My new pride and joy

Today was a sad day and a good day all in one.

This morning I had to walk up to my old Black Coupe ESi, to take it for it's last ride. Kinda sad to let it go. It still looks great I think. And there's only one that looks like this in the whole country (not sure, but chances are that it really is )

In return however, I got to take home my new ASM CTR GT. I forgot to put a camera on my face when I went to drive it, but I'm pretty sure there was a huge smile on my face for at least the first 4 hours.

CTR-C.jpg

CTR-E.jpg

CTR-G.jpg

CTR-F.jpg

It drives like nothing I've ever driven, except maybe an S2000. The power is very addictive. You want to hit that VTEC sweet spot every single time, but I'll keep it easy the first 1000km's.

More pictures tomorrow probably when I spent the day driving round a bit in the nice weather.

G'night from one happy CTR owner

That is one sweet looking car.
After seeing pictures of all the colours available on the Type R, I now think silver is the tops. (only because Vivid Blue ain't available )
Good choice

Look we`ve been over this a million bloody times! My new black CTR GT will destroy your supposedly faster silver CTR. The Lockheed Blackbird was black and moved at 3,000mph or so. Need I say more.

Black = Speed!!
