On April 3-6 2014 from 10AM-10PM, the World Trade Center in Pasay City opened its doors for car buyers and enthusiasts alike for the annual Manila International Auto Show. The event celebrated its 10th year of providing a rich display of automobiles, which included the launching of the Rolls-Royce Wraith. Organized by Worldbex Services International (WSI), tickets were sold at P100 for ABS CBN Foundation Inc. Last year, the event had over 400 car displays, over 500 exhibitors, and more than 96,000 visitors. This year, they aimed higher. More exhibitors, more new cars, more new models, more enthusiasts, more fun! The exhibit had four areas; first was the main area, where both well-established and new car brands displayed their line-up of models. Nine new car models have officially made their debut in the Philippine market, and other new car models were launched by Ford, Subaru, TATA, Volkswagen, Kia, Chery, and other manufacturers.
Among the most noted newly-launched models were the new Subaru Impreza models, and let’s not forget the upcoming Ford Escape 2015, which hopefully becomes available by the end of the year. There were also a series of stunt shows by Russel Swift, a world-renowned, Guinness Record-breaking British precision driver in this area. Next was the motorcycle area. The organizers decided to partner up the Motorcycle Program Participants Association Inc., to include motorcycle models from brands such as Kawasaki, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, and Kymco in their line-up this year.
