Tight. My friend's dad just got an R8. He also has a Ferrari and several BMWs that I know of. An older son just got a new AW M3.

yeah, it was a red tesla. Sorry, but i didnt take any photos of the 2 fiskers that they had.

there were no stats for the R8 v10. however i read online that it should be around $180k

that yellow car was the dodge circuit. based on a lotus platform, its all electric


after thinking about the r8, i would be better served getting a stroker and diff change on the m3 and not spend the extra 80k.

Half those cars look like they are based on the Elise (I know the Tesla is related, but they all look so similar). The VW roadster looks great.

That last maroon one, WTF is that? Don't like.

That's the new honda hybrid I believe. I saw it on one of the magazines. The V10 R8 is amazing. It kind of sucks for the people that bought the V8 though. It will devalue their vehicles after having the R8 out for only one year. Bad move by Audi if they want to sell exotics. You never want to screw your clients.

LOL

I missed it this year, too. Last year, too. I went like 4 years in a row before that, but it kept getting more crowded and less compelling. Not to mention my free time has completely disappeared.

I wont hold my breath of next year then
... seems like $10 ticket cost was well spent on power gels and bars



... btw as a side note, Im still in awe! how better looking a E90 330/335i with 162s over this years edition. I'd like to maybe get a clean low mileage 07 335i in Monaco or Graphite with black interior and paddle shifter someday again

I think next year unless they're introducting the production version of the Chevy Volt and the X6 hybrid and new Efficient Dynamics vehicle from BMW I'll pass to probably. I've got more than enough to keep me busy car wise for a few years and then some.

it is based on the elise. The chassis is the same and the dimension is pretty identical. I was in LA visiting my brother when i stopped by the Tesla dealership. Sat in the car, checked it out. Just wouldn't want to spend 100k on that particular car.

Even the starshield they use is the same for both Manufacturers.


The dealership was nice though. It's def. niche market for the urban hollywoodian.
