PRESS RELEASE
19 SEPTEMBER 2017

Hong Kong’s premier motor celebration is set to return for its second year as Sino Group today announces that it will be hosting the second edition of Gold Coast Motor Festival at the picturesque Hong Kong Gold Coast on 10-12 November 2017.

‘We are delighted that Gold Coast Motor Festival is rapidly establishing itself as one of the most important motoring events on Asia’s motoring calendar. Following the well-received inaugural event in 2016, this year’s festival promises to deliver another exciting experience for motoring aficionados and festival-goers. It holds special meaning as we are also celebrating the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR this year,’ says Mr Eugene Leung, General Manager, Gold Coast Motor Festival.

‘The scenic Hong Kong Gold Coast is a perfect venue for this festival for all, which is gaining widespread international recognition and acclaim, bringing significant benefits to the motor industry, to tourism and to the local Hong Kong community. It is a mega event we can all look forward to,’ remarks Mr Leung.

In partnership with leading car manufacturers and discerning collectors, this year’s festival will showcase over 80 cars, from prized classic and collector cars to some of the most sought-after super and hypercars. The prestigious collection represents the very best examples of their types, in terms of history, craftsmanship, power and technology.

Amongst the extensive exhibits on show this year, from the prized classic collection, visitors will see an iconic Ferrari 250 GT/E, first introduced at the Le Mans 24-hour race in 1960; a Toyota 2000GT, famed as the first ‘supercar’ out of Japan and a 1926 Bentley 3 litre, one of the oldest registered cars in Hong Kong.

This year’s Festival also features a remarkable collection of exclusive super and hypercars, including the Pagani Zonda Fantasma Evo, which is a one-off special edition; a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, one of twenty ever produced; a McLaren P1GTR and the iconic McLaren F1. With the support of leading car manufacturers, we shall also be displaying some of their most sought-after current offerings, including the Bugatti Chiron, which will make its first Hong Kong public debut.


In the hybrid category, an acclaimed ‘role model’ for plug-in hybrids is the Volkswagen XL1, launched in 2013 with just 250 cars ever produced. This 2-seater car features a distinctive dolphin-shaped mid-engine and a gullwing door. The car’s overall weight is merely 795 kg, thanks to its carbon-fibre unit frame, similar to that of the McLaren P1.


The festival also provides a unique opportunity to learn more about the very latest motoring innovations and trends. It features a diverse range of educational talks and interactive events with celebrated motorsports figures, automotive leaders, experts and designers ready to educate and inspire everyone from experienced enthusiasts to young car fans.

Concours d’Elegance

The Gold Coast Motor Festival Concours d’Elegance will continue to be one of the highlights for car collectors this year with a wide array of categories. The distinguished judging panel is led by Chief Judge, Mr Joseph Fung; other illustrious judges from Hong Kong include Mr Alain Li, Mr Lawrence Yu, Mr Frank Yu, Mr James Ogilvy-Stuart and Mr Douglas Young. We are also delighted to welcome three world-renowned visiting judges including Mr Adolfo Orsi Jr from Italy, HH Prince Rana Manvendra from India and Mr Philip Rathgen from Switzerland.
