THE TRADITIONAL Car Show in Bratislava started on April 8 with a day for journalists. During the show, the visitors will see the 350 various car brands, including several new models that were introduced earlier this year in Geneva.

More than 130 exhibitors from Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Poland, Italy and Slovakia will show their models at the area of more than 40,000 square metres in Bratislava’s Incheba exhibition place, the TASR newswire reported.

The new models will be exhibited alongside vintage cars. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of launching the serial production of Ford Mustang, there will be nine showpieces of five generations of this iconic model.

Part of the exhibition will also be the section showing tuned and customised cars, and the Karavanshow section devoted to more than 20 motor homes and caravans. Visitors who want to buy a car will be allowed to take a test drive, as reported by TASR.

The Car Show will be open by April 13.
