  1. Side profile screams Aventador. That looks bad.
  2. I get the business case. Squeeze a couple hundred million more out of the decade-old Aventador chassis and powertrain. Not sure you would want to pay close to $Xm dollars for a car that had an out of date transmission when it was introduced. Really cynical marketing ploy that has clearly worked, apparently they have sold all of them. It looks pretty good, its not Reventon ugly but you can clearly see Aventador because they can't move the hard points. The interior looks almost stock. It's a shame they would sully probably their most iconic car with a warmed over close out model. Feels like Jord
  3. None of the above. Get a used e63s Wagon. $3.5k RENNtech tune and you have close to 800 hp/torque monster that does 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds. 1/4 quarter mile is 10.8. I have a 2020 one. Best car I have ever owned. It's not close.
  4. Yes he does. Pretty arrogant to think he can improve on such an iconic design.
  5. I agree the AMG rides harsh, but where I live the roads are good so it's not a problem. That's said I think it handles well for a large car. Relatively speaking price wise it's a bargain compared to Panamera turbo s. With the Renntech upgrade, it's super car fast. I love it's sledgehammer nature. Gas mileage is awful, I'm averaging 12 mpg. Mercedes should have fitted a larger gas tank. My wife has had 3 BMW 3 series diesel wagons in a row, they are great cars. Shame BMW stopped importing them.
  6. I ordered the tune. Colour matching the calipers to the car. Red is stupid.
  7. Picked up an e63s last week. Love it and the attention it doesn't get. According to Renntech they actually make stock 685 hp and the 0 to 60 is 3.08, 0 to 100 7.29. A $3,500 tune gets you 773 hp/778 ft pds of torque, 0 to 60 2.8, 0 to 100 6.76.
  8. It's a VW group engine, I'm sure ABT could provide you with a solution. Not sure why you would need a tune on 640 HP SUV.
  9. I drove by a Costco yesterday morning around 7:30 am. There must have been 2,000 people in line hours before it opened. If that type of hoarding behauvior continues, rationing may be coming. The stupidity is mind numbing.
  10. That is next level. I always associate Pagani and Koenigsegg together as they came to market around the same time. The Zonda was a much better first effort, Koenigsegg had a kit car feel at the time. The game has moved on and Pagani hasn't adapted. This, the Jesko. The Hyuara is a dinosaur with only 800 HP and rocking a single clutch gearbox. It didn't move the game on from the Zonda. Should have built the Hyuara with a manual and carved out that niche.
  11. Having owned three Audi's, one I still own, they make BMW look like Lexus. Reliability is not good. I couldn't agree more, love the concept of a superfast estate, hate this execution. People who drive estate's want Q cars. Mercedes does it better, but even their styling is getting close to obnoxious.
  12. Thanks, got too much going these days to pay attention. Working on the second act.
  13. You really have to rev that cossie, not a lot of low down torque. It's a dog leg too, which is great. I'd still have the CLK, they are a bargain and will appreciate, especially as unupgraded motors continue to grenade. Another classic early 90's E500. I owned one for 18 months, stolen, seamless torque in it's era. Off topic, my friend that owns the CLK, built a 91 Audi RS2 Coupe. Imported all the Porsche and Audi factory parts and built a car that never existed.
  14. The 2 series is a remarkably good car. I had a lowly 228i as loaner for a week and was blown away by how fun it was. It's tiny and only double amputees can fit in the back. I didn't want to give it back.
  15. All good choices. I have a buddy that owns a CLK Black. Put the rear seats black in so he can take his kid to school in it. It's a sledgehammer, not a scalpel and all the better for it. It's an absolute blast to drive. Just got to get the head bolts upgraded. I'd add a 71 280 SE 3.5 Cab to that list.
  16. Barely....and no longer engaged on this site. More interested in the older cars, love the flaws and character. Not interested in driving a robot.
  17. Wasn't talking politics that destroyed this place.....well that and the botched "upgrade". I still prefer the old site.
  18. Totally inappropriate title. My wife and I were regulars at Lakers games when we lived in LA. When we lived in Los Gatos, we would go to Golden State games (when they sucked) to watch them. We were at the double-overtime game against Phoenix in the playoffs, the greatest game I have ever seen. Kobe sunk a 3 to tie the game to go overtime, sank another 3 to send it into double overtime, sunk another 3 to win the game in double overtime. The guy was a killer on the court. A true legend. Unbelievable work ethic. RIP. Such a shame his oldest daughter died and 7 other folks.
  19. Never liked the Huracan looks, Evo drives great but looks like it's the fat kid in the family.
  20. McLaren has four issues. Inherent unreliability. Ridiculous prices for replacement parts. Eat their young product strategy. Massive depreciation. Fast as hell, I like the 600 LT a lot, though I wouldn't touch one with a barge pole. A buddy of mine had a 650 LT Spyder for 6 months, spent 3 months at McLaren being "fixed". Ended up a lemon.
  21. I totally agree, Matt Farah's post drive review sums it up. Great value, more chassis than engine, time to ditch the low revving OHV engine, typical GM fit and finish. First year model that needs a lot of tweaking.
  22. It is a shitbox, wasn't this a liquidation sale of some African dictator's son?
  23. You are not getting a Huracan worth owning at your price point as previously noted. I always felt the Huracan looked "fat" personally and I am not a fan of the pressed carbon fibre look. Gallardos are great cars. I had one for ten years and all it basically required was maintenance and tires. I would look for a 6 speed manual as the e gear is clunky and the clutch wear is significantly greater regardless how carefully you shift. Also a pump can fail on the e gear and I believe it is close to a 5 figure repair. In 2006, the HP was bumped slightly and the gearing shortened among other im
