What a beautiful car and when my lottery numbers come up tomorrow, this will do nicely as my track toy. Honestly can say I prefer this Scud over any of the newer crop of supercars including the 458, Mclaren etc and that colour is perfect. The only other car I could think of which might tempt me to stray would be a Gallardo Superleggera.

Well that didn't last long. The scud has gone.

Verdict in. Brakes are shite and it feels like it's going to fall apart. The detailed verdict is that it's a great track car but it's just too expensive to take on track. The brakes are especially bad on the road as they need so much heat to work, supposedly left foot braking was required on long straights to ensure they would work when needed. There were supposedly a few near misses before this was realised.

My friends words. He also said he felt like a bit of a dick driving around in something quite so ostentatious. Maybe okay in some areas of the UK but this is Glasgow.

Anyway, it's been replaced with this.

I had a little joke with him about that. He had an orange GT3 RS a few years ago. The wing on that was even bigger. I pointed out that he must be getting sensible now he's hit his 40's as he opted for the spoiler in medium this time.
