Surat International Auto Expo 2013

TopGear’s special coverage of the 2013 Surat International Auto Expo is the next best thing to being at the event. We bring you details and photographs of every significant car and bike present at the biggest and most glamorous automotive show organized in the diamond city.

This four-day event gave auto enthusiast and potential buyers a chance to rendezvous with their dream machines from manufacturers like Rolls Royce, BMW, Mini, Skoda, Toyota, Hyundai, Harley Davidson, Suzuki and Bajaj. For those who want to go green had more than a couple of options in the electric bike section, while the heavy duty commercial vehicles had a separate display window of their own.

The icing on the cake was TopGear India’s Experience zone where visitors got a change to feast their eyes on beauties like Porsche 911 and Panamera diesel, Audi TT, Mercedes SLK, Volvo XC60, Suzuki Intruder and Hayabusa, Hyosung Aquila and GT250R. The Experience zone also had a dedicated vintage booth that housed the 1963’s Fury Plymouth sedan and half a dozen motorcycles from the yesteryears. And to cap it all, we also had on display a Nissan X-Trail limo, handcrafted by a group of enthusiasts from Jalandhar, Punjab.
