Drove the BA XR8 yesterday....

Im in love and so is the Mrs......

Went to work yesterday and was having a good look at the XR8 in the showroom, just jokingly said to the sales manager "where's the keys?" and much to my suprise he handed me a trade plate and a set for a silouette beast parked out the back.
I have to say that I have never seen so many heads turn as this beast was driving along...what a car, what an exhaust note....what awesome power!

Can someone please find me that magical job that pay enough to let me afford one of these:s6: :s6:
