^Yikes!

I had my car winterized today at Mr Lube.  I pulled out of the bay and then it stalled out.  Every time I tried to put it in drive and give it gas, it would stall out!  I managed to coast to the entrance bay again.  "Buddy " tries to tell me it sounds like I'm having transmission troubles. :blink:  

Then it was as if a light bulb went off in his head and he asked me to pop the hood.  He touched something (I have no idea what) and problem solved. :lol:

The guy almost gave me a heart attack. :lol:

Swiss businessman Ueli Anliker paid $10.9 million for this blinged out Mercedes. :rolleyes:

The supercar is named "Anliker McLaren SLR 999 Red Gold Dream". It has  24-carat gold on the wheels and headlights. The body has 25  layers of red paint with 5 kg of gold dust worked into it. And the car's  supercharged 5.4-liter engine has had power boosted from 640 bhp to 999  bhp - giving it a top speed of more than 210 mph (340 km/h).

You know, I'm all in favor of spending your money however you want, but that thing's just ugly.
Yes, I am an economist. Yes, I do frequently sing "Can't Buy Me Love". No, I don't see any contradiction there.

I really like both of ME's last two entries, but I can't figure out the angle of the headlights on the first.

But U, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? Really?

^^^Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was my first thought too. :lol: That wasn't, UoR11.  It was Mr Dust.

So, this car is 100% electric.  The cost?  Half a million dollars.  It is set for release sometime in July, 2012.

If the average "Joe" usually spends what, $30,000 on a vehicle and takes about 5 years to pay it off?  That means this Tesla S better be road worthy for life to make worth the purchase price! :headshake:

Just to be clear....I cannot ever imagine wanting a car badly enough spend $10.9 million - ever.

But, I do think it would look very classy if it were black instead of red?

The more I think about it that Mercedes would have looked better in any dark color.   Why he chose red is a mystery to me.
