    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.

    TVR Tuscan S on Saturday, and what looked like the entire Cheshire branch of the MG owners club on Sunday.

    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 :D

    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 :D

    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 :D) 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 ;)

    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.

    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*
