The boss had one in black, absolutely beast of a car. 4 of us came upto Waxstock in it last year.

Goes like poop of a shovel as the saying goes.

Enjoy, looks a great car.

I can't comment on funny shapes, I've owned the Megane II models since 2006 and they're definitely an odd shape haha.

Gives them character I guess, where sometimes cars (especially German) can all be a little stiff and starchy.

Haha don't be daft. Ron Perlman is in his 60s and is cool!

I suspect I'll still be wearing Converse and AC/DC t-shirts when I'm your age. Growing up is overrated.

Well here's a quick shot of that epic V8!





Hand crafted by some chap who's name I can't read let alone pronounce. Either way, well done that man.

Lovely car and a big step up in all senses I imagine. Wish I had the commitment to run something like this. The fuel and insurance I could cope with but the fear of a big bill has me staying away.
