    Quite possibly even more crazy than the CL65 AMG, the "brand-new" Bristol Blenheim Speedster.

    5.9litre Chrysler V8, Chrysler 4-Speed Automatic gearbox, weighs 1395Kgs.
    Bristol never quote power output, but its estimated to be 350bhp and 390lb/ft. Performance is estimated at 0-60 in 5 seconds, with top speed at 150mph.
    Price, well around £150'000. Only 12-15 are estimated to be made.

    In outright performance, of course the R500 is better. And yes you could buy 4 R500s for the price of it:bigthumb:

    But sometimes a car is more than just its performance. The Bristol Blenheim Speedster is, in my opinion, one of those cars.
    Its also worth more than the sum of its individual parts (some of which such as the boot handle are entirely handmade). Knowing that only around 12 other people will ever own a car like it, is simply priceless:)
