Exclamation Dackel’s Essen Motor Show pics…

Essen Motor Show 2010


Last Saturday, I went to the Essen Motor Show. This is Europe version of SEMA minus the Las Vegas show girls. lol The tuning show is always interesting. Kind of one part tuned cars, one part old cars and one part flea market.

The show runs until this Sunday in case anyone wants to go. I would suggest to drive up the night before(like I did) and see the show all fresh. Because you will walk your butt off there! The Messe (convention center) uses all twelve halls – so you will spend all day there. What I like about the shows at Essen is that there is always something for everyone here. In every corner you find something cool to drool over!

Ok, onto my photos…


Enjoy!

Great photographs of some beautiful looking girls... err, cars, I meant beautiful looking CARS.

Especially the CLK-GTR. Seems to look a lot better than it did when it was doing back flips at Le Mans.

Thanks for sharing the photographs, great to see.

Thanks guys. I am glad you all enjoyed my (many) photos. It was a lot of work posting all of those links! lol In the future I will try to limit my photo essays. Essen Motor Show was kind of like my BMW Welt & Museum photos/thread... it is just so hard to decide on what to post and what not to post. So I just posted most everything I shot.

Yes... the mädchen (girls) gives a whole new meaning to the phrase: "Made in Germany"!

Living in Germany I have been very fortunate to see rare things. I remember back in 1998 visiting the AMG werk in Affalterbach. It is located on the outskirts of Stuttgart area. While touring the AMG factory I got to see one of the CLK-GTR's being fueled up and taken out on a "road test' via the local autobahn (A81). The test driver said they can easy hit 340 kph in the "street" version. I will never forget how that engine sounded on startup (cold) and how cool that LeMans monster looked pulling away from the AMG factory.

Btw... while I was touring the AMG factory I also saw something cool. A one off S-class station wagon based on the old (1998 M.Y.) S-class coupe. It was a V12, S-class wagon built for some shiek in Saudi. I think that is also where almost all of the CLK-GTR's went. I remember our factory tour guide was very upset I saw and asked about that S-class s/w! lol

I remember them saying that FIA rules limit the price of the GTR "street car" but... only the first one sold! The first one is one of the beatup "test mules" the rest of the production GTR's were sold for much, much more than the 1.5 Million marks that the FIA rules stated. I think it was more like 2.6 Million marks IF I remember correctly!
