The 2008 Australian International Motor Show this October will feature an innovative new attraction called Supercar Central.

Supercar Central is a new concept for Australian motor shows which will bring together some of the best low-volume hand-crafted exotics the automotive world has to offer.

"Supercar Central will be a highlight of a very strong Australian motor show in 2008," said the chief executive of the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries, Andrew McKellar.

"The display will provide a unique opportunity to enjoy rarely sighted cars in one place at one time."

Initial exhibits already confirmed for Supercar Central are the $1.5 million Pagani Zonda Roadster from Italy, the hand-built Morgan Aero 8 from Britain and the Australian-designed Elfin MS8 Streamliner.

The 2008 Australian International Motor Show is being strongly supported by Australia's most popular car brands, many of which have increased their commitment to the show by booking more floor space.

Mr McKellar said the motor vehicle brands attending this year's show represent more than 90 per cent of Australian car market sales.

"Increased space allocation for some exhibitors will give them the best ever opportunity to display new models and concepts in an even more attractive fashion," Mr McKellar said.

"The result will be a better looking and even more dynamic motor show."
Last year's motor show in Sydney attracted 245,000 people, making it Australia's largest automotive expo and one of the top 10 motor shows in the world.

The 2008 Australian International Motor Show will be held at the Sydney Exhibition Centre at Darling Harbour from October 9 to 19.
