    It is a 1951 MK VI. Here are a few more photos taken from the auction sale, including some of the lovely interior.

    Lovely.

    Silver Grey exterior and Red/Burgundy leather interior - my favourite combo!

    P.S. Is that a seatbelt buckle poking out the middle of the rear seat?

    It is, the only seat belt in the car (a three point inertia reel) is fitted to the passenger side rear. I guess someone who was being chauffeured was a nervous passenger!

    My new pride and joy, and it's British !!

    New animal in the family....




    Just had this delivered, looks stunning with the 'Gamay grape' coloured leather (darker than showing here...) - a brilliant combination

    Superb handling, which I had discovered earlier, testing the 300 and then the former SVR, at last into a top British product, and it's a a keeper (I tell my wife.... :-) ) !
    (first time without a German brand for 40 years !)
    Yet to take some pics.....

    I am a very very happy bunny !

    That is gorgeous, and just the right colour combo, love that 'aroma' when entering these beauties....
    My late father had a Lanchester Auto 'pre select' (pre war but was launched in 1945 I think) - ruined it by respraying it from its original black to a beige metallic..... :-( Excellent interior !

    Try the new FPace before deciding, huge space in the back as well !
    One of the very best handling cars I have driven, as also say others....

    I had no idea the 2.0D gave 250bhp

    I had one of these a few years ago and i think it was way less than that

    in the meantime Iíve had 2 FPace currently the 3.0D which is a great car

    Itís the upgraded 2.0 SD4 version of their ingenium motor from 2016 the normal 2.0 TD4 is only 200bhp, Also fitted in some Jag XF, XJ, F-Pace and RR Velar.
    I believe 2017 models went to 300bhp.

    They are so under-rated. I ran a vx220 for 9 years and i can't help but think a breathed on mx5 would give as many smiles without a lot of the heartache.

    E63s AMG 612hp and absolutely bonkers in Sport+




    And this Mustang 5.0 GT convertible. (looks and drives great, but won't keep the E63s in sight driven in anger)

    Had a MY2016 Evoque and really liked it. Thought it drove and handled well for the style of motor.

    Great motor! I've got the 240 F-Pace and really like it. Handles well and goes ok for 240hp, had the E-Pace before it and liked that as well. Maybe next time, if I don't go to the I-Pace!

    Very nice.
    Iíve just bought my end of lease GTD, in Atlantic Blue, to add to the fleet. Due the pandemic it had very low miles and I didnít want to hand it back.
    Now a Merc E Class coupe, Boxster, GTD and a Seat (with tow bar)to do the day-to-day hacking around.

    Why is there a bonnet scoop on an electric car? I'd be genuinely interested to see if the scoop is real? And what's below it.

    That Supra looks great in that colour! There is so much going on with the design I see something new every time I look at one of these.

    Very interesting car - don't see many about at all. I'd be interested to hear how you get on with it.

    The Supra looks an amazing car. It would be good fun I am sure.

    I bought my Golf R, having to decide between that and a M140i. I agree prices have been crazy recently, and I think they will probably stay silly for a little while yet.

    My R has only 14,000 on the clock and is a manual. So far so good. I am very happy with performance and quality of interior etc.

    It's just as fake as on the petrol Cooper S.

    Having spent a few weeks with now though, we love it! Drives like a go-kart, the interior is a nice place to be, plenty of technology etc. The range is rubbish though. We haven't had the fast charger fitted yet so charging through a 3-pin plug it's not getting much past 100 mile range. Fine for what we need it for but not much use as an only car. Boot is tiny too, but then it is a Mini.

    What do you drive?

    Indeed! Lovely alloys there too.

    Iíve owned a JCW in all 3dr models over the years, the whine of the SC in the Gen1 was hard to beat, manic smiles from this one.
