The Cars of the 2016 Trans Sport Show

The 2016 edition of the Trans Sport Show, the country's longest-running annual motorshow, is happening this weekend at the SMX Convention Center in the SM Mall of Asia complex.

Besides the usual plethora of cars on display, the Trans Sport Show also serves as a venue to market the latest brands and products carried by some of the major automotive aftermarket modification shops in the metro. For this year, the newest one we've spotted is Fifteen52, a brand of wheels that has actually been around since 1996 but only gained traction in the market once Ken Block began using its products in his popular Gymkhana videos, starting with Gymkhana 4 and all the way up to the latest one, Gymkhana 8. Unfortunately, the only Fifteen52 wheel you'll find on display at the show is mounted on the Subaru BRZ at the Wheel Gallery booth since the shop only began carrying the brand recently.

This year's show also happens to be a special one because, for the first time ever, Trans Sport Show organizer Tradeshow International accepted the recent Best of Show winner at the 2016 Manila International Auto Show--the 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500--as an entry. If it bags the 2016 Trans Sport Show Best in Show award, it'll be the first-ever Best of Show winner of the country's two major car shows. 

So if you've got the time, drop by the 2016 Trans Sport Show. Tickets are at P100 each. And check out the gallery below of the some of the cars you'll find at the show.
