All black Senna at the “McLaren Triangle” cafe. Looked like it’d driven straight from Le Mans, few sticky bits around rear - GTR to come? 😎
what’s the Mclaren Triangle cafe?

It’s a cafe between Longcross and Foxhill’s, where you often see McLaren prototypes parked up. Evo dubbed the route around there the McLaren Triangle. Longcross is used by lots of car mags, so you’ll see cool stuff there mid-week also.
Cheers,

Now I've seen a few around I have decided the model 3 is a horrible looking thing.

Some cars are just very very bland and forgettable, but they don't cause offence and just go unnoticed, however I find the model 3 so bland it's properly ugly.

They had a clean slate to design from, without being constrained by the usual internal combustion engine layout and the best they can come up with is a Ford Fiesta with a massive forehead that someone couldn't be bothered to put a grille on.
Cheers, Harry

Not sure if it was a legit car, but saw this whilst out in my bike earlier. Nice little Porsche 550 Spyder

The next Fast & Furious movie is shooting in Edinburgh just now and one of my mates got pics of this weird Charger thing that looks like it’s running a mid mounted Hellcat engine.

Ohh shame they didn’t get a pic of the gear knob, I wonder how many 10’s of gears it has.

Must say I’d quite like one right now after doing 500 miles today. All I’m lusting for right now is a big comfy armchair which my hotel room is lacking. And my mattress is hard as a fucking rock. I’d kill for a Cadillac seat right now :lol:

Saw a Fisker Karma (or whatever the new version of it is) last night in central London, looked awesome in black. I considered running down the road after it to get a photo, but didn't do that.

New 8 Series today, looked very nice, also a small Bentley saloon that I hadn't seen before.

pretty sure Bentley don’t make a small saloon. The mulsanne and flying spur are both huge (longer than an S Class, presumably shorter than a Stagea).

Very odd, looked at pictures and nothing matches.

That’s the new faster and therefore more efficient replacement for these.

Interesting spot near me recently:

Image

From a DVLA reg check, it is apparent it is a (very nice) backdate - it does also have a '3.2' sticker in the rear window if you look closely.

Also slightly puzzling in that it is apparently a 1984 (so very early 3.2 Carrera) but not registered until 1991. On that basis I'd assume it was re-registered on import but you can also see that its RHD which presumable means mostly likely a Cyprus (C98) car.

There's also an Allegro hiding in the back of shot so a double spotted :lol:
