From 28th November until 6th December 2009, the Essen Motor Show is once again the number one destination for car enthusiasts and motorsport fans. On show will be sporty souped-up production models, valuable classic cars, motor accessories and the largest range of tuning equipment anywhere in the world. There will be special displays of rare vehicles plus lots of live motor racing action. Launched in 1968 as an international exhibition of sports cars and racing cars, the 2009 Essen Motor Show will return to its traditional strengths and focus more on the twin themes of Motor Racing and Tuning. Together with Classic Cars, they are the mainstays of the Motor Show.
