As well as some of the latest rides from around the world, this year’s Australian International Motor Show (AIMS) will also feature an all-Aussie creation, from professional restorers and coachbuilders, Woods & Woods.
The retro-styled custom is being kept under wraps ahead of its debut at October’s AIMS in Sydney.
Father-and-son team, David and Jayson Woods, have been building cars together for over 25 years at their specialist coachbuilding and restoration business in Woy Woy, NSW, but their Motor Show vehicle is reportedly unlike anything they’ve produced before.
Taking inspiration from the smooth lines of coachbuilt automobiles from the early-to-mid 1930's, David and Jayson have added their own unique flair, skill and knowledge into a creation they’re sure will wow motoring enthusiasts and the general public alike.
"We've always wanted to build our own vehicle based upon early European and American designs, but in a way that no-one else has done before," said Jayson Woods. "Whilst it's taken only 12 months to build, I actually first thought this car up when I was at school, so it's really been decades in the making.
"We created this car from scratch and to see the finished product in front of us still takes our breath away. Our ultimate goal is to create a limited run of vehicles based upon this prototype that are able to be driven on the roads."
The debut of the Woods & Woods special continues the tradition of Sydney’s Motor Show supporting Australia’s niche automotive designers.
"We are proud to be exhibiting this vehicle from Woods and Woods and providing them with a platform to showcase their skills," said Russ Tyrie, Show Director. "David and Jayson are an inspiration and an example of when people put their minds to something, how it can be achieved.
"They have designed every single aspect and part for this car and what really sets it apart is that it is like nothing else - its timeless shape will draw some comparisons, but that is where the similarities end. Quite simply, any Australians interested in automotive design, engineering or manufacturing need to see this car."
Visitors to the 2012 Motor Show will also be amongst the first in the world to see new models from both local and international manufacturers, with a record number of unveilings scheduled.
The 2012 Australian International Motor Show will be held at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour from October 19-28, 2012.
