Autocar Performance Show 2010

18 th – 21 st November,MMRDA Grounds, Mumbai


In 2005, more than 40,000 people congregated at Mumbai’s Nehru Center to visit the first Autocar Performance Show. Since then, every year, the show has been getting bigger and better. In 2009 over 80,000 visitors came to the show. A growing list of reputed exhibitors Audi, Bajaj, BMW, Chevrolet, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar – Land Rover Lamborghini, Mahindra, Mitsubishi, Porsche, Yamaha and TVS prompted the organisers to switch to a larger venue at Mumbai’s MMRDA grounds. The reason for this phenomenal growth is because this is not just another auto show. The Autocar Performance Show is a one-of-a-kind event, dedicated to car and bike enthusiasts in this country. It addresses the growing and yet untapped potential of aficionados eager to transform their Marutis into Maseratis. Performance seekers across the country are waiting for Autocar Performance Show 2010 for their annual adrenalin fix. And it promises a record turnout.


The Autocar Performance Show features the entire gamut of performance products; from the most powerful and expensive cars and bikes in the country to purpose-built single-seater racing cars; from modifications that enhance vehicle performance to accessories that make cars look better, the latest sound systems and multi-media technology.
