To celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty’s reign, leading online classic and niche vehicle marketplace Car & Classic proudly announced that they have gathered seventy vehicles that represent a year each of Her Majesty’s reign.

The chosen vehicles would be arranged along the “Long Walk” leading to the Castle and they will be part of a unique exhibition that showcases seven decades of motoring history. On June 4, Saturday, during the ‘Jubilee Party at the Park’ in Windsor Castle, each and every car that will be displayed is an example of the best British engineering and innovation.

“Of course, one of the marques traditionally favoured by the Royal family features high on our list: the 1952 car is a Land Rover Series One 80 inch and the most modern is a Land Rover Defender. Aston Martin’s presence is secured by a DB2/4 followed by DB4, DB6 Vantage Volante, V8, DB7 GT and a V12 Vantage,” Pollitt added.
