The Vulcan, an 800bhp purpose-built race car, stole the show over the weekend. With a price tag of £2million and one of only 24 ever made, it is rightly regarded as one of the world’s most exclusive cars.

Former F1 driver and Fifth Gear presenter, Tiff Needell, made a guest appearance and showed off his skills behind the wheel, giving a few lucky visitors passenger laps in Central Lotus’ Evora 400.
