    I am in the market for a new sport sedan as a daily driver for my commuting around 50 miles/day and have a budget of $1,5000,000, thinking of getting the Bugatti Galibier. Not sure how it'd perform in NY snowy winter. What do you think? Any other suggestions? kthanxbai.

    I think a used Eclipse would be a better buy. More sporty and fun to drive.

    You guys don't like it? I think the chrome/mirror thing is ugly, but the design looks niiiiiiiiice.

    $1.5M Russian SUV Features Diamonds, Whale Penis Leather

    You can stroke big penis for cheaper. You can stroke mine with a low starting bid at $1.0million

    Sorry, a used Eclipse jet. Just to clarify.

    I think it's a decent shape, but the grille and chrome ruin any sort of class that they may have been shooting for.

    I think it is ugly. I won't be able to give my performance analysis until, in Styleforum fashion, I read what Jeremey Clarkson has to say and try to pass it off as my own opinion.

    The trouble with wale-penis-leather is that no matter how often they are polished, you'll never get rid of the smeg smell.

    The sedan doesn't look as bad as one would think. I wish they refused to go overboard on the chrome, otherwise the basic design of the car is really somewhat attractive.

    Sadly, it was not to be. The hilarious press release:


    "We have no any ideas to kill the whale or something like that. All we want - to make just luxury car. Real luxury car which will be world number one car. Our brand was started at 1869 when in Riga was opened Coach Factory or Russo Baltiysky Vagonnij Zavod - PBVZ, and first products was luxury train coaches. At 1907 was made a decision to open Car Department, and at 1909 first car left factory - the name of this car was RussoBalt. This was luxury and sport cars. At 1911 specially for Monaco Rally car got french style name - RussoBaltique. At 1912 factory made world first 4 x 4 wheel drive car, and at 1914 - armored car. All we want to unite luxury and armoring traditions of RussoBalt factory in one car, which brand celebrated 100 years now. At 1922 RussoBalt was renamed to PROMBRON' (ex.RussoBalt).

    We just looking for most expensive products for this car - and that's why we choosed whale penis leathure when we checked it is most of most. After wave of protest we realised our mistake and make a decision not to use natural leathure at all. We will focus on world most advanced nanotechnologies to achieve interior highest quality using artificial materials which also was never used for cars. We want to tell our hello to all whales: "Our Sea Brothers! We all know that earth are stand on three whales - we will keep You live! We don't Earth fall down to Ocean!"

    Also we make a decision to pay more attention to glass and on our new car model we will use glass which will be made by special technology - from artificial grown chrystals, which will be gold sputerred to cut IR and UV rays, which make driving inconvinient when sun shine.
