On a set of black steelies. Add a nice sheetmetal bumper guard with a winch and a black snorkel going up the A pillar topped off with an LED light bar on the roof. SOLD!
hate the c-pillar kink (vert should fix this?), the fake side vents, the door handle placement and the ass-within-an-ass that everyone is doing these days.
like/love everything else. much more...
It's just so unique. The seating arrangement, manual transmission, NA engine, gold plated engine compartment, the trunks on the side. Plus the nostalgia!
Also, I'm not all about...
Christ mentioned that the 918 got better every time he drove it. Maybe they are constantly revising these cars? Maybe Ferrari was not done making adjustments. But I don't think Ferrari is worried...
The Ferrari looked like the old-world and the most work to drive fast but also seemed to be the most tossable because of the linear power delivery from that amazing V12.
The 918 is more about...
I like noticing the feeling of the lack of chassis flex, when driving onto an uneven driveway and feeling a wheel lose traction from lifting off the ground.
It has been reduced to a much more reasonable $3950.
I am OK with this:
Not a fleet, but City of NMB has a Huracan:
Here's hoping the Abarth has the right looks.
Agree on the Miata being much more coherent. The Fiat looks like an unfortunate mix of modern and retro touches that don't quite integrate well.
Mustangs used leaf springs. Paper is made out of leaves. Boom, economies of scale resulting in a cheaper book.
I'd rather have a lifted RR Ghost.
The 90's called, they want their tribal pattern tires back :laugh:
Saw the Volvo on the road the other day. Massive presence. It looks like nothing else out there. The (current) Q7 just looks like a big Audi, but I still prefer the Volvo over the new Q7 styling,...
The $100K reward must be symbolic without providing a VIN number. Half of the Aventadors you see in Miami, at least, have some sort of vinyl wrap. The car in question may not even be white any more.
The sports wheel is so much nicer. The standard wheel looks dated and too big, like it should be in a minivan.
That Miami Blue is amazing. If I were in the market I'd have a hard time choosing between that and Viper Green.
But the reason the car is $1.5M is due to customs taxes and registration costs, it is not the actual price of the car. So getting a stolen car will save you only whatever discount you get over the US...
