Saw my first 1M last month in Hanover. Sutcliffe rightly refers to it as a bulldog. It looked massively powerful just parked on the street. But even more impressive is how Sutcliffe absolutely owns the 1M. His car control, just like Harris, is legendary.
I wonder how instrumental Sutcliffe was in Harris acquiring his considerable helmsmanship...
The more I read all these reviews the more impatient I become.
My car has already arrived in the motherland and is waiting in Durban to be sent to Rosslyn for final preparation. The system shows an invoice date of 23rd May, this seems so far away..
Sutcliff's reviews are brilliant. His no-none sense approach married with insight for enthusiasts makes his reviews worthwhile watching. Often I find myself left empty with no food for thought after watching a review which practically says nothing.
Its finally here. My car arrived at the dealer this morning.
The system shows that its already invoiced to them. I'm planning on picking it up on Friday just in time for the weekend...
You better know where Fourways is boss.
I am collecting it at JSN in Bryanston, so we can hook up then bro..
I'll be sure to dress nicely on Friday for the photo-op! I'd really like to meet you man.
Same here my friend. I would like to put a face to the legend on GCF.. I will PM you when I go and collect and we can meet at the dealership. Its down the road from you..
The wait is finally over. I went to see my car at the dealership.
I must say my heart stopped a bit when I first saw her.. She is amazing.
The Dealer Principal walked up to me and said "Congratulations, you are one of the few elite that owns this car.. Enjoy"
I just felt like the most important person on planet earth..
Apologies for the crappy pics, all I had with me was my iPhone....
Martin, I would like to meet up with you if you can when I go and pick her up.. I'll PM you the details
What an awesome opportunity and privilege to meet you when you collect one of the most special cars on the planet - I'll be watching my PM like a hawk.
Did I miss the photos?
Nope, ghusheshe and I met on Friday at the dealer where he was collecting his gorgeous new baby from. Photos were duly taken on smart DSLR and we're waiting for them to make their way into my inbox. They'll be here in due course.
