Wide bodies and youngtimers are tuning trends at Essen Motor Show.

The performance festival at Messe Essen gathers many of the best vehicles from Europe, from the daily driver to the high-end showcar. Not only wide bodies and youngtimers, but also the inner values will count this year: Ever more owners are refining the interiors of their vehicles as a supplement to the suspensions, the wheel rims and the engine upgrades. The tuning scene is keen on roll bars and cages in particular. The designs ensure motorsports flair and also increase the safety and stiffness of road vehicles.

Also en vogue: bucket seats and sports seats. A good seat adapts to the driver and is important for mastering the car in the event of a sporty driving style. It transfers the movements of the vehicle directly to the driver. Moreover, the material is crucial. Therefore, designers in racing often prefer parts which are made of carbon and are particularly light and strong. Numerous exhibitors at the tuningXperience use carbon elements.
