And can anyone forget the noise Mr Clarkson made when his FORD GT reported itself as stolen when he was driving it. He switched cars for the Gallardo Spyder after that.

He loved it, as much as he hated it.

That looks like a nicely spec'ed 599. The bumper-grill looks a bit different. Are they optional extras? Is it kitted with the HBTE package?

It's the 599 GTO, not GTB. These are standard fitments on the GTO.

Ah I missed the 'O'

Little surprised that a hardcore Ferrari has been spec'ed with beige interior. That's what left me with that confusion.

And in case there may have been a typo, had it been an option package on the 599, it would have been the HGTE and not the HBTE as mentioned above

Oh yes, that was a typo. HGTE it is! *bangs-head*

By the way, does anyone have any pictures of Rowan Atkinson's cars? I know he owns a McLaren F1. What else does he drive?

Perhaps this?

Got this pic a while back, I am not sure if it is his Bug. Does look like a track-day.

And his specced up Phantom with the kept-secret-till-date BMW 9 ltr v16 beast. He used that car in his latest Johny English franchise.

That's very good observation but Scorcher has already very clearly mentioned what car it is.

OK. Just realized that Bug=Bugatti and not the Beetle. I did wonder at that time why someone would mistake that car for a proper bug but anyway.
