    A Ferrari 360 Modena, pristine.

    A Ferrari 512BB (yes I'm dead serious, I wish I took pictures)

    Another Acura/Honda NSX. A bunch of R35s, A bunch of M3s and C63s.

    I must say, I've begun to grow fond of M3s. They're rather nice even if everyone has one.

    A very tidy looking 1967 left hand drive Porsche 912

    It's surprising small when compared to current Porsches and other modern cars.

    Toyota Celica (MK VI) outside the house, blowing smoke from all four tires, in desperate attempt to gain traction. Crabbing a twitching up the road, whistling and popping on over-run.

    Any other location I would be grinning ear to ear, but here on the high street of a small town, with kids playing I could only smirk. Was only on Friday a young boy (~4 yr old) got hit by a car, luckily my partner was at home to attend the scene (Nurse). Luckily the little lad was fine and mostly at fault as he ran out in front of a car and gave himself a bigger shock than the driver. Little bump from falling over, but never the less he was lucky!

    was it a wet road? Happens to me a lot during the monsoon, especially when I borrow the old man's diesel monster.

    bone dry, this was a true sleeper for a Celica. Looked totally stock base model, but the fulgy alloys seemed wider than usual and it certainly had grunt over 500hp, judging by the smoke and lack of traction.

    Utterly reckless to use it in town like that then. Good spot though. :)

    I saw a Juke Nismo the other day.

    Still don't like it, although the Nismo didn't seem as gaudy as it does in the marketing bumph.

    Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, just by Henley's corner (A1 / north circular). It could have been an FF, but I'm 75% sure it was an F12. No time for a photo, but it looked like this...

    Want. :D

    Very nice! (The Lancia, not the Leaf!) :D

    Whilst wondering around Kensington / Knightsbridge today, I spotted:

    - a Bugatti Veyron (not sure which "edition")
    - numerous Rolls Royce Ghosts
    - A Ferrari 458 spider
    - A McLaren MP4-12C convertible
    - A Porsche 911 (996) GT3

    and this beauty:

    I was at Luton Hoo last week for work, Where Jaguar and Land Rover were having a demo day for the wealthy.

    Lost count of the cars there, but numerous F-types,RangeRovers,Evoques. Plus all the cars that were in the car park which included a 458, S65AMG, and a really nice Cayman in gulf racing colours with full roll cage and huge rear wing.

    So, it's the antithesis of cool, but so noteworthy I though I had to post. Perhaps the most obscure thing I've ever come across on the road, and sadly I was driving an unable to take a photo: An ~80 year old woman, full granny pose with hairnet, looking down her nose, barely able to see over the wheel, pottering along at perhaps 50mph on a 70-limit road, driving a bright orange Aston Martin Cygnet.

    Until this day I still wasn't entirely convinced they were any more than a practical joke by AM.

    :hehe: I've seen two, the first at Geneva:

    [​IMG]

    Then the 2nd passed me going the opposite way on the way home one day.

    At first I was utterly incensed that Aston built them, but the more I've thought about it, the more I've warmed to them. They're obviously comedy gold, and they let Aston build as many things that sound like this as they can:


    The people to be annoyed with are, as Clarkson would say, the ecomentalists who made the rules about maximum CO2 emissions for a tiny slice of the pie.
