For the upcoming 2018 Performance Car Show by Motor1.com, the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 and Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR are set to share the limelight at the dedicated exhibition for Performance cars.

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.

XE SV Project 8: Fastest road legal Jaguar ever

The most powerful road legal Jaguar ever built, XE SV Project 8, is set to take pride of place at the show. No more than 300 Project 8s will be handbuilt, all with an astonishing 592bhp from a thunderous 5.0-liter supercharged V8. 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 car to ever lap the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife.

Alongside the British muscle car is the much-hyped Porsche 991.2 GT3, with its 493bhp Cup-derived 4.0-liter engine. The car has 9,000 rpm redline, and class-leading chassis and suspension.

 

 

McLaren 570S GT4

Visitors will also be able to get up close to the gorgeous McLaren 570S GT4 which lines up on the feature in Hall 19. Its innovative carbon fiber 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.

The 2018 Performance car show is set to take place at the NEC center in Birmingham from 11-14 January 2018.  The Performance car show takes place alongside Autosport International, also at the NEC in Birmingham.
