Anyone want to lend their 460 for a photo shoot.  Half a day in the Peak District w/c 23rd November.

It will be a backdrop in a series of pictures.  A bit of fun.

Any engine/colour.   

Respond here and I will put you in contact.

Fair point.

Essential trip?

Either way, the gig will come back some time...

If you live close I can't see a problem, if the wipe surfaces after they've used it, windows open etc

Talking about the Grenadier, I read that ineos are seriously looking into producing a hydrogen fuel cell powered version.

That's the future - maybe MB will go the same route for the G.

Didn't Arnie have a 1000HP electric G?  I mean Terminator Arnie, not GWOA Arnie.

While there is still oil coming out of the ground, I don't see the combustion engine going too far away.  But I like idea of a V8 powered G without the fuel bill.

...found it... https://youtu.be/AfHZHI6QpTk

Battery's have quite short lives and use up rare lithium and other rare earth metals, the costs of these are often borne by the poorest in these countries Congo being a good example ditto Bolivia where the most plentiful Lithium is located

Well done scouseg for providing the G reference.  It looked wet, but not that challenging ;)

Re: 460 G Photoshoot... Peak District

No worries 

From what I heard it was a good two days setting up and filming there, it had previously been very wet so some cars had to be towed up there into position but it all looked good with VBH at the front of the shop 

She's aging well.....laugh

Did the Ineos move under its own  power?

Also Vbh said 1979 for the G, thought  a bit earlier?..

The g got to its place under it's own steam without getting stuck 

Can't really say much else
