Decided on my new car

Went to the British Grand Prix last weekend and spotted this, just need to save the 315,000 to buy it - it's a Mercedes SLR McLaren

Hell yeah

It's both a looker, and a mover

I might just buy an extra lottery ticket on Saturday now

Whoa, what's the deal on the pricing? I thought the SLR's were going for 600k and the F1's for 1 mil?

Hmm... lesse if I can boost the drooling a bit... guess who has hurtled one of those around a race track...

No Wylie... 779Nm isn't insane... it's darned rigth scary that's what it is... But the soooouuuund... Oh the sweet sound of that engine... it was actually best described by Jeremy Clarksson as the sound of the WW2 Messersmith figherplane...

But I really detest the brakes... there is NO middle ground... you either get no braking effect or a spline ripping tire squeling dead halt... it most of all resembles the sensation of running into a wall...

But it was throughly beaten by myself in the Viper a few minutes later as the owner took the wheel again... (migth not be totaly fair thoo, I was on full slicks in a prepared track car...)
