As there were many car enthusiasts attending the Car Show, we had to queue and were only allowed in by batches by the organizer to avoid overcrowding. Despite this, it pays off waiting to check out these awesome rides that you’ll like. Ranging from the retro to modern and futuristic designs, all these displays are housed in the same compound.

The BMW1, M6, BMWi3 and BMWi8 series and Bikes are all displayed just metres apart.

I took picture of the bike as the design reminded me of the Ghost Rider Movie image.

The new BMWi8 Concours d’Elegance Edition packs a punch in its special design which makes it unique. I don’t usually fancy matte cars but the BMWi8 is decked out in matte grey, blue accents at the headlights and a curvy sleek back design.

BMW M6 Coupe – Personally, I prefer the M6 designs. Official figures say that the acceleration from 0-100 km/h (62mph) comes in about 4 secs, with the electronically governed top speed at 250 km/h! It’ll be great to drive this on long distance road trips.

THE RETRO CARS

BMW M1 – The M1 was conceptualized as a race car, and then homologated through civilian series production. These cars were hand-built from 1978 to 1981 and the M1 is the rarest production BMW sports car in the company’s lengthy history.

Classic Isetta Mini-Car – This model was the world’s first mass-production in 1955 and was the top-selling single-cylinder car in the world.

Fancy mini cars and bikes for your little ones? These are really cute that the kids just refuse to leave these rides.

Seems like the brand is ingrained in them from young to become future BMW or MINI drivers. Haha.
