Another Mercedes, with a bomb made up of 60 litres of petrol, gas cylinders and nails, had been found outside a nightclub in Haymarket at 0130 BST.
Both devices were similar, viable and clearly linked, police said.
The second device was found in a blue 280E model Mercedes. It was given a parking ticket on Friday after being found illegally parked in Cockspur Street.
The vehicle was then towed to the Park Lane car pound about an hour later.
The BBC’s Daniel Sandford said police had been alerted to it after staff who had heard about the Haymarket bomb noticed a strong smell of petrol coming from it.
According to the article, “International elements” are believed to be responsible.
