I didn't think delivery started for another few months? Side note: worst. car name. ever.


Saw a KTM X-Bow today driving down the main street in Weisbaden. :shock:
I've seen them at the 'Ring but never in town. We're an hour away from the nearest track, 90 minutes from the 'Ring.

My dad insists his '97 Thunderbird is an undiscovered gem. If someone wants to make an offer... :)

they did use the Cosworth developed turbo-4 from the Mustang SVO. That said, I think the 5.0 T-Bird coupes were sleepers.

Yesterday I saw a 911 Turbo S 918 Edition. It was a nice metallic brown with neon green calipers, "S" emblem and "911 Turbo S 918 Edition" across the bottom edge of the door. If I had realized what it was sooner I would have snapped a pic. Now I hope to catch a glimpse of a 918 around town when the weather warms up...

I didn't get photos, but the other day I saw a beautifully maintained/restored Hudson Jet-Liner.

It was even this color (though without CA plates):

What can't you get in Europe if you are willing to pay?
That is if there isn't an international export version taht I don't know about.

There's at least one Tesla in Wiesbaden. It was just odd after not seeing any really interesting cars in Copenhagen to see two different Teslas.

Just saw a Dakar Yellow M3 drive up our street. It had the ///M stripes on the front, black wheels, CF lip spoiler and sounded like it had a DCT. Very nice looking and very rare BMW Individual paint color. I wasn't able to snap a pic but it looks just like this one:

Today I had to deliver a server to a school near Stuttgart. I spotted 3 interesting cars. Sorry, no pictures as I was driving and my passenger's phone was dead. I should have given him my phone. :x

A BMW 4GC in full camo (not sure why, it's already been shown to the public)
A Mercedes Benz SUV of some sort in full camo
A SLR Stirling Moss edition on a trailer. It was black, but this silver pic is the best one I could find with a quick google. (Why oh why didn't I pull over and get out my camera?!?) :oops:

Stuttgart, Munich and Nürburg are magical places for car spotters. I should have known better and had a camera at the ready.
The MB SUV almost ran into us at a 4 way intersection (we were both turning left, him not so much at first) so I got a REALLY good look at it.
There was also a Land Rover towing an enclosed trailer with "Caterham Racing" across both sides. I wish I could have seen what was inside.

There's a new orange McLaren 12c in the neighborhood, and now that it's warming up the Ferraris are coming out of their garages. Summer in Wiesbaden...

Shelby Daytona replicar.
He must have been driving Mrs. Daisey, because he was holding up traffic in the left lane until he took his exit.

Summer is in full swing and last weekend was the annual Wiesbaden Old Timer's Ralley so there have been a lot of exotics about. I'll only include the 2 cars I saw on the street and one sweet Japanese car from the Ralley.

Heard something deep and nasty in the garage and went in search of it. This is the source of the twin-turbo 5.5L V8 sound.

Not what I would spend $140K on, but the Indian who drove this has different wants and desires than I do. But hey, he gots dem dual side exhausts!

911s are a dime-a-dozen here but this one is a little special.

I saw a 50th Anniversary Edition 911 last week (white, white/black hounds tooth interior) but didn't take any pictures (sadly). Pure. Sex.
