Steeda at the Autosport 2018 Show - Q500 Enforcer European Launch!

Well Steeda UK kicked off 2018 in great style with an amazing premier of the "Velgen Society UK" in a meet at the historic Bicester heritage centre, which you can read about BY CLICKING HERE

We were blessed both with amazing sunny weather (in the midst of January greyness, mist and rain!), and also a fabulous selection of cars, customers and dealers who had come along to support that day, and we were also very happy to host Scott the owner of Velgen wheels from Miami, and his legendary photographer and vidmaster, Franco.

MSN cars also attended, and Motoring Research also put up this great little article.

The attendees were lucky enough to grab some Velgen swag as well as bear witness to the glories of the brand new Velgen Forged ranged. Some people wept as their beauty was revealed... (and I am almost not exaggerating).

They also got the first reveal of the completed Steeda Q500 Enforcer UK launch car

The Velgen meet was the curtain raiser event to the Performance Car Show at the Autosport International event at the NEC in Birmingham. 


We were soon set up and after an extremely tiring but fun 4 days we crawled home and flew home and were amazed by the incredibly positive reception we had received across the board both from the press and the general public.
