I do like the Sagaris, a very purposeful looking car! cool

Are you referring to the slashes on the front wings above the tyres? I heard they were abandoned after road testing as the tyres threw debris up from the road, through the gaps resulting in damaged windscreens. I think some owners have had them cut away as intended and placed mesh underneath to avoid the broken windscreen issues. I am surprised TVR didn't implement the modification at the factory, but then this is TVR we are talking about hehe

Yep, the front wing slashes are just shaped.

In other news, was behind/in front of a really nice 928GTS earlier today. Metallic bronze finish with all the orange lights and reflector bits - very retro-glam.

Just across the road from us there is a 928 specialist - also has 968 and 944s in various stages of decay. I'm tempted to go and nose around just for the nostalgia!

Pulled into the multi storey car park this morning on my way to work and drove past a Mclaren 570S in white - the owner was in the gym me thinks - pure gym borehamwood

Nice looking car - even in white

Got passed on the M1 southbound outside Newry by a convoy of 7 brand new (unregistered) Bentley Bentayga's, doing about 80mph.

That's about £1.14 million blasting by.

I did think to myself "if the lead vehicles loses control, he could take out the other 6...and that would be a bad day for the insurer!"

I was on holiday in the US passing through Monterey CA where a car event was being held.

4 Pagani Zondas lined up in the street all having the nuts revved off them. The sound was quite epic.

I was driving a 6.3l v8 chevrolet tahoe at the time. Which isn't nearly as exciting at it should be with 6.3 litres of V8 under the hood.

Walked by a DB11 queuing up at the Bayswater Shell station last night. Is this new-ish? It does look like its trying to out F-type the F-type. For looks alone, I think I prefer the F-type.

All I saw in Monterey were whales smile however down in Santa Barbara earlier this month and saw some Japanese car that claimed to be fuel-cell powered

Re: Renault 5
When I got my first job way back in 1985 the creative director had one of these. A white one rather than that lovely brown. The art director had a black series 1 Golf GTi.
It was all very 80's back in the 80's

Just back from Neil Garner Motorsport in Kemble, where a TVR meet was held.

I know not everyone loves a TreVoR, but there was some great machinery on show - from an early, original Griffith, via a huge array of 280i, 390i wedges, Chimaeras, Sagarises and Tuscans (and others) to the Cerbera mule containing the full running gear of the recently-announced *new* Griffith. I can confirm to those who haven't heard it that the Cosworth engine sounds really rather pleasant!

Sounds like a great day out. A Sagaris for me please.

Your Jaaag with a big exhaust would fit right in.

We kept speculating as to how the Jag will sound in comparison to the legion of delicious V8's on display today. Time will tell - it's off to Pro Speed in a week... Hopefully, it may spend time in Flea's tender care afterwards...!

I may have posted this a few years ago, but I saw it again for the first time in a long time, parked up near work, a DeLorean. In original trim, no Flux capacitors in sight!

Parked on the road, its even on Google maps in the same place, so it cant be used very much... unless its broken! Surprised to still see it left outside all this time! I think they are worth a few quid now!?
