City Gears Up For Another Cape Town Motor Show Spectacular

The Cape Town Motor Show, in partnership with the City of Cape Town, is set to wow the crowds again at Sun GrandWest, from 2-4 March 2018. It promises to be a weekend of incredible fun with a broad appeal to all car and bike buffs, petrol heads and the entire family, with loads of entertainment for everyone.

The Mother City will again boast a motor show that rivals any of the international equivalents. Cape Town Motor Show will span the length and breadth of the Sun GrandWest Entertainment World, including the Market Hall, Grand Arena, the Sun Exhibits Hall, and an Outdoor Area, and will include a Drifting Zone, Nostalgia Zone, Chill Zone, and Camping and 4×4 area.

Explore the automotive industry’s latest creations, featuring classic, luxury and exotic cars, with all the major vehicle manufacturers represented. Visitors can get up-close and personal with all the newest vehicle models that will soon be at dealerships around the country.

Motorbike enthusiasts will be glad to know that if it has two wheels (sometimes three) and an engine, it will be at the Cape Town Motor Show. Representing the best products, bikes and services available from leading companies across the globe – the show is a haven for bikers of any age, or level of experience – and to top it off, one lucky visitor will leave the Cape Town Motor Show with their own Harley-Davidson!

Drift car displays will run all weekend and spectators are welcome to either watch from the sidelines, or for those brave enough, join our experts as a passenger as they take you for the spin of your life.

Additionally, visitors will have the opportunity to see numerous accessories and auto-related exhibits, competition vehicles, muscle cars, monster trucks, antique and collector cars, engine modifications (pimped-up rides), Sound-Off Beats competitions, virtual simulations, custom trucks, hot-rods, car wrapping, and much more!

This year also boasts a number of mouth-watering new additions that include a major new outdoor area with the Wildebeest 4×4 Challenge Club. All 4X4s from your standard off-the-show-room 4X4 to your extreme 4X4s, tracks will be built for all classes of vehicles to challenge technical skills as well as the capabilities of the different cars. The Cape Town Motor Show is also excited to announce that another new spectacle is The Dusty Rebels and the Bombshells area.  Here visitors can expect axe throwing, selected pre ‘63 cars, Café racers, Metal Shaping by Anvl Kraft, Food truckSkateboardinging & BMX demos, Jack Daniel’s Bars, SCAR, Barnet Fair Barbers and the most insane Mutant Desert vehicles.

To top things off, Jaguar Land Rover South Africa will be showcasing their world-first Two Icons Tour experience, which has just been in JHB at the top of Sandton City and now comes to the Cape Town Motor Show.  This exhilarating experience will give guests an opportunity to experience Jaguar’s Art of Performance Tour and Land Rover’s Above and Beyond Tour, like never before, in one location!

The Tour will give guests an opportunity to immerse themselves in various experiences across the two brands including self-drive and driven experiences, as well as other brand activities taking place at the Cape Town Motor Show. Besides all the above attractions, there are also going to be helicopter flips available and WFI Auto Detailing are really pulling out the stops with a prize where Old School muscle meets new school convenience. WFI and the Cape Town Motor Show are currently putting together a late 70s Ford model truck that is going to be a blend of old school muscle with a roaring engine and wide body lines, coupled with all the new trimmings one would hope and expect in the modern era. The Ford spirit will truly reveal itself in this custom muscle truck. Some lucky Cape Town Motor Show visitor will get to leave the show with this beauty. Raffles are separate to the show tickets and can be purchased at R75 per raffle ticket. VIP ticket holders get an immediate entry. The raffle will be drawn on the Sunday and you have to be at the Show on the day to take it home if you win. (No under-18s or non-drivers allowed)

Heart 104.9 will be broadcasting live from the event, so bring the whole family down to be a part of this weekend spectacular.
