Newbie.

Had a test drive in Winchester last week. Currently got a 370Z, but just a slight difference in the cars ! Handling is stunning, and no problems with automatic. Was offered a Premier edition in blue, but I need more adjustment in the seats, so will go with a Legende. looks like a year waiting list, but that works.

Blue Premier edition was being picked up whilst in Martins. One very happy owner :up

I'm sure you know it's Gordon Murray - McLaren F1 designer. Perhaps significantly it doesn't look like a press car from the registration number. I've seen somewhere that he was going to take delivery of one. See https://www.pressreader.com/uk/autocar/ ... 2190922900

The configurator is online, but only for the French market for now. Looks still under construction, but we can see
pictures of the P & L seats and other stuff. I rekon the PE seats with the large arrowed A at the center look better IMO.

I quite like the Thunder grey colour (in the real) :

Leaving my home town of Fleet yesterday, I saw my first A110 in the UK...and it was Thunder Grey..! Without doubt, I've now chocsen my next new car, and the colour it will be... It looked flippin' gorgeous.!! I've already had a quick go in one at Montlhery earlier in the year, so happy to place my order!!... Now to find some extra money..! :ugeek: :roll: :D
