    That's the issue, a few years ago cerberas were going for 10-12k. They're out of my price range now for a 2nd motor unfortunately

    Good choice of colour. I had a blue 5l Chim 20 years ago. Unfortunately it was written off when someone went through a red light. Apparently it was repaired and is still on the road. Just a shame I can't remember the reg.

    Hi there


    Spotted the usual stunning R8 V10 in the Asda car park and as always parked next to it, the only difference this time I grabbed a photo. :D

    Hard to believe the Aston is worth nearly £10,000 more than was paid for it and prices on the manuals which mine is seem to be somewhat exploding, done a couple of thousand miles in it in the past year and it truly is a wonderful car to drive once you have adjusted to its heavy controls but they are full of feel, just recently had a major service and MOT, given clean bill of health and feedback from specialist of one of the best they have driven, but its been pampered.

    The V8V is truly a beautiful timeless classic looking car that in the future will be far more sought after than the newer better AMG power car.


    Also it is great to see an R8 in such an amazing colour, really do wish there was more red, yellow and other brightly coloured R8's around, such beautiful cars to look out and so many just come in drab boring colours.

    I can imagine the look on the R8 owners face as they arrive back (after parking in the quietest part of the car park) to find someone parked next to them!

    Haha they were still parked there when we returned, he is a member of staff in Asda, so is always parked in the far corners of the car park out the way and I always go and park next to it, but always with plenty of distance away, it is a stunning example. :)

    I've only been away from the UK for a few years but Asda staff didn't drive supercars when I was there:eek:. I'm guessing he's not a regular checkout guy but still pretty impressive

    No idea, but as it is always parked there so one assumes he works there as its not abandoned.
    I am sure a management position pays well or maybe its just his dream car and that is his priority over anything else.

    I've seen similar, guess it depends on your priorities. I think store manager etc is into 50k mark surely. When I was 18 and worked in a retail shop the manager was driving a brand new Jag too and that was a 60k or so car. She was on 42k if I remember right.

    The wonders of modern car finance ;) they literally throw everything at you now for zero deposit (but hefty APR!) & low monthly payments. But if your sensible & do the math you see why the dealer is making some serious money out of it & in a few years (or sooner if the finance overstretches you) you wake up & understand how much you need to find to ever own the car at the end of the contract & how much its actually costing you over the lifetime of the contract :eek:

    Really don't think you can buy supercars with zero deposit, normally to get into a 60k plus car, you need some deposit and on a 100k plus car you need a decent deposit, I could be wrong but no sound financial advisor would ever advice financing should a high value vehicle without protecting yourself and to protect yourself from potentially owing the finance company money if you handed back the vehicle means giving a decent size deposit.

    So its more likely BTC purchased or just someone who has saved up and dropped a large deposit or paid outright, or has a decent side business. :D
