Beautiful car, I saw an episode of Top Gear where they got one up to 180. Pretty impressive for a sedan :thumbsup:

Yeha I saw that too, apparently it will do over 200, as the W12 Phaeton does and its basically the same engine/drivetrain/platform.

It wasnt quite going that fast, probably about a tonne.

The houses down there are nothing special, but they cost twice as mucha s mine, and mines about four tiems the size with more land, they really are LOADED down there.

Windsor is a long way out of my area, Im in the North, Northumberland.

The countryside is much nicer here.....

mhm...on the way to my aunt and uncles' flat on the sea in Exmouth, we were driving through the countryside and I saw this great big estate with a Diablo parked in the driveway.

In Windsor, I used to see a silver Murcielago everyday on the way into town, I saw a '70s Daimler there too and a early '60s Bentley. That was the only time I've ever been to a Ferrari/Maserati dealership.

There is obviously more money in the South, because the capital city is there, London and the South for me is alien, it isnt the UK i know, its the North and Scotland that are my personal tastes, I have only ever seen four Lambos in this are...

Is the north like the england that you hear about in Led Zeppelin's songs, like Jimmy Pages' house with a thatched roof, and the sheep farms and whatnot. The north always seemed more like farms and country and the south seemed more like industrialzed cities and stuff.

It took me a little while to find out that you were talking about a car and not riding accouterments or flying farm animals! :bonkers:

I didn't know that a Flying Spur was some kinda fancy Rolls Royce!

Its really the other way round...

In the North we had the pits, coal mines, and that was a pretty black time, we were the coal kings, but Northerners were considered common, and working class only, at that time 90% of the wealth was owned by 10% of the population, the cities in the South are bigger (London, Birmingham) but they are more controlling than the ones in the North (Newcastle, Manchester)

Since the mines closed, we have become more cultured, outside of London Newcastle is known as the biggest cultural centre, and also the best night out, we Noirthern folk are tougher than the Southerners, and work harder. Most jobs in the South are typical desk jobs, most jobs here are manufacturing (massive Nissan plant in Sunderland provides 5,000 with jobs)

Countryside, the North has much nicer feautires, the South gets repetitive, we have a massive forest and lake, Keilder.

This is most typical Southerners view of the city I live in, this is how most see it, in the 1930s, alot of them think we still work in pits and are rough barbarians



This is the reality.






We are the poor relation up here, and the further north you go the worse it gets with the southerners

There is a great sense of regional pride here.
