Getaway cars

Philip Glenister curated a fantastic selection of the greatest Getaway Cars from real-life and film.

This year The London Classic Car Show paid homage to Getaway Cars – an evocative tribute to those vehicles made famous in film or used in headline-grabbing real-life robberies and getaways.

Famous for ‘firing up’ his Audi quattro when acting as DCI Gene Hunt in Ashes to Ashes – Glenister maximised his insider knowledge to bring together this showcase of cars.

“We took our inspiration from TV, films and real life,” said Glenister who also co-presents Channel 4’s motoring show For the Love of Cars.  “Cars need to be quick, handle well and, of course, have lots of room in the back.  but this display was all about cars from the other side of the law.”
