Heard a little about that, just not where, too expensive for Me no matter what, although I have a Friend who owns a Lamborghini, a Countach, sure It's an old car, but It's still a supercar and one heck of a good looking car too.

Yeah, but being in Japan, I'm wondering if that would cause a loss of their drivers license? Which is hard to get over there I've heard.

I witnessed a rather expensive crash once. An (old) Cadillac started to pull out in front of a tractor trailer. The right front wheel of the truck rode over the hood of the Cadillac - rolling the truck. The tractor trailer was an auto transporter with a full load of brand new Mercedes - all probably totaled.

Fortunately, the cabin of the Cadillac was behind the impact zone and was not crushed. Minor injuries only to the people involved.

Yeh, the Porker driver was probably the only one who has experienced the "joys" of a tail happy super car on the open road so was treating the loud pedal with due respect in the allegedly damp conditions. Unlike the Ferrrraaaarrrriiiiiiii drivers who thought they had unlimited grip and gave it some.
