I know it’s in a show room, but I wandered past this beauty in Mayfair today.



Trust me, the photo does not deliver the full effect.

Sadly what’s been seen, can’t be unseen!
And here's what you could have had...



Takes some doing to make such a pretty car look that bad but cheapo blue paint, red seats and wheels from a 90's Honda seem to do it.

So for an F40 homage they choose a Portofino?

Sorry that just looks horrific.
It’s worse than that. (Btw when I called it a beauty there was irony involved)

Some more from Tokyo...



Slammed and stanced Huracan...






Brabus of some kind...




Plenty of 695 special editions in Tokyo, but this Rivale seems to be one of the rarest...

1935 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Saloon
Coachwork by Barker & Co Registration no. BYU 155 Chassis no. 36UK Engine no. SW35

Sold for £75000 at auction in 2015

Bonham's blurb said:
Belonging to the final ('UK') batch of Phantom II production, chassis number '36UK' was ordered new by Sir George Macpherson-Grant of Ballindalloch, Elgin, a member of the famous whisky-distilling dynasty, Grant's, and owner of one of Scotland's finest herds of Aberdeen Angus cattle. Bodied as a saloon by Barker & Co, '36UK' is one of only 11 Phantom II Continentals built on the long-wheelbase chassis, a variant even more expensive than the short-wheelbase version, and incorporates typical features such as the 12x41 high-ratio rear axle; five-plate road springs; F-type steering column; a second spare wheel in the nearside front wing; and six Ace wheel discs. As a late Phantom II, it also has the four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the upper three gears. The car retains matching numbers - registration, chassis, engine - and is featured in Raymond Gentile's book, The Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental (page 80).

'36UK' was imported into the UK in 2012 from Indiana, USA and has since been restored to former glory, the restoration costing its owner in excess of £70,000. The associated bills are on file and the car also comes with a current MoT certificate and V5C registration document.
It's one of 281, so reasonably rare...

And far cooler way to travel around London / region in reality. For paltry money compared to much of the hyped metal the thread throws up.
This for commuting over anything less than five feet high please.

I’m the absolute opposite. Never understood the attraction. It’s not like BMW don’t make fast versions of their cars themselves. As for a 3 series Diesel estate? Just no.

I should have said petrol Alpina's, agreed on diesels wink
Their cars are a lot easier to live with than an M car.
I've had a couple of M cars and day to day they are too stiff and too "shouty"
The suspension is a lot better resolved for UK roads
The engines usually "out torques" the equivalent M car
Residuals are always better as well
