Photo Dump: 2nd Philippine International Motor Show

Long-overdue but I’m posting anyways.

Compared to last year, the set-up of the cars weren’t as crowded. But it lacked the wow factor that I felt last year. Maybe because I’ve seen most cars already from the autoshow last summer. Plus, since we went on the last day, there were too many people to get clear shots of the cars. Sigh. Oh wellz. Next time, we’ll come early.

Anyway, here are some of my favorite photos.

Ready… Set… Go!

The Limited Edition Vios is cool (but red-hot).

Some ethnic beats from the Honda Jazz section
No photo of the Honda Jazz – there were too many people.

Understated luxury. Love this BMW.

The cute Suzuki Swift!
The poor man’s Mini Cooper. Haha

YAY for more Hybrid cars!
This reminds me of Malibu Barbie!

GM’s set-up is my favorite.
Lookie! Almost like a game show set. Hihi.

Ironman’s wheels – the Audi R8 (WOW)

Good thing we got decent pictures of the R8,
despite Audi’s snotty (and unecessarily rude) crew.*

I like this set-up. It’s not too garishly made and I like the
red paint done in matte texture.

A happy balloon! I couldn’t resist. Hehe

Kia went all-out.
It’s cool to see such a clean engine!

Crash Test Dummies
The Volvo mascot and Enzo with his appropriately-themed environmental shirt.

* Imagine being awed and excited at seeing such a cool car (Audi R8), and then having a snooty Audi crew tell you to back off in a rude way (“Psst, tabi!”) Well, excuuuuuse me. Don’t we even deserve a ‘Ma’am’ or ‘Sir’ and a polite “Please be careful around the car”? Tsk. Such a turn-off. 😐
