Geneva star cars lined up for Fleet Show

SOME of the stars of the Geneva Motor Show will be appearing for the first time in the UK at the Fleet Show 2001. MG Rover and Citroen have joined the line-up of major fleet manufacturers backing the show at its new location of Alexandra Palace, from May 1-3 and they are pulling out all the stops to grab the attention of fleet managers.

MG Rover is putting the finishing touches to the line-up for its stands, but has already revealed that its latest models will be among the line-up on its stand. At Geneva, MG Rover revealed that the new range of saloons, codenamed as X10, X20 and X30 development cars will be officially called ZR for the small X30, ZS for the X20 and ZT for the X10. Core versions of the MG saloons will be further distinguished by the engine's power output, so the MG ZR with the VVC engine producing 160PS will carry the ZR160 identity. An MG sports estate version was also unveiled at the show, codenamed MG X11, which will be called ZT-T.

Already, the Fleet Show is set to be home to a host of UK firsts, including the first UK showing of the new Jaguar X-type and four UK debuts for Mercedes-Benz, such as the new A-class and a long wheelbase version of the car. More than 60 exhibitors including 16 manufacturer marques have now signed up to the show and stand space is filling up fast.

Exhibitors wishing to book stand space should call Stephen Williams on 01733 468322 or 467055. To book tickets log on to www.fleetshow.com or call the hotline on 0870 4294376.
