Thunderbirds are go! Our latest addition to the fleet at L.A. Stretch Limos is Thunderbird 2 – a new unique car hire that can be yours for event car hire, concept car hire, or if you need everyone’s favourite Thunderbird, one of the most famous tv cars of all time, as a prop for a photoshoot or promotional launch.
This unusual vehicle is sure to capture attention with biannual appearances for Comic Con at the Excel Centre in the Docklands and now on the streets of London.
This retrofitted automobile replica of the fictional aircraft started life as a Toyota and reaches speeds of up to 90mph. Apart from its exterior that is faithful to the distinctive original and fits the bill for a nostalgic car hire, the Thunderbird 2 celebrates the special history of British pop culture.
Why hire this unusual car Thunderbird 2
Thunderbird 2 is everyone’s favourite Thunderbird — a nostalgic green supersonic carrier aircraft that transports rescue vehicles and equipment in detachable capsules called “pods”.
Originally piloted by Virgil Tracy in the classic British science-fiction television program produced between 1964 and 1966, the Thunderbird 2 is an iconic and unique vehicle!
Set between 2065 and 2067, Thunderbirds follows the exploits of the Tracy family, headed by American ex-astronaut Jeff Tracy. Jeff is a widower with five adult sons: Scott, John, Virgil, Gordon and Alan. The Tracys make up International Rescue (IR), a secret organisation founded to save human life. They are aided in this mission by the Thunderbirds cars: technologically-advanced land, sea, air and space vehicles that are called into service when conventional rescue methods prove ineffective. The most important of these vehicles are the five “Thunderbird machines”, each assigned to one of the five Tracy brothers with Virgil piloting the Thunderbird 2.
The Thunderbirds TV series was followed by two feature-length film sequels (Thunderbirds Are Go and Thunderbird 6, released in 1966 and 1968, respectively and the second of two TV remakes, Thunderbirds Are Go, debuted in 2015.
