Beaulieu Supercar Weekend will be rumbling with the roar of powerful supercars, as over 750 of these dream machines go on show for a two-day motoring spectacular in the grounds of the National Motor Museum on August 4th and 5th.
Sponsored by insurance specialists A-Plan and packed with awesome cars and special features, Beaulieu Supercar Weekend is the unmissable supercar celebration of the summer for petrol-heads.
Get set for action-packed demonstration runs twice daily, as high performance machines of the road and track are put through their paces on Beaulieu’s Chestnut Avenue – demonstrating their impressive acceleration and braking capabilities. New for 2018 is a giant screen on the Events Arena, with a grandstand view of the action as it’s broadcast live.
Battle of the Brands will be back, showcasing the latest and best new cars that money can buy. See jaw-dropping machines from Germany, Italy, Japan and Great Britain parked up on opposing sides of Beaulieu’s giant globe and choose your favourite.
Then head to the lawns of Palace House, the ancestral home of the Montagu family, for a blast from the past as classic performance cars showcases the best machines from yesteryear. Look out for 1960s cars including the original Ford GT40, a Le Mans-winning racing design, the iconic Lamborghini Muira, landmark Porsche 356 and limited edition Toyota 2000GT.
Families will love the adrenalin-fuelled excitement of the supercar sound-off, which pits the sportiest supercars against each other in a contest to discover which has the best sounding engine. The winner, who rouses the loudest cheer from spectators and scores highest on the decibel meter, will receive a celebratory trophy.
In the Super SUV Secret Garden see some of the greatest all-terrain performance vehicles ever built. Then on the manufacturers’ stands, see Tesla’s electric cars returning to Beaulieu Supercar Weekend with its latest models and show regular Ford pleasing enthusiasts with its latest Ford GT and Mustang.
Get up close to hundreds of supercars parked for event-goers to see and admire in the Beaulieu events fields. Look out for club stands, including the TVR Car Club as it returns with 50 of these British-built bruisers including the brand new Griffith, following the rebirth of the legendary TVR marque.
