fcuking hell TT that’s the best car purchase announcement ever. Shits on everyone’s, including Greg’s blue car. Massively impressed and jealous. IT’S A FCUKING MCLAREN!

I particularly love how absurdly impractical it is for a family of 5 and the fact you’ve bought it in Autumn.

Thanks all,

Cheers Teeks. I felt a bit sheepish posting especially as I bought it the same week as Deuts and didn't want to one-up.
I got horrific budget creep but ultimately just thought 'fcuk it' I want one.
And then I test drove it being worried I might be underwhelmed after the rs6 and I really really wasn't. It is fcuking brilliant.

Very nice.

Poor old doots, with his grandad estate car.

ETA: and he's not even a grandad yet!

Not my fault that you've bought a car that's basically exactly the same as mine!

I’d like to drive Teet’s car, I’d like to keep Deut’s car.

Of course, we now need to start a "TT - Is this your Maclaren?" thread on which everyone posts fawningly every time they spot one of these.

That’s a fcuking astonishingly good buy. Very well done indeed. Remember teets, respect isn’t given...it’s earned.


Gregg, you remind me of a story a lawyer friend told me.

Her old boss was a lawyer and a massive cnut to boot. One Christmas, his kids were petitioning him for a puppy so he made one the counsel for and the other against. He actually held a hearing in his front room and retired to his chambers to consider his verdict. His family all assumed he was merely using it to illustrate the importance of researching the subject and constructing a coherent argument, but was obviously going to get them a puppy.

But he emerged some time later and revealed that the case for had some glaring inaccuracies and was insufficiently fleshed out to merit a purchase. The case against has it. No puppy this Christmas. The end.

Is that you??

No! And I told you that story, your utter shit!

(It’s a story I’ve heard countless times over the years. The villain is always “a silk in chambers where a friend of mine is”. And it’s either a puppy or a a bit or a kitten).

I think we are all forgetting, in our deserved enthusiasm over TT’s new car, THAT I WON 20 QUESTIONS!

Focus, you lot, focus! This is a Big Picture moment!

Something smells of success.

Hearty congrats on your lovely car - terrific choice. Really looking forward to your reviews and escapades. You’ll have the weirdest drive pairing in the world though with that parked up next to the wife’s Dacia.

Just a thought, but I believe this has broken the record for the largest disparity in beauty between the owner and the car, beating the previous record set by Chris Evans and his Ferrari 458 Italia.

Chris Evans owned a 250 GTO for a bit as well I think, setting an unbeatable score

Amazing purchase TT, well done, great choice, etc.
Looking forward to reading about what its like to live with.

Genuine question (not expecting admissions of guilt, etc from anyone), is there anywhere in UK you can put your foot down now ?
Motorways all seemed to be 'smart' with cameras everywhere and there was so much traffic everywhere when I last visited.
Will you do any track days ?
I understand you don't have to go fast every time you are in a supercar but ……….

North Yorkshire. No fixed cameras here. Just check the website for where the mobile cams will be, and off you go.
