I've had some absolutely unbelievable driving experience is an ex con has been almost impossible picking a definitive one. But here are some of them that really stood out for me. First up the 1975. Aston Martin V8. The classic car -- -- -- is fantastic experience a journal I go to drive some dream cause -- the course of an evening. Rolls Royce corniche -- 18100 SD VR Kai Mara but aren't always loved the seventies Aston Martin looks and sounds like an American muscle car. It was the last car than not have been filming for a day straight it was to -- animals holy shell of the person the car was leaking fumes inside -- -- have the windows wide open. But none of them so when I -- -- spelled Apple mighty T earthquake rumbling across the completely deserted -- -- the VA drowning out any other sound. Next up the -- -- saw. Being in the presence about most of was an absolute pleasure. There was nothing you can do and it was terrifying I'm even knowing he's this thing made its 200 horse power by -- could read to 111200. RPM and it sounded like. This was all going on directly in your -- On the road he felt like you're in -- -- and surprisingly on track this thing really came to assign for me. I've never driven a -- -- so much fun with the most insurance isn't the giving liftoff by the state. Announced before we even -- jump. That's where -- -- -- prep complete with -- -- racing livery that draw more jewels and all this -- because we've had put together this was a people's car. They loved it and I was lucky enough to have a for the weekend brought had a parade of people waving stopping in their tracks and -- -- next to me -- -- -- kids running alongside going like this the waste -- hissing when you lift off the throttle the acceleration when its hub is finally kicked in. It was just -- and endless -- childish fun. Then as the SP 300 off my first experience of driving a serious racing machine complete with slicks and downforce -- to briefly fulfill my childhood dream of being a racing driver. Although in those ten minutes less than twice and in no -- -- -- need -- -- downforce would've had an effect. Still that -- And finally the BMW he says he and three when he pentium three NE 92 and three GTS -- -- the office. Alex let me choose which one my take home for the night and although the bright orange shade of mental that was a GTS did appeal. Our content down the chance to -- one of my heroes on my drive for the nights and it was just so so cool to have a even for a day. So I some great cause that that -- now. And I have to -- this is a completely -- decision and thinking of the cause I've driven my -- is -- me to come and go for something more original but it's got to be the patron seven. I just can't help myself that was the -- car right -- -- Rex talked a when I picked out from case from in my first week and drove it back into Central London despite the traffic the passion and enthusiasm even a rush out people should -- the car was absolutely astounding. And I've had my fair share of bad experiences in the a 6 AM drug to rocking -- in February having to pull over on the M one shivering uncontrollably. And fixing the -- only that is all full -- he'd -- -- buttons we dead -- hands or driving back from the office in -- seven that just didn't come with a roof with the heavens are opening rendering me unable to see as well as drowning me. But none of that matters because I also remember being a account try to training seem -- -- course and the three -- completing OLAP predominately sideways to the also subtler than that Alex and I competed in -- like I was in complete tandem with a cough. Moving things politics my tiniest input the strongest connection I've ever felt in a car. Or even driving along the normal preset to -- at 3 AM and -- the engine to listen to echoes through -- to parliament square. It really is a drive this car is cited -- and when you briefly field despite the -- theory complete control. Nothing can -- that. So -- my favorite ever experienced and it costs -- something that can talk about last night in the comments collect.
