Extra Surprises At BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys!


Extra Surprises At BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys!

BP Ultimate has motor sport covered at this year's Big Boys Toys with the BP Ultimate Motorsport Zone featuring an array of race cars and the opportunity to become a rally co-driver! We're also proud to present the best of the best (and something special for the rest!) with the recent addition of Lamborghini's gorgeous Gallardo Spider, and Ferrari's brand new F430 Spider.

The F430 is powered by an all new 490hp V8, capable of pushing the car to a top speed of over 310km/h , while covering the 0-100km/h sprint in just 4.1 seconds! Also on display are Porsche's million dollar Carrera GT and the all new Cayman, so it's a jam-packed show for elite sports car fans!

The NZ Motorcycle Show will also have a vast array of spectacular machines on show, including a Ben Townley 450cc KTM, a MotoGP replica Honda and the bullet-proof BMW R1150GS Adventure ridden around the world by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman in the Long Way Round TV series.

There's a special treat in store for a few lucky show visitors, who will have their cars valeted in the BP Ultimate Motorsport Zone.

There are more ultimate treats in store, though, because in addition to the $250,000 worth of prizes to be won at the show, BP Ultimate is giving away $5,000 worth of fuel! All visitors are eligible to enter and the winner is drawn after the show.

It's a great day out, with the latest technology, non-stop entertainment in the Arena, an exclusive area for ladies and some great show specials for shoppers...

The 9th annual BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys returns to the Auckland Showgrounds in Greenlane from November 11th to November 13th - an event not to be missed.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
