IAMS 2024: Dutch Automotive Tradition On Present


I can vividly bear in mind visiting ‘AutoRAI’ after I was at school. IAMS, or the Worldwide Amsterdam Motor Present (its precise identify), was held on the RAI Amsterdam Conference Centre and was a must-attend occasion for anybody focused on vehicles. Nevertheless, when large gamers within the Dutch auto business started backing out, the present led to 2016.

In the end, IAMS simply wanted a refresh, and it returned to RAI Amsterdam in 2018 with a brand new focus – supercars, hypercars and high-end customized and tuning firms.

Taking it one step additional, the Worldwide Amsterdam Motor Present organisers contracted RevWorks – a neighborhood automotive way of life and occasions promoter – to host an occasion throughout the occasion referred to as ‘Modified at IAMS’.

Being the sneaker heads they’re, RevWorks added to the anticipated automotive vendor choices – suppose detailing suppliers, scale mannequin retailers and wheel retailers – with an enormous sneaker reseller sales space. Is {that a} first at a automobile present? Regardless, as a sneaker fiend myself, I beloved it.

Imported vehicle taxes within the Netherlands won’t be as excessive as you see in some Southeast Asian international locations, however they’re nonetheless substantial. That stated, if you happen to can afford one thing like a Koenigsegg Jesko Assault within the first place, what’s one other 150.000 Euro (roughly US$167,500) in BPM personal motorcar and motorbike tax?! That takes the entire price of this automobile to three.5 million Euros (roughly US$3.8 million).

I’ve heard that the proprietor of the Jesko Assault needed to additionally buy this unique-spec Rimac Nevera to get his arms on the Koenigsegg, however because the deal was being performed for the Jesko he additionally ordered a second one, this time a good wilder Absolut model.

Like what we noticed on the 100% Auto Reside present final 12 months, Modified at IAMS held a ‘Automotive Catwalk’ with dwell commentary from a presenter and the vehicles’ house owners. To have the ability to hear the vehicles provides one other dimension to the present.
