From 3 to 11 December 2022, Messe Essen is the dynamic venue for a wonderful mix of classics and performance. Around 500 exhibitors transform Messe Essen into a paradise for sporty and regularly extensively modified motor vehicles. This year again, the organizers will delight the public with sports cars, tuning & lifestyle, motorsport and classic cars. Welcome to the Essen Motor Show.
The organizers have once again pulled out all the stops for the 54th edition of the Essen Motor Show. The car festival covers nine halls and brings together well-known brands such as BMW, Brabus, Continental, Hankook and the Mercedes Fan World. Of course, the Essen Motor Show will again be the big stage for stars from motorsport and tuning: visitors can expect Mareike Fox, Philipp Kaes, JP Kraemer and the Red Bull Driftbrothers, among others.
Tuning sector strongly represented
In addition to new and old vehicles, there are also a number of sales stands with fan items, car parts, merchandise and accessories at the Autofestival. The tuning sector in particular will present many new products at the Essen Motor Show, such as suspensions, wheels and tires. In addition, various sporty vehicles from the car manufacturers will make the fans' hearts beat faster. Because that's what the emphasis is on: tuning and performance, both with classics and products with a much more recent stature. And let's just say it: the adjustments to the naturally special vehicles sometimes go very far!
Varied offer in nine halls
The product range and program of the Essen Motor Show is spread over a total of nine halls. Halls 1 and 2 are reserved for, among other things, the Classic & Prestige Salon of organizer SIHA. The manufacturers and suppliers present themselves in Hall 3. Hall 4 will be an event area with a BattleKart track where visitors can compete in electric karts. Fans of tuning and lifestyle will get their money's worth in halls 5, 6 and 7. And hall 8 is the home base for motorsport. Last but not least, in the Galeria visitors can also look forward to a wide range of fan articles and accessories for cars.
50 years John Player Special
Race fans will experience a special highlight in Hall 3 with the special show “Fascination Black & Gold – 50 Years of John Player Special”. The exhibit features 15 exclusive Lotus racing team vehicles in the striking black and gold design, which dates back to longtime sponsor John Player Special. At least as striking are the approximately 150 extensively tuned passenger cars in the tuningXperience in Hall 5. Here the spectrum ranges from volume models to show cars, with an emphasis on classic vehicles and models built in Germany.
