PERIOD: 14 - 26 September 2017
PLACE: Frankfurt am Main, Germany
In September, Frankfurt becomes the capital of the car, for one of the most anticipated motorshow by fans. IAA 2017, that is the Frankfurt Motor Show, will propose new models, concepts, and incredible previews.
It is an event rich in history and tradition. Just think that the first edition, hosted in Berlin, dates back to the distant 1897! Frankfurt am Main, current location, hosted the Show starting from 1951.
Eleven days full of programs and events. However, the edition of IAA 2017 is likely to be remembered for the long list of defections; and, if they are missing, they will all be foreign car companies. The list currently includes Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Jeep, Peugeot, DS, Nissan, Infiniti and Mitsubishi. It is easy to imagine that it will be the German carmakers, above all, that play the lion's share.
There will, however, be interesting innovations proposed to IAA 2017. Starting, of course, from the supercars. The Mercedes-AMG with its 1000 horses (!!!) will certainly be the most photographed. Great expectations for new productions that will bring the system of driving automation to levels so far unimaginable!
IAA 2017 is, therefore, an appointment not to be missed. And it is also an opportunity to discover the beautiful Frankfurt.
