funnily enough I can match that. Bit of an odd week.

The Ferrari was a black one and he opened it up in Asda car park - what a glorious noise!

Got nearly run down by the Bentley (ignorant twunt) :evil:

We live near an Aston garage so they're two a penny.

But, to top it all we have a Gumpert at a showroom near us :wink:

Agreed, used to see quite a few modern Ferrari's, Bentley GT's and those Porsche (Audi ?) jeep thing's (which always seem to be driven by twats :roll: ) when i was driving an HGV around the country a few years ago, even seen a few Nobles, (SP ?) modern cars do very little for me, even supercars.

Best sight i had was though was when a Lamborghini Diablo rumbled past me as i was walking down a side street in Warrington, i was on my way to the shops after parking up fo the night, black it was with Ansa exahusts on (it was so close i noticed the stickers on the tailpipes :lol: )

I'm in love with these though

Never seen one in the flesh but would love to, i think it's the most stunning looking car ever made, apparently not nice to drive though, very agricultural, noisy and unrefined but i wouldn't care when it looks like that, it's number one on my list if i win the Lotto .

Here's a cool video of a Miura test drive.

The whine is the transmission noise, normal for one of these, motor is
a transverse V12 mounted just behind the seats with a gazzilion Weber carbs :D

Sounds friggin amazing 8)

A couple of years back it was voted the most beautiful car. By people in the car world. It's not perfect. But there is nothing like. The SV is the one to buy 8)
