Bollywood actor John Abraham and retired world rally champion Hannu Mikkola flagged off the third edition of India’s second largest automotive convention — the Mumbai International Motor Show (MIMS) 2013 at the MMRDA Grounds, Bandra Kurla Complex amidst much hype and hoopla.
The presence of glitterati drew huge crowds on the opening day of the event. The duo cut the ribbon and lighted the inauguration lamp to set the exhibition rolling. After the initial formalities, both the guests were led to the pavilion to witness the myriad of big auto brands who will be participating in this year’s show.
The duo also launched a special magazine that will feature handpicked industry updates and car and motorcycle reviews from the year gone by.
Talking about his passion for automobiles and motorcycles at the MIMS this year, actor John Abraham said, "Two things that I would like to do before leaving this word is to take part in the BAJA 1000 off-road race in Switzerland and second ride at the Isle of Man TT, which you could say is a Mecca for any genuine bike sport enthusiast like myself."
The 3rd edition of the Mumbai International Motor Show will feature special performances by the Bajaj GhostRyders stunt team and exciting off-roading action at the Polaris ATV track. Other attractions of the show are special booths for aftermarket car and bike accessories and vehicle custom paint jobs and stickering.
