This year’s Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA 2015) is billed as the world’s “most important trade show for mobility” and a quick glance at the A-Z cars list is all one needs to agree with the claim. Started on 15th September for media, the biennial motor show is bigger and better than before.
For starters, Ferrari and Lamborghini world premiered 488 Spider and Huracan LP610-4 Spyder respectively. And that’s only tip of the iceberg. Eyeball magnets include the mighty Bugatti Vision GT concept, Mercedes IAA concept that redefines automotive aerodynamics, Porsche Mission E, Hyundai N 2025 Vision GT Concept, i20 WRC rally car, Rolls Royce Dawn, Bentley Bentayga, Jaguar F-Pace and VW Golf GTI Clubsport concept.
As usual, the show witnessed a plethora of world premieres of production models as well as concepts. Production models include Opel Astra, new VW Tiguan, Alfa Romea Guilia, Suzuki Baleno, Renault Talisman and Megane, Mercedes C Coupe, S Convertible, etc.
The lengthy list of futuristic concepts include Audi QE-Tron, Citroen Cactus M, Honda Project 2&4, Mazda Koeru, Nissan Gripz, Peugeot Fractal and so on. There are no short supply of facelifts, model year updates and go-faster variants.
