$250k looks good value against what it would cost to be able drive one on A8!

Hmm yeah, now I’m not sure. Whichever McLaren it was, it was gorgeous.

 Edit: After consulting the google machine on the interwebs, I am persuaded to believe @Neilson. 570S Spider looks to be the model I saw. Very nice ride. I just need to save up ~$250K US and I could nab a new one. 😜

@ oldman  Now down to the nitty gritty . Please tell me you tried to race that cat ! Please tell me you revved your engine & took that cat in the quarter mile  🙏😂

They go into( ad seg ) administrative segregation  that's a special cell with no running water & they don't come out till it comes out of them

I do apologise Neilson for the look up and Oldman for accusing him of driving a naff car

Back in the mid 80's the house I lived in owned a Mini. Every weekend some drunken pr@ts would lift the front end and turn it 90° to the road. The thing only worked with a hill start so this was a real pain. Luckily their was no such thing as a traffic warden in North Belfast. :)

Had a 67 Austin Healy Sprite. Talk about a car that  was easy to move. A slight breeze could push that thing across the yard. 🤣 

And speaking of hard to start. You haven't known pain until you've tried to keep dual, single barrel SU carburetors in tune. I don't know how many times I've sprayed starter fluid down those babies. And constantly filling the dashpot oil. And don't get me started on the electrics. Completely unreliable.

 All that aside, I loved that car, but alas, I needed space in the garage for family cars when the kids came along and I found a friend who was more than happy to take it off my hands.

@Nelson, I didn’t get a chance to race the 570S. Sorry.

I also did not get a chance to race the VLF Force 1 V10 that I encountered on the highway. (No safe way to snap a photo. Googled this one.)

745HP 8.4L V-10
$300K US if anyone wants one...

✌️😎
