There's at least one of those here. It's a great looking car and sounds SICK! There are also a few Ferrari California's here, that is a truly sexy car.

Great looks, but I think they got the rear end wrong, especially the tail lights.

I did get a kick out of Clarkson shooting out of the open door in that TG episode though!

They're both quick cars. One is appreciating quickly, the other depreciating nearly as fast
I'm with Jim total poser mobile

No doubt a techno-force but after seeing one in person, looks very Japaneseish.

I like them, I see one almost weekly, not this one, it was at Cars and Coffee in Irvine, but another silver one I see a lot.




and then there was this MB.

One car shows that you have class..... The other is showing that you have two less letters.

I'm going to win one on the 14th in a hospital lottery. Checked the rules and told the wife "no you have to take the prize, no cash equivalent allowed"

Dead sexy car.

My uncle once had a Gull wing. He traded it on a 265 GTB and if you can believe it traded it for a brand new 928s4 in '87. Ouch!
