    One of my customers has one and I have had the privilege of driving it on a couple of occasions on a closed track and road, rather nervously I must admit :eek:

    Nice in red .. Didnt realise how few there were. Years ago I met one of the sales guys originally selling them. He had some stories about meeting Sheiks etc

    This or x14 Brabus G Wagens is the big question on my mind at the moment.

    We'll I never realised they were now worth over 6 mill when I drove it I knew it was worth over a mil but now I can say I have driven a 6 million pound car :)

    We'll it is good and it does feel incredibly special very much like an F1 car with pace and poise and a awesome soundtrack but he has over 20 super cars including lambos, konesig, veyron etc

    The main thing that shocked me was when it needed a new battery McClaren sent two technicians from the factory to fit it and it was a full days work :-0

    The joys of owning this type of car I suppose but we'll beyond my wildest dreams
