"We Entertain When It Rains"  


The difference between concept cars and fantasy cars is that concept cars are not for sale at ANY price. Fantasy cars are available, but if you have to ask how much, you can't afford them :-)

Mecedes Benz is a name known to most. They offer vehicles in a few price categories. At their top end is the McLaren SLR. This car is truely stunning in person. The photos here can not even hope to convey the quality of this car.

The $450K starting price tag should give you an idea of what kind of quality you can expect if you are considering putting one of these in you garage. Just what kind of options ARE there when a car starts at $450K???

Saleen is a company that builds limited edition "muscle cars" for discerning individuals. Some of their hand-tuned cars are affordable, and some will stretch the budget a bit more.

Spyker has a head turning black Spyder that will flatten you against your seat as it goes from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. It will also set you bank account back about $270K.

BTW, we did manage to track down a Mazda representative who informed us the name of their concept car was called the Kabura.

The Kabura has what Mazda termes a 3+1 interior. The seats fold flat to accommodate a variety of active lifestyle situations (shopping, sports, etc...)

Also, congrats to Trevor Hiller. Yes...it is a Nissan Urge.

Trevor will be getting a copy of the Saab AeroX Media Kit (DVD and collector booklet).

This kit is not available anywhere and it was one of the hottest items given to the media out of all the NYIAS press events!

There are still other unclaimed prizes just waiting for anwers to questions we have strewn about in our ramblings. Careful readers could be handsomely rewarded :-)
