The Performance and Tuning Car Show is searching for the UK’s Top Tuned Car with the opportunity for the winners to display their cars at the event, held at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre (NEC), from 14th to 15th January 2023.
To celebrate the world of car customisation, the Performance and Tuning Car Show is searching for the best modified car in the UK in partnership with Fast Car. Since the launch of the competition, owners of head-turning tuned cars from across the nation have applied to get the chance to win the prestigious title of the UK’s Top Tuned Car, as well as the high-profile opportunity to display their customised car to other modified car fans at the Performance and Tuning Car Show.
The winner 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.
The applications have ranged from old timers, like the Ford Cortina Mk1 or Volkswagen Golf Mk1, through to ‘90s and ‘00s classics like the Toyota Chaser JZX100 or Nissan Skyline R33 and R34, and up to modern-day machines including the newest Ford Focus RS, Audi RS3 or BMW X4M Competition.
The wide range of applications further confirms the high interest in car tuning and customisation, which will be celebrated at the January edition of the Performance and Tuning Car Show that runs alongside Autosport International at Birmingham’s NEC.
The judging panel, consisting of experts and editors from Autosport International and Fast Car, have now revealed the top ten cars:
