I have had a thing for RUF cars ever since the first Grand Turismo, beautiful cars.
Not kidding, i didn't even know what a ctr3 was but could easily tell it was porsche, did a quick google, that thing is gorgeous!
I've never seen a RUF before in real life, plenty pictures, I've been told they sound like thunder when accelerating! maybe one day I will hear it....
The CTR3 is a pretty special RUF too, not just a mental big turbo on a normal 911. Only thing which'd trump that in those stakes (imo) is the new Henessey Venom GT... (Jon, it is your mission)
I was in the bus and I saw a 430 Scud and a Carrera GT duking it out. Those screaming engines sounded heavenly, even over the drone of the bus. Totally made my day.
Saw a Rolls Royce Phantom 6, this one http://www.rrocwa.com/Illustmodels/phantom6.jpg just parked randomly on the street. It's freaking huge.
Took a pic with my phone, but this one is the same angle and a lot clearer..
there is a contest on party poker to win a DB9
TVR Tuscan S on Saturday, and what looked like the entire Cheshire branch of the MG owners club on Sunday.
Saw a Porsche 944 and Carerra on the way to work today.
Was having fun with an Audi R8 off the lights the other day. It sounds like sex on wheels <3
Trashed me of course, but I surprised him a bit so he put his foot down
Hubba hubba <3
I did see a Maserati of some sort. I don't know what model it was, though. The front reminded me of the GranTurismo, but looked older (Maybe because if had nasty a off-white color?
I also saw a older Mustang (Also in a nasty off-white).
And a BMW M5 (E39) In a very nice color (Aspensilber, same as my 523i ).
A Lotus Esprit Turbo in British Racing Green with yellow trim and things. In a petrol station. Sounded rather nice as it left, but I imagine it was quite lairy in this wet
Ok, double post, but I figured, it's been 2 days now, let's give it a bump. I went in a pre-production Insignia from the gates at the entrance of Milbrook proving grounds to their skid pan. There I had a play in an Astra SRI (with skid thing attached, quite fun tbh ) and saw a pre-production VXR8 on a skid frame. Which is kinda redundant, considering it's pretty perfect for skidding anyway
And I... think I saw an M3... stopped on a lay-by at the high speed ring. I'm not sure what it was, though, because we were doing 125mph
2010 Saleen S281 Mustang outside a local pub yesterday - Pretty sure half the panels were vibrating as he pulled away...
This thread requires more photographic evidence. C'mon guys, everyone has a camera phone. Wip it out, shap it up, upload it, cheesecake
In my local Tescos yesterday I saw a Corvette that was painted matt black, I think it looked good although not sure i like the wheels
No on the wheels, no on the paintjob. Some cars look good murdered out, this just isn't one of them.
We have 2 Henesseys back in Westminster. The one I did the pic of earlier and a red one. they might belong to friends or family members because they both show up and park together way out in the sticks when they go to Cici's Pizza where I spotted the first one.
Looks pretty cool, but a bit half done. The lights should have been blacked out as well.
I'm not sure. The wheels are definitely wrong, but the paint is not bad... although it just can't beat the matte black GTR *drooling*
