  • The motorists brought classic vehicles and supercars to parade along Whitehall

Supercar owners drove their vehicles into Central London yesterday in a protest against Sadiq Khan’s expanded Ultra-Low Emission Zone (Ulez).

The motorists led by Petrolheadonism Club founder Ciro Ciampi from Milton Keynes brought modified, classic vehicles and supercars to parade along Whitehall.

They drove from Regents Park to Downing Street to show the perceived hypocrisy at how some of their ‘supercharged monster’ cars do not have to pay the Ulez charge.

The event – one of many Ulez protests in the capital in recent months – was filmed by motoring journalist Shahzad Sheikh, who calls himself the ‘Brown Car Guy’.

Mr Ciampi told Mr Sheikh: ‘We’ve got to celebrate this moment. For people that are here protesting, wow, amazing, because they’ve been affected big time because they live within the M25. It’s just absolutely stupid that it’s been extended.

‘I’ve got a big event in Wembley, it’s going to affect my event next year. For me I’ve got a couple of cars that are not Ulez complaint and I’ve got to pay £12.50 if I come into London for my meetings and stuff like that.

‘But then I’ve got a V12 in the garage or my mate’s got this eight-litre V8 supercharged monster that is Ulez free. It’s not about clean air.

‘It’s absolutely somebody being a narcissist, jumped up, bloody-minded egotistical, arrogant mayor that just won’t listen to anybody.’

Yesterday’s event is the latest in a string of anti-Ulez protests to have taken place in the capital over the last few months. 

Anti-Ulez campaigners have been taking to the streets of London in protest against the expansion of the ultra low emission zone, which took place on August 29.

The expansion of the zone has received opposition from campaigners who say the £12.50-a-day charge is a tax on the poor and working class who cannot afford to buy. 

Among those protesting in Tooting, London, last month was retired financial planner Warren Stephens, 50, who suggested it is ‘all about money and control’.

Mr Stephens, whose car is Ulez compliant, said: ‘It is saying ‘you are OK to drive your polluting car if you give me £12.50’.

‘It is all about money, otherwise they would ban petrol and polluting cars.’
