Automotor 2013


Automotor is an annual car exhibition that’s held in Tel Aviv Convention Center, usually during Passover vacation.

Map of the area:

Many people complain that as years passed the exhibition started to resemble to car saloon and ticket prices sky rocked. Thus, there were many disappointments and some stopped visiting Automotor. And I’m one of those. What made me change my mind in this year is that beside regular exhibition there is “cars from movies” section.

Interesting new design by Renault, Twizy:

The Renault Twizy is a battery-powered 2 seat electric city car designed and marketed by Renault and manufactured entirely in Valladolid, Spain. Legally classified in Europe as a heavy quadricycle (light quadricycle for the lower-powered Urban 45 model), the Twizy has a maximum range of 100 km (62 mi).

Land Rover from earlier James Bond movies:

They also had shows by professional drivers, but it was poorly organized. They closed a small area for these shows, and there were no arenas, so basically one row of standing people saw it well, the second raw saw it ok and that’s it. We didn’t come in advance and didn’t want to wait another hour or two for the next show thus I can’t tell/show how good it was.
That’s all for today and I’ll see you in future travels!

Stay Tuned!
