Far East, visitors will be able to take inspiration from the best and latest in custom car and motorbike trends from around the world, the company said.
Heading over to the UAE to spearhead the launch of Turbo is Dan Anslow, a former editor of world-renowned tuning and performance magazine, MAX Power.
Having previously organised the MAX Power Live events In the UK Anslow’s experience will surely ensure that Turbo: For A Custom Nation will quickly become a must-attend event .
“Car and bike enthusiasts in the UAE are not only looking for a great personalised look through styling and other superficial modifications, but are keen to ensure that the engine and overall performance of their ride is in top form. It’s not just about driving a fast car; it’s about how you do it and how your vehicle reflects you as a person,” said Anslow.
“Following discussions with key industry figures here in the region, it became clear that there are a few words everybody uses when considering their custom requirements. “Turbo” emerged the most common request when people enter the stores of car and bike tuning and modification specialists,” he added.
Demand for customised products and services for vehicles is as strong here in the Middle East as anywhere, demonstrated by the popularity of magazines such as Top Performance and TV programmes such as MTV’s Pimp My Ride and Monster Garage, both currently airing on Showtime. – TradeArabia News Service
