A collection of the world’s fastest supercars will be on pole position when the Top Gear Live roars into the NEC (25-28 October) for the action-packed show’s only UK appearance in 2012.
Heading the grid will be no fewer than four members of the very rare and exclusive 225+mph club topped by the phenomenal Bugatti Veyron. The Super Sport version of the Veyron is officially the world’s fastest production car with a top speed of 263mph.
With prices starting from around £840,000 the mighty 8-litre, W16-engined Bugatti is not for everyday motoring. A set of four tyres alone costs £23,500 and the makers recommend you change them every 2,500 miles while a routine service will set you back around £14,000 – you can buy a brand new Ford Focus for less!
“Supercars have always been one of the biggest crowd pleasers at Top Gear Live but this year’s line-up promises to be bigger and better than ever before,” enthused Daniel Nwaokolo, event director. “We already have four of the world’s fastest machines and more will be confirmed in the run up to the show. For those of us who can only dream of owning one of these remarkable creations – some worth more than a million pounds – a ticket to Top Gear Live is a somewhat more realistic option!”
