Secret Super Car Cave - the 'Miura Man'

13 000 Vaatamised 524 tuh

Welcome to Car Caves, where The Late Brake Show explores interesting car dens and garages. Episode 3 of this playlist visits Bedfordshire, where Kevin Johnson - aka Miura Man - opens the doors on his characterful barn conversion full of heavenly mid-engined supercars. This private tour was of huge interest, because Kevin (originally from Wales) owns the kind of supercars normally associated with vast collections. He is not a collector - he is a supercar driver.

Kevin bought most of his cars when they weren't particularly desirable - like the Ferrari F50 and Porsche Carrera GT. Successes in business 20 years ago meant he jumped from driving a Ford Sierra 1.8GL to buying his first Ferrari - a 456 2+2. Nothing in between. This began his journey into owning exotic cars with particularly charismatic drivetrains.

    The cars are amazing, your presenting and video work was excellent but the star of the show here is Kevin. I could watch somebody talk about their collection the way he does all day, so much sincere passion and love for the engineering and craftsmanship & all the cars have a story and a meaning for him. Awesome video

      Agreed. I have to say, the 250 GTE has somehow escaped my attention for nearly 50 years and I almost cried when I saw it! It is the single most beautiful vehicle I have ever seen. Thank you Kevin (and Jonny) for putting a smile on my face and a tear in my eye...

    Another excellent episode (probably the best that I’ve watched so far) So nice to see such modesty and passion; that’s real car ownership ! I still love my 95 E36 328i - it’s not what it’s worth in money terms but how it makes you smile every time you drive it 👍

    The Porsche segment was excellent, but the owner needs to know that when he leaves the rear spoiler up when the engine is off, it still supplies pressure to hold it in place. It will cause the seals to fail being under constant pressure. #ddd#srautogroup

    I've never understood this 'midlife crisis' clam/accusation. How is having a passion and enjoying yourself a crisis? Why is enjoyment, pleasure and fun only seen as the preserve of the very young? A midlife crisis would be giving up on life and stagnating infront of trashy tv. He's not having a crisis, he having an absolute hoot!

    I've seen the F50 being driven as hard as possible. I was actually amazed at how controllable it looked. Another thing I noticed was the car correcting itself with a barely noticable lift. Love that car. The new lambos are nice and sound good but they're lacking something compared to the old ones. I think that's true of many modern cars. They lack that feeling.

    Sadly from 2030 on all combustion cars including classics will be banned from public streets in entire EU and Scandinavia :-( In Germany the Green Peoples Party gave order to shorten fuel supply from 2025 on by reducing all conventional fuel stations to only one state operated central gas station per city or county. Now they want to slow down all the gas station fuel pumps from 20 litre per minute to 2 litre per minute...From 2027 on in the EU certain car spare parts will be banned too....as exhaust systems, turbo chargers and even some engine and gearbox oils...California and New York will do the same from 2027 on.... So no investments should be done in oil burning cars any longer....They even created a new kind of crime here, called emissions and smoke crime. :-(((

    I love exotic cars too and stocks are one way to make money. ,,AMAZON: Yep, I bought a ton on the dip. It's getting cheaper relative to its current earnings (half compared to last year). Amazon invested $14 billion in the last quarter alone, the same as it spent in 6 months before that. It is a do not sell stock. ...With the Delta virus coming at full speed ahead, pandemic sales will make a comeback. Amazon is investing so much money, that no competitor will ever be able to catch up. Amazon's not going anywhere so I know that eventually it will come back. Fidelity considers Amazon as a large growth company (probably because as big as it is, it still only has 7% of the retail market) Get on board or be runover, it's up to you.

    FINALLY a guy who appreciates his cars for what they are AND uses them. 🙌🏻 Far too many know very little about what they have besides it being expensive and much less use them. This guy is a proper geek and I say that with admiration. If I were to change one thing it would be the color scheme on the Stratos. In my humble opinion it would look much better in the tricolore colors. Other than that - brilliant! I’m off to polish on my wife’s BMW 328 now… 😆

Before leaving England in 1982 to live at that time in Chicago I spent a lot of time fishing the River Dee in Wales. Now living in Scottsdale, AZ with my Porsche’s and my wife’s Tesla, there are some incredible cars here in Scottsdale.
