Burj Dubai Classic Car Show extended to 4 days
Dubai, December 7, 2009
The second edition of the Burj Dubai Classic Car Show in February 2010 has been extended to four days, from February 18 to 21, owing to public demand and stronger participation from classic car lovers in the region.
In its debut in February this year, the Burj Dubai Classic Car Show held at Emaar Boulevard - set to be one of the finest boulevards in the world in Downtown Burj Dubai - brought together thousands of spectators to witness hundreds of classic car collectors from the region showcasing their prized possessions.
Also featuring classic car parades and a competition, it was the first of its kind experience for Dubai.
The excitement generated will continue in the next edition, as Emaar prepares to create a more lavish spectacle of classic cars in the second edition with more participating cars, parades, competitions and attractive lifestyle events that will appeal to all sections of visitors.
The participating classic cars ranged from some turn of the century models to several from the early 1970s. The show provided a glimpse on the evolution of motoring and highlighting humanity’s passion for cars. They offered a distinctive insight into how modern cars evolved, the creativity associated and how even after decades, they continue to excite and enthrall onlookers.
“The timeless quality of classic cars finds its resonance in the design patterns adopted in Downtown Burj Dubai too,” said Ahmad Al Matrooshi, managing director – UAE, Emaar Properties.
Emaar is organising the event with the support of the Automobile & Touring Club of the United Arab Emirates (ATCUAE) - a member of the 'Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens' (FIVA), the world-wide authority for historic vehicles.
Downtown Burj Dubai, the flagship mega-project of Emaar, is anchored by Burj Dubai, the world’s tallest building. Described as the new heart of the city, the established community features The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination; Souk Al Bahar, a social hotspot featuring modern cafes and theme-shops; The Dubai Fountain, the world’s tallest performing fountain; as well as homes and offices.
