Once you reached the next hall, you were immediately greeted by this behemoth at the Koni booth. These Unimogs are huge!
This hall also hosted a special exhibition showcasing concept cars – like this Mercedes Benz Ener-G-Force Concept…
… or the Giugiaro Parcour. This Lamborghini V10 powered Concept is a kind of crossover in that it mixes the styling of a sportscar with the ground clearance of a SUV.
At the Bilstein booth you could spot a modified BMW 435i – quite impressive, seeing how the 4 series is still so new.
Sitting right next to it was the JP Performance GT-R, which supposedly is pushing over 1000hp.
Going from one beast to another, the guys from Radical Racing were out in force with quite a few cars.
Mercedes Benz displayed a nice fleet as well. Pretty much the first thing that caught my eye was this SLS race car, still with the grime from the 24h race at the Nürburgring on it.
But the real attention grabber in my opinion was this – the CLA 45 AMG Racing Series. A ready made racecar built by AMG which you can easily buy if you have the necessary funds.
This car was originally presented at the IAA in September but it was wearing a different color scheme then. This pure white paintjob really brought out the sharp lines and made it look really aggressive. I’m looking forward to seeing the first few of these things race!
Another interesting Benz was this new A class modified by Inden… I really like the new A class. Compared to the old one, this one finally looks like a car and not like an appliance.
