Sporty series vehicles

Skoda shows sporty cars at Essen Motor Show.
Those who want to have their gas foot in touch with the latest trends come to the ESSEN MOTOR SHOW. Hardly an industry is currently developing as fast as the automobile industry, and the trade exhibition in Essen is an ideal platform in order to present new products and innovations to a most welcoming public. Therefore, our exhibitors are also increasingly presenting their sports series cars in Essen.


Motorsports at Essen Motor Show.
Complete control over power and dynamics – the attraction of motor sport lies in the control of sheer untameable power. When the heart pounds faster as soon as the key is put into the lock, when the steering wheel vibrates in the hands with a promise and the engine roars provocatively already just by a light touch of the accelerator pedal - that is the fascination of motor sport. And exactly that is what the fans at the Essen Motor Show experience live, direct and up close.


Brabus-Tuning at Essen Motor Show.
When it comes to tuning, there is no way to get around the Essen Motor Show. The world’s largest trade exhibition for tuning is also the leading trade exhibition for the entire industry and serves as a source of inspiration and materials for ten of thousands of fans. The Essen Motor Show not only represents the finale of a motorsport season, it is also the starting gun for the tuners who stock up with new parts in Essen.

Classic Cars

Classsic Cars at Essen Motor Show.
The passion for Classic Cars can be compared with the love for a good wine. Like them Classic Cars are an expression of taste and style; but they are likewise investment property and collectors’ items. And just like with good wines there are also real connoisseurs in the modern classic and antique car segments. At the Essen Motor Show they meet at the Classic and Prestige Salon.


Motorcycles at Essen Motor Show.
Motorcycle fans are well catered for at the Essen Motor Show. An entire hall is being devoted for the first time to fully motorised two-wheelers. The Speed Bike Show with distinctive, bizarre and fast bikes is combined with a major exhibition area for manufacturers and dealers.
