Start the engine here!


Well, you can see it in my garage, its the ultimate, a Plus 8 with the 4,6L Rover engine, black with black leather. A delight to drive and an excellent car any way you look at it. In 2002 I took a trip with it to Gibraltar, and was astonished, no left traffic there but the pound sterling alive. This car is a joy in every respect, and I think they don't come any better any longer. The Aero8 does not seem to be on my wish list and so I think I am happy with what I got.

I still tremendously enjoy climbing into the car and pausing for a moment to let my eyes wander around the dash and over the bonnet, firing up the big V8 and listen to the big bore, no muffler sound. I love the wind entering the cockpit on the autobahn, the raindrops entering the cockpit also and - by the way, I never forgot to press the plunger on the one shot lubrication system, Derek!
