talking about the DB9 Volante,said that he is doing a xmas dvd and spent the last week filming the following cars..AM DB9,ferrari 439,ferrari enzo,TVR sagaris,Range Rover Sport,MAserati Quattroporte,M5 and various other dream cars.Apart form one day,he said his preference was to drive home in the m5 and at the end of the test he could take any of the cars home for the weekend..he chose the M5 which in his words was 'simply amazing'.

The bad news is the engine blew up or somethig on the m5.

dont know if it was an engine blow-up. Could it be the same what happend to EKAN car?

Unfortunately, as I was leaving the airfield its transmission exploded, the rear wheels jammed and the on-board computer shut down the V10 in a big hurry. It ended up going back to its maker on a tow truck. I ended up going home in a rented Mondeo diesel.

All happened just around the corner from where I live (literally), at RAF Benson - they invited some of the villagers to come watch, but sadly I didn't get my backside in gear fast enough (no launch control!)
