    That's Gordon Murray's T27. There was a documentary about it not so long ago, you might be able to find it on iPlayer. Title was something like 'How To Go Fast And Influence People'.

    I don't think it is a T.27, the body is completely different, it doesn't have any windows for a start

    Nope, it's a Renault Twizy, run by DBG as their city-centre support vehicles.

    Thanks for that, nice link too. Turns out their London office is right around the corner from my work. I do wish they would stop parking in our spaces though.

    Unfortunately no piccy but saw a Ferrari FF on the way to Didcot this morning. Having never seen one in person before, the dimensions made it look small to me but I was kinda surprised how big it was. Then on the way home, a lovely black Aston V12 Vantage.

    I saw a vintage Aston Martin the other day. Looked like late 70's early 80's model.

    The FF is the big Ferrari, think of all that luggage space, 4WD etc! V12V is my favourite modern supercar, want.

    Ferrari FF at the local train station. Probably taking public transport because of fuel prices :D
