    What did ya think of the Murcielago spider tested. I liked it, pretty good section. But the hood/roof is crap, kinds of reminds me of the Barchetta roof.
    Also on right now on Sky one is a two hour special on films in cars, lots of great film cars including the "rock" and the 355 and Beuellers 250.

    The roadster is just the dogs bollox, I think someone has made a carbon piece for a hardtop so you wouldnt have to worry about the roof
    Problem is the car isnt made for the uk at all

    I would still rather a Zonda Roadster to keep at my pad overlooking Monaco Harbour.

    Murci roadster - the sexiest car 'in motion'..... ever. On the move, with the air intakes in the up position, nothing can beat it.

    A nice car for a sunny day. I agree the roof is not sympathetic to our weather. That must give owners more of an excuse to take the car touring to sunny climates.

    Photogenic car, looking great from every single angle. :)

    The Top Gear exhaust theme tune was funny/tragic.

    I did pick up a copy of the Top Gear magazine yesterday as it contains fridge magnets to create your own cool wall. I have laid out my selection of cars, but I am sure someone will re-arrange them.

    p.s. the Koenig thingy is not beautiful. Just interesting looking.

    I'm with you there Dem - to me the Koenigsegg is by far and away the most desireable car out there.

    Yep that is true - for £175k where do you get looks, performance and history like it. Pricewise its like comparing a Clio sport to a Mitsubishi FQ 400 etc. Its fab value..

    And the new Murcielago Evolutioni is unbelievable, i've seen pics and it is much much more agressive looking. Front splitter a la Enzo, one single huge oval exhaust, round rear light clusters and 6.5 ltr V12 with 645bhp. Its lighter and should do 0 - 60 in 3 secs dead and 217mph top speed. I don't think it will be quite as fast as the Enzo but its still £190-£195K.
    A Mclaren Mercedes SLR for £350k or a murcie Evo for £195K? Theres no contest in my mind. Thats why i've got one on order. But then again i'm a little biased..

    No, you're right, but then that's what makes it so great!

    However, I have to admit that just listening to it idle is enough for it to get my vote as the greatest car out there today!

    And then there's the way the doors open............ ;)

    I don't disagree, but if you can afford £190k for a car, you're getting into the "if you have to ask, you can't afford it' realms............

    In my experience, the words 'value' and 'bargain' aren't too important when people can afford to spend £150k+ on a set of wheels! Me thinks more a case of, "I can have two of those instead of one of those!"......... ;)
