Capital car parade
12 June 2006

London is kicking off festivities for the British International Motor Show (18-30 July) with its first official car parade, which takes place on Sunday 16 July.

The parade will celebrate 100 years of the motor vehicle, with vehicles ranging from vintage Ford model Ts to Rolls-Royces, Bentleys, Aston Martins and Lotuses.

There will also be classic London cars – including taxis aplenty – and film cars such as Fab 1, Lara Croft’s Land Rover and Austin Power’s Shaguar.

The parade starts at 2.30pm on Piccadilly, and finishes on Whitehall.
