Kea Kids News reporter Nelson Miller ventured to the Big Boys Toys expo at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds to learn about the huge celebration of car and motoring culture. Watch the video bulletin above.
A Ferrari Enzo was one of the chief attractions for the 21st anniversary edition of the expo. The $5 million vehicle can reach 100 kilometres in three seconds, and has a maximum speed of 350 kilometres.
The ‘hypercar’ is one of only 400 Enzo’s ever produced.

Big Boys Toys also showcased extreme sports stunts including displays from BMX and FMX (freestyle motocross) riders.
Levi Sherwood (two-time X Games and Nitro World Games gold medallist) is retiring from competitive FMX after Saturday. The 28-year-old motocross rider suggested that he was looking pretty old but eight-year-old Nelson completely disagreed.
Kingi Walters also does stunts on his bike. His huge Harley-Davidson motorbike isn’t designed to do tricks like the wheelies he pulls off, but Kingi was inspired by videos showing what overseas drivers could achieve.
Also in this edition of Kea Kids News, nine-year-old Awatea Moeke has gathered over a thousand signatures calling for a law change after her pet ram was killed by a dog.
