Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2013 - Part 1

This year, the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS '13) is back with the tagline, Efficiency in Motion. It was supposed to be a biannual event, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the show was postponed to this year. The overall show focuses onto energy-efficient vehicles and concepts, comprised of hybrid, full electric and et cetera. As many big/common players in the industry did not show up, heck even Proton itself, many spaces were filled by aftermarket companies and classic cars showcase. I am not as enthusiast as I did in the past KLIMS 2010 (Part 1 | Part 2), thus expect less pictures.

Probably the gem of the show; the Lexus LFA.

Toyota FUN-VII (Vehicle Interactive Internet)

The debut of Infiniti into Malaysian motor show; Infiniti Red Bull Racing RB9
