Bentley Bentayga passes the parked Aston Martin Zagato! If we need be in any doubt about the future direction of typical traffic in central London, this is just a quick snapshot of how the morons in TfL are pricing the average motorists out of the capital ensuring that London’s roads are only for the super rich!83938

Forget that. Look at the average speed! Driving it hard through the London streets.
That figure 15 mph is the next target speed limit for London Councils!! Of course I'm joking I hope!!!
To put some prospective on traffic progress and the direction we're going, I use the Westway to get into central London, for those who aren't local this is a flyover that's goes from White City onto the Marylebone Rd which is one of the main roads through London- Westway used to be designated a Motorway with a 70 mph limit, the latest speed limit on this section of 'motorway' is now 30mph with average speed camera signs to ensure adherence!!!!
Essentially these loony left councils and the equally loony TfL look at the car as something elitist and EV or otherwise should be banned altogether, unless of course your Sadiq Khan in which case you can have a chauffeur driven Rang Rover!! As I say for the super rich, they say bring on the road charging, it will keep the presents from cluttering the roads. It's honestly sickening...

That’s not exactly Elephant and Castle is it?
Nope that's Ulster Terrace on the outer ring of Regents Park, whilst I haven't seen any recent valuations, the houses to my left of the picture sell I'm guessing for a minimum of £10 - 15 million hence the cars. It's also the location someone tried to nick my car in January, made all the more interesting by the fact I was getting in at the time!

Car jacking or coincidence you came back as they were attempting

My cousin got carjacked in London 10 years ago , doing OK so she bought a 60k mercedes convertible , sat at the lights with the roof down , car pulled up alongside her , passenger got out , dragged her out of it , drove it off never to be seen again.

No more flash cars after that

If I’m not mistaken that AM Zagato lives in Little Venice spotted it there (or one a lot like it many a time).

Use to see that same Aston when I lived in St John's Wood... well lived in the Danubious Hotel for 2.5 years that is.

That's where I've seen that car! The guy who owns (or used to) own the Danubious is a massive petrol head. Hungarian fella if I'm not mistaken.
He had one when they were a client of mine.

Funny how a even in London a distinctive car is noticed to such a degree that in this small SM community a number of you have not only seen it, but know where it’s located and possibly even the owner. o_O

It’s a daily thing here, not a journey goes by where I won’t see a Maser/Aston/Bentley and this morning an Enzo but that was pulling into Yiannimize

Had the same duplex room on the top floor and as it was paid for by work not too bad given I only had an allowance of £115 per day.

I left at 06:00 and returned knackered at 19:00 each day, so quiet and cold A/C was my only asks... previous hotel was Park International on the A4 in Chelsea... far noisier. Breakfast was always at the office as was lunch and dinner, so just a expensive bed for the night.

Best resu,t was 2.5 years of a apartment in St Catherine's Dock, Star Place... small, but had a kitchen and was mine at the weekend too.
