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. If you'd ask for all British owned companies to turn up I have a feeling it would be a lot less than half of what was shown on this TV show

  2. We make McDonald's burgers here and drink Starbucks coffee doesn't mean to say that is part of this country

  3. British invented, built everything and as for anything motorized, planes, boats, ships and submarines not here yet as well as those rockets that brought satellites up in space or the spaceships they keep about all these years

  4. Does London have auto services that focus only on electrics and electronics? I can't imagine half of those got there without needing some diagnostics.

  5. i love the show, but fact remains that even the crown jewel diamonds of your GB are stolen, sadly it is nothing more than a thief in a stolen Jaguar, sporting it!

  6. This makes me proud to be a Britain….I do hope someone shows this to Boris, perhaps his charisma, and a purposeful sense of national pride will keep him from a no deal….how I love you, my splendid little island! <3

  7. did anybody notice stonehenge @1:48 I never noticed it before!
    showing the the growth of British technology as far back as the stone age.

  8. its a shame they could'nt fit planes and boats onto the mall as there was'nt enough room especially for Concorde or the red arrows.

  9. @2:42 As the formula one cars thunder along VRRRRRROOOOOOOOMMMMMMM!

    The sign says 'Thank you for driving safely milton keynes'

  10. The only way this could get better is if a Vulcan flew over tailed be a flight of spitfires with the royal guard saluting from the sidelines

  11. This makes me so proud to be English then I look up at London in disgust and instantly wish I was in Scotland which I love

  12. I started getting weepy. I hope the idiot producer who got rid of these brilliant guys now realises they irreplaceable. I watched about 15 secs of new top gear and it doesn't deserve to keep the name these guys branded it and I wish they'd come back as a season on Amazon isn't the same as a weekly slot. I miss them terribly.

  13. The very famous MINI came, every model, thats what spells British.
    As well as many other cars but the MINI is my favourite.
    Leave a like if you want the old Top Gear to come back so we see more of this!

  14. Ladies and gentlemen … we are the bbc we can’t overtly claim to be right wing but here is a right wing racist with a Union Jack telling you how Great Britain is .. ukip voters are free to masturbate vigorously …

  15. I hugely support made in Britain but…

    Rolls Royce has their major components manufactured in Germany.
    Alexander Dennis has ceased manufacture of fire trucks.
    Ice cream vans and camper vans should not be considered made in Britain when they are entirely built on French/German made vehicles.

  16. This is a fitting end to old Top Gear. All British made vehicles and my God look how many. A proud moment for the UK. Three cheers for Queen and country. RIP Top Gear, gone but never forgotten. I hope her majesty was watching from the palace. This would put tears of pride in even her eyes. Good show lads, good show.

  17. Bentley belongs to VW, Rolls-Royce and Mini belongs to BMW which are German, Jaguar was owned by Tata and Mercedes owned 40% of McLaren at that time so they aren’t/weren’t that British…..
