The Essen Motor Show is in the starting blocks: The curtain for the performance festival at Messe Essen will fall on November 30 (Preview Day). The more than 500 exhibitors will include well-known automobile manufacturers and their partners, e.g. Mercedes FanWorld, Mustang Owners Club, Porsche Motorsport, Renault Motorsport, Skoda and Volkswagen Motorsport. They will show new sports cars and current racing vehicles. The highlights will include German and fair premieres of the new Ford Mustang Bullitt, Renault Mégane R.S. Trophy and Skoda Kodiaq RS.

The new Ford Mustang Bullitt on the booth of the Mustang Owners Club in Hall 5 cites numerous details of the Mustang Fastback GT390 from 1968 which, together with the title hero Steve McQueen, played the leading role in the legendary cinema film entitled Bullitt. These include the subtle chrome highlights around the radiator grille and along the front side windows as well as the black grille reserved for this special edition alone. The new Ford Mustang Bullitt is outstanding on the technical side too. Its V8 engine with a capacity of 5.0 litres mobilises 338 kW (460 bhp) and thus 7 kW (10 bhp) more than the Ford Mustang GT.

Mercedes FanWorld Presents the Vehicle Belonging to the Pop Star Usher

Not only film fans but also music fans will be able to admire well-known cars at the Essen Motor Show. In Hall 3, the Mercedes FanWorld will present 13 vehicles with the star, including the Mercedes-Benz GLC 350 e 4MATIC coupé plug-in hybrid belonging to the pop star Usher. The American Grammy prizewinner completed the London-Bologna stage of this year's Gumball 3000 rally in exactly this vehicle. Moreover, the Mercedes-Benz X‑Class Exy Extreme from Carlex Design will shine on the booth of the Mercedes fans. Optimum driving fun is ensured by the raised chassis, the special tyres and "Lazer" roof lighting. Worldwide, there are only 250 exemplars of the vehicle.
