STUNNING selections of cars were on display at the UK’s newest car event, The Fast Car Festival, with the spectacular Aston Martin Vulcan wowing the 6,000-strong crowd.
The Vulcan, an 800bhp purpose-built race car, stole the show over the weekend. With a price tag of £2 million and one of only 24 ever made, it is rightly regarded as one of the world’s most exclusive cars.
Former F1 driver and Fifth Gear presenter, Tiff Needell, made a guest appearance and showed off his skills behind the wheel, giving a few lucky visitors passenger laps in Central Lotus’ Evora 400.
Further highlights included the Caterham Drift Passenger rides with professionals providing showgoers with exhilarating thrill rides around the Melbourne Loop track in a Caterham Seven.
Visitors took advantage of the Supercar Paddock, which showcased more than 40 cars from members of Supercar Driver, an online community for supercar owners, ranging from two Lamborghini Aventador SVs, a Jaguar F-Type Project 7, a McLaren 650S and a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.
Lotus was honoured with a special display area and exclusive track time, and automotive website Pistonheads put together a special ‘PH Metal’ display that brought together the cars which truly represent the Pistonheads ‘lifestyle’.
