The McLaren Speedtail, not sure where he was going after Brangwyn Hall but, just wow, 106 in the world and Swansea has one. I know Mr TCW is a bit of a controversial figure among some residents but he grafted to get to where he is and as a car fan I'm not complaining about him driving any of his cars around haha

What’s the plate? Looks like STA IL which would be rather good but it’s not showing!

Yeah it was actually STAIL, doesn't come up on Gov.uk so I'm guessing it was a demonstrator from McLaren. He does a lot of business with Tom Hartley but I dont see a blue Speedtail on their stock list or sold

Probably because he bought it from McLaren.

No less than three Audi R8s today, white with the wide offset red/orange stripe near Laleston, blue in Porthcawl, and a grey one on the seafront. Also Audi RS4 Avant in Nardo Grey.

Also saw a ground-hugging old VW Beetle in Porthcawl.

Saw a Corvette in Cardiff Bay this morning, had just come out the tunnels. Was white, reg was possibly LD16, couldn’t see. Never seen one in the flesh, it looked really good. Also a royal blue Vantage parked behind me in Penarth, absolutely gorgeous colour

I know he bought a Senna (which I believe Tom Hartley has / had) from new so I'm guessing he just got an allocation from McLaren. Must be a very early car though as I haven't seen any pics of other UK cars yet.

Smiled over (well he was looking as well) at a lovely red Ferrari 458/488 Heading towards M4 J34 on the 40mph duals at Talbot Green. Think the police three series was also watching us both.

Also a white 911 near Cross Inn.

Tom Hartley have only had the Senna recently, I believe the Senna was supplied by McLaren Glasgow originally.
