OT: A Bugatti Veyron.....

..... followed me for about 10 miles southbound on the M6 this afternoon.

He (or she) kept about a five car gap behind me and didn't go much above the national speed limit right up until we got onto the toll road.

He (or she) was never aggressive or made any attempt to overtake....

Right up until the point where the traffic thinned as we got on the toll....

Again, without getting any closer and without any agression, he (or she) politely flashed his (or her) lights - just the once....

Although I was - perhaps - creeping towards braking the speed limit at this point, I felt that pulling into the middle lane was the polite thing to do, given the circumstances....

O.M.G.

I want one!

I have never seen a car accelerate so quickly.

It reminded me of an F1 car!

I've no idea what speed he ended up at but it was amazing (and I'm not easily amazed!)

He went past me like I was stationary (and believe me - I wasn't!)

Stunning!

That's the problem with having a car like that for road use. I would never be able to resist opening it up a bit ... and losing my license in the process.
