    The only angle i really recognise them from is the back, from memory they've got that lovely central quad exhaust.

    It does look a little McLarenesque from the front.

    I'm not too hot on supercars....

    We get all the snazzy cars in Hatfield don't we marmite ;)

    I was in work early one day this week and all of a sudden all the windows in the building started shaking and there was this almighty rumbling coming from outside. I joined the small crowd at the window to watch some goon reversing his Gallardo into a space in the car park. Five minutes of inching back, inching fowards and rasping exhaust notes later he got out. Left the engine running though with the gullwing doors open for all to see while he checked the gaps all around the car.

    What a tosser :)

    Was it a Turquise one?
    It wasn't a Gollardo it is a Murcielago and it belongs to a guy there called Clive!

    Saw a silver Murcielago on the way to work this morning parked ny the side of the road in Haslemere in Surrey.

    There's another on i see regularly with the number plate D14 BLO.

    It used to be on a Diablo i'm assuming belonged to the same fella!

    Did that Zonda have the plate C12 UFO on it? Looks very much like the EVO editor's car.

    marmite, is it Hatfield Porsche you work at? One of our managers bought her silver 2003 C4 Cabrio from there last year.

    Weirdest place I ever saw a supercar was Lambo gallardo at tesco in Westhill (near Aberdeen) and this 45 year old drably dressed reasonable overweight woman got out to do the shopping...
