The 2014 edition of the Trans Sport Show, the country’s longest-running car show, will open its doors to visitors at the SMX Convention Center in the SM Mall of Asia complex from May 22 to 25.
"Trans Sport Show has always been a fitting venue for both vintage and modern rides because it aims to draw all generations of car enthusiasts under one roof and offers a four-day experiential and educational event for them," said Sophie delos Santos, president of Tradeshow International, the organizer of the annual event. "We do not only entertain but we also do a lot of information dissemination on automotive history to educate the new breed of car enthusiasts. We feel it is our responsibility to raise the standards in auto shows by sharing valuable knowledge through the show vehicles. Trans Sport Show is much like your favorite car magazine or website in the flesh."
Besides the usual modified custom cars and classic vehicles, the event will also feature what could very well be the first Philippine-made concept sports car by Factor Aurelio Automobile, two prototypes of which will supposedly be on display.
The 2014 Trans Sport Show will also celebrate the anniversaries of three automotive brands. With Maserati celebrating its 100th year, a first- and a third-generation Ghibli will reportedly be on display side-by-side. Joining them will be the all-new model which the Italian carmaker's local distributor, Autostrada Motore, will launch at the venue as well. Dodge is also celebrating its 100th year, and both the old and current Challengers will be present. Lastly, with the Ford Mustang marking its 50th birthday, restored classic Mustangs will be exhibited by Alex Car Restoration and Route 66.
Ticket prices for the 2014 Trans Sport Show are P100 for adults, P80 for senior citizens and P50 for children aged 3 to 10. Children below three years old can get in for free.
