    A Ferrari 458 Spyder
    Or rather _the_ 458 Spyder in the country. The one bought with presumably dirty money...
    Sadly, it was coming my way at night, so I saw headlights thought "Ferrari 458", then saw taillights...

    Drove the other way past an F40 down a narrow backroad, not sure it's the right place to be taking a ferrari to be honest.

    Also, not one but two Lotus Elises parked along the same street. They used to be really common around here (indeed there used to be a Lotus dealership only 10 mins away) but they seem to have gone the way of the dinosaurs recently.

    I was heading north along the M42 the Bond Bug was heading south along the M40.

    If you're behind a 44T HGV then unless you're driving a Chieftan (or similar) tank you don't generally attempt a 'drive through' :D

    - Ferrari 348
    - 2x Celica GT-Four ST205's
    - Cute "little girl racer" driving a sporty gunmetal grey Aurus T180 with the reg "M155 A0K" on aftermarket rims with a bodykit and tinted windows. Her 175BHP pretty much left me for dust as she overtook me and the slow moving vehicle I was stuck behind!

    All in one day! The two 205's looked awesome - one was white and looking fairly standard and well cared for, the other was red and was decked out in what I'd call full race trim with black wheels, TRD skirts & spats, a splitter and a rear roof spoiler/visor. Beauty :)

    Very true! Though I have seen many cars and vans try this and very few live to tell the tail. :)

    I saw one of these at the weekend:

    [​IMG]

    58 reg so it could have been second-hand. The driver was pootling around Leeds, showing off, so I reckon he'd only just bought it. It looked totally impractical and this was born out by Dave showing the Top Gear episode where the team bought "track day" cars, including the X-bow, and then used them for commuting. Not the best car for mid-winter motorway driving.

    Which is a shame, because I'd want one, just for the insanity of the thing.

    a Toyota 86 in a shop window.
    A client of mine is sales rep at Subaru, so I am waiting for them to get their BRZ before I go for a test drive
