Belfast Motor Show: Supercar stars as event returns

By Rebecca Black

One of the world's fastest cars will be the main attraction as the Belfast Motor Show roars into life this weekend.

With a top speed of 225mph and capacity to reach 60mph in just three seconds, the Noble M600 is a car lover's dream.

Handbuilt in the UK, the Noble team designed it "for those who love driving" and eliminated any of what they considered "unnecessary computer assistance".

Peter Dyson, owner of Noble Automotive Ltd, said the car was "a labour of love, of no compromise and challenges fought".

As well as bringing the Noble M600 to Northern Ireland for the first time, the Belfast Motor Show will also include a feast of attractions for enthusiasts.

There will be a visit from Titan the Robot, a bid to break the Strongman car lift record, a chance to meet motorbike racer Maria Costello and a kit car built by the University of Ulster, plus simulators, face-painting, kids' karting, safety demonstrations and even a crash re-enactment.

Show organiser Kerry Mann said: "This is the first year of the Belfast Motor Show. I'm from an events background so we were looking around to see what wasn't here and what we could bring over.

"We thought: there is a big following over here for cars and motorsport, so let's create a motoring event."

The Belfast Motor Show takes place at the King's Hall this weekend. Doors open 10am–6pm today and tomorrow and admission is £10 per adult, £7 for over 65s and £5 for those aged 6-16.

Noble M600 boasts 0-60 in three seconds, a top speed of 225mph and no ABS braking ... yikes!

After being parked for 12 years, event revs up

Why I'm positively purring at prospect of so many things that go brrrmm
