Picked up a bottle of this for a New Year's Eve dinner. Always wanted to try a Quintarelli red (I've only had the white) - can't wait.
I like Ramey's chardonnays, and check out Liquid Farm if you can find it.
Kenjiro Suzuki does the same thing - there's a pocket hidden in there.
You don't know what you're talking about. CTS-Vs attract enthusiasts. It's also easy to get the car into the 10s for ~$5k, and a lot of owners do. Also, for what it's worth, I drive one and I wasn't alive during the Carter administration.I'd bet you'd be far more likely to find a M5 or E63 blocking the flow of traffic in the left lane, driven by some asshole who just wanted the most expensive midsize German sedan on the lot.
When I was a kid I used to dream about having a car (Infiniti Q45, for some reason) with an all chrome exterior. Now, if I discovered I was a secret oil sheik the first thing I'd do after I left the Versace store would be to order a McLaren 650S Spider in a Newport color scheme: + Green and black pencil stripe body, gold accents, white walls.
I'm not sure technically how it works. The way it feels to me is that if you accelerate aggressively, you can feel the boost building with the supercharger (quickly) at the same time that revs go up. If you come off the throttle, though, revs aren't instantly going to drop, but the boost immediately does.When the boost is on, you can definitely feel an added push of torque on top of the crazy amount that was already there, and if you stay on it for more than a half...
In pictures, at least, the i8 does nothing for me - it's like what someone in 2005 thought a BMW supercar would look like in 2020. The fake engine noise piped in through the sound thanks. I think I'm old.
Yeah, I think NA is cool too, but the supercharger on my V is pretty awesome. Driving around town, you never notice it. However, if you get on (and stay on) the throttle a little bit...the PSI needle jumping as the supercharger kicks in, feeling that extra wave of torque rolling in behind you, the crazy whining's great.
5.2L naturally aspirated flat-plane crank V8. 8250 RPM redline (!!!) $48k. I want this thing so bad.
Had another bottle from the case I bought of 2012 GB Burlotto Langhe - has a sort of dried orange peels, roses, and cherries floating in an indoor pool thing going on. So good, and an incredible value as a daily drinker.
