Is this a rare/good/speccial car, or is it just my knowledge limited


? :)

What's a 007 Kompressor? :?

Here's what I've seen over the last little while:

5 Series with Sport Pack... I think it looks pretty good.

CL 600 with ultra-special poser edition V12 Biturbo badge:

M Roadster:

E-Type?

Nice pics Craig!

Both the CL600 (500 bhp) and CL65 (612 bhp) actually use V12 BiTurbo engine. That E-Type is a nice MKI. :D

@Banii, dude, I have never heard of that thing before. I guess you just saw a normal 320 Kompressor one.

Thanks! Yeah, I know that both use the Biturbo V12's, but is it really necessary to slap a badge on your car to advertise that fact to everybody else? Seemed a little bit pointless to me.

Oh well. Also seen, but no pictures:
V8 Vantage (Makes at least 2 on the North Shore)
Old Rolls Royce
Bunch of Bentleys:
Flying Spur
Arnage
Continental GT

It's probably just an SLK55 AMG. I don't think there is anything such as SLK 007! :)

Anyways... Has anyone of you guys spotted a 599 GTB or a Murcie LP640 yet?
A friend of mine saw a 599 about a month ago but couldn't take any pics. So, I am just curious to know if anyone has seen one...

Agreed and it just looks so cheap :thumbsdown:


@Mischief pic of S-Class - another poser, how lame :thumbsdown: Probably an S350 or something.

With the Merc's we've owned and the Merc we drive, our family has had the cars debadged like so:


^Ok so it's not an AMG but it looks alot 'cleaner' on the boot lid without the ugly badges.

I hate posers :evil:
