Mercedes CL55 AMG 2002

Today, a big Mercedes Coupe, the CL in its 55 AMG version. I spotted it while in Cornwall in the summer on the harbour in Porthleven. It has a 5.5 V8 engine with 360bhp. 0-62 takes 6 seconds and the top speed is 155mph or 250km/h.

Morgan Roadster 2012

Spotted in Zennor in Cornwall last summer, a Morgan Roadster with a 3.7 V6 engine and 223bhp. The roadster is capable of 4.9 seconds to cover 0-62 and of a top speed of 134mph or 216km/h.
Lovely little roadster and I love the colour scheme!

Ferrari F430 2006


Something not too exotic today, spotted round the corner, a Ferrari F430 ... in red! (you will have remembered what I think of a red Ferrari from previous posts!) As described in previous posts about the F430, it has a 4.3 V8 engine with 483bhp. 0-62 is covered in 4 seconds and the top speed in 196mph (315km/h)
Again, I would drive one but I am not sure I would want to own one! Certainly not in red!!!

Audi RS4 2006

Not the first time on the blog for the Audi RS4, in white this time. With a 4.2 V8 engine and 420bhp, it only takes 4.8 seconds for the four-door saloon to cover 0-62, and as usual, top speed is limited to 155mph or 250km/h. This Audi was spotted on the Home side of the Trafford Centre before Christmas!

Tesla Roadster 2011


Happy New Year to all of you! I wish you all the best for 2014, and hope all of your motoring dreams come true!
After two weeks off, back in France for Christmas and New Year, I am back with an unusual little two-seater, the Tesla Roadster. Why unusual, well first because Tesla is a relatively new American car manufacturer (only about 10 years old) and then because they specialise in electric cars. The Roaster is powered by a fully electric motor, which produces 248bhp, and takes the car to 62mph in under 4 seconds and to an electronically limited top speed of 125mph (201km/h).
I saw this particular one in the Trafford Centre at the brand new charging facilities as you can see in the third picture!
