On display will be the UK’s first URUS – the world’s first ever ‘true’ Super Sport Utility Vehicle. Combining off-road capability with blistering on-road performance, you can plug through the bog or smack 62mph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds before hitting the reported top speed of 190mph. Power comes from a 4.0-litre V8 producing 650bhp.
Developed in partnership with Williams F1, the Denbrobium is the first hypercar to come from Singapore. Utilising electric power and F1 technology, this newcomer delivers enough grunt and torque to crack 60mph in under 2.6 seconds.
Aston Martin Vantage
Having debuted at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, this will be one of the first public UK sightings since, less than a month after its debut on British soil at Goodwood. Under the bonnet lurks a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 enabling a 0-60mph sprint in just 3.6 seconds.
The new Continental GT features an all-new 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine for the ‘quintessential grand tourer’ experience.
