Re: Pics from Top Gear Show...8C included!

My mate was running an off road driving thing at it and he could only get me a pass to see the cars which is all I wanted to see, but from what I heard the show isnt that good. Ferrari's chasing each other and James May standing in one of those wall of death things with a motor bike whizzing around him!
Apparently the Bugatti belongs to a guy in Galway maybe the 8C is Irish owned as well!

I agree - excellent photos. If you want that colour I understand it is a current option on some other new Alfas at about £15k.

I do like the colour but can't decide which car to buy

Re: Pics from Top Gear Show...8C included!

Hey all - went to show today and have to say thought it was great. Lot of crap from nay-sayers doing the rounds, but if you went to it and just enjoyed it from an entertainment point of view it was v. good. Have lots of pics incl. the 8C which will try and post also, but off travelling next week, so will be a while before getting around to it.

That's great to hear I couldn't justify the price for me personally and instead bought panels for my car lol.

Re: Pics from Top Gear Show...8C included!

Was wanting to go big time initially, seeing the cars would have been sweet, especially the 8C. Heard mixed reports about the show alright but it isnt like it will be there next year so still wish I had got probably.

Re: Pics from Top Gear Show...8C included!

went friday for the second showing the show was great. pity i was in the nosebleeds. the veyron is galway owned at least it was when i seen it in the phoenix park when it did demo laps and the brakes went on fire. the 8c was amazing one of the highlights for me. the star in a reasonably price car was great craic hard on the lungs though

Re: Pics from Top Gear Show...8C included!

Nice pics.....I was there on Sat evening and it was entertaining alright. A bit too busy though to see the cars in comfort.

Yeah the Veyron is a Galway car......owned by Cunningham Higgins.....specialist car dealers.

Re: Pics from Top Gear Show...8C included!

Our local Alfa dealer here in Helsingborg Sweden managed to get a 8C
into his showroom for one evening and all Alfaowners in town were
invited. I was there of course. After looking at the beauty for a while
we were actually invited to sit in the car! Really nice of them I think.
Two days before I saw the car at a motorshow in Malmoe and you
could not get nearer than five meters.
