    It Was Vewy Vewy Qwiet

    I was on the M3 motorway this morning heading to work. As I approached the M25 junction, I was travelling in the middle lane. Looked in the drivers side mirror and noticed a gun metal grey (matt black look not shiny) coloured Lotus Elise looking type car? at first, I thought it may have been a new style Lotus Elise. It also had no plates on the front.

    Anyway, it looked really nice and I was expecting it to roar past me with a sweet sounding engine note of some kind. It eventually caught up with me in the outside lane, but their was no sound at all? it just glided pass me as if it had the engine turned off.

    It was vewy vewy qwiet.

    As it overtook me, I glanced over and it was one of those Tesla things with a red and white plate in the back window. It did look good though

    I was in the middle lane as I was going towards London and had to stay on the M3. If I stayed in the left lane, I would have ended up joining the M25 and going to the airport

    Only have 2 choices on the M25 turn off
