Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Eric Cioe, Mar 31, 2004.

  1. kserg, is that your E28? Most impressive, but please, unless it says "BMW M Power" on the engine, take the ///M badges off, ... even though you'll be able to blow a stock E28 M5 out of the water... it's a matter or principal :) No bad blood intended, I'm just a BMW purist...

    On another note, the 456 is my favourite Ferrari of recent years, but I'm quite happy with my Saab 9000 Aero - faster than a '92 512TR from 50-75mph :D

    It really speaks volumes about the US car industries designs that the best looking "new" American Car is one that was designed in the 60's

    And largely designed and built by Brits; in England, no less, at least in terms of the bodywork.

    No its not... thats m5 in europe... sorry to be not clear but it says "soon to come" i almost made a deal to simular car last week but my old car got towed away and on friday i will pay around 700$ to get that junk back... so no e28 for me:(
    very pissed about it too... car was waiting charoty to pick it up and ahol...HDdxusihjdsgaoisd; cop towed it away for being parked next to my house for more then 72 hours... ended up 700$ bill... ruined my plans for e28 (white... 3500$ with 110k mi on it best condition i've seen one around) and new amp..

    plan was getting 535i stock and then over a period of 1 year upgrading it to be monster...

    Ya... i am not a ricer and there will be no m5 badges on my 535i but that is real m5:]

    The coolest Ferrari: The F-40.
    I saw one at the Detroit Auto show when it came out in '90-91. I laughed at the crowd reaction to the lack of a radio, interior door panels, or any kind of "finishing". Just two seats, a tac, a stick, a wheel, and some dials. It was beautiful all for $500,000.

    I much prefer its precursor, the 288GTO. Absolutely stunning car- looked like a 308 series, but somehow managed to look much more muscular.

    its all about Porsche mang!
  7. Looked like european plates - I figured you were bringing over something foreign and exotic :)

    $700!? That's insane!

    I really like E28s, though aesthetically I have to say I'm partial to E24 :) Particularly the ones that have the engine that says "BMW M Power" on them :)

    An M6 and an 850CSi are my two dream cars.

    Good luck on the continuing E28 hunt - make sure those valves have been adjusted regularly... the M30 "Big Six" is bulletproof provided it has had simple maintenance done to the valvegear on a regular basis.

    No but I am going to get the bumper from Europe… I don’t care much about looks but omg.. US bumpers look like something from 60's no good… they are huge… its kinda cool because you can go road kill hunting with a car but eh

    And yes its complete bull, especially because every time I need cops they don’t do anything and tell you that they wont do anything yet he had time for this

    New m6 or older?
    I dono what to make of new m6 its interesting:p

    Ya, when I buy cars I take them to shop I used to work in and still very good terms with owner… fix their stuff all the time:p so I check it good… no time limit:p thanks for advice though:]

    All the cars in this thread are owned by this car. A better looking car than the volvo station wagon has yet to be made.

    Well, the Camaro concept has possibilites. Hopefully, if they do build it they will give it some sort of killer powertrain (all aluminum smallblock, maybe?), and leave the leather interiors and cupholders out. It should be a hotrod, not an Escalade.

    Malthumb.......hint, hint. ;)

    Heres another shot that looks like it has the retro RS package.

    Larry, PM me sometime and let me know how your Camaro is coming

    Looks like a 1983 Volvo 245. The ultimate skate or band transport vehilcle.

    Maybe in a couple of years, if the fact that I'm not saving enough for retirement still hasn't sunken in at that point.

    Man, if they look like that orange one I posted I'll sacrifice, well, something really important to get one! I'd like to see it rolling with the LS6 motor, a true dual exhaust, 6 speed manual, humongous disc brakes and independent rear, and no cupholders. Me, I'll take the heated leather seats, thank you!

    I guess that's too much to hope for. If Chevrolet's mile-long record of bad decisions with the F-body (4 cylinder Camaros? come on!) is any indication, we'll be lucky to even see it.

    I will PM you later............ :cool:
  20. Man if that isn't the fugliest car I have ever seen I dunno what is. hahaha
