Four of the 225mph club to appear at Top Gear Live


We all know BBC's Top Gear presenters have a love for all things fast - well, two of them do anyway - so the line-up for this year's Live event shouldn't be a huge surprise.

Held at the NEC, the show will - as usual - showcase a wide selection of glorious metal, along with the three petrolheads' usual antics, from the October 25-28.

Supercars are said to be the crowning glory of the event this time around, with organisers listing not one, but four cars from the exclusive '225mph club'.

Heading up the list is Bugatti's ubiquitous Veyron, followed by America's offering - the SSC Ultimate Aero. Sweden's Koenigsegg CCX is third, and the bizarre-looking, but suitably fast Gumpert Apollo completes the group.

Joining the foursome in the Supercar Paddock, provided by London's Motor Museum, will be a healthy selection of the usual bedroom pin-ups, with the McLaren MP4-12C, Lamborghini Aventador and Porsche Carrera GT confirmed to make appearances.

Aston Martin's new Halo model, the AM310 Vanquish will be on parade too, as will many more yet-to-be-confirmed showstoppers, say the organisers.

A full list of four-wheeled attendees is available on the Top Gear Live website - - and tickets, which start from £49, can be booked either from there, or by phoning 0871 230 5588.
