    I saw one of those last weekend in all black as well. Stunning, but I don't like it. It looks too much like a concept car.

    If that is the future of cars, we're all doomed. It's hideous.

    I saw this at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show. Sweet car, all electric right?

    Awesome! I'm not big into hybrids or electric, but I don't mind the I8 - crazy styling! :)

    I'm going to be "that guy" and just come out and say it: I love the i8. I would fawn over that thing like crazy if I saw one in the wild! I'm no German car fan - but this car hits all the right buttons for me!

    Was driving home from the carwash (it's Sunday!) and spotted this fella heading in the opposite direction. Of course, being the rare-car fanatic that I am, I turned around and caught up with him at a supermarket. It's a 1992 true-blue AMG and it was in awesome shape. (Around 30,000 kms!) Shipped from Japan, of course. He was about 75 years old, and he told me he hadn't tested out the top speed yet. :)

    Very nice! :D Not something very common around here (the true-blue AMGs that is!) What did he think of your Z, haha! :)

    He liked the Z very much. And that car was really quite awe-inspiring. He said the speedometer went up to 280 km/hr, and it went that high for a reason. :)

    Haha, it just seems amusing knowing you heard this coming from a 75-year old man :p

    While at the port today, I couldn't help but spot this bad ass mo-fo. Looked it over for a good half hour, trying to figure out what it was being used for. It looked brand new, yet had Swiss plates on it.
    Instantly thought of Glen and Ben...

    Briefly met the people picking it up. They were a mid 30's couple, from Switzerland, who took a year off to bring their CAMPER to Canada to go wherever they want to across this great land. It's a camper truck! The most bad ass camper I have ever seen. Just seeing the truck before I knew I could live in it, I was impressed. Now my mind is blown.
    What's this thing worth? $1Mil?

    why is it that. everywhere else in the world the campers are rugged, and military style. but in north America, we get these highway cruisers that aside from a speed bump arent ment for anything.
