    Easy, it's a mobility scooter with a rain cover on for you know, UK weather.
    Found it, it is an Effedi Maranello (ha ha) SCE

    That's not a car, it's a quadricycle and incidentally a complete death trap.

    This guy traded in his M4 for this, a non-competition spec M5.
    Maybe he just had kids.

    I think this is that hillclimber we all know and love?

    Was digging through my 2016 Goodwood FOS photos...
    There it is! The Renault Laguna BTCC.

    Any guesses??
    2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS most likely.

    Could be a GLS63, but I think the location/size/shape of the tailpipes are the tipoff that it's not an AMG

    I’m sure it’s been posted before, but I don’t remember the last time I’ve ever seen one. (US)

    I spotted this crossing from France to Italy in 2007, and the more I look at it, the more I think it’s the Ruf RK coupe from the game. Any expert opinions? 


  • HeissRodHeissRod Member Posts: 4,710 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yep, certainly looks like the RK

    I knew it was something pretty special at the time, which is why I got the pic. It was gone very very quickly

    Driving back from Cornwall today and stopped at the Haynes Motor Museum as my boys really wanted to go there. Could have taken dozens of pictures: Corvettes galore including C5, El Camino SS, Dodge Viper RT/10, Escort Mexico, replica Jag XKSS, replica Jag D-Type, replica GT40, the list was huge. However, as far as I’m aware no-one has posted a first-hand picture of an XJ220. If not, do I win this thread? 

    And that’s only an E-Type, 911 and Miura in the background. 
    I might be wrong, but behind the 911 that's a De Tomaso Pantera (not a Miura) and behind it possibly a Ford GT 40 (replica). 
    But anyway: A great shot of the fine XJ220, I really like that. So far, never seen one in real life.

    Away for the weekend and saw two classics. My first Mehari in a lovely orange colour which I didn't get a snap of. And this beautiful Karmann Ghia.


  • RWareRWare Member Posts: 520 ✭✭✭✭
    How much mpg?!

    Ok that is truly insane
  • bobdylanbobdylan Member Posts: 3,432 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Has a button on the dash that halfs the power for when its raining.  
    And a launch control. 

    Hasent got it yet but said theres a ludicrous option mode to change the tune to make it shoot flames and give out the constant back fire machine gun effect ... but he said it kills the exhaust 


    (I'd still have it lol)

    Is that a factory model?
  • TGPDTGPD Member Posts: 5,274 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Nah, think he modded it
  • bobdylanbobdylan Member Posts: 3,432 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yup modded. 

    Factory 620s uses a supercharged ford duratec .

    But lots of 0eople are converting to 1.6 EcoBoost. 

    Turns out ford has secret motor sport intentions for the 1.6 EcoBoost so its extremely strong n turntable more so than the 2.0 and above .

    More impressive is its cheep , way cheeper to tune and to fix than the duratec... bog standard fiesta parts and costs then it's super fuel efficient too.


    Think I need a fiesta ST

    It is a replica GT40 right at the back, and you’re right that it’s the Pantera - the Miura was in a different room! 🤦‍♂️

    It’s a modern interpretation of the Porsche 935 ‘Moby Dick’ based on the current GT2 RS

    I was trying to get comedy mileage out of the fact that all everyone is talking about at the moment is the Moby Dick, but clearly I just sounded a bit ignorant! 🤦‍♂️
