    Looks like the Volkswagen's W12 concept car, for some odd reason :naughty:

    Shouldn't that be the other way around?
    i might be way off here, but the Clio V6 is pretty old by now. I also may have missed sarcasm.

    Yeah, seems like the Clio is older. No sarcasm intended.

    And to make it clear I was talking about the VW Golf GTI W12 concept car, as it seems there is other W12 concept cars also from VW.

    I simply assumed that you were talking about the Golf W12 - because that's the one where I see similarity. :p

    Good car spotting day yesterday:
    A brand new Bentley Continental GTC and an old Rolls Royce.

    Rollers are SUPER rare here, and while there are a good few Bentleys I've never seen a GTC before.

    What is the 1st red car that TheDodoKiller posted? There's a white one at a shop around the corner from me and I haven't gotten close enough to see the name. It looks awesome!

    That would be a McLaren 12C Spider:thumb:

    Yesterday I saw what I presume was a Ferrari 250 GTO replica, It was joining the southbound carriageway of the A1 Just before Grantham, I couldn't grab a pic though .

    Or to give its full name, the McLaren MP4-12C Spider, hence the registration plate starting MP04.

    I saw the non-spider version in Leeds, on Sunday. Didn't manage to get a picture, though :(

    Nothing motorised but saw somebody riding a unicycle on road this afternoon on my way home from work, I thought it was a penny farthing until I got close and realised there wasn't a rear wheel!

    Along the same lines i saw a guy walking down one of the busiest roads where we live the other day at about 23:00 on 5 foot stilts. When I asked him what he was doing, if it was for charity, he just looked at me stupid and said "Going home" as if I was being abnormal, he elaborated after and said he was a street performer and often wanders about practising.

    I've watched it 2 or 3 times now, every single one is on my fantasy garage list. Each and every one is defined by its magnificent engine...

    The noise of that McLaren is just sensational, truly a complete masterpiece by Gordon Murray. Every time I see or hear something about the F1 it just captivates me - as a kid I loved the XJ220 and didn't really appreciate what a piece of design the F1 was, it's only now that I'm loving it as a whole.

    Every weekend, without question if it's dry. Around about 6:30 in the morning I've been seeing a black Ariel Atom enjoying the empty roads. Blasts from Huntingdon up towards where I live which is a good 18 miles of straight away's and bends, then loops back towards Huntingdon. Don't want to say exactly where incase the internet trolls find me, lol! Or if I ruin the atom drivers weekend motoring escape.

    We also have a 2013 GTR, but I've never seen him put the hammer down which either means it's still limited to 80, or he's sh*t scared of it still..

    :) Dat vid!

    I have already informed my wife-to-be that if I should EVER come into substantial amounts of money (as in a few houses-and-then-some), a Ferrari F40 is on TOP of my list, and she has no say about that.

    On topic:
    I recently spotted the ONLY Nissan GTR licensed in Namibia. It's white. And a GTR. And owned by a 29 year old.

    Today, if all goes to plan, I might get to look at (and if I ask REALLY nicely, maaaaybe even drive one) a Jag F-Type V6S

    Yup. Every single one is an absolute beast. I probably wouldn't have the F50. I just can't get past it's looks. For V12 Ferrari action i'd probably go with a 550.

    I too was a massive fan of the XJ220. Especially growing up in cov a stones through from the whillenall plant. used to see the odd one driving about with 'camouflage' on. And then there was the XJ220 game on the Amiga. But for me, it has to be the F40. I still have my F40 matchbox car in a draw on my desk, very well worn.
