Whilst the Brussels 2015 Auto Saloon may well be over, the first auto event of the year has been hailed a success by many of the world’s most dedicated auto enthusiasts. Particularly the Dream Cars section was spell bounding, as the world’s biggest luxury automotive marquees sent their most enthralling mascots. Here’s the wrap up of what we found to be the most exciting.
The Mercedes Benz marquee had the largest presence at the expo and if they were seeking to make an impact on their audience, it was certainly achieved with the SLS GT, the C63 AMG Estate and the S65 AMG Coupé. Arguably the highlight of their contribution was the CLA 45 AMG Shooting Brake. A snug coupé with a taut roof line that spills from the top running along the rear, forming a pronounced curve tail end. The frameless doors blend harmoniously into the design of the sides when closed. Powered by the famous (or perhaps infamous?) AMG engine, you know this coupé is going to be powerfully fast. What is all the more fascinating is that with its mere 2 liter engine it still produces an output of 360 hp. Well, even Thomas “the useful little engine” would have been put to bed by this creature of the road.
The Rolls-Royce marquee was present in all its prominent glory. Aristocratic and supremely elegant, the Rolls Royce never goes unnoticed. The masterpiece was the RR Wraith, presented in gloss black paint and fitted with black and silver designed alloy wheels, the result was striking to the eye. As the ultimate luxury vehicle Rolls Royce did well to progress its image of elegance and refinement, with the presence of the Ghost Series II and the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé. The Wraith, however, displays a strong element of renewal; be it a sense of purpose and precision, or its more modern contemporary feel, it gives out an overall willingness to be daring.
The luxury Automotive House of Audi used the Brussels Auto Saloon as the opportunity to première their new A1, Q3 and Q7 to Europe. The effect was astounding, as particularly the Audi Q7 captured our attention as a large size SUV with an exceptionally comfortable interior, and more technological capabilities than what you could possibly poke a stick at. Still, the eye catcher was the radiant blue RS4 Avant. Love or hate the colour, it is a superb looking car, possessing heaps of power.
With the glitter of the cars and the girls being nothing short of fabulous hosts, the Brussels Auto Saloon was thoroughly enjoyed by its visitors. When the event rolls around next year make sure you get there aboard a luxury car hire in Europe. Rent a Jaguar F type, an Audi R8 or a BMW X5 M, because the best thing about driving you luxury rental car to the Brussels Auto Saloon is that she’s the beauty you get to take home afterwards.
