You’ll be amazed by Beaulieu’s Supercar Weekend on August 5th and 6th, an unmissable two-day showdown gathering together more than 450 of the most impressive supercars on the planet. With high-octane demonstration runs and amazing displays of earth-shattering cars, performance car fans of every age will love the show.

Battle of the Brands is at the heart of the Beaulieu Supercar Weekend, bringing together jaw-dropping motors from the world’s leading supercar-building nations in the grounds of the National Motor Museum. See these wildly different but equally awesome supercars facing down their competition across Beaulieu’s giant globe.

The Dodge Viper ACR, a 645bhp V10 monster, will be sharing the American section with the very latest Ford Mustang GT500, vying for visitors’ attention with Japan’s track-proven Nissan GT-R NISMO, blistering Honda NSX and V8-powered Lexus LC 500.

Look to the Italian display for world-leading performance cars, including the Ferrari 488 GTB, Lamborghini Huracan and Maserati GranTurismo, while the Mercedes-AMG GT S, BMW i8 and Porsche GT3 RS will all be flying the flag for Germany. If all that wasn’t enough, the British camp will also be chock-full of stunning machines, including the McLaren 720S, Bentley Continental, Aston Martin DB11 and Jaguar F-Type SVR.

The show will also pay homage to the legendary Ford GT, with a rare opportunity to see road-going and race-spec versions of the car’s latest incarnation. Compare these dream cars up-close, then find your spot near Beaulieu’s Chestnut Avenue to watch supercars roar past in spectacular demonstration runs, as drivers put the acceleration of their machines to the test for visitors.

Why not treat yourself and enjoy hospitality in the Domus in Beaulieu’s 13th century Abbey. Available on both days of the show, visitors and supercar owners alike are invited to relax in the historic setting next to the rally showground and enjoy a selection of refreshments and a mouth-watering three-course lunch prepared by the chefs of Leith’s at Beaulieu. To book hospitality tickets before the July 21st deadline, call 01590 612888 or book online at www.beaulieu.co.uk/events/beaulieu-supercar-weekend/.

Head to the lawns of Palace House, the ancestral home of the Montagu family, to see an incredible 20-car line-up of the most prestigious supercars and hypercars ever built, gathered together by Classic Insurance Services.

Celebrating 50 years of one of the UK’s most action-packed forms of motorsport, the Retro Rallycross Championship will be bringing together some of the most historically important rallycross cars for show-goers to see up-close. At the display’s centre will be the Porsche 911 driven to victory by Vic Elford in the first British rallycross race in 1967.

Prepare to be impressed by Holy Trinity displays, each one showcasing the three supercars at the pinnacle of engineering in each decade from the 1980s to the present day. Explore the SUV Secret Garden where 20 of the industry’s leading luxury off-roaders will be on display. From the latest Range Rover Velar and Bentley Bentayga to the classic Lamborghini LM002, these high-spec all-terrain super-SUVs are sure to impress.

Don’t miss the events fields, where scores of supercar owners will be parking up their stylish and powerful machines for all to see and admire. Variety is guaranteed, so keep your eyes peeled for rare and unusual examples. The Lotus Driver’s Club and Club Lotus will be joining forces for a memorable drive-in, while Porsche Club Great Britain will also showcase members’ cars.
