I had to use the 2 because LettersToDoug was already taken, probably by some bastard with a first-generation Touareg. Fortunately, karma is undoubtedly getting him back for this great injustice, because his check engine light probably provides more reliable illumination than his headlights. Anyway, this weeks letter comes to us from a reader Ive named Milford. Although Milford did not tell us where he lives, I am going to assume it is Florida, because his letter includes several grammatical errors. I hope thats enough flattery for you to consider my letter. Anyway what happens to 6 figure exotic cars five years after they end production? There are only so many Tavarishs in the world and I figure carmax warranties wont cover a Laferrari. I image there is almost no demand since they dont really depreciate enough to be affordable to us peasants and they dont end up in junkyards so were do they go or is my answer to search Africa on google maps? What Milford is basically asking here is: what the hell happens to used exotic cars when rich people who buy them new are finished with them? Fortunately, I happen to be an expert on this subject, because I have spent many hours running Carfax reports on old exotic cars. This has led me to discover a pattern: they disperse.

He also has false hips and a pin in his lower back. Prodrive mechanics will be assisting Littlers PFL Motorsport outfit, while Hyundais former WRC team manager Paul Risbridger heads up the squad. Littler, whose Pro co-driver has yet to be named, confirmed his rally links had played a part in the decision to jump from VWs to British GT. The first time I drove a competition car with my false leg was last year, and I fell immediately in love with it, so next year were stepping it up, he told Autosport. I started speaking to Prodrive in the summer and a lot of the engineers that I used to rally with are still working there so it was like being part of the family, and its spurred me on to make this jump into British GT. I considered GT4, but the noise, power and thrill of GT3 is just something very special. Littler, whose Aston Martin has required no modifications, believes his British GT programme will further emphasise that barriers no longer exist when it comes to injury and disability. The biggest modification was when I asked the engineers to cut 10mm off my spare leg because I was struggling to withdraw it from the throttle, he said. Due to it being a sequential gearbox I have no clutch to use and Im used to left-foot braking from rallying. Its easier to drive the GT3 than my road car! I struggle for feel with the throttle, but as Niki Lauda says you feel a race car through your arse. I can feel the revs and response through the chassis so you adapt quickly.
