I think it may just be me but since collecting my 45 at the end of October, I have yet to see another one on the road.
Not one.
None.
Nothing.
A few of the "Engineered" clones and one guy around here has even got a 45 grille but the exhaust trims are a give-away.
Now I don't live in the middle of nowhere so I'm wondering if we are still a rare species??
Be interesting to know if any of you have seen or regularly see any others.

Mind you its nice to be part of a small club!!

saw a black one on a 14 plate the other day parked in Regents Park - looked very shiny and calipers spotless so must be very new

I have never seen an A45 on the road.


My wife saw a Mountain Grey A45 a few weeks back in Yorkshire. She said she heard it a fair distance before she saw it.

Admin: This should be a sticky thread, so we can announce any spotted cars?

None around Glos, Wilts or Berks although JB-45 seems to get about quite a bit!

I've seen one around leeds, mountain grey standard amg 18inch alloys. We was a the lights and he looked at me like WTF, and I was looking at him like WTF. He was really old like over 50's and I am only 26. I was shocked because he was proper revving it. He was shocked to see how young I was lol, its in the genes!

Oy! I resemble that remark!!!!

Really old????

Hmm, experience counts sometimes!

An example!

An old bull and a young bull were standing on top of a hill looking down on a field of pedigree Jersey cows.

Young bull says "lets run down there and have one of those cows!"
Old bull says, "Nope, lets WALK down and have them all".

I thank you!
