A host of exotic and glamorous cars have paid a visit to Ipswich’s Cornhill today as part of the Celebrate Ipswich festival.

The St Tropez Car Exhibition started at 10am and is running until 4pm near the town hall.

Among the vehicles on display are a 1973 Jaguar E-Type, an Aston Martin DB5 and a replica of an F1 car.

Joining the line-up is a variety of celebrity look-a-likes, including the Duchess of Cambridge, James Bond actor Daniel Craig and current Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel.

If you miss the show today there will be another chance to see it on Sunday when the cars will move to outside the Salthouse Harbour Hotel to coincide with the Maritime Festival.

A variety of events are running throughout the week as part of Celebrate Ipswich which is being run by Ipswich Central.

They include urban freestyle shows and other street entertainment, the Beer and beverage Festival and lots of live music around the town.

  • How dreadful, the lookalikes were nothing like! Reminded me of the Great Yarmouth waxworks that are so famous on the internet for being so rubbish.

  • We should have had a display from Eastern Europe as most of the centre of the town is over ran by them.

  • It's a shame that something that's supposed to be celebrating Ipswich couldn't have actually had things from Ipswich. Trident cars were built in Ipswich & Ransomes have built ploughs, tractors, threshing machines, combines, lawnmowers, trolley buses & forklifts. Surely these would have been better than any old cars & as for the so called lookalikes I hope no-one spent a lot of money on them. Perhaps it would be a good idea for your reporters to check their facts before putting this to print in future as well.

  • The celebs were not even close to looking like who they were meant to be. The Ferrari F1, was a Jordan. It looked home made, very bad example. And the muppet trying to be Seb Vettel. Seb is nothing to do with Jordan F1. Another joke for Ipswich.

  • Sometimes you can read a headline and just know its a lie. The thing that gave it away was the bit about famous folks coming to Ipswich, even the real cars couldn't be bothered.

  • "Among the vehicles on display are... a replica of a Ferrari F1 car". The car was actually a replica of a Jordan EJ11 from 2001, with someone in Red Bull overalls posing next to it. Seems that no-one could be bothered in doing their research properly, and that goes for both the organisers and the author of this article.

  • "Fast cars and celebrity doubles". Well that just about sums up which end of society this is aimed at.
