Exclamation Dackel’s visit to the Frankfurt Auto Show (IAA)…



Sit back while I take you on a (photo)tour of THE absolutely finest car show on the planet! The Frankfurt Auto Show (IAA = Internationale Automobil Ausstellung) is THE car show of car shows. It is hard to comprehend how huge this show is. You will be walking miles at this show. Wear comfy shoes! It is hands down the best car show around. Lucky for you no walking will be needed today. But your scroll finger might be hurting a bit.

Excellent coverage indeed. How long it take you to cover the whole place?

I was blown away how large of an event it was. Didnt even get to see everything in the two days we were there!

I went there twice. First on the press day (13th) with Jason and Southlight. Then a week later (20th) I decided to go back to see the things I missed like the Akrapovic exhaust system for the 1M(and some other cool cars).

Thank you for sharing it with us ... great photographs ! Do you have the dates for 2012? Perhaps planning a ED for that time frame would not be a bad idea

Thanks again,

Rolf-Dieter

Awesome Dack, thanks!

The way Brabus keeps messing with Mercs.....it's a crime.
C63 Black series looks hot though.
