    Aren't they stupidly expensive to basically lease one as a beta tester?

    think so. when the lady drove up she knew my other neighbor and they chatted for a bit. She said she had just picked it up. He asked about it after she drove off and I told him I hadn't seen one on the blogs even and that it HAD to be 50k+...

    Turns out only 500 were made, 50 of those in berlin. Expensive little fucker. :o
