TURBO national custom car show in Abu Dhabi
Organisers CMPi have revealed what is set to be the region’s premier tuning and custom car and bike show, TURBO: For A Custom Nation. Debuting at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre between 10th and 12th of October (update: postponed to November 13-15) the show will be apparently be packed with stunning vehicles from the world’s most famous and fastest tuners and feature some of the best customised cars exclusively brought in for TURBO.
Visitors can also survey the latest styling, performance products, incredible audio/visual displays, live drifting demonstrations, screaming engines and smoking tyres! From modified American muscle cars and luxury restyled European supercars to the fastest cars in the Far East, visitors will be able to take inspiration from the best and latest in custom car and motorbike trends from around the world.
Heading over to the UAE to spearhead the launch of TURBO is Dan Anslow, a former editor of tuning and performance magazine, MAX Power, having previously organised the MAX Power Live events in the UK.
Anslow then went on to explain how the name for the show was decided; “Following discussions with key industry figures here in the region, it became clear that there are a few words everybody uses when considering their custom requirements. Turbo emerged the most common request when people enter the stores of car and bike tuning and modification specialists.”
Here’s my advice though: Around here, do not go to some random self-proclaimed performance garage and say “turbo.” Otherwise you’ll be in for a long journey to destruction, with an empty wallet and no transportation.
