Did any of you see Top Gear on Sunday and that german supercar the Gumpert (what an awful name!).

Anyway, near where I live there's a garage selling nice cars. You wouldn't expect cars like that where it's situated - out in the countryside on the outskirts of Derby. But usually, there's at leats one Ferrari, a few Porsches etc.

Today I went past (still fuming after my incident with a motorist - see here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... highlight=) and hey-presto, a red Gumpert on the forecourt.

Not something I figured I'd see... here it is in the garage's website:

this is their claim on the website: "THIS IS POTENTIALLY THE ONLY ONE AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE TODAY"
