    I had no idea what this was until I got really close and overtook it for a better look but ye gods it was sexy. I've seen enough Ferrari's and Lambo's around here that they're fun to see but not as eyepoppingly unusual as a brand new Lotus! I had thought the brand dead until I saw one live and in the flesh a few days ago.

    What've you seen on the road recently that you just had to get a better look at?

    I could have sworn that Bentley had been discontinued a la the Plymouth brand. You've seen one of those on the road? Geez. I guess the current trend really is ressurecting dead monikers. :confused: :)

    New Beetle Convertible. I really love my Tundra, but that Beetle is a fun car to drive. One of these days I'm going to weaken and stop by a VW dealer on the way home and trade my truck in.

    I've seen quite a few really expensive cars in recent times. Passed a Mercedes SLR McLaren on the motorway the other day, which is a proper supercar for those not in the know (£300k+ worth). Saw a Lambo Gallardo in a car park and also a Ferrari 360 Spider like in the earlier post outside my local pub.

    My best recently though has to be whilst driving home on the M1 from work and being overtaken by a black jag containing Tony Blair (he's the Prime Minister of Britain) in case you non brits don't know ;)

    A new Ford GT passed the end of my road as I was turning in just the other day, I seriously could not believe my eyes.

    Dead monikers?! You're kidding surely? Bentley has been around for years and has continued to be strong. They'll never go out of business as long as there are gangsta rappers about surely...lol... ;)

    All we have in this neck of the woods are blah Mercedes/Lexi/Beamers and butt-ugly Hummers. About the nicest looking car I ever see is a Mini Cooper or a Prius.

    there's one of those parked about 5 spaces down from my parking spot. :D
    hmm.. what else.. there's a Bently parked across from the office (owner of the sheraton hotel). I see my friends R34 Skyline about twice a month, but i dont think that counts.

    I saw one of these fella's the other day, and was rather smitten. :)

    For those not in the know, it's a Nissan PAO ;) I totally love it's utilitarian simplicity, and attention to design. :)

    Infact I like it so much... I've dropped the idea of getting it's cuz the Nissan Figaro, and have started trying to source a PAO in Japan to import over. :D

    Nissan Figaro's are really cool. I love them but don't you think that driving around in one you might look a little......well.....gay? ;)

    Well.....alright, i'll forgive you for being caught up in the moment. They are damn sexy cars. I've always had a thing for the GT40 so this was obviously going to appeal to me.
