Why couldn't they do this on the 3 or 4 Series where it belongs.

Art collectors don't bat an eye on spending a half million dollars on a painting...that will sit on a wall. This one will bring you to the jazz festival at Piedmont Park and then out for a dinner in Little Five Points.

But if I did drive one around, I'd be pretty terrified of dinging the canvas. I suspect the local MAACO shop is not equipped to rectify paint job damage on something like this.

I'm amazed they think they can find 99 people worldwide that are willing to pay $$ for this.. unless the next Spiderman movie needs a lot of these as stunt/crash cars...

This could have been so awesome but it is too overdone for 99 units. If it was toned down just a bit..

but when you marry a pornstar.. its bound to get a bit too wild.

Well, that was pretty underwhelming. Interior color differences looks like chit and exterior looks like my kid put together as an NFT. The hood with emblem is ok, I guess....and get off my lawn!

The e92 GT2 he did was so good. Not sure what I expected out of these eight 8 series but I'm not loving them.
