its STUNNING, and in one off blue, special commision.

how many times did he rev it today mangel LOL.

but i got my own present today from robin (not like that lol), he annouced he had insured me on it as a named driver on his policy so i could drive it. OMFG i think i drove it today about as much as him, WOW its amazing, steering is really heavy, but im used to power steering.

think he let everyone in the place sit in it, then he got a interview in the arena.

NICE ONE ROBIN!!!!!

hopefully will get some pics, i have vid but not on pc yet, alot of cams going off so someone must have one.

Car and owner were both doing fine. He was like a kid with a new toy and quite rightly so. He let my son have a sit in the drivers seat..........thanks for that Fishy.

I hope he enjoys it and I'm sure he will.

When he wasn't drooling over his Lambo he was feeling his girlfriend arse. It's a tough world Fishy............ :lol:

...and the car looking fantastic - the only way he could keep his hands of it was to attach them to her backside!

i got some pics of the seats and close up of the ital banding in them as reference for my seats, anda shot of karl and fishy inthecar , thats it really.

it was really nice to catch up with karl and robin again shame its been a year! karls car looked bloody stunning inthe sun as usual and i did spenda few mins drooling over it again. fishy tried winding me up with "keep an eye out for a truck" but unfortunately for him after our recent conversations i didnt need to be a mind reader to guess what was coming!

robn was chuffed to bits to get his car delivered today, and was like a kid with a new toy for therest of the day, not going from within 10feet of thecar for the rest of the day!!!

glad to see you finally got what you have been working hard for robin.

He explained to me that he chose not to go down the Countach route because he expected everyone to ask if it was a kit car. He expected to hit a good number of such questioners :baby:

yeah thats was the main reason, and reliability, but a later countach was pretty reliable he was told. i think he made the right choice.

ppl were amazed by the colour, the lambo club owner was so shocked by the whole thing i think, he nearly fell over when robin told him just in convo "oh i will have to read the manual" ,,,"OMG you have the orginal manuals aswell, thats unheard of"

Hi guys!

Thanks for all the kind remarks! :baby:

I'm gobsmacked and can still hardly believe it's real and mine and that I don't have to give it back to its 'real' owner! hahaha

It has been about 5 months of research, organisation and stress but has been totally worth it - I missed out on 2 or 3 real peaches of cars in the process (including a roadster) but I am so unbelievably over the moon with my car!

It is the only one in the world in that colour - it was a special commission costing the original owner
