Not sure, but I think that car might be made of that new fangled carbon fibre stuff.
Nah it's just lots and lots of pinstriping tape...
Damn... that's a rare sight indeed - and surprisingly mucky. Can't imagine there are many Koenigs in the UK.
If, as it appears to be, that's a Koenigsegg ONE:1, they only built 6 plus a prototype.
MOT checker says it is, although it's got a criminally low mileage (8386) for a car built to be driven
Then there's the electric car meetup in the background - 2 Teslas & a Nissan Leaf
Yep that's a proper bit of kit, incredible spot.
Best I've seen in the last couple of years was a Pagani Huayra on the A494 going into North Wales, couldn't take a picture as I was on my bike, but it made a great noise.
I posit that 8k+ miles puts it amongst the higher mileage Koenigseggs on the planet.
Nothing beats the sound of a big, naturally aspirated V12.
Probably, still a bleedin' crying shame none the less
That's my manor. The best I've managed is a selection* of McLarens on the A55 west of there during my daily commute.
* Single cars in multiple different colours on successive days, back in the "before times".
Very true, shame the Huayra is twin-turbo. Still sounded incredible mind.
Long time since I last read about the Huayra, forgot about the blowers...
I believe it is, and I think they're currently priced around £5 million....
I know it's not the real deal, but it's still kinda cool
Took a trip to The Cave (retro computer museum) again today and spotted some sporty little numbers in the car park.
Caterham 7 - I thought this guy was gonna park in a motorbike bay at first!
Lotus Exige - such a pretty car…
Mmmmmm, that Exige air intake.... One followed me home on the bypass a couple of nights ago, what a beast!
Our LAN host has a GBS '7' type car that he built himself including DIY Megasquirt fuel injection, it's a great for a Sunday morning blast in the country
couldnt get the camera out quick enough but had a classic Jag-E-type and a Ford GT40 growl past both in full racing livery. I made faces.
