Taking place between the 11th and 14th January 2018 at the NEC in Birmingham alongside Autosport International is the amazing the Performance Car Show


Making its UK debut on the Motor1.com stand is the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR. Created for customer sports racing, the GTI TCR is a hardcore track-only car, with wide body, 18-inch racing wheels and adjustable aluminium rear wing among many high-performance features. Powered by a 2.0-litre race-prepared turbo engine, the GTI TCR is the latest development of Volkswagen’s extensive racing heritage.

The most powerful road legal Jaguar ever built, XE SV Project 8, is set to take pride of place on the Motor1.com feature. Only 300 Project 8s will be built, all by hand with an astonishing 592bhp from a thunderous 5.0-litre supercharged V8.

Alongside the British muscle car is the much-hyped Porsche 991.2 GT3, with its 493bhp Cup-derived 4.0-litre engine. The GT3 continues the legacy of the Porsche GT models as unparalleled driver’s cars. With its wailing 9,000rpm redline, class-leading chassis and suspension, the GT3 has quickly taken the top spot on many a Porsche wish list.

Visitors got up close to the gorgeous McLaren 570S GT4 on the Motor1.com stand. Its carbon fibre construction, 562bhp twin-turbo V8 makes a great addition to the Sports Series. The GT4-spec aero package includes a large rear wing along with a sculpted front bumper and large front splitter. It also comes equipped with lightweight magnesium alloy wheels and Pirelli slick tyres.

URBAN Automotive, the customiser, modifier and dealer of unique vehicles is to reveal its brand new creation at the show. URBAN will be bringing a Velar fitted with their latest styling package, which consists of an all new front bumper, inspired by their renowned V2 Sport and Vogue styling packages, a re-worked rear diffuser, and a set of the exclusive URBAN x Vossen collaboration forged wheels. In true URBAN style, there are sure to be carbon fibre touches throughout.

Liberty Walk is set to unveil a very special Ferrari 458 at the annual Performance Car Show. One of the biggest names in supercar tuning, Liberty Walk EU is also bringing its bespoke Ford Mustang. The 5-litre V8 Mustang boasts a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds and power output of 418 bhp with 2018 specification.

Steeda is one of the most renowned Ford specialists in the world, debuting its stunning Q500 Enforcer at the show.

With 30 years of racing and improving Mustangs, the Q500 Enforcer is the latest in the SSV range. Featuring an array of powertrain, chassis and design upgrades and as a result makes a Mustang you can use every day.
