Kev's the only Guy I know who displays the same sort of rage normally seen in a woman at a certain time of the month,strange!

There is however something else that's unusual with Kev,and slightly bizarre, unlike a woman who's normally grouchy for 3 - 4 days every month,Kev has pre menstrual tension 24/7 and 365 days of the year

Kev probably saw his penis in the mirror, that's why he's so grumpy.

ok 10k, yes ...


But nothing more!!!!...


I can get a nice 2nd hand e92 M3 for 23k ...

and I'd chose an e92 M3 over that Volvo!...

It's mainly the price that they've decided to charge for it that got me p1ssed off... Just because they are making only 7 doesn't justify that price!....IMO of course!....

By the comments, I can assume that you guys like it? ....So you guys will be paying 200k for that Volvo?!

And don't tell me that Andrew is selling the SLS for this!!!! ....That would be THE joke of the year!

Unfortunately he did try and drive over to see me tonight, but his 2.0i had a HPFP issue on the way over and he's stuck on the M6

I was so looking forward to a good reaming. He had some pent up aggression he wanted to unload today - can't for the life of me think what might have gotten him so wound up...

I'd been too selective with the threads I've been opening up I guess. Today was my first introduction to him. It didn't go well for him in the end, if I remember correctly...

In any case, . Oops.

Why have they wasted so much money frigging around with a v6 with massive turbo lag when they could have just stuck the lowest tune of the noble engine in there. Twin turbo v8, already running off production lines and I bet little to no lag.

Spend the money elsewhere, might be fast but still a Volvo! C63 or XFR so much nicer

I do think you're missing the point. People pay for exclusivity.

Given they are selling 5, and only 5 - I promise they will all sell. This is a car that someone like a Jay Leno would just "have" to add to his collection.

Regardless of the stats (which are impressive but not staggering) - these cars will sell.

If they'd made 500 it would have been much trickier of course, when you consider that the purchase price is almost Aventador territory and would buy either of a nice house outright or close to 3 F10 M5s. Heh.
