The August 15-26 event will be held at the Quartier Gallery in the EmQuartier and Emporium Gallery in the Emporium.
Suthavadee Sirithanachai, deputy managing director of the Emporium and EmQuartier, said: “Each year we have a variety of different events and the Speed Revolutionaire is in its fifth consecutive year.
"Leading automobile importers are preparing to display their highlight vehicles and launch attractive sales promotions along with the shopping centres.”
Participants include Cavallino Motors Co Ltd, the only official importer of Ferrari in Thailand, Niche Cars Co Ltd, which imports McLaren, Lotus, Pagani, Koenigsegg and Hummer, and AAS Auto Service, the importer of Porsche and Bentley.
Vehicle highlights include the Ferrari Portofino that has just been officially launched in Thailand, priced at Bt201 million. Others include the McLaren 720S at Bt26.5 million, Bentley Continental GT at Bt22.1 million and a limited-edition Porsche 911 Turbo S.
Customers placing orders for vehicles at the event will receive a Platinum M Card and a one-year free parking card from the Emporium and EmQuartier when depositing a reservation fee over Bt500,000.
Suthavadee also said that last year’s event drew a positive response from visitors as well as auto companies taking part.
“The improving economy and sentiment have given us confidence that vehicle sales at this year’s show will be higher than last year. At least 30 vehicles worth Bt500 million could be sold,” she said.
