Motor1 Main Feature Announced With Jaguar, Porsche, McLaren and Volkswagen Confirmed21 Dec 2017
Over in the Performance Car Show, fast-growing editorial destination Motor1.com has confirmed some of the most jaw-dropping metal will be displayed on its inaugural stand.
Making its UK debut on the feature stand is the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR. The car at the show is a development on last year's series-winning race car. Created for customer sports racing, the GTI TCR is a hardcore track-only weapon, 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.
You won’t want to miss the most powerful road-legal Jaguar ever built, the XE SV Project 8. With an astonishing 592bhp from a thunderous 5.0-litre supercharged V8, no more than 300 Project 8s will be handbuilt. It is sure to be an instant hit with crowds across all four days of the show, having recently been crowned the fastest production-spec saloon car to ever lap the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Alongside the British muscle car you will see 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.
You’ll also be able to get up close to the gorgeous McLaren 570S GT4. Its innovative carbon fibre construction and reworked exterior package, 562bhp twin-turbo V8 and host of cutting-edge technology makes the 570S a jewel within the Sports Series line-up. The GT4-spec aero package includes a large rear wing for increased levels of downforce along with a sculpted front bumper and large front splitter. It also comes equipped with lightweight magnesium alloy wheels and Pirelli slick tyres.
If that’s not enough for all you petrolheads, the feature will also incorporate a live stage, where an exciting lineup of automotive speakers and industry influencers will add further colour to the cars on display across all four days. What’s more, the stand will include a Batak machine, where you'll be able to time yourself against friends and the stars of the show, a PlayStation console and a cafe bar.Find out more at www.performancecarshow.com
