Latest vehicles on display at Capricorn’s Futures Collide II

General Motors presents the all-new pre-production C8 Chevrolet Corvette allowing delegates to get up close and personal with one of the world’s great supercars. With several panels removed, this vehicle gives you a real insight into what’s under the skin as it exposes parts of the subframe, the suspension and even some of the electronics.

Among the key features are the dynamite driving dynamics of the naturally aspirated V8 positioned behind the driver, putting more power to the rear wheels where it matters most. Combined with the lightning-quick shifting of the standard 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, the next-generation damping of the Magnetic Selective Ride Control a4.0 features an innovative suspension fluid containing metal particles that align and become rigid in an instant, reading the road and adapting in as little as 10–15 milliseconds.

In addition to showcasing this fantastic vehicle, General Motors will present all the latest from General Motors Special Vehicles and update the delegates on their ongoing commitment to both the Holden and GMSV car parcs. Central to the conference will be the importance of using GM genuine parts and GM-approved repair methods when returning a vehicle to pre-accident condition. There may even be an update on what is happening in the GM world of motorsport.

Hyundai Australia will showcase the company’s cutting-edge technology with the IONIQ 5 and Nexo FCEV, highlighting its commitment to sustainability as the industry goes through what can only be described as a massive transformation.

The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is a multi-award-winning battery electric vehicle that was “triple-crowned” in the 2022 World Car Awards, in the process, changing the world’s view on electric vehicles. The unique design, technology and experience is the next-generation EV, and the new platform creates the opportunity for a new mobility experience in a world where anything is possible. IONIQ 5 has to be seen to be believed, so don’t miss this opportunity.

The Hyundai Nexo fuel cell electric vehicle is powered by electricity generated by an onboard fuel cell using hydrogen as fuel which reacts with oxygen to form water and electricity that is harnessed to power the vehicle’s motor. Pure water and purified air are the only exhaust emissions. In addition, electric energy recouped during braking is stored in a high-voltage battery – this really is “next-gen”!

So, don’t miss the opportunity to see these great vehicles, network with the presenters and your peers and find out what’s happening in our industry. The Perth event will be held on 16 August 2022 at Optus Stadium, while the main event will be held on the Gold Coast over two days, 19 and 20 August 2022, at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.
