The main exhibit, spread along City Walk’s promenade and Al Mustaqbal Street, will be dedicated to a fantastic array of super tuned 4×4, classic and super cars in addition to limited bikes, trikes and monster trucks making it a motor head’s ultimate playground. Modified cars on display will include the Devil 16 which is the fastest car on planet Earth, limited edition 1990 Mercedes EVO 2, Nissan patrol that appeared on the last episode of THE GRAND TOUR, limited edition wide body 86, and much more.
The highlight of the event is ‘Project Overdrive’ as the city’s best auto tuning companies will be compete in a car modification workshop to achieve the best car transformation involving engine, exterior, interior, sound and lights where spectators are promised custom crafted creations and some exciting paint jobs. This will also take place alongside the workshop wherein strategic partners, Top Performance, will completely strip down a classic 1971 Nissan Datson Z240 leaving just its chasse to modify it into something out of this world.
If that wasn’t enough, City Overdrive will be hosting ‘Drift Planet’, an awesome drifting experience with a professional driver to take you on a spin of a lifetime in the parking area next to The Green Planet for AED 100 per person. In addition, there will also be a remote-controlled boat race taking place by the City Walk fountains for visitors to also battle it out on water. Children can participate in all the fun too at the remote-controlled drift tracks set up in the same location.
Moreover, European Mobile Media Association (EMMA) will host a series of electrifying underground parties in the basement parking of the destination. Think Tokyo Drift, roaring engines, open hoods, gorgeously modified cars and a sound system competition which will all be a part of the coolest underground party in town. There will also be a resident DJ on the decks spinning pumping tunes making both parties something to remember.
