I had a chance to check out the Vietnam International Motor Show recently, thanks to Oto Xe May, Vietnam’s leading automotive magazine.
Probably the coolest car at the show was this Samsung-ZF BMW M4 DTM, piloted by Belgian Maxime Martin.
Check out the adjustable gooseneck CF wing!
Carbon brakes, centrelock wheels, chunky tyres.
Carbon aero everywhere! I was a little puzzled by the blocking of the kidney grille.
Side exit exhaust. Note the light coming through under the door, from the front. Airflow comes through the front from the above pic, and gets directed out the sides. Perhaps increases downforce?
Every space utilised for max downforce.
On a completely different note, this Porsche 550 Spyder was one of the classics on display. Gorgeous shape…
… but what I love the most about these cars is the interior. Just check out that red leather and wooden steering wheel!
There was no shortage of dancing and extremely loud music and performances, but to be honest, I didn’t care much for it. Show me the cars instead!
Another classic on display was this BMW isetta, with its tiny, peculiar shape and access.
Yes, that’s the DOOR on the front of the car.
Auto Union was the immediate predecessor of Audi, formed out of the joining of 4 German manufacturers in the 1930s.
Possibly the coolest kids’ toy I’ve ever seen. I’d totally drive this if I fit into it!
Another of the highlights for me, was the gorgeous promo girls accompanying the vehicles. I think Vietnamese society is a bit more open to this compared to Australia!
I think Porsche had the most beautiful ladies!
But this one with the 3 Huracans…
