Yeah, would be. Just goes to show how many poor souls are out there that live in a dillusional mirage.

The same guys have 'The Fast And The Furious' permanently living in their DVD player:)

Funny how there is no category for best performer. Probably because the cars are too low to even turn the wheels.

Well that's what auto salon is all about! Really more about the asthetics (spl?) of the car rather than the performance, although they do hold a dyno shootout...

What I'd like to know was how "307kW" & "Gemini" made it into the same sentence! Unless it has a cumulative 307,000 Watt sound system or something like that hehe

Well, its economical at least. How much paint would you need to paint a charade. 300ml? 500ml?
