Spotted in Beverly Hills

Yesterday when I was driving home from the grocery I spotted this in the rear-view mirror. Since we were stopped at a light I just had to jump out and snap a quick picture. I never thought I would see one on the road. Wikipedia has more info here:

Oh the insanity....

It would have been interesting if he/she would have gotten out of the Bugatti and took a snapshot of your truck.

Yeah, that car is tough. It has a second key (along side the driver side seat) you use to unlock extra horse power...

It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

I realize they're a dime a dozen, hehe, but maybe it belongs to: http://money.cnn.com/magazines/fortu...2362/index.htm

I'm wonder if that car will ever be taken above 100 mph. Sad all that horsepower will never get used.

The people willing to drop $1.4M probably won't bother with the speed potential (not that I know; I know some sickeningly wealthy folks, but no one dropping that much on a toy car).

Give me, or someone like me, the keys and I'll pass 100 pretty quickly. It's also a good reason an immature fool like me shouldn't buy one... Speed's addictive. My bike tops at 127mph indicated, and I was disappointed when I tried.

Those cars are pretty [and] wicked, though.
