It’s an Alfa 164... but with an electric motor... but still with a 5 speed manual.
...Patrick George settles in for the drive home.
I like to think my R1200R is pretty rare, but the R1200S is almost impossible to find in England. Sadly, this one looks like it’s led a hard life, scrapes on both sides and tears down the seat.
...the more it looks 'right' to me.
...and fail, inevitably.
Waited for the owner, of course. Damage to their car (2008 VW Golf diesel) is a small dent to the left side of their upper rear bumper part, and a crack in their outside left brake light.

Not worth $10k in my opinion, and i'm not a fan of the landau top, but damn that's a clean build.
I'm not sure if I want this or not, but it's fairly interesting and no doubt the craftsmanship is pretty impressive.... A 1990 Mazda Miata, modified with box flared arches. I actually kinda like the bodywork, but it's a shame the colour is so gopping awful. Not really a fan of the exhaust setup either, and the…
In an effort to curb air pollution in the city, Parisian authorities have announced that from from 5.30am today a scheme of alternating driving days, based on odd and even number plates, will come into effect for cars, HGVs and motorcycles.
