    Spotted a brand new Audi RS6 at the McDonalds drive-thru this afternoon. Didn't have my phone with me at the time but it was all black with tinted windows and stock alloys, easy enough to find on google. When you see this car in person, the last thing you think is "560HP biturbo V8, 0-60 3.9 secs". Hell yeah.

    i saw TWO porsche 918s yesterday. one of them was the weissach edition with some racing type stuff on it

    pretty ridiculous to see for my area, where the fanciest cars normally are teslas and the occasional GT-R

    I saw a diesel Porsche the other day. A big lump of a thing it was, a Panamera I think.

    The Panameras are huge. I often see a completely blacked out turbo version, well all black aside from the bright yellow brake calipers.

    I wasn't even aware that they sell those anywhere outside Southern Africa.
    A mate of mine has one of those Turbo'd up with a SERIOUS piece of turbo on an older 2Litre S3 engine.
    That thing goes like stink.

    I see Panameras quite regularly. HUGE is the right word. And those backs aren't the sexiest Porsche has ever built (and that's saying a bit - Porsches tend to be much prettier from the front)

    You're not kidding! It completely filled a supermarket parking space and the front even stuck out a bit. It was so big that at first, looking at the front, I thought it was a lowered/blinged-up 4x4 Porsche thing (Cayenne?).

    The first time I saw one was when one drove past us just after pulling away from some lights, my first thought was 'oo Porsche... hang on, there's more... and more... what the hell was that?'

    My friend bought a F430 Scuderia 16M on the weekend. Took a ride in that, one of 26 RHD models in the world. It was ****ing mental.

    Your friend either saved up a whole lot of money or makes good money. Can't say i'm not jealous. Always had a spot for the 430 Scuds

    They sold them in the US in the mid 80s, Europe from 89 to 91 then SA after that haha.

    The one there with the massive intercooler was running a VR6 Turbo (540hp). THAT was mental.

    I saw mine coming home from the Shrewsbury Steam Rally. I hope to go to Dorset Steam Fair one day.

    Both ;)

    He's actually bought it as more of an investment, so we took it for a spin but she's going straight into storage. He had two choices you see, buy a house or buy a 16M.

    His decision is why he's my friend. :D

    I'm sure some will say that it's mental not ever really driving a car like that or letting the world see it, but the rarity of that one in particular, putting 1000 miles on it basically costs you £10k in mid term appreciation alone.

    I hope it works out for your mate.

    I also have a feeling that, if presented with a choice, I would have chosed the 16M as well... haha

    Likewise. The 430 Scud - and sure, the 16M too - is still the Ferrari I love most. The Italia simply doesn't convey that... brutishness. :D It'll take some doing for Ferrari to top the Scuds for me, and given the increasing electric/hybrid content, it may never happen. In a way, I see the Scuds as the last of the "true" Fezzas.

    I can't believe what some Testarossas are going for nowadays. A few years ago you couldn't give them away, now I see them listed at anything from £100k-200k.
