Behold: the David Brown Speedback Silverstone Edition.

With a look inspired by the classic Ferrari and Aston Martin GT racers of the 1960s, this 5.0l supercharged, V8 roadster will do 250km/h and 0-100km/h in 4.2 seconds.

Not that you’ll care a jot, reclined in the luxurious brogued tan leather and scorched Ebony Macassar interior, listening to Verdi on the 7.1-channel Bowers & Wilkins sound system.

Ten will be built. One can be yours for €696,000+.

      *Gauntlet thrown* Madam, I demand satisfaction! Chocolate-eating duel and a Supernatural marathon, perhaps?

        Oooooooooo! You had me at *
        New series should be starting soon. I’m genuinely embarrassed that I’ve been watching the same old crap for 13 years and still cry away at the meaningful bro chats in the car.

          Can you believe the whole of last year’s series languishes recorded and unwatched in our living room? Hard to imagine given the amount of Shepherd and Pellegrino!

            It’s not the GREATEST series but the last few episodes (as per uje, and the one mid-season before they take a break) really stir it up.
            I think Mark Pellegrino is a bit of an oddball IRL. I don’t have the mental capacity to wade through Ayn Rand’s teachings but he’s a follower.
            He’s a perfect Lucifer, though.

            Get back to me when you’ve watched it. Maybe binge it over the weekend and we’ll speak at 9am Monday. That can’t be too much of an ask? Only joking. 5pm.

      Funny, I was just thinking the same thing.

      In a wholly different context, mind, but the same thing.

      Not the F, but the older XK. The steering wheel was the giveaway for me.

      And not just the drivetrain but the entire car inc. engine…

            They’re gorgeous. I don’t like the word Porsche painted onto them, though.

    Just looking at pictures of this elegant car made me grow an immaculately groomed beard. And I’m 12

    Looks like an American muscle car from the side, 60s jag racing car from the front.
    I’m not sure about it but the tan leather seat is 100%

    Oh my that is a thing of beauty. Looks like it’d muscle most cars off the road but in a gentlemanly polite way. A really ugly bull dog would finish it off nicely.
