Its another Harry’s Garage video, and another car that I absolutely love. This Mercedes SL600 is a rare car now, and something of a monster. I would absolutely love to own one of these, though with the way their prices are going that probably won’t happen.
I was at Brands Hatch on Sunday when this race took place, and was in the pits when it actually happened, and was therefore quite close to see the aftermath that included the doors being cut off, Rod Birley extracted on stretcher and what was left of the car being collected up. I was quite surprised so see so many people trying to photograph him at a point that no one even knew if he was conscious or how seriously injured he was. I was also surprised to see people letting their young children watch what was quite an unpleasant scene, though perhaps they were just shocked to see it so up close. Rod is something of a legend at Brands, with hundreds of race wins to his name in that Escort Cosworth, and hopefully we’ll see him back on track soon.
I haven’t watched a huge amount of ‘Harry’s Garage’ videos but I do like his presenting style, and will certainly be watching more. I love the Jaguar XJS (if you hadn’t already guessed), and this colour has got to be one of my favourites, especially on a Pre HE car, which, to me, just has a real style to it that becomes something different in later cars. This is a great video, and well worth a watch.
The McLaren P1 GTR and Aston Martin Vulcan are two of the biggest hitters among the most recent cars built (let alone track cars). This video lets you see them on track together, which I would imagine is incredibly rare considering the number of them and also the cost of bringing them together too. Its a pretty great video so hopefully you’ll enjoy it too.
I love an engine swap, and here are some really crazy engine swaps for you. Wouldn’t you love to have the time and money to build something completely mad that you have no real use for?
How about 8 vehicles you never knew existed for our next video? I definitely knew about a few of these, how about you?
No #2 is another compilation, but this time its a compilation of the top 10 film car chases, Imagine the amount of car chases they must’ve watched to find these!
