The Lost City is the 23rd produced episode and the 19th broadcast episode of the British television series Supercar.


Professor Watkins, a mad Englishman, has a plan to destroy Washington with a guided missile from his hideout beneath a lost city. Dr. Horatio Beaker and Mike Mercury are captured when they stumble across the city and Jimmy nearly ends up the same way, but Supercar's engines manage to destroy the Professor's robot. Mike and Beaker escape by imitating Watkins' voice, and its up to Beaker to use his radio to deflect the missile back to its home base beneath the lost city in the Amazon.
