I like the sound of the Elise GT1 better though...

I knew I'd seen the butt on the Exige V6 somewhere before... what goes around comes around.

Not that speeding is legal but Is it legal to drive around without license plate?

Was killing time this morning and ran across this:

EVO's Harry Metcalf touring the Pagani Huayra at the factory. THIS is ridiculous quality, engineering, ingenuity, etc. While the Venom does boast some crazy numbers, it is what is it.

Same price and look at the difference of ground up vs. borrowed and bolted.

Pagani started at the 1 yard line. Hennessy started at the opponent's 30. Both scored a touchdown, but which put together the more impressive drive?

that pagani is stellar!

Meh, $80-$100 ticket, doesn't go on your record (not a moving violation). I've only gotten 2 in 5 years.
