    Isn't that the new fastest saloon or something?


    Brabus are sorta Mercedes tuning department. I say sorta because I don't think they're owned by Merc, but only work on them.

    Silly Europeans calling sedans saloons. :lol:
    A "saloon" is where you went to get drunk if you were a cowboy in the "Old West"
    And while we're on it, a "bonnet" is what little old women wear, and a "boot" is a place for feet. Not groceries :lmao::lmao: (sorry, I guess I'm just a bit tired of Jeremy Clarkson knocking us Americans :greenpbl: )

    Anyways, yeah. I've always loved the Brabus Mercs, and ferny, they are not owned by Merc. It's like Alpina is to BMW, a tuning house where they turn great cars into extraordinary cars.

    edit: I just looked up the Brabus McLaren Mercedes SLR, and Holy **** That is one amazing machine...

    Hoods are worn by dirty little Chav's who look for old Grannies to mug. They get you banned from shopping centres (not "malls").
    Trunks are for storing clothes in or as snorkels for elephants.

    And don't get me started on chips, pants and cookies. :p
