Yeah I sold one of these a year and a half ago, with the M111 engine and 6 speed, nice cars. The torque was amazing, fuel economy was very good.

2008 Mercedes-Benz B 200 5 speed
2006 smart BRABUS Tailor Made Canada 1 cdi cabriolet
2013 Ford Fiesta SE 5 speed, for the kids

Red face Whip?

Where did this "Whip" expression come from? I hear it all the time all of a sudden. Any car language anthropologists out there?

The term has been in use for years through out most regions, most likely spreaded do to music.

Whip - Car, vehicle. Not to be confused with whooptie, which is not a whip. Nore to be confused with Beater or Get-A-Way car. The term "Whip" is actauly a complement to ones vehichle. You do not call a beater a "Whip".

Use of term exemple. "You wanna hop in my "Whip"?
"Lets take your Whip my beater is in the shop"

Derivitive: "Whipped" term used for personal driving skills. If one can "Whip" a vehicle he or she can drive realy well, realy fast, realy safe. Not to be confused with "Burnout" "Drifting" "Pealing off".

Learned from. I am a S.O.N.Y. college grad with a GPA of 4.0 and an honor student. If you dont know what S.O.N.Y. college is I will be happy to break down. STREETS OF NEW YORK - Brooklyn Campus.......halla and keep your WHIP clean....

I thought he wanted to know how the word whip relates to a ride?

e.g. Zoro carried his whip next to him at all times, so it was his trusted side arm and no self respecting individual would go anywhere without his whip!
