1st UK 1M on 1addicts!

I got a call from my dealer today that my 1M had arrived!!!

So went straight there after work. And what a car!! Have never seen VO in person, and it just looked amazing!!

It was a bit torturing though as could only see but couldn't touch. Well not quite I was able start her up, sounded great!
Still have to wait till the 14th to take her home...

There were two other in VO and one in black. I have therefore seen all three in person. And trying not to be biased, in my opinion VO is the best colour! Followed closely by white and lastly black. I actually passed the black 1M and didn't even notice it.

My car was dirty as has just come off the transporter. I know there have been some great photos, however couldn't help myself. So here are a few...

Thanks man! You won't be disappointed! It looked stunning even though it was dirty!

It does have a slight red tone in certain angles. However it looked lighter than the photos.
