We did a lot of blagging, but as a result, we got on stands that were clearly for very rich people only. Cars that I would swap a kidney for as follows:

RR Dawn
RR Ghost EWB
RR Wraith
Aston DB11 in all black
Ferrari 812 in red
Lamborghini Performante
Lexus LC500
Alfa Giulia QV
Ford Fiesta ST
Ford GT in matt grey
McLaren 720S in, basically, BMW Carbon Black
BMW M760Li
Mercedes E63S estate
Mercedes AMG GT C roadster
Koenigsegg Regera in British Racing Green
JLR Velar
VW Golf R 3-door with P Zero Trofeo tyres
Audi TT RS Spyder
Alpine A120

Was it the tyres which made the Golf R stand out?

Along with the colour and the titanium tipped exhaust, Apparently mainland Europe gets a Performance Pack for the R.

When the tyres are the most exciting part of a car, you know it's a VW.

Getting on to the RR stand for champers and on to Ferrari's stand were exceptional feats of blagging!

We'd probably have managed Lambo too, but we spent too long at Ferrari ...

If I get to sit in an Aventador, I won't be too worried about champagne
