Couldn't tell if it was a 308 or a 328 (as it was behind me) but it followed me along North Heath Lane in Horsham last night at about 20-15smile

SL55 Project Kahn
Do you want to tell him, or shall I?wink
That is actually an SL600 not a 55 AMG so the plate works nicely. I know this because we have just taken that car in to stock today and spent a good half hour doing an appraisal on it!

It will shortly be on our website:

www.v12online.com
www.projectkahn.com
Fair play - the car looked great in person, the front is spitting image of an SLR but I'm sorry to say I thought it looked rubbish from the rear. It looked out of proportion from the front and was like any other SL55.
Ashley1111 - do you know if there have been any engine mods or are they purely asthetic? You've got my dream job - I bet you get to see some special motors!?! My friend knows the owner and was lucky enough to see the CGT and SLR up close and personal recently. Is it true you have an F1 number plate? I bet it's worth and arm and a leg!
You are right, the rear is a bit weak which is purely due to the width of the car unfortunately. The only engine mods we did to the car was the quad stainless exhaust (sounds gorgeous!) and a re-map from the standard 508BHP to circa 550BHP.

Yeah to get to see, and crucially drive! some really special stuff which makes all the stress and long hours well worth it!

Yep, we bought the F1 numberplate a few months ago for about £475k after taxes etc but I have already been bid nearly three times that already...

If you are ever in sunny Bradford please feel free to drop in, its a good place to while away a spare half hour or so!

To be honest I dont know about the suppliers, manufacturers etc I am just responsible for selling the completed cars. Our sister company Kahn Design supply us (Project Kahn & V12 Power) with any parts that we need whether its a Kahn product (i.e. Kahn RSV alloy wheels for a DB9) or someone elses parts (i.e. Land Rover side steps for a Range Rover Sport) etc. Hope that helps!!

Hi there,

Been in North Devon all week on holiday, and been a bit deprived of any decent cars. Loads of VW Camper vans though !!

Did manage to see a Gallardo this afternoon, a Black Gallardo Coupe with Dark Grey Wheels heading towards Braunton from Ilfracombe on the A361 at about 15.50pm. Reg Plate was LF**JUC.

Regards

Tim

Hi there,

Forgot to add this one. (off topic I suppose, but this is a spotted thread laugh )

Spotted various members of the Jackson family (yes that Jackson family although Michael and Janet were not with them) walking down the high street in Braunton. Saw Tito Jackson, his mum and numeorus minders.

They have just rented a house in Appledore while they find land to have a mansion built nearby.

Heres a report from todays Daily Mail.

Merc place in Wandsworth currently has a brand new SL63 AMG and an CL63 AMG sat outside. Not sure the new front on the SL is better than the old to be honest, but i LOVE the CL. Wouldn't pay that money for one though

Oh and a red Enzo in Richmond last night about 11pm

Hey, the yellow diablo was my new SV. Got it on thursday. So nice to drive. Feels quite different from my Roadster. Was with friends on way to Goodwood. The Oranage GT is in fact my friends amazing replica, which always get more attention than the real ones.

Black Gallardo Spyder in Alderley Edge with the roof down (possibly the same one, not sure)
And another Gallardo parked next to a photography studio thingy





Almost forgot a yellow Corvette too, black stripes, American plates and a spoiler. Can't be too many of them around biggrin
