Cars at Bella (Biler i Bella)

Held every other year since 1977 (with the sole exception of 2011 when the exhibition was cancelled), this year’s edition of Scandinavia’s largest car exhibition, Biler i Bella, is bursting at the seams with supercars and luxury models that are premiering on the Scandinavian market. 

 

But it’s not all about the cars. The motorbikes will be giving their four-wheeled friends a good run for their money, and there will be no end to the accessories on offer – many will no doubt spend hours stocking up on the latest gizmos. 

 

But there’s no denying that the cars are the star act. Prepare to be mesmerised by the novelty of the vehicles being exhibited, which this year include the official launch of the Tesla brand on the Danish market, ZOE, which is Renault’s first electric-only vehicle, IS 300h, which is the new Lexus hybrid, McLaren’s 12C Spider, Lamborghini’s new Gallardo, and the $800,000 Aventador Roadster. 

 

Aston Martin Vanquish 2013

As one of Aston Martin’s most iconic models, the new Vanquish has the right proportions of luxury and muscularity. With the perfect combination of avant-garde design and modern technology, this car is a worthy successor to the first generation model introduced more than a decade ago (as seen in the 2002 Bond film ‘Die Another Day’). Relying on a rejuvenated six-litre V12 engine, it’s in a class of its own.

Jaguar F-Type

There is nothing more thrilling than seeing a heavyweight company, which just yesterday was on the brink of bankruptcy, come out today with a completely new breathtaking model. When that company is one of Britain’s most emblematic luxury car producers, things get all the more interesting, and in the case of its new F-Type, we are talking about a whole new line of models that never existed before. Its competitors, smaller luxury roadsters such as Mercedes SLK or Porsche Boxster, are going to have a hard time keeping up with this new cat.

Porsche Cayman

Talking of Porsches, the new Cayman will be present as well. The often criticised mid-engine coupé is maturing, and as it does so, its design takes it further away from its open-top counterpart, the Boxster. Take a look at a car that some magazines have deemed a better drive than a 911, which is slowly starting to affirm its own identity.

Supercar DNA

Denmark’s most influential car magazine, ‘Bil magasinet’, has put together a feast for the senses of supercar lovers: a half-hour show taking viewers through a 30-year history of some of the most beloved supercars of all time. With editor Mikkel Thomsager as the presenter, you will be able to hear (provided you understand Danish) short descriptions of eight of the most important supercars of the past 30 years as they pass beneath you. The good part is that the driving around will allow even people with no knowledge of Danish to understand the most important part of the presentation: the roaring sounds that the cars make. Ferrari’s F40, once the fastest production car in the world, Honda’s NSX, Japan’s first supercar, GM’s Viper, the American supercar powered by a V10 truck engine, and Denmark’s very own Zenvo ST1 are some of the highlights of the show.

    How to lead Danes IV – Cultural Bypassing

    Many of us Danes, despite being well-educated and well-travelled, often lack experience in navigating cultural differences at work. This can lead to ‘cultural bypassing’, where we believe we are at a level of enlightenment where we no longer are burdened by the risk of making cross-cultural mistakes. As their manager, you can help your Danish colleagues by acknowledging cultural differences in the workplace.
