Wonder how much that thing is going to cost.

Life is too short to ride anything but an R1

In memory of FastBlueR1...RIP

Holy sh**. Now that be pimping.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

My busa will still take it. Put me on Daves turbo busa and I'll make that car look even sillier

Hmmmm.... sounds mightly similar to the MAclaren F1 that was made almost 10 years ago. Same doors, although a roadster layout. Might be the same hgih reving 6 Liter V-12 motor. I wonder if they will try the 3 seater concept. I thought that was pretty badass. Looks cool. I'm guessing it has a carbon fiber chassis and weighs around 2200lbs. 3.8 seconds is pretty quick even with 600+HP.

The mclaren was powered by a bmw sourced v12, not mercedes.

I think that front end looks hideous. Mercedes needs a new logo.

Give me a CL65, and with the money left over I could pay off my student loans, buy a house, and a few bikes to boot...

Someone buy PJ glasses, either that or take away his porn, he's going blind from self abuse Great front end. I guess you think Jaguar should get a new symbol also?

I was just reading about the CL 65. That thing is pissed off. And the best/worst part? The enging as delivered is DE-tuned because the trans can't take it. Holy shit, if 612 hp is de-tuned sign me up!

Life has no instruction manual. Parts and labor can be impossible to find. Many go down the road with parts that are in need of service. A breakdown is eventual.

I like the jaguar, the mercedes symbol looks out of place on that car.
