    Yes, prior owner painted it Jaguar's BRG. He had a car racing team and access to some cool tools. The wheel center caps are Sprite hood ornaments - he somehow machined out the centers so he could press them in there.

    Its not the most practical car, but is is a blast to drive. Plus its always happy (big smiley face on the front). I have a top for it, but I've never put it on. Luckily it doesn't rain much in summer where I live.

    I don’t know where else to put this but I think it’s definitely car porn.

    Did this run this morning. Such an amazing drive: more turns than you can count, 2 national forests, mountains and lots of elevation changes, smooth tarmac and all to myself on a beautiful late summer/early fall day.

    That must've been fun.

    Never saw the Merc AMG GT R in person. Beautiful shape, matte paint was a nice touch. Vermont plates too.

    It really was one of the most fun drives I’ve ever had.

    I even saw a black bear amble out of the fog as I was coming down one mountain.

    You've never picked a 55 mph road with curves and set the cruise at 75?

    I think that one is called Eight Seconds.

    Strap in once you set it to 75 and see how long you can hang on.

    Its also fun on off ramps. You see how far you can go before hitting brake.

    If you’re not jamming on the brakes 10 feet before the top of the ramp, you’re not living.

    Anyone else watch Fastest Car on Netflix? Sure the back stories are about as fabricated as some of the sleepers ("This race is for my daughter who has scoliosis!") but I love seeing garage built cars go up against super cars and guessing who is going to win. Watched one the other day with my daughter and she lit up when the girl won against all the guys.

    One of the best cars ever produced.

    If you have the means... I highly recommend picking one up.

    That GT2RS will run circles around the GT3RS....

    ...But, in truth, I'd rather drive the Exclusive everyday on the street. So, if I had my choice, I'd own a GT2 RS and an Exclusive.
