Car Spotting: What You Saw Recently! - Part 2

Recommended Posts

I saw a big noisy Chrysler SRT8 that tried to teach me a lesson in power and acceleration..... AND FAILED :cheeese: :lol:

 

Ok there was no chance for a side by side drag race (a car turned out in front of us when the lights went green so we had to go slow after a very short burst), but he floored it merging onto the freeway and I didn't lose any ground to him - so I'd say evenly matched. Made my day at least.

I love these blenders, making loud ass noise out of their cars, but can't drive crap lol we got a load of loud S500's and C350 Diesel's (yep, that's possible) converted to AMG's with V12 Biturbo logos and stuff. All owned by local mafia, but that's a different story.

 

A friend of mine has filmed one of them, afterwards the owner came and told us "What do you think about the sound? I love it, it sounds like a freaking jet!"

 

 

:fp:

Was at yet another car show in the weekend, never took any pic's of stuff my self.

 

Had a good chat with the owner of a Honda S800 Coupe, one of the very few Original UK cars left! As well as with other owners there.(TVR's, Old MG's, Triumphs, E-Type, etc, )

 

Also a Formula-E car was on display.

Brand new Audi RS6 :D The driver though was a guy who was trying his hardest to look very swaggy, so I kinda lost my respect for him there. He even had a personal license plate on the car reading "3POINT9". XD Sounded lovely though, even though it was barely idling when it went past me.

Another weekend, another car event for me (that's been like a Month & a half I've had car stuff on!)

 

Was at the British Drift Championship today( Sadly not the Gumball3000, but was only like 25 miles away from it). All the cars you expect from Drifting but this one has always pipped my interest.

What a nice S15 Silvia there with it's lovely SR2...what a tick!

 

[ATTACH]20516[/ATTACH]

 

Viper V10, because why not! :lol:

 

Reason behind the swap? The guy likes the style of the S15, and has always liked the viper...so when a Viper engine came up for grabs he put 2 & 2 together!! :D

 

Should have pic's taken on my camera by the end of the week, forgot to pack the USB for it and im away from home for a week...

Sadly i never got any shots of the AE86's that were on track or in the paddock :( Although do have a 86 twin shoot from the same day (more on that later)

One of the AE86's competing did seem to have what looked like a V8 or something in it when i walked past it during the day in the paddock.

 

I tend not to take photos during brakes and such as teams are working on the car and such, so often go during the races.I did finally go and get pictures round the pit's during the top top 8 shootouts of the Super-pro and got a handful of pics, which I'll post when I've got them off my camera. :D

Yeah that's the one I though had a V8 (sounded like it in qualifying), other was the old Rough World one.(which I had a good look around in the paddock)

 

I don't take too many photos of stuff as I prefer to see it all without having a lens in my eyes at sporting events, also my mates take tons of photos.
