Most vs. Least Expensive Cars on eBay. 10/08

10/08 Most Expensive Car on eBay.

Vehicle: 2008 Bugatti Veyron # 150502878108

Buy it Now Price: $990,000

Owner Says: “Over $50,000 has been spent to keep this Veyron within the factory’s specifications.”

My Thoughts: Ok, so let me get this right. It has 2320 miles, and you’ve spent fifty thousand dollars to keep it within factory specifications? Ummmm……..What does that even mean?

I think I see a pattern here.

From this angle too.

Looks fast from this angle.

So it has a little rust.

Engine's there too.

Interior, not bad.

RPOTD: How to Ruin a New Camaro Edition

Random Picture Of The Day

 

Today I bring to you not 1, but 5 (yes…….Five!) pictures of the day because 1 is just not enough to wrap your brain around this one.

Why? I don’t know either. It is what it is. I’ve decided to tell myself that it is some kind of movie car or something, and not just somebody ruining their new Camaro. The positive thing to come from this is that the resale value of this wreck will be extremely low, so when it eventually does become for sale, it will be quite affordable!

2011 CTSV Coupe Already Modified By Hennessey

Hennessey V700 CTS-V Coupe

You may remember back in June when a GM rep was spotted driving a CTS-V coupe locally and I posted it up for your entertainment.  Well, these days, the world is moving faster than ever before, and if you aren’t first, you’re last.  According to my calendar it is still 2010,  yet, Hennessey has already got a 2011 CTS-V running 11′s at 120+ in the quarter mile.  If you have crazy money to spend, this sure looks like a heck of a lot of fun.  I’m sure the dealer that sold it would be thrilled to see this video. “Cya Warranty!

Slow Motion: AWD Launching Edition

AWD DSM Launches in Slow Motion

When watching drag racing, the last thing that’s on your mind is what the race would look like in slow motion.  Luckily, there are people out there that are thinking about this, and even capture it on video for people like us to enjoy.  On YouTube there are dozens of slow motion videos of rear wheel drive cars launching, which is pretty cool, but I find all wheel drive to be more interesting.

You can actually see the transfer case putting in work.  First, the front wheels start to slip, then the power is transferred to the rear, which often slips, and then back to the front it goes again. It is an amazing seesaw of power within a blink of an eye.  Focus on the spinning of the front and rear wheels vs. the distance the car travels for total amazement. Oh, and yes……… this is why stuff breaks.
