As well as a parade of glamorous supercars, visitors will be able to catch a glimpse of some less well known beasts. The British-built TVR Tuscan Convertible is rumoured to be launching at the show as well as other exotica from marques rarely seen on the roads in this country. Chief among them is the awesome Saleen S7 Twin Turbo, left. With 750bhp and a 0-60mph time of 2.8sec, it is arguably the only American machine that can truly be called a supercar and will fire up its engines for the first time in Britain during the show. One of the few machines able to compete with it in the noise stakes is the road version of the 641bhp Gumpert Apollo -also driven for the first time at the show.
