You would be suprised by what cars live on Guernsey, allegedly several Hypercars such as the Mclaren P1 and Bugatti Veyron are located on the island but are rarely driven on the island itself but transported to london or paris before being driven. We seem to be getting a lot of Lamborhini Huracans up north, seems to be the go to Supercar for rich guys up here. With regards to the GT8, thats a very very rare car, Ive only seen 1!

I'm not sure about the Veyron over here but i know there's one in Jersey,some of them get driven qiute a lot over the summer (waiting in the docs carpark a couple of weeks ago and a Ferrari drove in then a Bentley and a massive Merc Coupe AMG that was a mobile earthquake)...We've also got a lot of yanks over here now and again you see a 59 caddy driving around and a few from the 70s...That's what you get with the finance industry,people driving around in cars the same price as you average house...

Re: Kestrel's Car Spotting

Lovely shots,seeing that Countach reminds me of Miami Vice (if you ever see a white Testarossa make sure you have your camera)...

Edit: The series,not the excuse of a film...

Re: Kestrel's Car Spotting

Yesterday was the Newcastle Ne1 Carshow and I had VIP access so I was able to get access into the stands to get decent pics away from the crowds. Here was the star of the show...

Car: Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato
Power: 600BHP
Top Speed: 193MPH
Engine: 5.9 Litre V12
Location: Grey Street, Newcastle
Price: 500,000 new, if one was to sell I would expect it to bring over a million.
Notes: Only 99 made.

Re: Kestrel's Car Spotting

Yesterday I made an outing to my local Bentley dealer to have a look at the new 2017 Continental Supersports, the most hardcore car Bentley has ever created (apart from the GT3 race car). To put how fast it actually is in perspective, it is the fastest 4 seat car of all time, thats faster than a Lamborghini Huracan . Unfortunately this is the last variation of the current shape Bentley Continental as it is being replaced with a new shape for 2018, which is a great shame as it has grown to be one of my favourite cars. Big thanks to Bentley Newcastle for being so accomadating, would definitely recomend a visit if youre in the area.

Car: Bentley Continental Supersports
Power: 700BHP
Top Speed: 210MPH
Engine: 6.0 Litre W12
Location: Bentley Newcastle
Price: 254,000
Notes: Only 710 to be made.

Re: Kestrel's Car Spotting

Received an interesting Phone call on Saturday night from the manger of the local Bentley dealer letting me know they had the Continental GT3 race car in for the 2018 Continental launch event on tuesday night. To make things better it was the #8 car driven by my heroes Andy Soucek, Maxime Soulet and Vincent Abril to Victory in the 6 Hours of Paul Ricard race in June and 2nd place in the 24 Hours of Spa, they have been so succesful this year that they are leading the championship with only 1 race to go (so fingers crossed). I was in Portugal when I received the phonecall and didnt get back home untill Monday afternoon and with the Dealer being closed all day tuesday to set up for the event I was devastated I was unlikely to be able to see it but the manager was more than accomadating to let me come when the showroom was empty of all cars bar the GT3 to get the best pics possible, so shoutout to him!

Car: Bentley Continental GT3
Power: 600BHP
Top Speed: 170MPH
Engine: 4.0 Litre V8
Location: Bentley Newcastle
Price: 300,000 Aprox
Notes: Track Only, only a handfull made.
