That 'Porsche' Gemballa Avalanche looks horrid! It has completely lost its original identity!

I've always preferred the Fezza 430 Scuderia in Giallo Modena yellow!

I quite like that vintage-ed modern car. Could anyone care to explain something more on that?

Thanks Guys for all those pics.
Let them roll.
Due to work and family commitments I had to be away from Auto Show. I was hoping to see these pics at least.

Had been to the Motor show last evening with fellow T-bhpians Steeroid & Duboy. Met up with Bivin & Joz at the venue. And then started an array of clicks. Posting only a few from the collection here.

Starting off with Audi.
On display at the Audi stand were the A4 S-line, A6, S6, S8, A5 Sportback, A5 cabriolet, R8, and a few of the Q series.

[quote=Parm;1642662]nice photos nitro, i guess you also didnt like those chinese copies of mazda and lexus, thats why you have not posted their photos!

Thank you Mishanth for sharing the photos. It seems Merc ruled the show with the stock as well as modded models.

The vintage-ed modern car is really a vintage car isn't it ?

These guys at FoilACar just coat the car with , well, foil/film.

They had a Murci with police livery at the 2008 Abu Dhabi auto show.

One of their products that I saw at MOE,

Thanks for the excellent effort.

I somehow do not share taste with the ME crowd. The cars are too loud, maybe thats why I like Porsches

Keep revving!

Next stop @ the Ford stall. There were quite a few of their regular sedans which I found uninteresting. Then I saw these.
