Yeah, they are starting to look a bit dated but they are insane.

I think it was in the "Speed" series, Clarkson visited an Arab Sheik who had one but sent it back to AMG who built him a special engine for his. Stupid amounts of power.

Oh come on guys - that is an awesome bit of kit!!! Only 25 ltd run!

I saw a program where some british guy (might have been Plato) was driving the one that belongs to that Arab, when he floored it his smile turned into t alook of fear!

In red - no, in Silver or black......grrrrrrr

That's right. I remember that - they were both thrown into the seats from the force of the acceleration and Plato looked terrified - a rare expression for a racing driver !

Looking at that top pic I'd imagine it's not too good over speed bumps.......
