New cars go on show at Motor Showcase in Bournemouth's BIC
PETROL heads can get up close to new models – including the much-anticipated Jaguar F-Type – before they go on sale at a showcase event.
Westover Group has confirmed that three pre-release cars will be attending its first ever Motor Showcase at the Bournemouth International Centre on Friday and Saturday, March 8 and 9.
The group has also just announced details of the car that can be won in its free prize draw.
The stunning F-Type, which is making one of its first public appearances in the UK, will be joined by the new all-electric Renault Zoe and the Kia Pro cee’d.
New models only recently released to the UK market and attending the showcase include the Nissan Juke Nismo, the new Range Rover, Fiat 500L and Skoda Rapid.
Making a special appearance, the £100,000 Lexus LS600 F Sport will also be joining the Westover line-up.
Anyone who registers online in advance of the event and presents their printed ticket on the day will be entered into a free prize draw to win a new Peugeot 208 Access Plus, worth more than £11,000.
Paul Collins, Westover Group director, pictured, said: “The Motor Showcase promises to be a must-see event for petrol heads and casual observers alike.
“We will have vehicles of all shapes and sizes on display – from small city cars and family-friendly estates, through to sleek corporate cars and the very latest in the UK’s electric line up, as well as robust 4x4 and commercial vehicles.
“There really will be something to suit all tastes. The competition, which we are running in association with Auto Trader, is the icing on the cake.
“The odds of winning stack up strongly compared to any of the lottery draws, so it’s really worth entering. Someone is going to be very pleased they attended.”
Hosted to celebrate Westover’s 90th anniversary, the Motor Showcase will see 90 new and current vehicles from across Westover’s 14 manufacturer brands come together under one roof for the first time.
The event, which supports five local charities, is free of charge and will be open to the public from 12-6pm on Friday, March 8, and from 10am-5pm on Saturday, March 9.
