In The Driven Hall visitors will find New Zealand’s premier automotive showcase featuring vehicles and motorcycles you can drive home as well as those you can only dream of owning. This year’s event will feature a pair of the world's latest supercars – the 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast and 2018 Ford GT - alongside a premier lineup of major brands and automotive products. The Ultimate Garage will also host a range of hot rods and classic cars.
It’s not just for petrol-heads either, with Electric Avenue bringing the electric vehicle revolution to Big Boys Toys, with incredible electric vehicles and a chance to test drive the latest EVs & E-Bikes.
Quirky attractions include the 1976 AMC Pacer 'Mirthmobile' from cult 1990's movie – Wayne’s World – loving reproduced here in New Zealand.
The Mammoth Action Arena will feature an action-packed extreme sports show, including World BMX superstar Jed Mildon performing his spectacular array of tricks from an 8m high ramp. And the TCNZ Car Drops see cars being dropped from over 70m on the ground in a spectacular head-on crash.
