Concept cars take center stage at the Qatar Motor Show.

New Delhi, Jan. 19 -- The First International Edition of the Qatar Motor Show scheduled from 26 to 29 January 2011 will be an important showcase for eight Italian car designers who will exhibit their creations in a 'collective' of Italian-made creations promoted in collaboration with the Gruppo Carrozzieri Autovetture (Car Coachbuilders) of ANFIA -Italian Association of the Automotive Industry .

Organized by Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) in collaboration with Events and GL events and sponsored by HE Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabor Al Thani, Qatar's Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, the Qatar Motor Show will present concept cars, super cars, prototypes and special bodies on display for the first time in a country which is one of the most important markets in the world for luxury and sports cars and incredible one-offs.

Stars of the show will be the cars conceived, designed and built by a group of Italian companies which represent excellence in the sector such as Autostudi, Bertone, Castagna, Fioravanti, Pininfarina, Prototipo, Salt, Spada and Touring Superleggera. There will be many new proposals including some previews.

Autostudi from Turin, author of particularly innovative concept cars, will be presenting the world preview of restyling of the C-Sport at the Qatar Motor Show 2011. The C-Sport Qatar is an innovative sports car of the highest level with clean sinuous lines, projecting itself as a luxury toy-car. The car is young and dynamic with a spirited soul - ready to promise surprising performance.

"We decided to take part with our Italian designer colleagues at the Qatar Motor Show," says Carlo Angiono, Managing Director of Autostudi. "We look forward to encounter a new market in which we can express the creativity of Autostudi in luxury cars and, why not, be the ones to build the next one-off for the Qatar clientele."

Bertone, founded in 1912, one of the oldest and most prestigious Italian firms in the car sector, will be presenting the Bertone Pandion at the Qatar Motor Show - a futuristic coupe dedicated to the 100 years of Alfa Romeo fitted with a mighty heart (an 8-cylinder motor, 4.2 litre and 444 HP).

Vincenzo Ruocco, Managing Director Prototipo S.p.A. sustains: "The high-performance automobile market in the Arab Emirates, and particularly in Qatar, has by now assumed a highly significant dimension and importance. Qatar Motorshow is an event where the public of enthusiasts can satisfy their curiosity and experience stimulating initiatives. It seemed to us to be the first truly winning combination for the presentation of our initiative, because owners of dream cars and/or high-performance autos are one of the potential targets most likely interested in the extraordinary features that NardE formula has to offer."The First International Edition of the Qatar Motor Show, held at the Doha Exhibitions Center from 26 -29 January 2011, promises to be an extraordinary auto show that will thrill spectators from around the world. The 1st Middle East Automotive Summit will take place before the official inauguration on January 26, and will feature executives from top international automotive manufacturers, debating the future of the automobile. More information regarding the 1st Middle East Automotive Summit can be found in the dedicated section on the new website. The exhibition will also offer a host of outdoor activities for visitors, including test drive sessions.
