Still showcasing the ultimate expression of automotive customization and modification, the 14th Manila Auto Salon and 27th SportTruckShow 2022 was recently held at the SMX Convention Center.

Organized by Ms. Sophie Delos Santos of Tradeshow International, Inc., in partnership with Motul Philippines distributor Infiniteserv International, this year’s exciting show saw a huge turnout that holds for both the number of vehicles that entered and the number of showgoers that trooped to see the show.

As Ms. Sophie sums up this year’s successful event, “The recently concluded Manila Auto Salon and Sport Truck Show was the best to date in so many aspects – the quality of entries, new products launched, quality and number of attendees and most of all the positive feedback we have been receiving from both local and international fans.”

She adds,  “I can safely say that we have successfully attained an ideal level of normalcy in car show organizing – post-pandemic. It is indeed a relief that we are all back in business — a truly positive note for the Philippine automotive aftermarket industry.”

Strictly Custom

The Manila Auto Salon and Sport Truck Show is all about custom vehicle customization and modification. At this event, all the best tuner shops take part to showcase their latest builds, including supercars, hypercars, tuner cars, and, of course, off-road and outdoor lifestyle rigs.

Aside from the show-stopping vehicles, showgoers can also look around and shop for the latest automotive accessories, parts, and products from the leading aftermarket brands with numerous booths to check out. During the 4-day event, live demos and other promotional events were held, making it a must-see for any car enthusiast.

As expected, the exciting show successfully brought together some of the Philippines’ finest builds, from tuners, exotic supercars, sport utility vehicles, and rugged 4×4 rigs, under one roof. Whether it’s a high horsepower twin turbo engine setup or an elaborate off-road suspension, the show certainly had a lot to offer for every type of gearhead. What’s more, the quality of the entries continues to improve and surprise as they come up with unique booth designs and how they present their builds.
