The Australian International Motor Show opens its doors at Sydney's Darling Harbour Exhibition Centre this Friday. Here's a taste of what's to come.

The biggest new car showroom in the country will offer a mouth-watering line-up of fresh and shiny metal, with exciting highlights in store for performance-minded enthusiasts.

Heavy-hitting sedans from Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV) and Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) wave the flag for Aussie muscle, while Mercedes-Benz has built a discreet display stand for its hi-po AMG bahnstormers.

New sports-focused models from Ford, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Opel and Porsche also highlight the best euro offerings.
