The 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show


Newest BUGATTI - The Epitome of what these car shows are about

US at the Frankfurt Auto Show 2015
The Frankfurt Auto Show is something we missed from our 2011 5 month trip because Air Canada was going on strike and couldn’t guarantee our flight home 6 days later. This time we planned the trip to end with our visit.

One thing is we only had 1 day to attend. This show is monstrous in size and could take you 4 days to do it justice. There were outdoor tracks used to test 4WD vehicles and scooters. I test drove a small 50cc equivalent electric scooter and really enjoyed it. 


As with most things the moment you get home you are onto new things, and this was the case here in the preparation of the blog post. Now with a few moments to spare it’s time to catch up on what we saw.

Rather than our usual style of narrative and some photos this is all about the cars, so I’ll let them do the talking and just identify them if they are new.
