In what must have looked and sounded to motorists on the M6 like an invasion of The Swarm, a parade of 50 enthusiast gems leaving a charity event were caught shooting down the on-ramp and merging into traffic. There were plenty of Porsches joining the 959 and Ducktail above, Aston Martins going back to the badboy V8 of the last millennium, a Ferrari Testarossa, a TVR and numerous other Easter eggs.

There were not, however, plenty of turn signals, with someone counting just five among the fifty engaging in proper use of the blinker. One reason put forth for that is the same reason we're posting this video, which is from last Summer, below: "because supercar." Enjoy.

      "proper use of the blinker" Get on with you. According to UK driving rules you signal only when it is necessary, not as a pavlovian response. That doesn't even mean you should signal when someone can see you -- it means you signal when it is necessary to indicate that you are intending to perform a manoeuvre. I have no doubt that many, if not all of the drivers above hold IAM licenses, or if not, would certainly pass the Advanced Motorists test. Why is that distinction important? It produces drivers who are better observers of the conditions around them; who don't assume that just because you've signalled that everyone is going to make way. Whereas in the US we just have nutters who can't be bothered to signal, and who assume that everyone's going to make way for their bit fat arse dooley.

        If you are to lazy to use your blinker when you are merging, changing lanes or turning then your probably not paying attention as you should. Use it all the time it\'s really not that hard. And turning it on after you have already turned into the turn lane doesn\'t count.

        I'd argue that though it's not strictly necessary, it's much better to be in a habit of signalling anyway since so much of driving is monotone. Indicating is not, as you suggest, something that guarantees people are going to make way, but it does give them to opportunity to.

      I am going to the wrong charity events. They are all rather dull.

      What is crazy is that even though the Lotus is relatively cheap, it looks exotic as all hell, more exotic than most of the expensive cars out there.

      Still the best sounding is the 360 Modena CS or the 430 Scud's.

      They all drive better than Justin Bieber, at least. But you can tell many of the owners are douchebags as well.

      I'm not sure this is a bonafide Super-car Parade, but it's cool none-the-less. For the record, I did see a few super cars, a few side-kick cars, and then a few pedestrian cars. However, it didn't lessen the experience for me. I am sitting at my desk saluting these guys because it's evident they love their cars, and that's cool. Just as Henry Adams saw the Dynamo in Paris in 1900 and exclaimed the Dynamo to be "entirely new [technology]" so too is our current automobile offering. I.e. Everything is Awesome and people still complain.

        Why would you salute stupid idiots passing on entrance ramps, cutting each other off, cutting in front of lorries, and in general hooning it up on a public roadway? Should put Gatso's on the entrance ramps.

      The only true Supercar was the Porsche 959, the rest were GT´s and Sportcars but no supercars

      That black MP4 came really close to taking out one of the R8s.. Had that R8 driver not been one of the careful ones those two would have wrecked.
