The automotive market in China and other Asian countries is absolutely out of control. Yet the controlling Chinese government is anything but. Word is that the Chinese government is contemplating a ban on sexy auto show models. Will this year’s Shanghai Automotive Show fail to be a…bust?
According to a quote from the organization committee: “We are soliciting public option to improve the exhibition. We have not ruled out the possibility of banning auto show girls.”
Of course, no further detail was given by the Chinese committee on the matter, as they are not exactly famous for being forthright with information. Many are wondering if the new possible guidelines are connected to the tragic New Year’s Eve celebrations in Shanghai’s historic district that led to a stampede and 36 deaths. Automotive shows are not known to be gatherings of danger or to attract the unruly types, but it only takes a few to ruin it for the many.
