    Just got smoked by a Ferrari 575M Maranello

    I was driving along the Dual Carriageway today and the 575M Maranello that was behind me decided to put the foot down

    ***** it was fast, past my stupid little 1.6 8v in the blink of an eye, oh what a lovely V12 roar

    It's only the second Ferrari i've ever seen on the road.
    Astra SRi Turbo

    Really?!!

    I lived in the Docklands for a while - Fezzas everywhere!
    Also lived near a Ferrari dealers in Surrey - Used to seee them all the time.

    Oh and my inlaws had a 355 which I drove a few times - The V12 ones sound better though.

    A bloke up the road hired 3 lambourghini murcielago's for his wedding and at 1am at night he was ripping one off em up and down my road! bloody even tho I couldnt sleep, just loved watching it from my window ... the engine was nuts!

    See one every day around here. Rarris, lambos, astons, TVRs. A fella that works in a department of my company down the road has a DB9 - lovely car!.

    Drove a 575, 355, 360 and a 328. Impressive, but don't do anything for me. Ugly things... Also drove a Gallardo, nice car and doesn't look too bad either, not a huge fan though.

    Astons and TVRs are a different story - 1977 Vantage V8 mmmm

    If it wasn't for my mates dad I would never see cars like that. Took me out in his 430 and that was scary.

    also got his M5 up for sale if anyone has £56k burning...? £16k loss in 9 months, be good to have that sort of money to waste!

    I put a thread up a while ago after a lambo meet down in Brighton, a good few hundred lambos, a few Rari's and a Xonda too.


    And btw, since when was a Rari called a Fezza?? Is'nt a Fezza a F**D Fiesta?
    From the Southeast? Find your next meet here
