For starters, the car is almost 200k and while the temptation is to hit the pedal all the way down, there's the reality of handing over my licence to a cop who's sitting and waiting for a guy like me. I'm a huge car buff, and thankfully the web is filled with more experienced car geeks who'll tell you all the specs on this car. All I know is that is goes from 0-60 in a heartbeat and for a brief moment on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, it was a thrill to drive. If you've been to this blog before, you'll know that I'm a Ferrari fan who also loves the 69 Dodge Charger and occasionally sneaks a peak at a Porsche. On this day I would have tattooed the R8 logo on the base of my foot. My film crew never arrived (that sounds so Hollywood...like I have a film crew) at the end of the photos there's a little taste of what it's like to drive this car (courtesy of Car and Driver):
