Latest new cars to delight Speedshow fans

Latest new cars to delight Speedshow fans

A significant aspect of this year’s Speedshow will be an exciting line-up of brand-new motor vehicles, says Speedshow organiser Keith Sharp.

“It’s great to have such a fantastic range of new cars to add yet another dimension to Speedshow,” says Sharp. “We’re thrilled to be showcasing the very latest models from Mercedes Benz, Ford, Mazda, Kia, Nissan, Suzuki, BMW, Peugeot, Chrysler and others at this year’s Speedshow which takes place at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland over the weekend of 19 and 20 September.

“It’s particularly exciting that several of the new vehicle distributors have elected to use Speedshow to debut their 2010 models, cars never before seen in New Zealand. And with all the vehicles actually for sale at the show, we could probably say the Speedshow motor show will be the country’s largest new car showroom for that one weekend.

“I’d love to say what these new models are, but obviously the fact these cars are being debuted at Speedshow means we can’t talk about them beforehand! Expect to see some very interesting and exciting new models in our dedicated Speedshow motor show.”

Speedshow ‘09 also includes the world’s fastest NASCAR, Roary the Racing Car in the new Speedshow 4 Kids area, fantastic new motorcycles from some of the world’s leading manufacturers, a wide array of motoring and motorsport-related exhibitors and the Batmobile from the original Batman movie courtesy of Warner Bros. Movie World on the Gold Coast. Tickets are available from Ticketek and more information about the event can be found on
