Happened to have a camera in my hand while wandering round Portrush then Portballaintrae, thought you might be interested to see what I captured.

Enjoy!

The i8 looks great but sadly lacking in noise, same can't be said of the Ferrari, I followed him up to Bushmills and blipped the throttle in the BMW to encourage him to rev his engine, which he duly obliged! I had an excuse as I had the kids in the car, they thought the Ferrari sounded great and egged me on to race him, I could keep up with him just about. I made them promise not to tell their mum I was racing Ferraris, which of course they did as soon as they came in the door! Squealers.

I've seen that i8 at the Ulster Hospital. The owner must be a Consultant.

I believe the i8 has sound effects played over sound system when driven hard. What do ye think of that craic?

Its probably best described as 'odd, first time is a little weird but its very believable.

The example I drove I didn't like, wasn't the nicest colours and interior and I couldn't feel the money but perhaps a longer drive may have helped an individual order i8 would be a thing ! :shock:
