@Salar: damn a citroen DS, never even knew that they were brought to NA. and that Lancer looks like a regular Lancer that was made to look like an EVO.
In fact, it looks like an EVO that was made to look like a regular Lancer. All those Evo details, Brakes, bumpers, hood, wheels, seats, wheel, flared arches...

it actually looks like he has a body kit on it, and the hood and the trunk lid look aftermarket to me. But then there are the seats which look just like the ones on the EVO. so, you may be right. sounds like a dumb idea though :?

I just came across his thread...
About 3/4 weeks ago, I was coming out of a car rental place and getting onto a local highway, near the Newark Airport when I noticed a M.A.N. truck coming, with a GB plate. I thought: "What the..."
As it went by, I noticed the big DBR9 graphics on the side; yes, it was not one but the two Aston Martin Racing trucks making their way to the Newark Port (going back to the UK, I guess). They were coming from California.
No photos, though... :(

Just the other week I saw a Citroen DS, that picture of the M5 on the street I posted was at the same time. I opted to take a picture of the M5, since it was easier, but I caught a glimpse of the DS, I had never seen one before.

For an extra ?2400 over the regular M3 coup? you get the CSL?s gorgeous 19-inch wheels, drilled brake discs, chubby Alcantara steering wheel and an M-track mode that dials back the stability control?s threshold. But most crucially, the CS also gets the CSL?s tighter steering rack: 14.5:1 versus 15.4:1. And finally ? in a move that makes paddle-shift Luddites like me rejoice ? it?s available as a manual.
But the wheels aren't as light as the CSL ones.

I've seen more than 4 DS here, 2 of them were in pretty good shapes. (Collector plate)

@SL65, I was at Mercedes dealer for SLR only which they didn't have any, I didn't bother go inside.

BTW, kinda pointless to say but saw a dark grey 430 Spyder/red interior, top down and a '70 black Charger with red stripes on rear and some other cool cars today. Didn't have my camera.

If he did, it would a "blinged out" Escalade. I am almost certain. :)
