Auto Show Models @ Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2013

KLIMS-2013-models-A13

Professional Auto Show Model has come a long way in ensuring a successful motor show. They are first and foremost very attractive, friendly, model trained and well verse in the specification of the vehicles they are attending to. They used to be just eye candies in any auto show but their professionalism has seen much improvement over the years.

Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2013 is back again this year after a ‘no show’ last year. Unfortunately this year, the auto show has somewhat shrunk in term of the number of car manufacturers and companies taking part. Off hand, I could see the absence of Proton, Malaysia’s own auto maker and Naza, one of the biggest auto importer in Malaysia. I don’t particular give a hoot about Proton since Proton cars are all over the streets and dump sites. If anyone wanted to have any inkling of what’s coming out from the Proton stable’s they just have to visit Mitsubishi and Honda booths and they could feast their eyes on what’s coming out from Proton in the next 30 years. What I miss was Naza’s stables of Imports like Maserati, Ferrari and other exotic parallel imported models.

The major European marques like Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Ferrari, Land Rover, Jaguar, etc have been avoiding the Malaysian Auto Show like it’s some kind of bubonic plague. I don’t blame them as Malaysian Auto Industries are so protected and inward looking, they would rather spend their money in Thailand, Indonesia and Philippines. Malaysia is just too small a country to have it’s own auto brand, coupled with uncompetitive local market, lack of brains behind the brand and the zero level of automotive technologies. They should just close down already. Period.

Most people I know go to KLIMS 2013 just to see the Auto Show Models on duty. I won’t pay RM15 just to see some normal cars that I could see on the streets everyday. Even some of the newer cars, you could do better just checking out http://www.paultan.org. There are no fabulous sports car from Ferrari, Porsche or McLaren on show. Even the concept cars are mostly absent from the show. Those high tech concepts cars and the newest cars, you just need to go to the upcoming Tokyo and LA Motor Shows. The major automakers, they don’t even know Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show actually existed.

Well, enough of my rambling about out local car brands. However I am very happy about the auto show models this year. For the first time, we are seeing imported models from Bangkok here. They are not only beautiful, they are just totally professional in terms of knowledge and presentation. That’s why I presented here some of their photos for your enjoyment and fascination.
