Fleet of Insane-Looking Custom Cars Take to the Desert for Riyadh Car Show

Starting November 21, one day before the start of the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, the city of Riyadh in Saudi Arabia will become the place to be for tuners and custom car builders. It is then when the first-ever Riyadh Car Show opens its gates, hoping to draw in over 250,000 people and treat them with the finest the industry has to offer.

According to the organizers, there will be some 450 cars on the floor of the event, fighting for the attention of the visitors. And by the looks of it, production vehicles will have a hard time keeping pace with the invasion of race cars and hot rods on the scene of the Janadriyah Cultural and Festival Grounds.

The six day event will be an Arabian party of gigantic proportions, with all the people who are somebody in car tuning expecting to attend, led by the legendary Chip Foose and this year’s SEMA sensation Ringbrothers.

Their builds, along with many others, will most likely be the stars of the event, but will also occupy the center stage at the dedicated auction now being put together.

During the sale, which will take place on November 23, a great deal of cars will go under the hammer, on the backdrop of an impressive display of “Saudi culture.”

Among the most coveted custom cars to go under the hammer are the 1957 Chevrolet One-Fifty Imagine that rocked the show at the 2018 SEMA, the 1958 Lincoln Continental Convertible Maybellene, powered by a gigantic 9.8-liter Falconer V12 engine, and the 1932 Ford P-32 highboy roadster put together by Chip Foose himself.

The organizers of the show promise the cars they said will be taking part (full list available in the press release section below) are not the only ones. Custom builders and tuners will also bring to Riyadh “some that have yet to be seen by the public.”
