Charles Hurst had brought several franchises to the Titanic Dock along with some of their specialist cars, and the City Auction Group ran a live car auction on both days of the event. AOVC had a large classic car stand, T13 held a bike stunt display, the PSNI Evo was in attendance and “NI Stig”, who I suspect was not on licence from the BBC.
The higlights for the enthusiast were few and far between, with the AOVC classic stand being one with it’s excellent array of well presented cars.
This absolutely stunning Lexus RCF coupé was also the exception, stealing the spotlight on the specialist cars stand. 477bhp, a V8, and yes that yellow is a coachwork wrap. Yours for around £60k.
Toyota had also brought this stunning GT86 with optional aero kit. This car can be spec’d as is from the dealership including the OZ rims and aggressive spoiler.
The Titanic Quarter is no doubt a fantastic venue, and the organisers had clearly made significant investment to provide a free show to the public at large. However, with the franchises at their disposal and the space available, it was surprising not to see a wider range of marques and their more interesting performance variants.
