It was another successful year for the Malaysian Prime Minister Culture of custom and counterculture event at Art Of Speed 2022 (AOS) festival held at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park, Serdang (MAEPS) over the weekend.
AOS is making a big comeback for its 10th anniversary celebration. In the AOS tradition, the event was joined by international guests, whom car and motorcycle enthusiasts have the chance to meet every year.
The Art of Speed Invitational Bike Build-Off 2022 once again featured 7 talented builders from across Malaysia competing for a cash prize of RM10,000 (jury selection) and a cash prize of RM5,000.00 RM (audience choice).
The Jury’s Choice winner went to SKATECTURE from Kuching, Sarawak with builders Mohammad Nasir Morni, Umar Sulaiman, Hafiq Kamaluddin, Amin Ridzuan and Hafiz Yem, while the People’s Choice went to MOTO BURUK GARAGE from Penang with builder Mohamad Aidzam Alias.
Hot Wheels has always had a big presence at Art Of Speed and for AOS 2022 they wowed the crowd with a life-size Bone Shaker Monster Truck.
Visitors to AOS 2022 also signed up for the opportunity to have their car professionally photographed with a full-size Hot Wheels blister-packed backdrop.
Hall C was aligned with NoEqual.co’s NEAT Fest with its curated “Garage Life” exhibit, alongside the return of Hail Vintage with a display of vintage workwear and even more specialty vendors from previous AOS events.
Also featured in this year’s Hail Vintage was the Jubilee Antique Café, which served exquisite flavors of Kelantan’s kopitiam food.
Recently introduced for AOS 2022, an extension of Hall D has become the exhibition center for Off The Grid camping and outdoor lifestyle.
This year’s Kustom & Koffee Talk was hosted by Qhalis Najmi of NoEqual.co and featured foreign panelists Scott Johnson of Mama Tried Motorcycle Show and Warren Heir Jr. of Flat Out Friday. The forum discussed the latest trends in the bicycle and automotive industries.
Back with AOS 2022, the hugely popular Sound Circus Festival in the outdoor section of MAEPS, with a lineup featuring Hujan as the main track alongside bands such as Sekumpulan Orang Gila, Flop Poppy, SweetAss, Iqbal M., Balok People and much more.
Sunday’s raffle saw not one, but TWO lucky winners go home with a big prize at AOS 2022. The first lucky winner of the Vespa EV Classic – fully restored by Kluk Klek Soul and converted to EV by Elders Elettrico – was awarded to Muhammad Khairul Anas Bin Rohani of Parit Buntar, Perak.
The second lucky winner of the Hausboom Custom Vespa EV Classic was awarded to Muhammad Khairul Izwan bin Muhammadsaufi of Sg. Buloh, Selangor.
The event also witnessed a signing ceremony for a Memorandum of Understanding between Elders Elettrico and 405 Industries as technology partners for electric vehicle conversion. The partnership aims to expand the electric vehicle conversion market in Malaysia and work with the government on the development of regulatory issues regarding electric vehicle conversions.
The winners of the Best of Show motorcycle and automobile categories will win packages to the 30th MOONEYES Yokohama Hotrod and Custom Show next December as guests of honor.
