The Performance Car Show, presented by Landsail Tyres in association with Autocar and PistonHeads.com, is set to name the world’s best hot hatch.
The show, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham in January, will have a centrepiece called Hot Hatch Nirvana, which will feature cars voted for by fans. A poll has been launched today to decide which 10 hot hatches will form the basis of the display.
Fans will be able to vote for their favourite by choosing from a long list that has been curated by a panel of experts that includes Autocar’s editor-in-chief, Steve Cropley and head of features, Matt Prior.
The long list contains a mixture of contemporary and classic models, such as the Mk1 Volkswagen Golf GTI, the Renault 5 Turbo, Peugeot 205 GTi, Ford Escort RS Cosworth, Lancia Delta HF Integrale, Honda Civic Type R, Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG and Audi RS3.
The show will also be playing host to a selection of the world’s rarest and most desirable hypercars and supercars currently on sale.
The full list can be seen at www.performancecarshow.com/hothatchnirvana, and the top 10 and the overall winner will be announced at the show on January 14-17.
