Buggati and cgt

Hey guys look at this fine find.

That's Alex (VRAlexander on 6speedonline.com). He's pretty well known through the exotic community. He's not new to high powered machines as he's owned a Supra, Callaway Vette, Diablo, 996TT and now this CGT. If you search "vralexander" on youtube, you'll see his many nice (and very fast) cars.

On that stretch of Beverly Hills, just about everyone with a sweet cars does that for some reason. It's like the area to flaunt your stuff.... I've witnesed it first hand all the exotics driving though there showing off.

Although I (like many of you) may not do the same thing, you can't deny that thing sounds AWESOME. His setup is straight pipes I believe but he's always doing some crazy sh*t to his cars.

sample: YouTube - VRAlexander and AMGGIRL -1199 Drive via Beverly Hills
YouTube - VRAlexander's CGT at 200mph

s65 renntech 700hp vs his CGT YouTube - VRAlexander's CGT vs 700hp Renntech S65

1995 SL500 red / black w/ ]RENNtech wheels. For sale
1992 sl500 red/tan 154k. 4sale also best offer.

Looking for 1999-2002 500sl or 93-1999 sl600

I love showing this picture [though wifie hates it]. At Car and Driver's 50th Birthday Party last year at Indy Hurley Haywood had the Carrera GT out doing very Hot Laps at IRP. It was a 97 degree day and he had time for one more ride. I grabbed a helmet and stuck it on wifie who got the fastest and longest hot laps of the day since he didn't have to worry about saving tires.

Helmet hair aside that shit-eating grin was worth it. Later he FedExed a diecast CarreraGT signed for her for Christmas.

You're lucky. My wife yells at me when I drive 35 mph with one hand.

There was an AMGgirl on MBWorld that lived in L.A. and now lives in Detroit (?). I keep forgetting if these two are one in the same.

I sort of trained her early. We went on a cross country trip when we first started dating and she was asleep as I was driving through New Mexico. She woke up to see the speedo setting at 130 with a line of four other benzes and porsches just scooting through the desert. She went right back to sleep. That was in 89

You just have to pick your time and places. Can't speed in traffic or in metro areas or holidays. And the track is really the place to go.
