    Okay, okay - it is a Carrera GT. There is a twist to the story. Give me another hour or two and I will reveal all. Still tieing thing up at this stage.

    Re: Papa's got a brand new bag

    my question is how does he keep up providing shelter? He's buying them faster than any contractors can build garages Maybe he hired the FIFA construction crew

    Already on the thread, the pic I posted. ( and my suspicions were right regarding the hassles of SA with regards the LHD)


    Re: Papa's got a brand new bag

    And since it might be a little while before Mike has his on the road here is a great pic atomic 80 took recently from another forum Black CGT's are quite nice;  (maybe Mike could fly Atomic over to SA to photograph a brand new CGT for posterity)

    Re: Papa's got a brand new bag

    Start breathing, or you will die before something shows up.

     

     

    theory #1

    I speculate he bought one, then traded it in for another color, then another, then another, that's why the long wait as he still hasn't settle on a color yet.

     

    theory #2

    He got lost in his own garages, first couldn't find where he park his new car, then couldn't find the exit. He will post again when he find his way back to his computer.

     


    Re: Papa's got a brand new bag

     They wanted a lot of money for the car. Mike needs to be very careful. Like him I would never jump into this unless it was very well thought out. Probably trading in a couple of exotic's and some serious negotiation is involved.

    Bag???

    As far as I know it comes with 4 of them:


    Re: Papa's got a brand new bag

    LOL You guys are hilarious! Deal is taking longer to finalize than anticipated I'm almost there though. Just a haggling over the final amount. Not going to be trading any vehicle in apart from the ML63 - that amount to offset, the final price is almost nominal

    LOL!  Mike you might want to move to the US.  The GT is an amazing find but US Veyron money for it blows my mind!

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: Papa's got a brand new bag

    I wish you success in finalizing the deal with them Mike.

    Re: Papa's got a brand new bag

     I guess you have no choice, but the amount of money you're paying is nuts. You could probably buy a salvage and ask Porsche to rebuild the entire thing for less.

    Guys...what is wrong with you...this is the Carrera GT forum, so take another guess.   

     Smiley Smiley

    LOL, I know but form Mike you never know what is next !!! SmileySmiley

    My guess it could be a stock Carrera GT, but he is thinking in installing another exhaust system? AWE Straight pipes or something similar.

    Anyway !! Mike CONGRATS !!!!, its a piece of collection, and we are proud to have you here and share it with us !! SmileySmiley

    just a small reminder of how they sound, its EPIC the moment both of them  revv besides the Gallardo standstill

    Re: Papa's got a brand new bag

    O, you're still alive, I could train you to be a technical diver seeing you can hold you breath for so long.

    I will not be surprised at all to see Mike come out and say yeah I HAD the CGT for a couple days, but then he flipped it for a Veyron now.
