Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) 2013 Preview




I attended the media preview yesterday and all the photos in this post and in my albums on Facebook are shot with the recently launched Sony NEX – 5T (more info at ).

With the theme “Efficiency in Motion”, KLIMS 2013 is the 8th edition (after 1980, 1984, 1998, 2000, 2003, 2006, 2010 & 2013), is 30,000 square meters in size and features 78 exhibitors. KLIMS 2013 is organized by the Malaysian Automotive Association and is managed by Interexpo (M) Sdn Bhd.
