KUALA LUMPUR: For all those who love wheels, the seventh edition of the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show is bound to amaze your with more than 150 models on display.

The 10-day motor show which ends on Dec 12, is organised by the Malaysian Automotive Association and will feature cars which include concept and eco-friendly cars.

Visitors can see dazzling displays from familiar names such as Proton, Lotus, Perodua, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Isuzu, Naza, Maserati, Chevrolet, Daihatsu, Chery, Mitsubishi, Kia, Hyundai and Peugeot.

Proton is expected to be among the biggest exhibitors and they will display 20 cars at its stand – from its prototype Saga and Exora electric vehicles and Emas hybrid as well as its race-winning Satria Neo Super 2000 rally car.

With the motor show taking on a green spin with the theme “We Care,” there are more eco-friendly cars than on previous editions.

Among the electric cars are the Mitsubishi MiEV Sport Air and Chery M1 EV, while hybrids are the Honda Insight, Honda CR-Z, Toyota FT-HS, Toyota 1/X, Lexus LS 600hL, Mitsubishi PX-MiEV and Hyundai ix-Metro to name a few.

Visitors can also get a chance to win three cars – a Toyota Prius hybrid, two Proton Sagas, and 10 Naza Blitz scooters.

Those who purchase their tickets through AirAsiaRedTix.com website stand a chance to win three special self-drive and ride 3D/2N holiday packages in a Chevrolet Captiva sports utility vehicle or a Harley-Davidson Sportster motorcycle.

KUALA LUMPUR: Motoring en­­thusiasts thronged the four exhibition halls at the Putra World Trade Centre on the first day of the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) 2010.

Amateur photographers had a field day snapping the beautiful models and sleek vehicles they promoted.

Joshua Paul, 22, moved about with his camera ready to capture exciting moments.

“I love cars, I love taking photos. I did not expect the exhibition to be so huge,” he said.

Safura Yaacob, 42, was pleased with the emphasis given to green technology.

“It’s good that this year’s event focuses on green technology as it is important for our future,” she said.

She said her family planned to buy a hybrid car next year as it was cost efficient and environment-friendly.

Many visitors signed up for The Star Motoring’s Snap for Cash contest when they saw The Star Motoring, Daily Chili and Red FM girls making their way through the crowd dressed in bright red sashes, sequined tops and white miniskirts.

“Not only do I stand a chance to win RM5,000, I also get to take pictures with a pretty girl!” said Nik Mohd Muhainan, 33.

The Snap for Cash contest is organised by The Star Motoring, and first, second and third prize winners will win RM5,000, RM3,000 and RM2,000 respectively.

Ten consolation prizes of RM200 each will also be awarded.

Contestants have to give their details and snap a picture with the models using either a digital camera or handphone.

They then need to upload the picture onto Star Motoring website and get their friends to vote from Dec 3 to 26.
