Insanity has a name - Welcome the SV12 R

LOVE the nautical themed interior. Seems like this will be the new trend. Panemera is the only production vehicle that offers this now (not sure of the Bentley's and RRs)

Rolls has the most nautical-influenced interiors by far. They look like yacht cockpits and use similar wood materials and gauge layouts. And I believe the steering wheels mimic the ones used in yachts.

I agree... the cayman does more for me than what this does. (still debating whether I want that as my second car). Although I almost j***** on the nautical interior.

Another thing, I have to say this, but MOST of the aftermarket kits that cost a bundle look very trashy, although this one is still bearable.

I see this grey S class around where I live with these huge Lorinser rims. Absolutely hideous. I have never understood the affinity to all things shiny by some people.

Cool

This car makes no sense to me.

A 4300 - 4500 lbs luxury sedan with almost a 1000 pounds of torque on a 5 speed slushbox.

Some granny/old man is going to kill someone with this thing.

i will use this opportunity to say that i have always hated anything by Gemballa. the wings and vents and body bulges they added to the CGT makes it look like a saleen mustang. so guady and festooned. the mirage GT looks like an athelete's car /rant.

I'm more worried about 62 year old Frederick McOldey DDS, plowing into someone at Costco in 1st gear.

I'll agree with you on Gemballa.
