  1. The most terrifying drive of my life was a Superlight 1600K on packed Belgian motorways, on ACB10s, no windscreen, in the pouring rain.
  2. Damn. I just got this email from Pastorelli. I guess I'm going to have to completely rethink my upcoming garage build: Cristiano Vaccari <[email protected]> 10:02 (2 hours ago) Dear Tim, Thank you for your interest, unfortunately the tile designed for MClaren has been discontinued years ago and we have no more stock available. Please let me know should you need any further information, Thank you and best regards.
  3. I don't know about the MTC, but with the MPC Ron apparently worked out the exact size the internals of the building needed to be to avoid cutting any tiles, and then instructed Norman Foster exactly what size to build it.
  4. If you need to cut the tiles, then your vehicle storage facility is of sub-optimal size.
  5. Have a look at Pastorelli porcelain floor tiles, supplier to McLaren Production Centre. I can't imagine anything better.
  6. The problem is all these cars will presumably be specced and ordered by the dealers and held in stock.
  7. I was told "no discounts" on the Final Edition 390 by one deal. Nothing. Zero.
  8. Looking forward to more, follow request made on insta.
  9. Forgive me being late on this, but just catching up on the purple discussion. I adore purple cars - thanks for the instgram link. I'm about to paint the new bits on my Model T speedster in Lotus Aubergine (the Elise S1 colour, but without any glitter). And I've had two other purple cars in the past. A Smart FourTwo back around year 2000 that was in Lamborghini Viola (the Jay Kay Diablo Colour) and a Caterham R500 K series that was Lamborghini Viola Ophelia. The Ophelia is a really gorgeous colour and one I'd happily have again. My wife has seen McLaren's Amethyst Black in the flesh and says it's utterly beautiful with a staggering depth to it, and I'd certainly get a paint sample of Ferrari Vinaccia to look at before making any future decision. FWIW the purple is a much better idea than pink. Also, loving the shadow chrome paint on your wheels.
  10. Are you planning on getting the gearshift and mechanism black anodised, or are you leaving it as is?
  11. I have a friend who is 6'4" and has a VX220. He's taken his seat off the runners and bolted it straight to the floor, he thinks that's worth a couple of inches headroom.
  12. Lovely car, nice to see silver wheels too. Parked next to an Ro80 I believe. I've a friend who used to own one, apparently owners used to wave to each other in passing - whilst holding up a number of fingers that corresponded to how many replacement engines they'd had fitted under warranty.
  13. I'm of the opinion that Matt Black is a difficult look to pull off successfully, unless you're Batman.
