…George Lucas got the first Mosler MT 900?


Star Wars king George Lucas was lucky enough to get his hands on a Mosler MT 900, serial number 003, the first road-going street-legal supercar to be delivered by the Mosler company. The MT 900 will do 0-60 in 3.1 seconds thanks to a mid mounted LS6 putting out 435 hp. Lucas customized his rocket with a spoiler delete and slick Vader black paint scheme. Cool car George Lucas has.

…Alfa Romeo thrives on competizione?

Alfa Competizione

If you want your supercar flavored a little differently, check out the Alfa Romeo Competizione 8C, a $200,000, 450 hp pasta rocket with a 4.7 liter V8 and 6-speed lever-shifted transmission to get you where you’re going in a hurry. You better hurry with the cash though, they’re only bringing 99 of them stateside.

…Bugatti Veyrons are not subtle cars?

Though if forced, I’d take a Ferrari Enzo, what I really want for Christmas is a Bugatti Veyron:

If anyone has an extra that they wouldn’t mind letting me have, I’d be eternally grateful, and I’d even wash yours for you whenever you wanted, even if it looks like this:

Pepto Veyron

Bathing Ape, apparently famous in the Japanese streetware scene, found it fit to cover their Bugatti in a not so camouflaged Pepto Pink, complete with Bathing Ape print camo. This wasn’t their first attempt at destroying what remains of the subtlety of a supercar though, as shown by their camo’ed Rolls Royce Phantom:

BAPE Phantom

Ten bucks says Paul Dalton wouldn’t touch either of these with a sponge on a ten-foot stick.
