MEXICO CITY, Mexico - Classic-car enthusiasts have broken a Guinness world record for the biggest parade of its sort by lining up 1721 shining Mustangs and Cadillacs and a selection of cheerily decorated VW Beetles.

Guinness World Records adjudicator Evelyn Carrera told AFP: "It's amazing, we seek the extraordinary in the ordinary."

Sunday's feat eclipsed the previous record, set in 2002 in Zandvoort in the Netherlands, with 948 vehicles.


The Mexico City authorities said in a statement that the parade turned the Paseo de la Reforma avenue that runs through the heart of the capital into "an authentic rolling museum".

More than 250 000 people viewed the cars along the 5.6km route.

In May 2014 a sea of 3634 chefs in white aprons and scores of racing waiters set two Guinness world records in Mexico City - one for the most chefs in a single place and the other for the most waiters with drinks on a silver tray participating in an 800m race.
