South Korea Auto Show

The Korean Auto Show may not have been comparable in size to the SEMA or PRI shows in the states, however the Korean manufactures as well as imports from Japan, United States and Germany did not hold back. With great booths, displays and models (both cars and Korean women) the 2011 Korean Auto Show is the perfect place to get a feel for the OE Automotive market in South Korea.
With an all but complete lack of any aftermarket manufacturing companies present at the show a motorsports enthusiast may feel some disappointment upon arrival. This feeling is however short lived as many manufactures not only brought out new prototypes but also many different factory built race cars. Everything from light weight GM FWD 4cyl powered road race cars to a fully prepared Hyundai Genesis Coupe.  Of course the female models kept the cameras flashing and the Korean men on edge and blushing.
Enjoy the pictures and keep an eye on Korea where a unique (for lack of better terms) Tuner scene is growing by the second. Special thanks to my good friend Youngdae Kim of ProConcept for inviting me to the show.
