    You're learning to drive in a Cupra!? I had a 1.6 Ford Focus and a 1.4 Golf to learn in, god damn it.

    I went back to Hexagon for a quick chat about the Porsche - they want £1m for it, but they'll throw in the £90k Z8 if you pay within a week.

    Sounds like a deal to me, something for the week (Z8) and something very special for the weekend :D

    I learnt to drive in a Fiat 500, was great fun.

    My response to the Focus RS fondness. This is my 'normal car' passion.

    I saw one last week. It was parked next to a dumpster, behind a sh*thole of a building. No idea what it was doing there

    Oh yeah I also saw two GTRs, two Gallardos, three R8s, a 430 convertible and probably a few others in the last two days. The Grand Prix week end is just insane :hehe:

    A middle age dude on a 26" bicycle with a gas engine. Where did I put my Schwinn cruiser 5?

    Yes, but what if you're completely wrong?

    On the way back from Manchester today saw a Triumph Stag, TR6 and TR8 (all red) travelling in convoy. Damn, I want a TR6...

    Saw an SL65, makes a hell of an engine note.

    Well from an objective view. Admittedly it looks like a sedan ran into a 911 which was then back ended by a boxter. But I have to admit, it's still pretty snazzy. Even if it looks horrendous aesthetically, somehow it's still classy.

    Not exactly on the road, but I saw this beauty at Silverstone the other week:

    [​IMG]

    The new 2012 Lamborghini Aventador - the replacement for the Murcielago. Want. Oh god I want. Please excuse the jaunty angle, had to reach around a barrier and a few people to get the picture.

    Also there were GT3 spec SLSs, those things sound exactly like RR Merlins. Who'd have thought the Germans would make a car that sounds like that? :p

    The aventador is simply stunning as a car.

    By far though my favorite is the R8/R10 (not the race car) just because the exhaust note is so delicious.

    Hilariously though, I did see for the 2nd time a Diablo and three more F430 convertibles. Why are they convertibles? I have no idea, all i know is that the Diablo has a horrible sounding engine and all of the F430s and Bentleys around here are driven by middle aged men.

    Dark grey Aston Rapide and a Ferrari 612 on the way back up from Download yesterday. Couple of really cool older cars down there too, a few old minis and few really snazzy VW campers.

    You lucky lucky *****ard. I had to learn to drive in a Rover Metro. I'd have killed for a Micra.
