Jaguar have their stunning F-Type Coupe and Convertible on the stand and you will see the Coupe heading up the hill climb in the capable hands of Bruno Senna.  Their new F-Type Project 7, the fastest and most powerful production Jaguar ever is on hand for visitors to get up close with.  It gets from 0-60mph in just 3.8 seconds.

BMW have unleashed the new M4 Coupe and M3 Saloon on their stand alongside the first X4.  The i8 is making runs up the hill, so head to the BMW stand to take a seat in the plug-in hybrid sports car.  Don’t miss their most powerful production car, the M5 30 Jahre Edition taking on the hill during the day.

There are plenty of concepts on the Renault stand including the DeZir, the cute Twin’Run and the sporty crossover Captur.  The new Twingo is also on display for the first time in the UK ahead of its launch in September.  With the first season of Formula E approaching, the new electric race car series, the Spark-Renault SRT-01E is also available to look at.
