Wow, nice catch!

Funny how the rear lights aren't "final" yet. Also cool the way the rear wing slides up. I don't like these five-spoke wheel hubs very much.

why am i in the topic? :P

Oh, because we discussed your current car, at length, a few weeks ago (or months?) so I thought I would suggest one of these for your new car...

The Yellow one, seems to have different lights than the black and silver ones.. If you could afford one of these cars... a replacement tire assembly wouldnt be a problem... Probably the dealer would offer replacements for free, or reduced rate, to get the commission on one of these...

I like the whole rear. That big long area where the V10 engine lives... Must handle like a dream, haveing the weight of the engine right over the drive wheels like that...

Well these arent practical cars, anyhow, so maybe these should be considered in addition to your current car...

if i had all the money in the world i think i'd still be satisfied with a new m5 (modded to be awd perhaps).

Um, last time I checked the Carrera GT more like $340,000 or more. If it's really $160k I might start saving up. It would be a little ridiculous though because I don't own a house yet and I have an M5 and a new boat arriving in 2 weeks. As a former independant software contractor now permanent, I've always held portability as one of my strongest assets for survival. The ability to just pick up and go off to a new job both by renting and not owning a home and also by not being married or having any kids. Luckily as a guy I'm not feeling the "ticking clock" of time running out to have kids, although my current girlfriend has been piling on the pressure.

I still wouldn't mind the Mercedes SL55AMG. Nothing like a retractable hard top.

Honold, can one really have an M5 modded for 4WD? I've seen monster garage and I'm not sure I'd want to do something like that to my baby.

For a while my company car was a 911 Turbo. When I was yournger I drove a 944 Turbo (951). When things slowed down I went to an Audi, not a VW. German cars rule. Porches rule. I had a few opportunities to drive both a 355 Spider and 360 Modena, neither holds a candle in real-world driving (read: dirty roads, rain, rough pavement, etc.) The 911 Carrera 4 is THE daily driver sports car. I've ridden in M5's and they feel a bit rougher around the edges.

Porches for my sporty days and Audi for my more refined days

VWs when I'am in the poor house !

Hi, as we're on the topic of "mad" cars I fancy one of these.  Reputedly going to cost 1,000,000 euros!

Seb

I didnt even realize France made sports cars like this... (I think its homely too) but it seems to stack up very well agianst other supercars...

(I kinda thought everything france knew about supercars could be printed on a matchbook, "buy german or italian cars")

Bugatti is actually part of the same group as Audi and VW (as you can tell from the w16 engine). But those power figures actually look a lot lower than what I had seen before. Something like 1200bhp and 1350lb/ft.
