The council has confirmed classic cars who are driving sensibly will not be instantly hit with penalties even if they break the new decibel limits. The reassurances come after the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea will expand noise cameras across the borough in a bid to reduce antisocial behaviour.
The new rule means cameras will flash drivers once a vehicle exceeds 74 decibels.
Classics are typically louder than modern vehicles with a historic Ford GT producing up to 100 decibels.
Other popular classics such as a TVR Griffith and Ferrari F40 can be capable of up to 98 decibels.
However, Councilor Johnny Thalassites told Express.co.uk classic cars were not the target of the new machines.
