Watch Autocar set London Speed Record
26 July 2006

If you've read this week's Autocar magazine and want more flavour from our unique attempt to set a London Land Speed Record, then we can help with our exclusive video report.

Our 25-minute programme includes footage of all 10 cars being benchmarked along London City Airport's runway, along with expert comment from Autocar's Road Test Editor Adam Towler, Editor-in-chief Steve Cropley and of course, the man behind the wheel, Editor-at-large Steve Sutcliffe.It's available now, either as a streaming Real or Windows Media file from our videos page or as a podcast.

This week's Autocar magazine includes a feature on the bid, plus a double-sided poster showing the complete history of speed - and the record-breaking car in action.
