My Boss' CarreraGT

My boss (retired now) pulled up yesterday in his brand new CarreraGT.

I appologize for the crappy cell phone pic it was all we had.* I'm the guy off the rear passenger side with my hand on my hat.


This thing was amazing.* A guy I knew took it out minutes before and was doing 130 in a 55 but slowed down when he saw a cop.* He got a ticket for 75 in a 55, the cop walked up and said "Thanks for not running"

The whole chassis itself is 450lbs made of carbon fiber.* It was beautiful.*
No I didn't get to drive it, only one other guy did. :x

$450,000

8) 8)

Here's various shots of an '04 but it's pretty much the same, check out the engine compartment, humina humina humina.* Practically everything on that car is Carbon fiber.

The only bad thing is if you wreck one of those...car has to be sent off for repairs.

I really doubt someone could walk away from a wreck in that BEAST.
