Concours d’Elegance in Kuwait

This is one of the premiere car events around the world and it was taking place in Marina Cresent over this weekend. I saw the classic cars during the launch on Wednesday but I didn’t have a camera with me at the time, so I decided to take pictures of the machines on the other side. The variety of the machines was fantastic but I didn’t expect to see so many modern cars with them, but I was enjoying it, and across the parking lot were the beautiful muscle cars.

There was a beautiful original BMW M1 parked next to the fountain, now that was a car I wasn’t expecting to see and a few other beautiful machines. What surprised me was the presence of the Alpha Romeo RC8, which is basically all Ferrari with an Alpha Romeo body, I think it even had temporary plates on it. Marina Cresent was packed you couldn’t find a place to sit but we headed to PQ grab a bite to eat and enjoy the cars.

GulfRun Car Show @ Marina Cresent

That is honestly one of the best car shows I have seen in a long time in Kuwait. A huge turnout from the first day, lots of people, family, and kids showed up and enjoyed the show. The booths from Tristar Motorcycles, Al Fahad Travel, Kromozone, Ford, Mitsubishi, and My Toy World were there, and then the other sponsors for GulfRun such Agility, Huper Optic, Magic, Slider Station, and EggHead Electronics were at the event as well.

There were lots of interesting cars, and they look good with all the stickers. Then there was a few surprises such as the Desmosedici RR which is made in extremely limited production, a Moto GP motorcycle that you can take home. I think that GulfRun has made a good impression on lots of people and got them very interested in this event. Lots of families came and I was really surprised, people kept coming up to me who I wasn’t expecting to see and there was lots of family to say hello to. The best part is all the photography enthusiasts who showed up to the event.

The organization of the car show was very well done, lots of smiling faces and the music was blasting a little too much but it attracted people to the cars. Hopefully it will be bigger and better next year. I’m curious to see how its going to be topped next year.
