2014 Sharjah Motor Show – the rundown

Posted on Nov 27, 2014 by

It’s that time of year when motoring aficionados from the neighbouring emirates make their pilgrimage to the bustling streets of Sharjah to catch a glimpse of the annual Motor Show. Running until the 29th of November, this year’s iteration of the show sees manufacturers from China, Japan, America, and Germany among others, bring their prized possessions to the floor.

Divided into two halls, the sees mildly refreshed models such as the Mitsubishi Lancer sporting an artificial air vent along the fender; debuts of new models such as the beautiful Mercedes AMG GT, and an indoor obstacle course set up by Jeep. If you don’t fancy spending a significant part of your weekend in traffic getting to the show, here’s a virtual coverage for you to enjoy right from your warm seat.

An all black Nissan Patrol which you’ve probably already guessed is called the Black Edition, shared the spot light at the brand’s stand with the GT-R – a supercar that touches the 100 km/h marker in under 3 seconds!

The Rolls-Royce Ghost looking as elegant as ever, embellished one corner of the hall alongside the Phantom Drophead Coupe. And just in case that wasn’t enough, Brabus attracted a fair number of people with the behemoth 700 model.

Debuts saw the AED 730,000 Mercedes-AMG GT S take its cover off for the first time in the Middle East, and the BMW X6 flaunt its redesigned lights.

But there was no stopping people from flocking to the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT. Even the Men in Green couldn’t resist…

And look, the Chinese manufacturers at the show actually had something unique on display (a grille full of T’s!)
