The Ultimate Supercar Showdown Drifts in to Media City

McLaren P1

To celebrate the hit film NEED FOR SPEED releasing on Blu-ray and DVD (21st July), six supercars will spend two days convoying across the country – to partake in the ultimate supercar showdown!


Starting off at Liverpool’s Albert Docks on Wednesday 16th July and passing through Manchester (MediaCity), Birmingham (M6 Toll) and Warwickshire (PRODRIVE racetrack), local residents and car fans will be encouraged to interact and follow the tour, until it ends in a secret London location on Thursday 17th July.


The whereabouts of the supercars will be documented on the @NeedForSpeed_UK Twitter, where fans have the opportunity to vote for the car that they want to be crowned as the winner of the ‘Need for Speed Convoy’. By voting, fans will be selected at random to win DVD or Blu-ray copies of the film, including a limited edition steelbook, and merchandise.


When the six supercars enter the final leg of the tour – a secret location in London – the champion of the convoy will be revealed in front of TWENTY – THIRTY SUPERCARS that have met for the biggest supercar showdown that this London hotspot has ever seen!


The convoy is representative of the journey Tobey Marshall played by Aaron Paul (best known for his role as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad) embarked on in NEED FOR SPEED, where he too spent two days traveling across country to take part in the De Leon – a winner-take-all race (held in a secret location) where six supercars go head-to-head.


The cars involved in the De Leon race include a GTA Spano, a Buggatti Veyron, a McLaren P1 (pictured above), a Saleen S7, a Koenigsegg Agera R and a Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.
