Further novelties feature the Velar by Land Rover and the Jaguar F-pace.

The show is accompanied by a rich programme. Visitors can see a unique collection of all the variants of the Fiat 500 and lovers of vintage cars can admire more than 12 exhibited vintage cars including theTatra 75 cabrio from 1935. The Tuning Show is exhibiting more than 130 tuned cars and stuntmen will also demonstrate their skills at the fair.
