The third edition of the Custom Show Emirates saw ADNEC filled with some of the best custom cars from across the UAE and Middle East. Last year blew us away, and this year we were once again left asking where do all these custom cars hide!?
There was a huge increase in footfall on the Friday compared to last year, highlighting the growth of the show which in turn saw a huge increase in the quality of cars on display. With it being the show to build a car for, it was something which we tried our hand at this year.
On that note Khul Racing had an impressive display of Skylines sat on their stand. Not quite to my taste (I don’t personally get the artwork on the bonnet or the details on the side skirts) however, I can however relate to the amount of skill that goes into it, and they also do know how to nail the stance game.
The most interesting part though, is that they are offering very reasonable prices on fully converted Skylines with all the correct paper work. All of which come direct from Japan. They will source you a base model car, converted it to LHD (conversion is super clean, hand brake is round the correct way) after which its shipped to you with. Prices start at AED 97,000 for a R32!
When looking back at last year’s show there was a clear increase in traffic over the three days and we can understand why. With the Custom Show Emirates being THE show to be at, it attracts attention from not just the UAE but all across the Middle East. And for the last two years the level of cars has been second to none. Something which we have been lacking over the past five years in the UAE. With competitors looking at being the best we can only see the standards getting higher. We are certain people have already started planning their builds for next year after a very expiring show.
We would like to thank everyone that spent the time to come and say hello to us. I was personally shocked how many people were following the Moonbeem build. Many of you came and said hi which reminded us why we do this. We are already looking forward to next year’s show which will undoubtedly be bigger and better. In the meantime we are off to find another project, that’s after we have got some sleep!
