Default The 2016 Turin Motor Show - Salone dell'auto di Torino Parco Valentino

In trying to revive the auto show tradition of Turin, which fell into irrelevance post 2001, the city has tried to re-imagine and reinvent the auto-show. Thus was born in 2015, an open-air, free-to-public, exhibition called the Salone dell’Automobile di Torino that is held in the vast open public park named Parco Valentino in Turin.
The second edition of the show was held this month, between 8 – 12 June 2016. I was lucky to be in the city and did a leisurely walking tour in the open air park of Valentino one Sunday afternoon.
Beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon, loads of production and concept cars amongst lush green surrounding and medieval castles… beautiful!

Sharing some pictures from the show...

Fiat group being the resident car manufacturer had its latest and greatest to show - the Fiat Tipo that has been recently launched. The product on show was the 5-porte hatchback; they also have the 4-porte sedan and station wagon body styles launched in the range. It has received a good response in the local market of Italy. Fiat also showed the evergreen Cinquecento and the 124 Spider
The other much awaited (since June last year) Alfa Romeo Giulia was on display. Also the 4c Spider from Alfa.
Maserati had the Levante and the Ghibli drawing crowds.
Although I didnt get a good picture, Fiat Professional was there showing the Fiat Fullback truck body-style

Ferrari had the 488 Spider and the grand-tourer GTC4 Lusso (which premiered at the Geneva Motor show) on display.Pictures below;

More amazing cars were in line. Each participant had open stalls and some of the manufacturers were also offering test drives to visitors!
