I just had the pleasure of seeing my first 918. I don't think the pictures and videos have done this car any favours. The road presence was unbelievable. Hopefully its a local owner as I need to see that one again.
I didn't catch the reg, but it was a dark metallic grey. Outstanding!

I've seen a few in the flesh now, but none yet on the road. It certainly has incredible 'presence' even when static. My favourite colour thus far is one in Guards Red, though I believe there has been a Riviera Blue car in the UK which would most likely take the top spot for me 😀

No, it was driving towards the Kings Arms round about on Knutsford Road. I assumed it was heading to OPC, so I did a 180 so I could stalk it, but no cigar. Tried Alderley Edge to see if it was there, again, no cigar.

Local guy here has one in Mexico Blue (again, the photo does not do it justice). Thumb

He was out again just now. Similar spot as last time, this time on the roundabout. He must live within rock throwing distance from me. It's a 15 reg plate and looking the business. What a legend. Gave him the thumbs up as he came past.
