    Anyone on here ever own the S8 used as the loco on tonight's Top Gear?

    Y668 MRX was the Reg number.

    What a bunch of daft eejuts they really are...

    werent it V16?

    stunning all the same.

    Also wasnt atkinsons time faster than vettels albeit in a slightly faster car? correct me if im wrong.

    The trains for me was a bit predictable it was alright but seemed too false for me to get excited about. Was amusing at times though.

    Thats it. Not sure where I got 19 from. lol

    Atkinsons was very very quick.
    He's a Mclaren F1 for 14 years and lent it to top gear. thats some erm...trust? lol

    There was parts of the train that did seem a bit acted and thats whats starting to kill top gear for me.
    its entertaining for sure.

    @Dave & Sandra, its at Brooklands, I went there many years ago, here are the only photos I have of it. Oh, and the light switch on the dash to the left of the steering wheel is just that, a light switch, its to start the engine !

    I owned that S8 that they used but sold it about 3 years ago. I had it from new and did over 120,000 miles in it. i have to say that I was surprised to see it and glad that they didn't trash it.
