Why?
Urus overhanging the pavement?
Are those not reversing lights?

Just didn't like it.
Cramped, uncomfortable, not particularly quick.
Radio didn't work laugh
I've never driven one, but I sat in a 308GTB at an auction a few years ago. I'm not particularly tall, but my head was touching the roof, so I'd have to have a GTS, and only use it when the weather is good.

Lovely to look at, though.

A46 northbound past Stratford at lunchtime today - yellow Ferrari with the plate 3 OB...looked lovely in that colour, and the arches are still SO good.

...and an (old) 911 with ducktail in Gulf colours driving through Stratford at about 12.30. Only caught a glimpse...

Yesterday on the A3, on the way home from work a black Carrera GT, first time I've seen one in the flesh, I heard it first and noticed something up ahead, couldn't quite make it out at first until I got closer, it looked and sounded amazing.

Saw one of these today. Didn’t know they existed.

PBB Design St Tropez.

The one and only time I've seen one was at Castle Combe Supercar Test Day around 1990ish.
If it was a blue one that you saw, we must have been there on the same day. I had a nice chat with Paul Bailey the designer, I really liked it, not so impressed with his "PBB Monaco" Jaguar XJS conversion.

"testarossa monospecchio" somehow sounds so much more glamorous thumbup

Not a car, but still quite interesting. Spotted in Wales today,

A Carver one? Don't think I've ever seen one before.

They have a knack for that -
Maserati Quattroporte sounded so much more sporty than “Maserati four door”

Great photos as always Peter. Has this F40 got a 51 reg? How is that possible?

Not the first time that question's been asked biggrin. Although I'm not sure we ever got to the bottom of it.

I would guess it was just simply unregistered for several years from new. Remember it was born into the financial boom time when people were buying all sorts of stuff and hiding it away as an investment. Plenty of new, unregistered, zero miles Ferraris were put away by investors, but most didn't survive past the bust of the early 90s.
