Audi RS5 2013

Time flies and I have just realised it is over a week since I last posted anything, so let's get back into it with this Audi RS5 spotted in Hale a few weeks ago. As mentioned in previous posts, the RS badge on Audis tells us we have a supersport version of the original model, here the A5. The RS5 has a 4.2 V8 which produces 450bhp and takes the car to 62mph from 0 in just 4.5 seconds, up to the usual limited top-speed of 155mph or 250km/h.

Today we are inside a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder at the HR Owen Lamborghini dealership in Stockport. I'm not really keen on the steering wheel, looks plastic to me...

Ferrari 458 Speciale 2014

Caught on camera last week at Stratstone Ferrari in Wilmslow, the brand new ultimate 458, the Speciale. 0-62 in 3 seconds and a top speed of 202mph or 325km/h for this 4.5 V8 597bhp version of the 458. Ferrari claim that this is the "fastest, most advanced but also most fun to drive mid-engined V8 sports cars" they've ever built. And by the look of it and of its performance, I can believe them!
