Yes. There's a red one, just like the one in the pics, that I keep seeing on the roads outside of Melton.

It has, in some form, a V8 and the front has a very small resemblance to the Ferrari Daytona

Its not cool. If you make a turd look like a ferrero rocher, thats not cool

I have no idea why I voted cool, it's a big fat wedge but there is something about it.

It's cool. It has character and, to my eyes, looks brilliant with the deep front spoiler.

That sort of suggests that you think little round chocolates that look like dog's eggs are cool. Ooh Mr Ambassador, you are spoiling us.

It was cool last time I voted. I'll stick with that.

Right spec, colour, condition, naturally.

The years have not been kind to this car...

Interior cool, exterior is one hell of an aquired taste.

Office Chair.

I was going to say borderline cool/uncool. It seems the last time I voted cool. The Vitesse being the upmarket model probably makes me think it is less cool, yeah that'l be it.

As a mile-munching cruiser, definitely COOL, , but then I would say that, having had 2 and seriously thinking about having one again.

Oh, and Ant, you've done it an injustice with one of your pics. That interior shot is from a Series 1 SD1, whereas the Vitesse was a Series 2 model with this interior :

The Vitesse was launched alongside the MG Metro turbo as a series one . The interior was by designer Charles Coldham who later designed the Rolls Royce Phantom interior for Bmw.
