Here you go - only the YouTube video code gets inserted between the tags. Typically that's the part between the equals sign and question mark - like this: =yfOfotByxaM?

Alex Penfold had these photos to share:

Well that pretty much sums it up. He got a black (could that be fire black?) car and likes to shop at Harrod's, buying more than can be loaded into the boot. Looks like chocolate interior with light contrast stitching.

His configuration along with that of Lewis and Jenson used to be viewable on the website. I recall it being Fire Black.

Actually it seems we are both wrong. I just discovered I had saved the images they shared online.

Jenson's appears to be Carbon Black, as did the car he was spotted with.



Lewis spec'd out this one:



And it was Frank Stephenson who had configured the Fire Black car:



I don't have one for Ron - not sure they ever shared one?

I lied... :eek:



Ron must have the same difficulty spec'ing out a 12C that I have had. Too tough to choose something and settle on it with all the great options available.

Not being familiar with this term, I looked it up on Wikipedia:

In British slang an anorak ( /ˈænəræk/) is a person who has a very strong interest, perhaps obsessive, in niche subjects. This interest may be unacknowledged or not understood by the general public. Although the term is often used synonymously with geek or nerd, the Japanese term otaku or the American term "fanboy/fangirl" are probably closer synonyms.

It's worth saying that the term Anorak was sort of derived from people who Train Spotted for a hobby. They used to wear Anoraks in the 1960's as they typically stood outside in all weathers as they spotted train numbers but knew everything there was to know about each steam engine, it's performance,pulling or hauling power, top speed, who designed and built it and which coal worked best in the boiler.

Yes, very similar to MP4-12C early adopters.:D

Thats the one!!
Ron Dennis' Pure McLaren configuration was "Titanium Silver colour, carbon fiber body upgrades super lightweight wheels, silver calipers, full leather option in carbon black, nav+audio option..."

Reference: McLaren Automotive: Preconfigured Ron Dennis

(I had it saved! :D)

So like- truth-be-told, who's gonna say no to him anytime when he asks for a set of ANY keys (namely remote fob) at Woking? ;)

John Hegley (English poet, very funny) does a great poem about train spotters, it begins "that's right, we wear anoraks, but it's a passion, not a fashion Show"
