Outstanding!

Icons pretty well sums that up Colin. I see new Land Rovers / Cruisers often but seldom a Spitfire in such condition. That is an amazing piece of footage, especially the finish!

LOVED IT! The very last line is a corker: "Best of three?"

I marvel at the beauty of the Spitfire in flight. They look so perfect that the impression is that had man not created the Spitfire, nature would have.

Actually Dave 'Nature' had a huge part in play designing the aircraft wing.

I had read that. It was clearly inspired by nature.

On any given day, I can't decide which is more beautiful; the Spitfire or the Mustang. It usually depends on which one I'm looking at at the moment.

The Range Rover I can take or leave...but if I would take it, it would be grand theft because I definitely can't afford to buy one.

Real thing between these two aircraft was 'home defense,' or long range bomber protection. Both (and others) were surpurbe at the job. The Brit 'Hurricane' was the heavy lifter, not the 'Spit.'

Goodness that new Range Rover has some Grunt.
The Poms are good at thinking these thing up.
I've watched where another Fighter racer a Red Bull Open Wheeler.
I can also remember another one I think it was The Top Gear Crew who done a similar thing with a Porsche.
