British made motors take over the Mall | Top Gear – BBC


Having established we do make
quite a lot of stuff in Britain. We decided to find out
just how much, so we hatched
an ambitious plan.
We called all the companies
that make motorised vehicles and said to them ‘”could you bring
whatever it is you make to a gathering
in London?”
Little bit of a problem with Morgan who didn’t know what London was
but eventually, everybody responded
magnificently
Jeremy, Richard and I are taking three different versions of the
new F-Type to London, I for example have the V6.
Woah!
That’s the Triumph bikes
Tremendous
Meanwhile, deep in the countryside…
Oh look at that!
And now look what’s coming…
It’s the Morgan’s
Carry on chaps
Much later than everyone else, the Formula 1 cars
began to leave for London
which in Milton Keynes, was quite a sight…

And quite a sound

Eventually the fleet of vehicles that’d been made in Britain
began to arrive on the streets of the capital
And after the slowest had turned up
we climbed into our Jags and headed for
the meeting point
to see how much stuff was there
this feels a bit special, this does

And it became more special as we swung past Buckingham Palace
and onto the Mall
*gasps*
There’s more than I’d thought
The Mall has hosted many uplifting scenes
over the years
but it has never hosted anything
quite like this before
It wasn’t just the sheer volume that took our breathe away,
it was the diversity,
the breadth.
Cars, Lorries, Diggers,
Racers, Ice Cream Vans, Hearses.
It was magnificent,
it was huge.
I didn’t know we made those massive tipper trucks, look at that thing!
Tractor,
didn’t think of that
Land speed record cars
There’s my bus,
alright mate
Ooh the eagle!
A lot of people say that today
Britain is nothing more than a bank or a
boutique or a busted flush but
looking at that staggering collection back there
I’m not sure they’re right.
Goodnight!

  1. I want any one of you British to tell me, What makes the Royals or her Majesty so much better then you? What or Who gave them that right to be " Royal "? Was it money? Was it God Himself or was it just because they said they were? Why would you think or say some one is better then you? That's just idiotic. That is not me being Egotistical, It is just simple sanity and trying to think better of myself but I guess if that's where you were born then You were brainwashed starting at a young age to think that.

  2. People day that we Brits shouldn't be around of our heritage because of 'imperialism" or "historical oppression", but this video shows just why the British should be proud of our achievements, both past and present

  3. I'm proud and glad to be british 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿
