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

    Y668 MRX was the Reg number.

    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.

    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.
