Spotted down my street in Belsize Park, London... apparently it’s quite a big deal according to a Porsche head buddy of mine wink

The owner has the exact same in white too.

Isn’t it owned by that tiny chap who had a stab at YouTube at one point and was trying to collaborate with a few more established tubers?

Was in West London today



Saw this GT black series today outside one of the hotels
(not my photo but I think it's often outside that place)

A lovely cream coloured Vantage S rumbling along Mount St squeezing between the parked S classes
And a very odd black and white Urus outside the Dorcester

G63 one of the most common cars in the area, I guess if you live there it's the daily runaround!

Seeing fewer and fewer Ferraris around..I think they don't have the bling impact of the SUVs or Lamborghinis

Yes 888MF is his YouTube name. I think he may have sold the white version now.

In regards to his videos, I like them as he’s not as in your face as the great majority.

I think MI55 GTS on an Ferrari, possibly an 812 of some description?? Under the Wooden Bridge roundabout in Guildford today while taking the Roma out for a new year's (running the engine in still!) drive.

One of my all time favourite cars. Simply stunning. Italian flair with simple, reliable American V8 engineering. The guys who look after my TVR here in the UK did a restoration of one a few years ago (a GT5/GTS I think) and i loved drooling over it !!! Your car looks beautiful and I love your story of turning a lovely but (to you at the time) un-useable car into a car you love jumping into and driving regularly. Well done!!

L555GTC Ferrari GTC4Lusso spotted this morning around 630am at Elephant & Castle. Was in the Honda Civic instead of the Roma today as weather was rubbish so no light/flashing or waving although was ahead of me so wouldn't have seen anyway.

that is very cool. I wish I could afford a Zonda. Wonder why it is on UK plates now [did he sell it?]

Attended two car meets in Los Angeles, this morning. At the second one, I was parked next to a Lexus LFA. I can't say I like its aesthetics but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I'd still take my Pantera.

Got to agree with you there ,the Pantera is timeless,fits in whether a classic or super car show .

Apart from the sound of the V10 the LFA doesn't do much for me,very nice but should be more than just very nice .

Called into Goodwood some years ago and there was a Lexus corporate day with around eight to ten LFA's there,

this is when they were new cars and all of them got black flagged for being over the decibel levels and had to short shift

all day to avoid being thrown off the circuit.shame screaming at top revs is where they sound the best.rolleyes

Only got to hear the engine for a moment as it was leaving, I'm afraid my Pantera at idle already violates California's decible law. Fortunately when I've been next to Police vehicles at a stoplight, they've been more interested in talking about the car than citing me, so I haven't had any issues yet.

The LFA is just ugly imho. It looks like it was put together by a committee none of whom were in the same room. One seems to say, "let's add a scoop here, another, let's make the car upright to accomodate passengers, still another said, "we need more vents, let's add some more." It's just not a coherent design and certainly not worthy of its running gear. It appears to look like a 20 year old Celica that's been custom uglified.

Unfortunately it’s a typical Japanese design, as in as ugly as hell.

The Italians do design brilliantly, everything LOOKS great. That’s not to say that their electrics are good, though we here in the UK had Lucas , nuff said.

I love the lfa and think it looks great. I actually think the pantera has aged terribly, it just looks like a kit car now. There is something not quite right with the windscreen angle and the rear quarter window is odd.

The only time my dear neighbours politely complained about them having to rush to save their ornaments

from vibrating themselves to the floor is when i started either of my Pantera's , being use to me by now having noisy antisocial

cars including my 32 hot rods that run straight from the headers this is the first time they have said anything ,being a good neighbour i

pushed the the cars further away from their living room windows and tried to start them as quietly as i could especially when they cut out

and die before getting warm , Wasn't keen on Jap stuff until my son bought the noisest (in a nice way ) R33 VSpec Skyline with 575bhp ,

very special car ,felt more European than Jap with bags of character, that was another one for the neighbours to complain about rolleyes
