Bloody hell I can't even tell these new Ferraris apart any more laugh

I stand firm though. The front ends are okay, but the rears are just.....

That is absolutely atrocious. Might be the worst view of any Ferrari ever.

I went to a local meet yesterday and there was some lovely bits, definitely some rarities.

Some nice ones at Caffeine and Machine on Saturday:

GT3 RS... particularly liked the Houndstooth seat centres.



Never sure if a V12V counts as a Supercar, but certainly as exciting as one in my mind!



And to the earlier post, yes all new Ferrari's look the same (see if you can guess which is the 488 and which is the F8...)

Lovely colour on that RS, and silver wheels too.

reminds me a bit of my mate who is trying his best to retain hair despite being very balding. The front half of his head is bald and the back half has to accommodate his entire hairdo.

Its a bit bulbous isn't it, there are better choices. laugh

It had a 2 letter reg on it as well which I guess is probably half the price of the car itself.

It looked like it was heading into Preston of all places as well.
This one I'm guessing.
Can't be many around here.

Bittersweet day on Sunday in a Devon carpark, spotted this on the way in and returned to find some pillock had scraped my bumper and driven off without leaving a note.

Is that a "For Sale" sign in the window?

EDIT: If so it's not up on Autotrader but in the region of £15k seems to be the going rate. Strong money for a 13 year old VW saloon.

It's not just any old '13 year old VW saloon though', is it. The R36 is very rare. I was rather interested by them a little while ago but couldn't find one in the spec I wanted (i.e. every single option), so they were too rich for something with usually a poor spec. Regular Passat R36s (and estates) come up for sale slightly more frequently but again, the spec needs to be good.

It was for sale, didn't pay much attention to the sign in the window so don't have a photo of the details or sellers number but I do recall it was £6,500 which sounds like a bargain compared to AutoTrader!

Oh yeah I wasn't being sarcastic or anything. Just saying how well they've held up!

To be fair as good, and rare, as a Passat R36 may be it isn't a Supercar!

There's another thread running about Supercars and based on that it just isn't.

Oh GOD!

We all know this thread is broken. We also all know that we, for some inexplicable reason, have to accept that the OP's appaling grammar means anyine can do whatever they want with it. The CC is rare. We know it's not a supercar, and we all know what the thread title says, but that's not what the OP meant and for some reason, we have to humour him.

I think it's like primary school sports day, where everybody gets a badge and nobody gets told they fked up.
