Seamus McCabe with his the Ferrari F355 and Lotus Elise
What are you currently driving?
Ferrari F355 Red, Lotus Elise and Range Rover Khan.
Love at first sight, or just a means to get from A to B?
Always a love, it’s the only true Love, as they don’t answer back.
What’s under the bonnet?
F355 — 3.5 V8 380bhp
Petrol head or Sunday driver?
I don’t like the idea of being classed as a petrol head — but I guess I am!
What was your first car?
Toyota Corolla K30 4-door with go faster stripes and some hand-painted finishing touches. Followed that with a Hi-Ace Van with a touch of Pimp My Ride. It was great for the girls!
What else do/did you own?
Too many to remember — but a few nice machines stand out. I remember a BMW X5 Sport, BMW 850 and a BMW M3 Coupe.
Dream drive in dream location?
Lamborghini Diablo burned orange on Route 66 (Cannonball Run eat your heart out)!
Passenger you’d most like on a long journey?
Ah, I guess that would have to be my Polish girlfriend. She’s 20 years younger than me and purrs like my Ferrari. My two sons won’t be very happy with that decision — oh well!
Passenger you’d least like?
Ah that’s easy — that would have to be my ex-mother-in-law.
What’s on your playlist?
The ‘Final Count Down’, ‘Top Gun’ and ‘Driving Home for Christmas’.
