2009 Wrap up 2


2009 Wrap up 2

With 2009 nearly over, we have some final events to cover. The first of these is Dubai’s biannual motor show which makes every other modern show look like a rental car lot. Our feature gallery by Himasha Widyaratne and Benjamin Coutan has an impressive amount of supercars that wouldn’t be assembled anywhere else.

Another great event we attended this summer was Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival. It opened the Monterey weekend with a spectacular display of supercars and airplanes. Among these were the Hennessey’s Camaro line, Ferrari Dino Competizione and two Morgans that had 100 years in between them. Supported by the Bonhams auction, Gordon hosts the best jet center party of them all.

As the new motorsport season approaches some teams are on short vacation. Recent releases include the Honda HSV-010 GT, Subaru Legacy B4 GT300 and Ford’s Mustang BOSS 302R. Furthermore, the final supercars from the fourth quarter included the Lotus Exige S Type 72, Mansory Cyrus, Superformance MkIII-R Edition and the FAB Design Panamera from Dubai.
