      Just for context, I had a Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 back in the day. It was a high 6/low 15 vehicle and was one of the fastest SUV's of the late 90's early 2000's. That kind of speed in a SUV is crazy....

      I bought a Prius for my wife in 2012 for a few reasons

      1. It is acceptably reliable transportation
      2. There was not a significant premium over a like vehicle
      3. Hatchback utility/decent space...

      Awesome, would go perfectly next to a F1 in a great collection. The LaF FXX K is just going to be so much more bonkers, with its V12 wail.

      It's a good time to have $100m in the bank.

      Nice. My mom had a 02 XJ Sport (the NA version of the XJR) and it was nice and handled well. I wonder if I would have liked it better if it had +90 hp and torque (Of course). Hers was a steaming turd...

      What he said. 08s are pretty good too, but the idrive is marginal at best.09s I believe have better Bluetooth connectivity. Mine has been fine mechanically

      Call em, you never know, they may be willing to deal on the cars that have been for sale for 17 years.

      It's freakin awesome. The manual and the xi aren't perfectly suited but sounds like a great car. Has the car sat for a while or has it been a slow 21k?

      Obvi there may be some gremlins...I'd buy...

      I've had 2 cars making 400 ft lbs around 3k RPM (Jeep 5.9 Grand Cherokee, modded, 335xi tuned) and its just fantastic around town.

      So 400 ft lbs at 3k RPM is what I like

      That would EASILY get you there.

      I did 12.2 on a 1.76 on all seasons with a tune and dual cone intake. In June. On a crappy track.

      Downpipes, turbo inlets and a more aggressive flash would...

      I'm more like skinny arms Rob Lowe and I would love to have a 700 hp Shelby Raptor. I may not be having any mayonnaise but I'll call you bro after the first drive!

      I had a 97 (TJ) and my dad has a 15 (Unlimited). His has a hardtop and mine was a soft top. The hard top on the new ones is modular (not sure if it is on the 2 door) and can become a targa quickly....

      The 918 Thread

      So I was reading the 17,000 post thread on FChat about LaFerrari/P1/918 and all but the hardest core of racers are SERIOUSLY impressed by the 918. Its low speed and corner traction are unlike any...

      How is it way way way overrated? It's freaking fantastic. Even in xi form. The N54 and N55 are two of the BEST engines ever made in terms of flexibility and power. Fuel pumps and injectors be damned....

      pure craziness. hooking a spinal cord to spinal cord is stupid. We all have different #'s of neurons...it'd be like plugging 2 wiring harnesses from different cars and expecting the wires to do the...
