    I like the old BMW. Makes me feel old as I remember those driving around! :D

    I like the GT-R too actually - looks like it doesn't hang around. Any idea what power it was running?

    I still have a hankering for one even though hell will freeze over before I buy one.

    You know what John, of all the cars there it was the BMW I was drawn to. I drove by it on the way down and liked the look of it, a couple of hours later I saw it parked up at TV! It was in good used condition, so is being used which I like. Reminded me of one my Dad had around 35 years ago!

    Not sure what power the GTR was but was quite a few mph behind me before his front splitter ripped off and finished his day.

    That one
    A few more bonnet vents might have helped it stay on.

    The car looked faster than it was. There was a normal looking white GTR there that was quicker.

    It's definitely a cool car and an iconic shape for me. A car you could recognise easily very quickly.

    Haha nice one. Nothing like sticking it to the man.

    I'll never understand the point of making a car look faster than it is - you just get shown up...

    Gutted I couldn't make it in the E55. For a moment I thought I'd bring the S-Class but from a few early reports I gathered it would have been a bad idea (the car is immaculate and I wouldn't be able to resist running it).

    100%. The GTR is overdone with a cheap-ass bodykit, eBay lights, glued on skirts, "fast" plate and big bling wheels. I'm glad Cyclone1 walked all over it.

    It's something I always enjoyed with the E55K. No one had any idea what it was and most probably thought it was an old taxi oiler.
