Rev your engines: The Dubai International Motor Show is back
Featuring a classic car auction and the world’s first titanium supercar…
The Dubai International Motor Show is an annual event where the UAE’s car enthusiasts can gawk at the latest and greatest that the automotive world has to offer.
Taking place over four days between 14 – 18 November at the Dubai World Trade Centre, this year promises to be bigger and better than ever with more than 550 cars and bikes on show including a host of supercars and never-before-seen in the region concept cars.
The theme for this year’s show is decidedly future-looking, with many of the vehicles and concepts on show focusing on the next generation of transportation technology including automated/driver-less cars, electric vehicles, flying cars and much more.
The list of cars on show is impressive with brands like Ferrari, Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Porsche and many more getting involved.
You’ll see everything from this vintage 1967 Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman
And the world’s first titanium supercar the Icona Vulcano
To this adorable oversized LEGO car for kids to learn how to drive in a safe environment
Tickets start at Dhs50 for a single day pass and the event is open to the general public.
Here are some of the cool activities you can check out over the four days
Boulevard of Dreams
This zone exclusively dedicated to supercars is a chance for visitors to get up close and personal with some of the coolest and glamourous automobiles on the planet.
You can expect to see the very best on show from the likes of McLaren, Lamborghini and Ferrari on show, as well as UAE manufacturers Devel, Shaali and Rimac.
Race to Win
Think you have what it takes to race in a supercar? This virtual racing competition pits you against other attendees in a simulated driving race that mirror the conditions and driving dynamics of an actual race track.
There are two categories: under-16s who compete for a chance to win daily vouchers to Dubai Autodrome’s indoor karting. And an over-16s race for adults, with a grand prize that will let you take a spin in a McLaren super car.
Classic car auction
If in the market for a new ride (and have money to burn) the classic car auction will kick off at 6pm on Friday 17 November.
With around 20 classic cars up going under the hammer (some of which will be present at the show), visitors will have the chance to bid on a selection of vintage rides that are rarely seen in the UAE.
