    MC 20 Engine Teaser

    Devil’s advocate - 997 Turbo? Obviously I’d prefer the Maser as it looks and sounds better... but the Porsche does the GT/4 seat thing well.

    So - what to choose?

    The other thing to consider is that DB9s aren’t particularly rare, which is suppressing values. There was an ex-Walkinshaw family DB9 on below average miles and in excellent nick for mid-30s before Covid; I couldn’t believe it. An Aston specialist explained that there’s just so much choice at...

    So - what to choose?

    Far more DB9s around than mint Saffs. Arguably more people want a Saff than a DB9 too...

    Much waft https://www.historics.co.uk/buying/auctions/2020-07-18/cars/ref-86-1992-bentley-continental-r-jt/ I’d much rather a QPV GTS but this is a lot of car for the money https://www.historics.co.uk/buying/auctions/2020-07-18/cars/ref-66-2014-maserati-quattroporte-dl/ White is a bit too...

    The Outdoor cooking/BBQ/Smoking thread

    Smoking ban destroyed the appeal. Ah, I’m sat outside, in the rain... while everyone’s inside... Must admit the recent sun had me hankering after a Cohiba, some Hine and a porch...

    The Outdoor cooking/BBQ/Smoking thread

    Buy a couple of blocks of Feta Cheese. Buy a fair bit of Parma ham. Divide the blocks of Feta Cheese in to credit card sized chunks, but the same thickness (if you get me). Wrap these chunks in Parma ham. Put them over the grill until they look as sunburnt as a ginger in light sunlight. While...

    Granturismo S to Aston Martin V12 Vantage S - Madness?

    I’ve seen this car up close. It’s quite a bit of kit. And for what it is, what it represents and the differences from the production version, not overpriced imo. https://www.nicholasmee.co.uk/car-sales/9914365-aston-martin-vantage-rs-the-concept-car/

    How does one get an HGV licence anyway? Asking for a friend

    Ferrari 812 Superfast

    I should love it, but it and the F12 leave me a bit cold. For the price of that (fully optioned) there’s a 599 manual at Bramley. But even then I’d be thinking 550 Maranello or 612 Scaglietti with change for other toys. I also echo his thoughts on carbon fibre trim pieces, particularly on the...

    The good morning thread

    Car more than makes up for it. Adrian at Alfa Aid has kindly lent it to us for a few days. It’s even better than I thought it would be. Twice in two months, that... As for me, I’ll be writing books on a retainer, but able to lance the free for other titles too, so will probably be infusing...

    The good morning thread

    Returning to some sort of normality work wise. One and a half days writing, rest of the week shooting/travelling to shoots. Peterborough to Maidenhead to Wales to Derbyshire to Peterborough to Maidenhead to Guildford to Peterborough over this week. Get to drive one of my dream cars (an SZ) and...

    Crazy price for a ghibli cup in a very sorry state

    Sorry I should have clarified that - the 75 Cloverleaf I drove was an Alex Jupe fettled machine to fast road spec. I’m expecting the SZ to be different (I’m driving one this week, as it happens), but not quite as different as a normal 75 would be.

    Maserati Peterborough is no more....

    Yeah. It's gone now. Did find a Peugeot 306 GTi-6 with an interior in disarray at the back of the pound, the last time I was there...

    Maserati Peterborough is no more....

    Looked empty when I went by the other day. Cars still on the forecourt, including a lovely grey GT Sport (I think)
