A good friend of mine has one of these. Proper U.K car with the connoly leather trim.

He's taken me out in it a few times and it makes my Escort Cosworth look like a 1.3 popular!!

I just love the technology in it like the manifold temperature. He got it to read around 1000 degrees :shock: !!

But they have to be GTR's!

My friend took me out in his modified GTR bayside blue one. It scared the hell out of me. G-metre and all. Sounded like some monster was screaming at me through the dashboard. Mad!

Awesome - awesome - awsome!

That is all.

Yeah. The sounds are what it's all about.

Im intrigued. What appeals to you more on the 32 given the huge differences between the two?

If we are on about fast cars, i've been in the passenger seat of a 360 Modena. Stupidly fast and lovely sound. But only 12month old, starting to rust along the bonnet and the small problem of its brakes failing twice :shock:

The R32 is a more light weight machine. Also I think it looks better. :lol:
