    No pictures but...

    Recently on the M6 toll at about 6:00am pootling along at a ton-ish and saw a few cars in my mirror a good distance back, 10 seconds later a Ferrari F430, Porsche 911 GT3 and a Merc SLR in convoy zoom past at what was pushing 150mph and quickly disappear into the distance.

    Saw a nice DB9 parked outside the local yesterday evening, neighbour regularly has a friend around with a DBS and other neighbour has a reasonably nice dodge viper he recently acquired. Was mint condition until he discovered even the gentle slope of the dropped curb meant he dragged the bottom of the car along the pavement, caused ££££ of damage and he now has to put custom built ramps out every time he wants to get it out the garage!

    Will remember to grab pictures next time.

    Aston DBS is the most incredible thing i've seen up close and personal so far. I'm actually an INSANE CAR FAN. Even bigger than Clarkson.
    Other cars i've seen but haven't managed to take a picture of are V8 Vantage Roadster, R8 V10 Spyder (both in Cardiff) RS6 Avant (LOVE this car) 575 Maranello, SLR McLaren, Galardo Spyder, RR Phantom and a few others.

    Most weekends on the way to work I see an Aston Martin DB9 and an Audi R8.

    The other day I did see a Maserati, Im not sure of the model but it may have been a Grandturismo. It was 2 cars behind me and when I went around the roundabout I only just saw the front and side of it- no name unfortunately

    Aha that reminds me i saw this thing when it was the official press car (used for all the magazines) on the way to Heathrow. It was shortly after Top Gear had finished using it for their road test on the Isle of Wight and back then it was the only one in the whole of the UK and possibly Europe.
    I've never been more excited in my life and at first it thought it was a Murcielago from the noise it made.

    Nissan Skyline GT-R 2010

    I see all sorts of cars from vintage 30's to 2011 round where I live and see them quite often so I had no need to take pictures.

    Here is the picture of the 458 Italia when i was behind it.

    Was in london at the weekend and saw this Ferrari.

    Not sure if it's a 550, 575 or the 612. I THINK it's the 612 but i really don't know. Also, 2 Rolls behind it as well...
