Taking in the incredible car culture in Cape Town

Cape Town is a car mad city. We hadn't been outside the hotel more than a few minutes before the first chorus of exhausts rolled by. A bizarre collection of motors, ranging from a new BMW M6 to a subtly modified Volvo C30, were driving past in convoy.

Our Uber pushed through the crowd and we jumped in the back of his Toyota Etios – a Yaris-sized saloon we don't get in the UK. We'd heard about a weekly car meet that took place in a car park in the Sea Point region at the base of the imposing Signal Hill.
