200mph and Beyond at MPH ‘07


Ever since the legendary Ferrari F40 roared onto the scene in 1987, 200mph has been the benchmark for supercar makers to beat. In the 90s only a handful of cars emerged that could crack the magic double ton but since 2003 that trickle has become a virtual torrent.

And the organisers of this year’s MPH, the Jeremy Clarkson-fronted performance and prestige motor show, plan to showcase the lot.

The checklist includes the evocatively titled Koenigsegg CCX, Pagani Zonda, Bugatti Veyron, the Gumpert Apollo and Ascari KZ1 alongside more familiar names like the Bristol Fighter, Lamborghini Murcielago, Maserati MC12, Porsche Carrera GT and Ferrari Enzo.

At last year’s show a staggering array of cars including seven Ferrari Enzos, and a McLaren F1 LM helped push the insurance premium pass the £1 billion mark.

MPH show director, Lee Masters, is the man responsible for getting the cars for Jeremy and his co-hosts in the live motoring theatre. He said: “We’re in conversation with the companies who hold the keys to the most desirable cars on the planet. We plan to bring the ‘200mph club’ to London and Birmingham and parade the best of this year’s dream machines through the theatre and motor show.” next>>
