    When you need the Jaws of Life to GET INTO a car, that's just too small.

    Here´s what Messerschmitt produced as a successor to the legendary BF109, right after the last war. It´s a Messerschmitt "Kabinenroller". The red and blue cars in the background are FIAT 500s.




    This below "onewheeler" is called "Kettenkrad" and has been built during the last war. Many of these have been used by farmers as replacements for tractors later, which have been rare right after the war.

    How about a Lit Motors C-1 - "Rolling Smart Phone"?......"This vehicle combines the efficiency and freedom of a motorcycle with the safety and convenience of a car."

    If I'm honest, that is the best way to go for a three-wheel vehicle. And, you can tell folks that you drive a BMW without being a liar. (Classic show "Family Matters," in that one episode where Laura told Steve she'd go out with anyone who picked her up in a BMW. So, Steve rolled up in one of these. It's a genuine BMW.)

    A modern-day version would have to incorporate a reverse gear though. Something this version lacks.

    Here are a few pics from the NY Auto Show. It was awesome. I took 550 pics in 2 days.



























    The thing I really like is the matte finish on some of these cars, like the R8 above. It looks phenomenal in white. I think I like it better than glossy.



    I must admit, the yellow Enzo on the first page of this thread is hands down my favorite all time.

    It's a little too low to the ground.

    My brother-in-law drove an S,,
    he said its so refined, there really isn't any sense of speed.

    btw, when I saw the FF, I thought it was a one-off at first,
    haven't been up on my Maranello cars lately.

    You'll feel 0-100 in under 8 seconds.. Added bonus: you can now rent base model Panameras at Hertz, true story..

    Top Gear tossed one around a snow track; it has a very complex AWD system that's lower to the ground than any other, but it shuts off after 70mph, not ideal for inclement highway driving. It's probably the best looking shooting brake ever, but no one will remember it once Ferrari releases the F12..

    For that much, it better include a super-model who can cook, clean, do laundry, and not talk back except to tell me how incredible I am.

    The Lamborghini Ankonian concept. It looks like it could be a prop from The Dark Knight Rises.

    Nice! I love my 2009 Mazda6 V6 model.

    Overall, I like the redesign. But it troubles me that there's more than a bit of Hyundai styling about it.

    Anyone else noticed that Hyundai drivers have become more obnoxious than BMW drivers?

    I still have not figured out how to post pics here, but as far as Ferraris are concerned, the best looking newer model Ferrari is the 458 Italia. Its just got to be one of, if not the best looking Ferrari ever! Kicks butt on the street or track too.

    ^Its not quite up to the performance level of my next favorite, the Koenigsegg CCX or the now out of production Pagani Zonda F Roadster.

    That Lexus LFA is priced at like $400,000-$500,000, and Lexus will STILL lose money on them supposedly! Top Gear pointed out that it is way overpriced, even though they will lose money on it. You can get a much better super car for less, like a Lamborghini Gallardo Spider.

    But those cars are out of my price range anyway, however, I'd like to buy an awesome Cadillac CTS-V in the wagon form. 560 horsepower, huge Brembo brakes, magnetic ride control suspension, Tremec 6 speed transmission. Thats right, a manual trans in a Cadillac! This car set the all time record on the Nurburgring for sport saloon/sedans there, only beaten by 2 seconds over that 13 mile course by the much more expensive Porsche Panamera(which has a horrible looking back-end!). I'd bet that a Cadillac driver could take back that record though, as its only 2 seconds! So the CTS-V is faster and better handling than ANY other sport saloon car, and basically tied with the Panamera. Its faster than the AMG Mercedes, the BMW M5, the Maserati Quatroporte, the Aston Martin DBS, etc...... Thats saying something, and its much less money, and probably has a much better engine too! The Chevy/GM LS series V-8's have been tested at up to 1,200 hp without blowing up, on a bone stock bottom end/block, and that was the smallest version, the 4.8L! The CTS-V has the much larger version.

    Oh it's faster than the old M5, but there's a new kid on the block..

    Starts at $92K-ish.

    If you're looking something closer to the CTS-V's pricing, check the $71K Audi S6; same performance but through all four wheels..
