Spotted leaving Rugby..

Postby The Saint » Tue Oct 04, 2011 7:34 am

Hello,
Since I purchased me GTA, I have been showing the guys at work, what a GTA is... and this morning, one of the lads comes up to me saying that he spoted one leaving Rugby, towards the M6 junction one at about 16:30.. 03.10.11.
This was a GTA Turbo, metalic blue and had a massive tail fairing..
He said he was doing 65MPH and it flew past him, and sounded like thunder. He was most impressed!

Anyone know this car??

Sometimes a highly polished car, some think, are metalic... Still I would like to see his car... I want to know which exhaust he has to make thunder... as my system will need to be replaced.

This is the Prima car, I don't like it personally but each to their own...

It's been for sale for years for a reason, it's too expensive!
