Default Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai

"Boys don't grow up...their toys just get bigger and more expensive"

With the October heat roasting the city of Mumbai, you'd think people would only look forward to things that would cool everything down. However, with a host of fast cars, powerful engines, and new models and modifications at the 2015 Autocar Performance Show (APS), there was enough heat to give the sun an inferiority complex and draw in enthusiasts by the thousands.

Held at the MMRDA grounds in BKC, Mumbai, the event took place on Oct 29th - November 1st. With BMW and Mercedes-Benz pushing their M and AMG divisions, Maruti giving people a taste of the NEXA experience, Abarth making its Indian motor show debut and an army of superbikes gracing the tent, the show offered something for everyone.

Everything 4WD

This extreme setup was probably in place to attract visitors:

The Xenon draped in this beach patrol kit looks amazing!

Modified for aesthetics and functionality

The Bangalore based company also brought in this Mazda BT-50

A range of off-roading accessories on sale. You can either send your SUV to the company and have them kit up your machine or order parts to fit yourself (website)

Mercedes-Benz Safe Roads

Mercedes-Benz India has been carrying out this road safety program throughout the country. Seen here is the Belt-Slide exhibit
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-13.jpg

Passengers are first buckled in and then they slide down at a speed of 11 km/h before hitting the bottom edge of the machine. The impact gives you an idea of how much force you can feel even at incredibly low speeds. A reminder for those who think seatbelts are only for the highway!
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-14.jpg

The chassis of an E-Class Cabriolet shows the importance of a strong body structure with different colours representing the type of material used. For example, purple = high strength steel, red = medium strength steel, silver = cast aluminium, blue = aluminium sheet metal. The skeleton has been designed to channel any force around the passenger cell to protect the occupants
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-15.jpg

A closer look at the passenger cell and supplementary restraint system (SRS)

These goggles show you what your vision is like when under the influence of alcohol
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-17.jpg

The motive of the goggles is to stop drunk driving. Wear them and you can't even walk on a straight line. A very good and interactive exhibit, especially for kids who will hit the roads some day
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-18.jpg

The ESF (Experimental Safety) vehicle. This is equipped with safety tech like PRE-SAFE, the braking bag, etc. Some of these technologies have already been introduced into current Mercedes products. This actual car is a one off and is valued at ~1 million Euros!
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-19.jpg

Adaptive high beams sense oncoming traffic and dim down to avoid blinding other motorists. The yellow lights are cornering lights to highlight any object that may be in the driver's blind spot
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-20.jpg

Sensors detect an impact milliseconds in advance and fill up these pipes to bloat them up like a balloon, in the event of a side impact
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-21.jpg

Dynamic airbags analyze the occupant's weight, height, seating position etc, and deploy at a variable force to minimize any damage from the airbags!

An airbag between the passengers to prevent them from hitting each other

Seatbelt airbags - to reduce the chances of seatbelt bruising in the event of an accident...and here we are, begging for dual front airbags to be offered as standard
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-24.jpg

J Group Robotics

Visitors could get 3D printed busts of themselves made at the exhibit! Depending on the specification, prices range from Rs. 1,500 - 9,500
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-1-.jpg

Your body is scanned, following which, a 3D model comes up on the software. Once the design has been finalized, the printing process takes about 4 hours, so they courier the bust to you
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-2-.jpg

All these items are plastic 3D printouts!
Pics & Report: 2015 Autocar Performance Show, Mumbai-3-.jpg

The 3D printers

Plastic strings are melted and then turned into small - medium sized items

Toyota 4x4 Experience

APS regulars may be uncomfortable seeing the Fortuner 4x4 AT here instead of the Mahindra Thar

The track begins with a series of ridges

Next up is a rocky trail..

..before going up-hill..

and then straight down again

The SUV then passes through a mucky path..

..onto a one sided incline..

..into a trough..

..before culminating at the "balance beam"

DC Design

DC showcased the Avanti - definitely a strong crowd puller

Not a design that's universally likeable, but attention grabbing nonetheless

Definitely tricky to balance yourself at first. Prices range from Rs. 30,000-35,000. Lot cheaper than a Segway

Great report Tushar. I visited the event but never noticed more than half the cars / bikes at the event as I had my autocross lap to worry about . Thanks for taking the effort in compiling such a detailed report.

This time surprisingly, there are several usual participants which are missing, like those for high end sound systems, Mahindra, Super Car Club, Poonawala collection etc. Even that Batmobile isn't here nor is that crazy race-bred Nano by J.A.Customs or the K.J. Somaiya's engineering racing team. Any fun competition that you participated in? One of my friend suggested that there was some tyre changing competition on a race car. Any info on that?

That was fast! Were you working 24x7 on the report once the event was over?

For me, this year's show was pretty boring. Most of the premium cars were caged up and one could just look at them from a distance. While some of them were allowing us to enter to click pics, others were acting pricey. And to top it all off, during the media hours on the first day, things were still being set up. Unacceptable.

You missed adding a picture of the best stall at the show
