The Bologna Motor Show (known as the "Salone internazionale dell'auto e della moto di Bologna" in Italian) was an auto show which was scheduled to be held annually in December, in Bologna, Italy.

The editions of 2009 and 2012 were the shortest events in its history, whereas the editions of 2013 and 2015 were not held, due to unfavourable economic conditions initially, and a lack of planning by new organizers and diminished interest by exhibitors, respectively. The edition of 2018 was also cancelled as well, with the format of the show completely changed by 2019.

As its name in Italian suggests, the Bologna Motor Show also plays the role of an annual Motorbike Exhibition, incorporating bicycle exhibitors for the first time in 1994.[2]

Another highlight is its various motorsport competitions, which see the participation of leading drivers and motorbike riders.[3] From 1988 to 1996, the main event was a Formula One single elimination competition, with competitors like Rubens Barrichello, Johnny Herbert, Gabriele Tarquini and Giancarlo Fisichella. From 1997 to 2007, it featured the Euro Formula 3000, with drivers like Thomas Biagi, André Lotterer and Marco Bonanomi.
