  • What I Want for Christmas Is...

    This is from an email I got today. Clue - This is NOT stainless steel....

    ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS A...

    Have you ever seen one of these?







    It's a Mercedes Benz owned by an Abu Dhabi

    Oil billionaire (naturally).

    Featuring the newly developed V10 quad turbo

    with 1,600 horsepower and 2800nm of torque

    0-100km/h in less than 2secs, 1/4 mile in 6.89 secs

    running on biofuel.


    That is NOT stainless steel, people; it is WHITE GOLD!

    Ummm......If that were White Gold it would weigh a shit-ton.....Considering that the SLR has a carbon fiber shell....I would say that this was a horrible move.....Even if it does look sweet.
    200 mph or bust.......

          White gold or no, it don't go 6.89 with only 1600 hp.

          I'd almost put money on it that its a wrap.

            I was impressed enough with the stocker that showed up at Pacific Raceways a couple of years back that ran 11.04 stock.

            White gold, huh? Three words: Smash And Grab.

              I was wondering about that....1600 HP? No, I don't think so. No. I seriously doubt that. You know stuff in the mail (and on the net in general), you have to be skeptical. I don't think anything you can drive on the street makes 1600 HP. No way.

                I'm pretty sure F-Bomb makes 1600hp at full boost. As well as many others.

                  Yep, peewee, this is the 21st Century and it happens, pretty regularly now and for much less than you imagine.

                    I'm still amazed that movies are in color. Man, that is really neat. How do they do that?

                        I guess my F150 truck doesn't have one of those. It'll go if you have all day to get to it, but it won't hardly get out of the way of a train in a pinch...

                        No, 1600 HP is foreign to me. Unimaginable.

                          Gold is super cheap in Dubai. Guys I have worked with have paid $400 for gold chains and bring them home and get them appraised for thousands . Unfortunately I haven't made it there yet.

                              I'd be paranoid about parking it anywhere save for a guarded vault.

                              My luck, there'd be a line of people waiting to key it to the point of just having the driveline and seats when I came back to it......damn Gordon Liddy and his Rosland Capital commercials.
