One of the latest addition to the indoor car show here in the Netherlands is; The Car catwalk!  The several pre-selected cars drove up the catwalk, giving the spectators chance to see them in full glory. A good time to hear the roar of the engine! From a fully customized Audi ABT to the Dutch Mclaren twins! Well, more or less Trio, because the owners (Herman, Ineke, and their daughters Mandy & Melissa) have tree Mclaren in their garage and brought two of them to Ahoy. They presented the spectators with their 2020 McLaren 600LT Spider and a 2014 McLaren 650S Spider. But they also have a 2016 Mclaren 650S Spider in their collection!

As it became a tradition lately, the ‘star’ cars from several movies were also the center of attention beside the catwalk. From the DeLorean time machine from the Back to the Futures trilogy, to ‘Eleanor’ from “gone in 60 seconds”. And of course what is a tuning show without The Fast & The Furious Toyota Supra, Mazda RX-7 and Mitsubishi Eclipse.
