SLK with SLR Engine

Post by Mark

SLK SLR

K sent me a link last week about Mohammed Ben Sulayem’s Mercedes SLK that was fitted with an SLR engine. It seemed a bit like too much BS and it was causing the same BS feelings in various forums. Today K sent me a link with details on this extreme makeover and it turns out this is a real car and it really is an SLK with an SLR engine. Check it out. [Link]

Maybach Vs Rolls-Royce Phantom

Post by Mark

Jeremy Clarkson is the coolest, this week he put the Maybach head to head with the Rolls Royce Phantom. [Link]

Note: He also mentions Kuwait :)

The sheer volume of gadgetry in its rear quarters means you quickly forget you’re on Mercedes suspension, behind a Mercedes engine. It is a wonderful way to travel if you are a northern businessman or a Kuwaiti or you have the mental age of a six-year-old. Which is not a criticism, by the way.

The front looks kind of crap, but the rear makes up for it. [Link]

I Hate Mechanics and Doctors

Post by Mark

Just took my car to the mechanique because it was making some sounds and vibrations. I don’t like mechanics, they are like doctors. You go to a doctor for a checkup, he tells you that X and Y are wrong with you and that you need to take this and that medicine. You say ok and you leave the office and go get the medicine. You have no clue if the doctor is right or what the hell he was talking about. Same with mechanics. You go there, he tells you that X and Y are fucked up and it will cost you need this and that to fix it. You nod your head pretending you understood what the hell he just spoke about and you agree he fixes them for you.

The Fast and the Furious 3

Post by Mark

Just yesterday I was watching the Rides episode where they built a car for drifting and I was telling Nat how cool drifting is when today I read that the new Fast and the Furious will be based on drifting. Neither Vin Diesel (who co-starred in the first film, but not the second) nor Paul Walker (who co-starred in both) will appear in the new movie which is scheduled to begin filming this fall. [Link]

On a side note, the show Top Gear is currently showing on the Discovery Channel in the States. Hope they come to Showtime also. At the moment you can watch Top Gear every Sunday at 1PM on BBC.
