Lotus Elise 2002

Not a supercar today, just a really nice little two-seater, the Lotus Elise in a deep red colour, spotted on the car-park of my local supermarket at the weekend. It is an early 2000's model, which has a 1.8 4-cylinder engine producing 122bhp. 0-62mph takes 5.6 seconds and the top speed is 126mph or 203km/h. I bet this car is as much fun as a go-kart!

Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster 2016

Nearly at 60,000 views and to celebrate, I thought I needed a special car. Thankfully, I came across the perfect one at the weekend whilst walking alongside Deansgate in Manchester, and this special car is the Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce Roadster. Looking at the stickers, it looks like it took part in one of the Cannonball rallies. The SV is a hardcore version of the standard Aventador. It has the 6.5 V12 which produces 740bhp! The performances of the car are absolutely ludicrous: 0-62 in only 2.9 seconds (with the 0-124 in 8.8 seconds) and a top speed of 217mph or 350km/h!!! The SV is easily recognisable thanks to its very aggressive look achieved through the extensive use of carbon fiber (from air vents to the massive rear spoiler to the bumpers) What a beast of a car!

Mercedes CLA 45 AMG Shooting brake 2015

Spotted a few weeks ago in the Trafford Centre, this is a Mercedes CLA 45 AMG Shooting brake. I do like the grey paint with the blacked out finish. Looks very stealthy! The CLA 45 has a 2.0-litre four-cylinder twin-scroll turbocharged engine which produces 355bhp (it has been upped to 375bhp in 2016) so 0-62mph takes 4.7 seconds and as usual, the top speed is electronically limited to 155mph or 250km/h.

Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Convertible 2016

A really nice Porsche 911 Carrera 4S convertible today, spotted in Wilmslow a few weeks ago. The 4S has a 3.0 straight-6 engine which produces 420bhp. The top speed is 188mph or 303km/h for the manual version (187mph or 301km/h for the PDK automatic). 0-62 takes 4.4 seconds (4.2 for the PDK). One of the rare convertible I would buy as I think it looks fantastic!
