The old man came round and demanded a picture while I was cleaning the car. He was chatting about it all and how he signed off every stage personally and how he cocked up because he doesn't have a sin

At last!! - A parking space for fat blokes that like to BBQ.

@C8RKH totally agree. MP4-12C is near perfection. Perhaps the side air intakes are a bit unresolved but I cannot really fault it, looks-wise or driving-wise. 

The 570 and 540 are particularly clumsy in light colours, the front 'bumper' swoosh under the headlamps just don't work. This is hidden more on darker colours. The 570/540 other problem is they don't have the trick suspension of the Super Series cars.

650S: same sexy back as the 12C but aggressive front. Looks like a mock-up design study to me.

720S: amazing and better in the flesh but too edgy for me (design). 

The good news on 12C is that independents are coming on-stream to do servicing and to fix large ticket items at much more bearable prices. Once this ramps up, the 12C will very quickly become the 2nd hand McLaren to own. B&C are service agents for McLaren, so whilst they cannot totally by-pass the franchise fixes for repairs, B&C are always thinking about the customer and finding ways to be flexible.

There some temptingly priced MP4 12c's out there and like with the early Evora, these cars will have had the factory fixes, recalls all done and all should now have the 616bhp power and Iris 2 with the sorted out Nav and Bluetooth and the door fixes.  So, they should be good buys. I do look but I think the wife would kill me and I'm not prepared to get rid of my Evora 410 Sport for one.

But then, stick two four post lifts in the garage (I have the space and headroom) and well, what's not to like!   hahahahaha......

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

I came across this:

106354378_101820244929816_822253212436752667_o.jpg.1c230a35b759c432b54e934382cbf6e2.jpgn"t it?

Looks familiar, doesn't it? Anyone care to guess what it is?

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Indeed, a Heron. I had never heard of those. Apparently there was a version with pop-up headlights to. That definitely looks a lot like an Esprit!

Not sure I can actually like it or not...

Love the casual driving styles, no helmets, cigarette in hand.

There is some lotus content, but you'd be hard pushed to sport it. Couple of Mk 2 Lotus Cortinas - cars no 19 & 32.

Slightly off topic I know, but for those that watch Harrys Garage over on Youtube which I highly recommend BTW, he's just done a video on the latest Porsche Turbo, its worth a watch and highlights quite nicely what I like about Porsches and equally, why I would never get one!

Don't be too hasty to judge guys...they maybe just wanted to get her outside to get her number 🤣

Who could blame them if they did 😛 , those little fords sure seem to be popular Euro Cars, I wonder if it's the price?  Or if it's because the car culture in that environment allows for a solid base to mod from.  I see a few in my area, but not nearly the following I've seen in Europe for the Focus

Reckon that's fair. It highlights why the two cars exist in the same lineup really. One is for the adrenaline, the other is to carry a chunk of that driving pleasure but trade some of the raw excitement for usability. I couldn't daily an Exige (though I accept some brave souls do!), I can happily daily an Evora.

Eurgh. People need to calm down slapping JPS colours on everything, thinking it would look good. That said, it's not the most elegant car to begin with, in profile.

 

@Gordon S 's 430 Cup though, now that's a looker.
