The National Motor Museum has caused a world record-breaking traffic jam, compiling of over 24,000 cars.

Luckily for the morning commuters, the vehicles making up the epic queue were all toys.

Officially the biggest number of cars ever assembled in one line, the queue of 24,189 toy cars snakes its way around the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu and stretches for nearly one and a half miles.

Car enthusiasts and celebrities alike joined in the efforts to beat the previous world record set in the German town of Fussen.

Signed cars from the likes of Sir Stirling Moss and TV motoring presenters Quentin Willson and Vicki Butler-Henderson joined the line comprised of cars donated from across the UK.

Models were donated to Beaulieu by customers at 21 Sainsbury’s stores across the country, reports the Daily Echo.

“It is fantastic and we should love to do this again in the future,” said Andy Ollerenshaw, a member of Beaulieu’s events team.

“A big thank you to everybody who donated vehicles.” 

The toy cars will now be sold to raise money for Hampshire children’s hospices Naomi House and Jacksplace, which care for ill children and young adults.

Children from the hospices completed the line with its final cars before independent adjudicators counted them and checked they were all touching.
