I like the chunky Tonka Toy look of the G-Wagen in standard form.
That is just a bit OTT though IMO.
That will be the contrasting bonnet addenda I reckon. Always specify your Brabus Widestar without the bonnet “add on” (as Brabus call it) 👍🏻

Thanks Mr D. I'll bear that in mind when I'm looking to place my next order.;)
Can you spec it without the plastic add on bits behind the front and rear arches as well?

Yes, I forget how integrated those particular pieces are now, but as long as it’s separate - and doesn’t make the adjoining pieces look daft (eg recess or connector) - then they’ll happily leave it off.

In my experience, dealing directly with the factory makes this stuff so much easier than buying from authorised Brabus agents in the UK. I can introduce you to someone who’ll look after you 👍🏻
 
I may be wrong then😁
Then again, you may be right (she'll be right!)

Maloo

"The HSV Maloo is a performance utility that has been produced since 1990 and was based on the Holden Ute. Its distinguishing features have been high-performance V8 engines and full body kits.[5] The name "Maloo" means "thunder" in an Aboriginal language. It is said that former HSV managing director, John Crennan, coined the name for the vehicle after reading a book on Aboriginal Australians.

From Wiki - Holden Special Vehicles.
 
I saw this today, parked in the "Loading & taxis only" bay that was in front of a cracking little cafe that I visited. (Poached eggs & avocado on sourdough toast FTW )

I guess that those loading bay only rules don't apply if you drive a Flying Spur ?

Perhaps it’s a delivery driver who enjoys their comfort?

Perhaps, but I don't know of any delivery drivers who look after their vehicles as well as that looked to have been maintained.
It was immaculate, and pristine. Looked like >3 years old, not over 30y old . A true credit to whoever lavishes their attention on it imho.

In Switzerland, a 280SL with 111,000 Km on the clock for sale. No sticker price, though:

It’s not often that you see a Ferrari Enzo on the road :eek:

It looked beautiful!






I also saw this Maserati. I thought it looked cool until I saw the Ferrari

Maserati MC20, there was one at a recent meet. Lovely car, but like you say, I would imagine it was overshadowed by that particular prancing horse.

Depends what the horse is...

A couple of years ago I was driving my Mustang through the town with the roof down following a Ferrari.

My Mustang is a 1994 model so not well recognised but I heard a guy at the side of the road say to his wife "wow look a Mustang".

No mention of the Ferrari at all!

That's why I stated 'that particular' prancing horse. Other Ferrari's are 10 a penny and just run of the mill cars, nothing too special. 🤣🤣🤣
