Me and the Zed have just been thrashed...

...by a 61 plate orange Mclaren driven in anger.

Not often I'm absolutely anayalated on a public road but he had a 'slight' advantage

What a noise and funky air brake!!

Quite likely, was on the bypass nearby.

To be fair, I was being held up by a car in front, I just spotted a flash of what I thought was red in my rear-view mirror, I assumed Fezza, when it passed me on the inside realised it was orange and not a Fezza at all. Gorgeous looking machine though and sounded great (even under braking).

I'm fairly confident that if I'd had chance to have a pop it would have been quite embarrassing

I would love the chance to have a go with a McLaren or 458

In 2 years the only time i've had a car have a go and it was 4 kids in an R32 chasing me down the M8 trying to get video/photos!

to challenge a Mclaren, you'll need at least a mapped 335d......
