  1. I'd love to see the Gulf car with all of it's sponsors back on the car.
     
  2. this made me lol
     
  3. Man, i love this car so much
     
  4. anyone know the details of the F1 thats on topgear on 28th june. Race against veyron in Abu dab.
     
  5. It looks to be chassis #061 that belongs to Rowan Atkinson. They have borrowed it in the past, so it would not be a surprise to see them use it again.

  6. one can only imagine Mr. bean pushing a car to 237mph
     
  7. Whats with the dealership plates.
     
  8. I don't know about California, but in Arizona it's pretty common for collectors to just have one dealer plate that they swap on to whatever car they're driving at the moment.
     
  9. Still amazing...
     
  10. Whos BRF?
     
  11. Brunei royal family.
     
  12. Bastards.
     
  13. SO this was the McLaren in the Top Gear Veyron Race?

    I wonder what the bill was to fix it.
     
  14. Yes - same F1.

    Reports have put the repair bill at £100,000. While the car appears to be a rather big mess, the accident was fairly low speed and caused mostly cosmetic damage because the nose of the McLaren went under the rear of the Mini Metro. It was not a huge shunt to the chassis.

    Here's a couple more images from its darker days.

  15. Small and crappy photos taken inside of a casino at Macau, China.
     
  16. What happened?
     
  17. Lost concentration and rear ended a Metro unfortunately. The nose of the F1 went under the rear of the car, picking the rear wheels up off the ground. It was actually fairly low speed, but the height difference of the two car's bumpers meant the F1 took it on the chin pretty bad.

  18. do dealers just give them to special clients?
     
  19. No, I believe if you buy/sell a certain number of cars a year, you qualify for the plates. Basically the owner registers himself as a dealer. Could be wrong, though. Arizona is pretty car friendly in general. No front plates, you don't have to insure your cars individually if you have enough money (basically one big umbrella plan), etc.
