Cars We Drive! - Page 413
also less extreme but saw this older guy a couple weeks ago, legitimately had to be in his 90's; suspenders, plaid shirt, corduroy pants and golf beret with the fuzzy ball on top, shuffling through the grocery store parking to his mkVI gti, the guys at the local VW dealer remembered him because he had someone helping him walk when he purchased it. They said he came in asking for the new GTi, not a golf or rabbit, he wanted the tuned up trim. awesome.
yeah they are massive, like 15 something inches. The RS6 has brakes like that too. Still cracking up about seeing that RS6 yesterday burble in and the little Japanese lady looking like my mother in law getting out of it. Does anyone else's mother or grandmother drive a twin turbo V10?
I wish can't remember my grandparents on my fathers side ever owning a car and my other granddad had 4 Corolla's all in blue (he did own a Saab Turbo back in the seventies though).
Saw a guy in his late sixties the other day driving an SLS in front of him was a brand new S-class with what looked like his son both in black and both on danish plates (the SLS is north of 500k$).
I think somebody asked here recently about buying those 458 Challenges with the plexi siding windows and the dropped monoball suspensions and centerlock wheels and slicks; I have no idea how this guy got his plated, first time I've seen one this way. Definitely baller status, either way. It's raining here this evening so I bet getting home was a bitch, lol.
I'm still pondering this. When Ferrari of Manhattan took delivery of one in their showcase, I got to hear it idling. Shit is seriously loud, one could hear it two blocks away (which I did), and I can't imagine that the 458CS would be street legal with the volume of its engine. After a minute or two, you could smell the exhaust, so I can't imagine it would pass any emissions tests either. I agree that one looks just like a 458 Challenge should, but there must have been some serious modifications to make it legal for the road.
1. Buy Standard 458 in red, and buy a 458C
2. Put your legal number plate on your illegal racer.
Let's be honest, your average traffic cop or speed trap won't be able to tell the difference when the radar says "Red Ferarri 458 2012".
Pretty sure this guy was being a douche by driving a Challenge on the street to go park it at a hotel for lunch, but I'm also sure it's not his main bitch, not by any means.
