Sydneysiders got a bit of a taste of what to expect at the upcoming Australian International Motor Show at Darling Harbour today, as AIMS organisers presented three very special preview cars to get the automotive juices flowing.
Darling Harbour drew enthusiasts to the site to witness the awesome Hulme supercar in the flesh for the first time. Passersby also got a glimpse of the first mass-produced Australian EV, the Mitsubishi i-Miev, as well as a special Renualt Megane Trophy race car which has just been brought over from France.
The three cars only make up a small portion of the 40-plus other vehicles that will also debut at the show. Others include the new Mazda BT-50, the Toyota FT-86G and the southern hemisphere debut of the Range Rover Evoque.
AIMS director, Russ Tyrie, is excited about the show, saying in a recent report,
“The stage is set for one of the most significant motor shows of our time thanks to the breadth of new models that will be revealed this Friday. It is also encouraging to see cars like the Hulme CanAm as they excite people and showcase the true heritage of the automobile.”
AIMS will commence on Friday the 15th of October and run through until th 24th of October. Ticket prices range from $10 for children (aged 5-15), to $20 for adults. Those with a concession card will only have to pay $15.
