Sinclair C5 and Sinclair ZX Spectrum Video Games

This page features a great selection of videos featuring the best ZX Spectrum video games and game music, TV Ads and the ill-fated Sinclair C5. Enjoy!

Sinclair C5
The ill-conceived C5 was a bit of a disaster for its inventor Sir Clive Sinclair. Launched on January 10th 1985, the battery-powered Sinclair C5 could be driven without a driving licence, as it's top-speed was under 15 mph. Despite being sold for just £399, due to much ridicule by the press only 12,000 vehicles were ever sold.

This amusing clip features a complete lunatic taking a trip back into the 80s in his jet-powered C5!

Now here are some more excellent Sinclair videos to have a gander at. The first one is a great mickey-take of the Sinclair C5 and well worth watching just for a laugh! You can see why this "vehicle of the future" never made it past the 80s! The second video is an 80s ZX Spectrum advert.

Fortunately, this was a much more successful venture for Sir Clive. The final video features dozens of ZX Spectrum games - enjoy!

ZX Spectrum 80s Advert

This is the UK TV Advert for the Speccy - anyone remember it? Not sure whether I can, but it makes for interesting viewing if you're a bit of a computer geek like me! Apparently, this is from 1982.

A selection of the best ZX Spectrum video games (that's the video creator's opinion, not mine as I never owned a Spectrum but kind of feel that I should've done!) with computer chip music.
