For a change this time Mercedes Benz have a dedicated AMG Stall at the Show. No stock Mercs here this time around. Instead there are some monsters from the AMG stable.. The SL63, the E63 and the big Daddy of them all the SLS AMG. I would call the SLS the star of the show . i had been waiting to see the car since a long time and now that I have, I am in love. The cockpit is mindblowing and you see carbon fibre almost everywhere. And the engine note? Of course its to die for. For those who want to experience the SLS, there is a GT5 based simulator put up at the stall where you can drive the car on a track virtually

Now the pictures

Lamborghini yet again displaying the LP 560 just like last year. Its surprising how they have never managed to get a Murcielago for display in any of the ACI Shows so far. The Bugatti Veyron would have been an awesome display since it has been launched recent and is sold by the same dealer

The BMW display is right next to the Merc stall. Nothing extraordinary on display here. There is a 7, an F10 5 Series, the new X5 and a Z4.

The Super Car Gallery has just three cars on display. The Ferrari 599 GTB, Audi R8 and Porsche Panamera S which the same car seen at the launch. The much expected Ferrari F458 didnt make it and the number of cars displayed could have been more.

After a long wait Mitsubishi finally launched and announced the prices of the EVO X at the ACI Show. The EVO will be priced at 49.95 lakhs ex showroom Delhi. Quite pricey really. Other cars giving the EVO company at the stall are the Montero and the Outlander

Thie Nissan stall is interesting. At first you will see two Micras and the 370Z sportscar but later you will realize that something is different. One of the Micras is diesel. The Micra D will be on the roads in December and will come in two variants XV and XV Premium. No word on the pricees yet.

I was surprised to see no stalls from the other biggies like Suzuki, Yamaha and Kawasaki

DC Design are showcasing the Imperator SUV which was earlier seen at the Auto Expo this year. It eides on huge 28 inch alloys and really thin tyre profile. There is also a Fortuner with customized interiors.
