Tonight’s Agenda: Tunnel Blasting!

Ever since watching this video from Goodwood Festival ’14….


….and being envious of the person down the road with one; The day actually came!

This particular SVR was a pre-production model; it was a “lefty” (LHD – possibly NAS spec), and it came with the obligatory ‘Emergency Stop” kill-switch in the cupholder.   It had done 7000 miles and it was showing a couple of scars already. The eagle-eyed amongst us might have spotted the headlight washer missing, which did make us wonder how fast those 7000 miles went by….. but judging by the trip computer’s 12.9mpg showing, probably really quickly!
