DURBAN, kwaZulu-Natal - The Durban Motor Show is back and the 2014 edition due in November will pay homage to 'old school' beauties and 'new-school high-tech'.

The show usually has one of the largest selections of dealers, brand models and makes, under one roof; KZN’s proudly South African expo, it's said, "is sure to thrill". And if that were not enough, the aftermarket exhibitors will be kept busy as the market is huge. From spray-paints to custom rims and competition-winning audio systems.


Organisers says visitors should visit the Redline Village for a daily adrenalin fix. The arena will be crammed with activities, hand-picked for their ability to blast wind through your hair. The annual show-'n-shine competition will also be back, but bigger and better.

Tickets are available through Computicket. Adults R100 / Pensioners R65 / Children under 12: no charge. The show will be at the Durban Exhibition Centre from November 7-9, 2014.

For more information visit the Durban auto show website.
