Over 60 DeLorean cars will descend upon Belfast this weekend as part of a "DeLorean Revival" campaign aiming to celebrate the classic car.

A total of 62 DeLoreans from all over the UK and Europe will take part in the revival weekend, starting with a trip to the Ulster Transport Museum at 10 a.m. on Friday before a takeover of Northern Ireland's Parliament Buildings at Stormont on Saturday morning. 

On Sunday, DeLorean drivers will take to the test track of the old DeLorean factory in West Belfast to celebrate the classic car, made famous by the "Back to the Future" movie franchise. 

The group will also head to Titanic Distillers on Friday evening for the launch of a limited-edition whiskey. 

Peter Lavery, a lotto-winning bus driver and former DeLorean owner who opened the distillery last year, is launching a "DeLorean Revival" bottle of whiskey to celebrate the classic car, which has strong ties to Belfast. 

Located in the Twinbrook industrial estate in West Belfast, the old DeLorian factory was established in 1978 by founder John DeLorean, who aimed to produce 30,000 DMC-12 DeLoreans every year at the factory. 

However, the factory had produced just 7,500 cars and had only managed to sell 3,000. 

The DMC entered receivership in February 1982 and the Belfast factory closed the following May, although the car's cult status and its connection to Belfast has endured over the past four decades. 

The DeLorean Club UK has organized the upcoming festivities to celebrate the car's legacy. 

David Mathers, co-organizer of the celebrations, told the Belfast Telegraph that he organized the event with Allistair Vanstone, co-founder of the DeLorean Club. 

"Over the last few months, it has grown from half a dozen cars coming for a small car show to 62 coming for a big Stormont event," Mathers told the Belfast Telegraph. 

He added that it took a number of volunteers about a week to clear the DeLorean test track by the old factory, costing around £10,000. 

"We spent about a week taking all the grass and trees away. It’s all there, looking as if it has just been built. We had together nearly £10,000 to clear it," he added. 

"A couple of Americans donated a few thousand pounds and all our boys here pitched in with money to do so." 

Members of the public are encouraged to come and view the show at Stormont, which kicks off at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday. 

All proceeds from the show will go toward charities Pancreatic Cancer Research and Action Cancer.
