MPH Show - NEC

The MPH show is crammed full of 4-wheeled exotica. If you have desires for a beautiful finish on a supercar or tricked-up road car then then this show is for you. We popped in for a preview and although the finishing touches were being added to the show it has a mind boggling assortment of luxury and extravagance that one is left with a dribbling tongue.

British Supercar manufacturer, Ascari has produced the answer to the Ferrari Enzo FXX, but for keeps! Whereas the Enzo FXX is not road legal, it was produced to be driven during track days only and costs just over £1 million (1.5m EUROS), the A10 is road legal so can be driven home and parked on your drive, to the envy of your neighbours for just £350,000 (522,000 Euros or 650,000 US dollars).

Designed, engineered and hand built in Banbury, England the A10 has 625bhp and weighs in at around 1200kg, thanks to its lightweight carbon fibre bodywork. Reaching 60mph in just 2.8 seconds and 100mph in less than 6 seconds, the manufacturer claims the A10 is the fastest road going production car around a race track.

Only 10 are available and will be built to order.

The A10 is more than just a revamped KZ1, which has found success in its first year of competing in the GT3 in 2006. It has new body panels, a reworked engine and suspension, with extensive brake modifications to cope with the extra power. Lucky owners will also benefit, if they wish, from some luxuries such as remote central locking, electric windows and door mirrors, climate control and a Thatcham Category 1 alarm system.

The UK’s newest Supercar will make its first ever appearance at the 2006 MPH show in Birmingham, England on 28 October.

MPH’06 is at Birmingham’s NEC for 3 days before heading south to Earls Court in London between 2nd and 5th November.
