CarAdvice recently spoke to organisers of the 2010 Australian International Motor Show to find out just how many manufacturers will be attending the show. They said to us that we needn't worry, the show has apparently been booked to full capacity with over 32 different manufacturers.
So although yesterday we brought some bad news to enthusiasts, informing what manufacturers would not be attending this year's show, the good news is there will be plenty of car makers presenting their best.
At this year's event there'll also be 30 local, and a number of global premiers to debut at the event, including Mazda with its new BT-50, the new Toyota FT-86G Sports Concept and the Ford Ranger, and let's not forget the highly-anticipated Range Rover Evoque. AIMS director, Russ Tyrie, recently said,
"More and more exhibitors are revealing their plans for the show and it looks like there will be a number of major global firsts which is exciting for show goers and the media. We will also have more than 30 local first-time reveals which will cover most sectors of the industry so there will literally be something for everyone to see for the first time.”
One element of the show that will be attracting every enthusiast will be the launch of the 'Desirable Drives' section, which oranisers say will be in Hall 6. There'll be more information on this new element in the coming weeks but organisers have exclusively told CarAdvice that this will be home to cars such as Koenigsegg, Lotus and Bufori. Definitely a section to look out for.
We'll bring you more updates on the show in the next few weeks, so stay tuned.
And don't forget about the early bird ticket prices, which finish on October 8.
