Auto Africa 2006 - preview

Broadcast date : 29th October 2006

Auto Africa is South Africa’s major motor show, and this year it enters true world-class level.

It opened on Saturday 28th October 2006 at the Nasrec Exhibition Centre near Soweto, and the scope of new model launches was impressive indeed.

From Audi, all eyes were on the new TT…

Over at Alfa, the new Spider was drawing nearly as many drooling glances…

While for those with their eyes firmly on the budget, the new Chana pick-ups from China are bound to appeal to the small businessman or woman.

You have to look twice at the new Mini to spot the differences.

But there’s no mistaking the wow factor of the new M6 convertible.

Possibly the most significant launch of all in terms of the South African motor industry was that of the new Hummer, seen in public for the first time.

Right-hand-drive models will go into production in 2007, while these are destined for export.
A supercharger plus Jaguar’s beautiful new XK equals the even newer XKR. This one is hot off the European launching pad in Paris.

And yes, there are some supercharged attractions at Auto Africa that even non-motorheads will appreciate.

The show is on at Nasrec during the whole of this coming week. So if you’re anywhere near South Africa, let alone Soweto from now until Sunday the fifth of November, make sure you get there.
