    Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 GTB?

    I guess this is primarily for the U.K. Rennteamers, sorry everyone else!

    We have a programme over here called "The F word"... now F refers to Food/[beep] as these are the presenter (ex-scottish footballer and now master-chef) Gordon Ramsay's two favourite things! The show is essentially a cooking show with participants working in a restaurant competing to have as many punters as possible pay for their food (of which they have the option).

    Annny way!... on the way to get something (probably vegetables or what not) the big "G" man stepped out into what possibly must have been the nicest looking 599GTB I have ever seen!! Not only did it sound devastating but that it was a nice change to see its lovely shapes in high-definition and not on some tiny "you-tube" window!

    What a car!

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 GTB?

    If the inside is beige and its license plate starts with S99 yes I heard it (and then saw it! ) going up Sloane street last night just past 9pm.
    Couldn't believe the noise it made!!!
    Pure magic!

    Come on here, just another 19 months to wait! (officially )

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 GTB?

    Fanch, how are you going to last 19 months? You have the patience of a saint! Seems like you only chat about the 599 on Rennteam!

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 GTB?

    I saw him a few months back at Sloane Square in a grey 599. Didn't notice the plate then...

    It's a stunning car indeed.

    I chat about the 599, I drive the 997

    Don't worry about the 19 months.
    Those are italian months, which means it could 14, 12, 6, go figure...

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 GTB?

    LOL

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 GTB?

    That guy has a show here in the US also - called "Hell's Kitchen". We also have "Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares" on BBC America...

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 GTB?

    apparently he is the most envied man in the uk...! Can't remember where I read that though...

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 GTB?

    Don't know about you jamesaug but I would hate to be Gordon Ramsay. He's ugly, arrogant and offensive with no class. Couldn't care less how successful a cook he has become.

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 GTB?

    ooh...I wouldn't hate to be him at all!

    He has been an incredibly succesful athlete playing for Celtic, he is a fantastic chef (or so it seems; Ive never personally tasted his food) AND he's obviously financially well off enough to drive a Hyandai Coupé... oops I meant a 599 GTB (I started this thread I should be nice to the car!)

    I'd like to think I'm better looking than him but as of yet I don't actually have a wife and kids...so he has fulfilled more of his primary evolutionary purpose than me!

    Yes he is arrogant...then again if I were at the top of my game in whatever I did..maybe I'd be waay worse than him! (don't jump on me for being honest here!) At least he speaks his mind... people like Monsiour Jeróme Clarkson who everybody loves to love (and I have met and dealt with in person) are light-years worse and believe you me...when the cameras come off...so does the persona; JC really doesn't give a [beep]!
    Just thought about something..I wonder if anyone of us anonymous Rennteamers is actually a celebrity of some sorts? I swear someone has the username: Kofi (annan perhaps? )

    Not according to your avatar!

    Just kidding, I'm sure you are better looking than Gordon Ramsey.

    I don't find Gordon Ramsay ugly at all. And him being arrogant, well who isn't? Sure, easy_rider may be an exception to the rule, but just as james has said, even JC can be an arrogant prick.

    V12HRO is the HROwen Ferrari demonstator car

    Hmmm, sounds as if Italian months have a lot in common with Italian horsepower.

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 GTB?

    Fritz, Italian months and Italian horsepower are more accurate than German weight fudging!

    The world is waiting for a lighter swoopadelic German sports car that sounds like the Valkyries. But those dull German car companies seem obsessed with making cars just for Fat Ladies.

    Did not the 997TT win the Eurofat award for greatest weight
    in the shortest possible wheelbase? Or was it a tie with the VW R32???

    Licht und Sport has been replaced by automotive currywurst eating contests! That must change immediately, I order it so!

    No more "extra cellulite" VW Golfs, CL, M6, or TT mini whale cars please!

    Rangers, I believe (the other half of the poisonous, bigotted murder capital of the UK).
    And he was rubbish, couldn't get a game.

    I don't mind his TV shows but imagine he's pretty insufferable in person.

    Bring back Keith Floyd !

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 G

    Thanks for the correction hellgelb..couldn't be bothered to check! Crap was he... isn't my life!

    Re: Anyone catch Gordon Ramsay and his black 599 G

    I've met him several times. In person he is very pleasant and not arrogant at all. Amazing how the public persona is often very different in private. As my Yorkshire granny always used to say: "Don't judge a book by its cover"!!
