Red Gold Dream McLaren SLR 999

Let's examine the step-by-step approach to destroying a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren:

Step 1: Paint it bright red
Step 2: Use 24 karat gold plating on the wheels, trim, sills and all accents
Step 3: Install a cow-catcher on the front fender (you know the nice V-shaped wedge used by trains to fling about errant cattle wandering on the tracks)
Step 4: Slap a Ford Mustang wing on the truck lid
Step 5: Plaster the interior with more 24 carat gold on the dash, center console, steering wheel and throw in some rubies just to make it bling
Step 6: Coat the upholstery with gold flakes just to give it that little extra shine that makes the interior cabin so inviting

I'm not sure which made me yak first, the girl or the car.

Mercedes never would have designed that car if they had known this monstrosity would be the ultimate result.

Right now, Mercedes is developing a time machine just so they can go back and correct their mistake of selling the car to that dude.
