There's a McLaren F1 in this vid.
Bet it wasn’t as good as the Project 8.

Always loved the Conti T, had one in my top ten garage since I was a kid.
An absolute unit

Always felt they looked out of proportion compared to the R. Mate at school's uncle had the first Continental R in the UK, I still remember sitting in it the day it was delivered. Never seen anything like it.

Lovely. A perfect upgrade from my W124 ;)

I'd forgotten how awesome that dash is, and the 590lb/ft :lol:

Nice little video.

Wasn’t that fussed about the XJ220 when it first came out, but I saw one at Goodwood a few years ago and my opinion changed. I thought it looked really cool and it’s actually not a big car.

The 360, again, not my favourite Ferrari V8s but the silver manual looks great with buckets.

Good collection:

Yeah it's his driveway. Used to enjoy his updates, 'tis a shame he's not still around.

:shock:

60mm wider than a RR Wraith
10mm narrower than an F-150
It's GIGANTIC.

XJ220 was my dream car until I had the "misfortune" to see one parked between an XJR-15 and an Enzo, since then it's been the Manatee of supercars to me.

I’ve raided Mike’s new shed to find the goods.

When I was a kid my uncle was selling an XJ220 in his garage. It was in some big air filled plastic bubble, but to me it just looked crazy low, wide and long... a big low slab of a car. I was in awe of it.

At the time, I remember by contrast he had an F40 sat out in the rain with all the rest of the stock that didn't make the showroom. :shock:
