On The Other End of the Spectrum...

I will not be buying one of these, however. They are rather tasty to look at, though...



Campagna T-Rex.

It's got a 1,650 cc BMW inline 6 cylinder engine under the hood carbon fiber bodywork. It has a 0-60 MPH time under 4 seconds. Plus it looks like something out of "Transformers Meets Fast & Furious." Something tells me this vehicle gets speeding tickets when it's parked.

It also starts in the mid $50K region, firmly where a Corvette runs. It's faster off the line than a 'Vette, but the bowtie will catch it on the top end - something that light isn't going to go more than 130 or so before it starts to take flight. Cargo capacity is also rather lacking - but I suspect the driver isn't really going to care. This is a vehicle in which to be seen.

Sure would be a nice break from the 911s and Audi TTs I see every day...

That is all.

Honesty, on first glance I thought it was a photo of a wrecked car of some sort.

Designed by someone schooled in Japanese motorcycle graphics. Yuck!

Take it to a body shop, and tell them to make it all one color. If a vehicle doesn't look good in one color, the designer should be fired. (from a cannon)
