Durban Motor Show 2014 – not to be missed!

Durban Motor Show 20114

From 7 – 9 November 2014, the Durban Motor Show rolls in to the Durban Exhibition Centre. This year, the expo will pay tribute to its roots with an epic showdown between old school beauties and new school high-tech.

Boasting one of the largest selections of dealerships, brand models and makes under one roof; KZN’s proudly South African expo is sure to thrill. If that’s not impressive enough, the aftermarket exhibitors will be. From spray paint products to custom rims and competition winning sound systems, you’ll find it all, and more, at the Durban Motor Show.

Motor-mad visitors will want to get to the Redline Village for an adrenalin fix. Every day, this arena will be crammed full of fresh activities, handpicked for their ability to blast wind through your hair. The annual Show ‘n Shine competition also returns, bigger and better.

South Africa has played host to a number of international motoring shows, but Durban does it better, and they have for over 20 years.

Tickets go on sale in October through Computicket.

The best driving road in South Africa
