London Thunderbird Taxis Are Go...

Watch our for five Thunderbirds taxis in London this weekend!

The publicity stunt hosted to celebrate the new series of ITV’s Thunderbirds Are Go, will see five traditional London black cabs transformed on October 22 and 23 into either Thunderbird 1,2,3 or 4. A tribute to Lady Penelope’s iconic six-wheeled pink Rolls Royce, FAB 1, will also be available to hire.

Each car will be transformed with wings, personalised number plates and what are being billed as ‘rockets’ – though even the Tracy family have to abide by the law. Scott Tracy, who drives Thunderbird One in the series, will give every passenger a mission and each cab will be driven by a take on Penelope’s Parker.

Thunderbirds Are Go is ITV’s reboot of Gerry Anderson’s classic Thunderbirds (1965) which continues to draw in new fans to the incredible Gerry Anderson original 51 years on from its original production.


Even if you're not into the International Rescue team and their escapades, the brightly coloured taxis are well worth looking out for, as they're charging just £1 for a ride within central London.

You'll find the ThunderCabs flying around near major tourist attractions including Madame Tussauds, the Science Museum and the London Eye. 

All proceeds will be donated to The Children’s Trust Charity, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. Rides can be booked on October 22 and October 23 from 9am to 5pm.
