Chuck, Thanks for the slideshow and we can sense your enthusiasm for dream car designs and new technologies. Even given the most frugal approach to efficiency and practicality, there will always be a place for dream cars in the automotive landscape.  Thanks.

Not what customers want

The article said that these expensive cars appearing at car shows indicates customers want them, and that is not true.

Car show presentations are what makers want to sell, not what consumers want to buy.  Consumers want 80 mpg car that are simple, light, and easy to maintain.  It is just that car makers don't want to sell them that, because there is not as much profit margin on them.

Exhaust is a repeat of 1970 GTO option

In 1970 Pontiac GTO had a very short lived option similiar to the Stingray exhaust option shown on slide 17. Back in the day you could get a vacuum operated exhaust for the GTO. You pull the lever and valves in the muffler would open up and reduce the back pressure and up the coolness sound of the V8. I even think that you can purchase this system as a reproduction today!

So what sounds like a new design idea for a stock car (I know racers have done this for years), it is nothing new. $55K for the Stingray, or $1.5million for the other, or 3.9 million for one of the three. Not sure which one to get?

Don't you see cash flying out of the same window?!

It looks noce, but they should test it on NYC streets and see what potholes do the suspension.

When I see that rear view of the Lamborghini, naperlou, I can't help thinking of the Batmobile.

Cap'n, that Laambo is really wild.  Actually all of thier cars are, but this one is really out there.  That rear view is what prompted the subject of this post.  Cool stuff.

I like all the cars you show, but the Stingray is really nice and I want one.
