Sri Lanka is home to a fantastic collection of classic cars, many of them British icons of yesteryear motoring, and there’s nothing their proud owners like better than showing them off.
On January 27 they will get the perfect opportunity at the three-day Ceylon Motor Show at the BMICH in Colombo, itself a showcase of the best of the latest modern cars to be found in Sri Lanka.
Says ColomboPage: “Sri Lankan motor vehicle enthusiasts are in for a treat with the upcoming launch of the Ceylon Motor Show 2017 sponsored by Sri Lanka Insurance Motor Plus, the island’s largest platform for cutting edge and classic motor vehicles.
“Serving as the island’s single largest showcase for top-of-the-line international automotive brands, the Ceylon Motor Show 2017 will feature a diverse range of cutting edge cars, SUVs, jeeps, motorbikes, vans and commercial vehicles in addition to a pristine selection of timeless Classic Cars that promise to once again be a popular fixture at this year’s show.”
The show is jointly organized by The Classic Car Club of Ceylon (CCCC) and The Ceylon Motor Traders Association and in partnership with Sri Lanka Insurance Motor Plus, and is the only one of its kind in Sri Lanka to draw mass support and participation from across the automotive industry.
From sports cars to luxury sedans to powerful jeeps and SUVs, this year’s show is anticipated to draw even larger and more enthusiastic crowds than its previous shows.
Says CCCC President Mrs Ramani Ponnambalam: “Our club has been extremely active in recent years and most recently celebrated its silver jubilee. As such, we hope to make an even greater contribution to the growing success of the Ceylon Motor Show by showcasing over 120 of Sri Lanka’s most rare and sought after classic cars, sourced from England, America, Germany, Italy, France and even Japan. “
