It says at the top he is from the United Kingdom / Ireland.

He says nothing about importing the car to the States (which would be a major undertaking)

6th Jan / 28th Jan here again...

Owe you an apology 16th Jan - speed read this one with the cynical bunny spectacles on and brain in power-save mode :-)

To be honest, having read it again, it does actually sound fairly genuine (unlike most of the other supercar reviews).

I'd still like to know how he imported it to the States though.

Well being an avid modifier I shall point out that Nissan Skylines and TVR's where never officially imported to the states, but there are plenty running around. I suppose you can do pretty much anything with that kind of money.

The F1 is the ultimate road car, but if I where a millionare for a week, I would have a Maybach for pootling about, and a Ford RS200 (Full Group B spec) for terrifying myself.

You people all need to get a life. Just believe that the guy has an F1 and stop trying to bring down the fact that you will never own one.

A rich person doesn't think about the money. I'm not saying anything about jealousy (which I don't see the point of talking about), but what I am saying is that when you compare a multi-millionaire with an average money-making person, you can see that spending money is a lot easier for the richest. Losing all of their money and then restorring is thousands of times easier than losing your $60,000 in paychecks and then trying to get back up on the ladder. What I'm trying to get to is that rich people do not care about the money they spend. Getting a million-dollar car is easy for them. Now considering that there are only six F1s released each year, there is almost no possible way to actually get one. I'd be surprised if there was more than two in the U.S. Once you run all of this through your head, you can understand that rich people don't buy exotics to use them as daily drivers, they buy them to MAYBE drive them once a week/month. Next time you consider telling people to "not waste their money," know that they actually have money to waste...

Umm, driving your supercar once a week/month?!?!

Waste or not, that's poser-rific. And yes, I'm envious of said posers!

Well, prepare to be surprised. Have a look at http://www.automotiveforums.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=577101 for a reasonably current list of F1s in the US. More than two. Sorry.
