I finally got to go on the Land Rover rides and drive after seeing them at a number of events and it has to be said that they are capable of amazing things. Speaking of which, the Swift lads were also doing their incredible driving in the Honda arena using a whole range of vehicles.
There promised to be a lot of exotica on display with both a Heritage Enclosure outside for the privately owned, mainly older models and two Ultimate Collection galleries for the newer cars, although only the private one had the Veyron and Apollo. There were also some exquisite Ferrari watches there which my photographs do not do justice too as they were protected by a think glass case. A big well done to Broughtons for showcasing what seemed like almost every model they sell, sometimes more than once. The Bugatti Veyron and one of the Pagini Zondas were also in a different colour to those I'd previously seen.
It's always interesting to see the concept cars that are on display,
with Renault proving the most eye-catching for me. Although I don't have
any particular cars of the show, the line of Spykers, including the
pedal bike, looked fabulous, as did the curves on the Mazda Furia and
the entire Alfa Romeo stand.
