The 2018 edition of the Performance Car Show, which takes place in the UK city of Birmingham each year, has confirmed an impressive selection of supercars ahead of the event later this month.

Alongside the British car will be the much-hyped Porsche 991.2 GT3, with its 493bhp Cup-derived 4.0-litre engine. With its 9,000rpm redline, class-leading chassis and suspension, the GT3 continues the legacy of the Porsche GT models as unparalleled driver’s cars.

Visitors will also be able to get up close to the beautiful McLaren 570S GT4, boasting innovative carbon fibre construction and reworked exterior package, along with 562bhp twin-turbo V8 and host of cutting-edge technology makes the 570S.

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 event will also feature a live stage, where an impressive line-up of automotive speakers and industry influencers will add further colour to the cars on display.

What’s more, visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of other attractions, including a Batak machine where you'll be able to time yourself against friends,a PlayStation console and a cafe bar.
