Europe’s largest motorsport show is on the hunt for the UK’s Top Tuned Car

Europe’s largest motorsport show is on the hunt for the UK’s Top Tuned Car

The Performance and Tuning Car Show is searching for the UK’s Top Tuned Car with the opportunity for the motorsport winners to display their cars at the event on 14th to 15th January 2023.

As part of Autosport International, Europe’s largest motorsport show, the Performance and Tuning Car Show will roar into action at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC). Featuring vehicles from across the UK’s tuned car scene, it is a feast for the eyes of anyone with an interest in extreme designs and modifications. In the last edition of the Performance and Tuning Car Show, hundreds of cars ranging from tuned Minis to monsters such as heavily modified versions of the Nissan GT-R, Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari 458 were on display. This year, after a break, the show is coming back bigger than ever.

In partnership with Kelsey Media, a leading publishing group with titles including Fast Car, Performance BMW and Fast Ford, the show’s organisers want to celebrate the culture of tuning and modification with a competition to find the UK’s Top Tuned Car. The competition allows owners of tuned cars to submit their applications, from which a voting panel will select the top ten vehicles. After that, it’s all in the hands of the public – the top three cars will be selected through online voting on the show’s website, and will be revealed at the Performance and Tuning Car Show.

Apart from getting VIP tickets to the show and hospitality winners will have the high-profile opportunity to display their customised cars to other modified car fans. The winners will also have their car featured in one of Kelsey Media’s titles, such as Fast Car magazine, together with a yearly subscription to their chosen title, as well as professional photography of their vehicle.

Ben Whibley, Autosport International event director, commented: “In the last 15 years, the car tuning industry has enjoyed growth in all areas. Developments such as the introduction of air-ride, coilovers and hydraulics, tuning electric cars as well as the emerging trend of electrifying classic cars, have brought aspects to the car modification scene not seen before. We’re excited to celebrate the tuning sector with the Top Tuned Car competition bringing many labour of love hobby projects to the public light.”

Think you have the next UK’s Top Tuned Car? Apply here. Applications close on 31 October 2022. The judging panel will reveal the top ten on 7 November, with voting open between 7th and 30th November 2022. The top three winners will be revealed during the public days of the show (14th – 15th January 2023). Terms and conditions apply.

The Performance and Tuning Car Show, as part of Autosport International, will take place between 12th and 15th January 2023 at the NEC in Birmingham. Tickets are available to buy now at
