The Expo Cen­tre in Shar­jah will host the 11th edi­tion of the bian­nual In­ter­na­tional Au­to­mo­bile Show this Wed­nes­day. In a panel at the Expo Cen­tre, the par­tic­i­pat­ing deal­ers dis­cussed the new ve­hi­cle models that will de­but. Ex­hibitors, like Mit­subishi and GM, an­nounced that new models would be shown for the first time at the Expo. Lib­erty Au­to­mo­biles Co. will de­but the long-an­tic­i­pated Ca­maro Fire­breather, which they ex­pect will draw fans from across the UAE to the show.

The mid-size car has been fea­tured in the Hol­ly­wood thriller ' Jinn'. Dun­can Peat, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor at Lib­erty, said they hope to sell 15 cars at the show against the 9 they sold in 2010.

Of­fi­cials from UAE-based deal­er­ships, in­clud­ing BMW, Mit­subishi, Cadil­lac, Chevero­let, Opel, Audi, Merecdez Benz and Nis­san, re­vealed more de­tails about their mar­quees, which they will be dis­play­ing at the show.

Al Habtoor Mo­tors Co. , the dis­trib­u­tors for Mit­subishi, said they would be show­cas­ing new models for the first time but didn't want to give more de­tails, ex­cept to say two of the models are mys­tery cars.

One of th­ese cars will be shown for the first time in the GCC while the sec­ond car, which has been suc­cess­ful in Thai­land was al­ready in the show­rooms, said the agent. "It sold over 30,000 units since March of this year," Mersedeh Mahdi, Gen­eral Man­ager, Mar­ket­ing at Al Habtoor.
