    ....as i awoke from slumber in front of the tv sometime recently, i am almost sure they stated at the end of the show, that "next week we visit the home of JK (???) and view his motor collection".....i think the programme was fifth gear and is due next mon or tues.
    I would imagine somebody like Dale (our in house TV Times) would have picked this up, unless it's an age old repeat.....or unless i was dreaming.
    Can any body confirm ?
    cheers, d

    Yep, I concur - tis true - there was an article in EVO or Octane or somesuch a while ago about how he had was invited to order, didn't, then got a new record deal, got back on the list - and how he went to pick it up etc..... Actually in all fairness I believe he is a true car buff and knows his stuff! Has an interesting and varied collection of classics.

    He's been in a few...

    Octane - talked about his Enzo being fantastic above 160mph... that he loved his 550 after all these years... and is selling his 360spider as its too much of a footballers car.

    Car - they accompanied him to Italy to pick up the car and did a big photoshoot

    Autocar - they've done a '20 questions' with him

    He was at Goodwood with it.
    Someone named Tom wrote his name on it while it was on display.
    Jay Kay's Response:
    "If i would have seen Tom do it, i would've decked him"
    Jay Kay picked it up second hand. I thought he picked it up new, but i was surprised to hear that.

    He got it new. There are picturesof him picking it up from the factory in the owners website. Also, I a magazine (I think Evo) did the trip with him and wrote about it.

    As mentioned earlier he didn't get the original place on the list.

    He apparantly bought an Enzo from someone else who hadn't recieved it yet. Thus he picked it up from the factory.

    ** I was in a bookstore once and saw a black Enzo on the cover of CAR magazine. I opened it and a British rock star named Jason Kay or "Jay" Kay as the text revealed. He recently took delivery of a new black Enzo. The article also showed lots of photos of the black on black masterpiece. The bloke looked no older than 20 years of age.

    JayKay famously crashed his Purple Diablo... its on wrecked exotics, light purple colour.

    He has an F40, 360spider, 550, dunno about 355.

    Most are stored in Bucks at his mansion in a specially constructed garages... very high security. The F40 and others are stored elsewhere apparantly.

    He also has:

    Bentleys
    Lamborghini Miura
    Classic Merc Gullwing
    BMW (classic E30ish shape rally/road car)

    And the best thing is HE DRIVES THEM!!!

    Regularly seen around High Wycombe in his various cars.

    Famously said on Top Gear "the kids of today will never get a chance to see a Miura fly past at 150mph... real shame" or something like that. He's very against garage queens.

    Top bloke in my opinion :) That and theres a photo of him in the local chippy :D

    Oh yeah... search archives for lots of pics of Jay with his Enzo in London. lots of pics taken and posted. Also, he was on radio claiming to have driven it at over 180mph on a motorway.... allegedly.

    Good article here on his cars:

    Last year at LeMans he put on a free concert for the race fans on the Saturday night during the race, and every now and then he told the band to be quiet, put the mike towards the race track and said - ' now that is real music!'

    There was also an article in Octane about the unique '50's Maserati that he bought.

    Thanks for that andrew, good article, and i now feel suitably "informed".
    I can seriously ensorse his admiration for the ride twixt La Spezia and Santa Margherita Ligune, lunch in the hills, followed by dinner at Portofino.....i can assure you, you will enjoy and never tire of going back and forth.
    I recently posted a thread re motorail to the south of france.....this was the adventure uppermost in my mind, along with a trip to Maranello and maybe, my first visit to the ducati factory and museum in Bologna.
    Anybody out there seriously fancy it ?
    regards, david

    He was famously beaten by model Jodie Kidd in the Top Gear show's "star in a reasonably priced car" timed lap around the Top Gear test track.

    I heard that someone wrote "Jodie's faster" in the dust on the car when it was parked up at Goodwood.

    Robert.

    I agree, Sant Agata Classic had it on their website a few months ago as a previously sold vehicle, a 95 GTS. I believe he lost his licence driving it.

    Paul Baber is selling his 250 GTO (Favre recreation) actually I am not sure I was supposed to know that it was his car - but I do.

    If anyone fancy's a car with a bit of rock star provenance there you go (remember it is a recreation and they still want £175,000 or so). Personally I'd have Lennon's Roller or Mercedes SL.

    JK also owns a BMW 2002 (top man), Miura (as stated), Bentley, Silver DB5, SL Roadster (not Gullwing), Maserati (Frua ?) and an Alfa (I think). Anyone with a garage like that gets my respect.

    I thought Diablo was 'devil'... he should compare his car to some other kind of mythical beast that has not already been taken. Like a goblin or Fairy..... hummm doesn't have the same ring to it somehow.
