    I fancied a change. I sold the R8 to Sytner who offered an OK price for the car so I got shot. I could have got more by selling privately no question, but I had too much stuff going on to worry about people wanting to chip me, kill me on test drives and generally waste my time so I got out of it. Enjoyed it hugely, but got a bit bored.

    Stunning, I bet you cant wait!

    A hot AMG though? Make sure you don't take it above 3K RPM.

    Wow, @Housey that's lovely, @Gibbo have you kept the Abarth or is the Yaris to replace it? How does it compare?

    Abarth was sold a week prior.

    They are worlds apart, the GR is a vastly superior drive, one was a city car on steroids and though a lot of fun the GR feels like a proper car.

    Abarth sounds better and is very cool looking but GR well the hype is pretty true.

    I agree the GR I think is going to steal a lot of sales from Abarth! They have the same target market really.

    I'm keen to drive one to be fair!

    Welcome back @Housey nice to see you back on here!

    I really enjoyed the ride you gave me in the R8, hopefully the future will allow people to meet in actual person again and we can have another OcUK meet.

    Nope a raffle company had it which made sale process easy and hassle free.

    180 you'll probably find is plenty. 0-60 is approx 7 seconds and because of the weight distribution and lack of aids you can get the back out at any speed in quite a controlled way. I have drifted around a few roundabouts (accidentally) when being a bit eager to pull in to agap. :o
