Ferrari's iconic F40 will head up a new 'Track Icons and Wild Road Cars' display at the Performance Car Show next month.

The event, which takes place as part of the Autosport International show, is being held from 8-11 January at Birmingham's NEC arena.

Built to celebrate Ferrari's 40th anniversary, the F40 is powered by a twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 478bhp and 425lb ft. Able to complete the 0-62mph sprint in just 3.8sec, the F40 was the first production car to break the 200mph barrier.

The F40 will be on display alongside a Jaguar XJR15 - which was launched at the very first Autosport International in 1991 - plus a Porsche 959, Audi Sport Quattro SWB and Lancia Stratos Stradale.

At the other end of the scale, Ferrari's 950bhp LaFerrari hypercar will also be on display.

Other attractions at the 2015 ASI event include the Live Action Arena, where finalists from Autocar's Britain's Best Driver's Car will be put through their paces, as well as our supercar display.

Tickets for Autosport International and the Performance Car Show are already on sale, and cost £32 for adults and £21 for children. For more information about tickets, click here.
