Lots of photos here from a recent local car show. We seem to have plenty of American iron here in OZ but there's also lots of Aussie, Pommy & European vehicles in this lineup as well. There were numerous examples that I would gladly take home:-

I don't have anything against it, I just suspect it's not something you'll find a big market for.

BTW, I already own a Carver here in the states. Heck, the company I work for was a dealer for years before Carver's parent filed chapter 11 and left us (and a lot of other dealers) holding the bag for some major payments that never came through.

Here's a picture of my Carver:



What? You weren't talking about Carver Yachts?

Cars that blow your hair back...

2007 M Coupe
Drive it a lot less since I got the Street Triple, but it is still a beast.
M3 6cyl engine tuned to the t*ts, M3 brakes, only offered in 6 spd manual, ltd slip rear, few electronic gismos and a comparatively spartan interior. I've kept it stock, there were few sold in the US.

I have a neighbor that has one of these. He gets it out on Sunday and drives it around. I am jealous. You reminded me of it because his daily driver is an M Coupe

They are also working on an all electric version. If you go to the registration page on their website, they ask if you would be willing to put down a $1000US deposit in 2013 for delivery in 2014. They are either very sure of their future, or hurting for money. Take your pick...

Lovel: Jag coupe - one of the sexiest cars. Ever. Want.

Gristlebitch: M-coupe - maybe not the sexist looking thing but one of the best cars of the day to actually drive!

Convertibles are for posers - I'll take the coupe over the convertible nearly every time.
