Art Of Speed 2023 Is Going To Be Bigger Than EVER!

Art Of Speed 2023 is coming at the end of July and it is going to be more exciting and larger than ever!

When it comes to car and bike culture in Malaysia, Art Of Speed (AOS) is without a doubt the largest event and the one to really look forward to. AOS this year celebrates its 12th annual show and it aims to bring its biggest and best show yet! Tickets are on sale now at and the first 1,000 ticket buyers online get entered into a special lucky draw. Online ticket holders stand to win a Honda e-DAX motorcycle. At the end of the show, one lucky ticket holder will also walk away with a restored and customised 1979 Toyota Celica from AOS.
