Ford’s Showroom Babe, Nui Nuy on duty at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2013

The Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show is coming to an end soon. The constant stream of visitors to the show just proof that no matter what’s the condition of the economy, cars are still man’s object of desire. Some buy cars for fun, some for showing off but some out of sheer necessities for their daily commute. Due to the high import duties for cars in Malaysia, many Malaysian in their lifetime will not have the opportunity to own one of those fancy dream cars. They could only come to this type of motor show to view and ogle their dream rides. Since most of those million dollars cars like Ferrari, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Roll Royce, etc were not on display, they could do the next best thing…. ogle at the beautiful showroom babes on duty at the show. I would have to say, most of these beauties are world class by any standard! If you do not have the opportunity to visit the show for whatever reason, feel free to get to know these ‘pretties’ here. There’s no entrance fee. 🙂

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.

Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show ’10

KIA is showing off its All-NEW Sorento in a big way..... The sexy new Sorento is matched aesthetically by this lovely model in all departments, especially the design and look departments. It no longer lack the character and creative initiative that so defined the Japanese and German motor vehicles.

Kuala Lumpur International Motor Shown is back in 2010, after an absent of almost 4 years. While there are many more bread and butter cars on display this year, there is truly an absent of a few marques that  truly defined the Malaysian car market in total.

The European marques like Audi, BMW, Land Rover, Mercedes Benz, VW and Volvo are clearly missing from this edition of KLIMS’10. So is Ford from US. Why? Has the challenging motor vehicles sales environment in the past few years taken its toll on these manufacturers? I doubt so. Or are they collectively trying to send a message to the government and their customers that they are unhappy with the state of motor vehicles well-being in Malaysia?

With all the protectionism mentality shown by our government, I really do not blame them. No wonder most of them chose to invest in Thailand, Indonesia and China. I for one, is very disappointed with their absence in KLIMS’10. Actually it’s not much of a car show without those heavy weight players. I hope they will take part in future motor shows or maybe they should organize one just for the European marques. Otherwise I will have to attend the next Thailand Motor Show. I heard this year their motor show was fabulous. Sigh!
