Premium automotive retailer invites visitors of the largest family fundraising festival of the year to #FeelThePerformance with their line up of some of the most iconic cars to touch the road.

Williams, the leading premium automotive retailer, has committed to providing some of the automotive industry’s finest vehicles for its return to CarFest North.

50 years of BMW M provides the opportunity to celebrate M models, both classic and new.

The BMW M1, first designed and released in 1980, will be a show highlight. Fresh from being secured to be displayed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the iconic vehicle promises to be the talking point and photographic backdrop at this year’s CarFast North. With only 399 road worthy BMW M1s made, they originally priced at £37,500 when it made its debut over four decades ago, these iconic, limited edition models will now change hands for over twenty times their original value, such is their appeal to enthusiasts

With a top speed of over 160mph and 0-62 mph time of just 5.6 seconds, this design and engineering feat is the go to vehicle at the 3 day festival for many who will want a long awaited glimpse at the rare design classic.

Taking place at Bolesworth Estate in Cheshire from 22-24 July, the Chris Evans backed event promises an action packed itinerary for all the family. Divided into seven zones, the festival offers CarFest, StarFest, SpaFest, The Great British FoodFest, KidsFest, RetroFest, and AdventureFest, alongside an star-studded array of musical guests including McFly, Melanie C, Steps, and much more.
