HOUSTON, TEXAS (May 22, 2011) Eat, drink, and peruse hot Italian sports cars and motorbikes all under one roof! Come to Italian Expo, being held on June 3-5 at George R. Brown Convention Center, and see your favorite Italian automobiles and motorcycles! Italian motor vehicles are among the most exciting vehicles in the world and they offer a driving experience unlike any other.

The long-anticipated return of FIAT to the U. S. market is here and the new release, Fiat 500, will be on display at Italian Expo. Not only can Expo guests see the Fiat 500 (“Cinquecento” in Italian), but they also have a chance to take one out for a spin! Northside FIAT, one of four Houston dealers chosen from over 600 applicants nationally to represent FIAT in its return to the U.S. market, will be providing Fiat 500s to test drive. Four Fiat 500s will be parked on the sidewalk in front of GRB Convention Center’s Exhibit Hall D, ready to be test driven.

Houston Superbikes will be on hand with Ducati and Aprilia motorcycles. This all Italian motorcycle dealership carries a full line of motorbikes from these legendary Italian marques. Besides the Ducati-Aprilia experience, motorcycle aficionados can also see MV Agusta motorbikes provided by Metric Motorcycles.

Classic car buffs can enjoy seeing classic Italian cars like Lamborghini. Lamborghini Houston, part of Indigo Auto Group, will bring to the Expo the top of the line model of this fascinating luxury car. Synonymous with prestige and performance, Italian Expo guests can appreciate the sleek lines of this classic automobile.

Also, as an added bonus, a vintage collection of Lancia Integrale, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo cars will be on display. And, those with a need for speed, can get a good look at a Ferrari Testa Rossa!

While the Expo gives car and motorcycle enthusiasts a chance to enjoy fine Italian cars and motorbikes, it also features food and wine importers, handcrafted goods, Houston’s finest Italian restaurants, fashion shows, cooking demonstrations, an inter-active kid's area, Italian language classes, and musical and dance performances. Italian Expo will be hosting over 150 companies and vendors from Italy and the U.S. to an anticipated audience of over 21,000 attendees.

Italian Expo tickets are $15 at the door, but are available for pre-sale online at for just $10 until June 2 only. Italian Expo will be open from 4:00 pm – 10:30 pm on Friday, 12:00 pm – 10:30 pm on Saturday, and 12:00 pm – 7:00 pm on Sunday.
