How's it chrome? The body is made of carbon fibre :)

My real guess is a coupe :)

which car Josh?

The only car that would tempt Steve at the moment has to be a particular GTC :-)

Still not saying, but it's not the Uber bling Coupe. It has a few too many Halfords trinkets for me. I know Greeny will love it though !

the Merc belongs to an Abu Dhabi billionaire and is made of white gold for a cool $2.5 million :shock:

to power the additional weight it has a V10 Quad Turbo capable of producing 1,600 horsepower with an accelaration from 0 to 60 in under 2 seconds.
