So basically another British sports car that nobody's ever heard of, that you can't actually go and buy. This time it appears to have a lorry engine but is just shy of the magic 200mph mark that all imaginary sports car makers go for these days. When I make my sports car, it will have a nuclear reactor, lasers for headlamps, will do 350mph, and will need a fuel rod every two years.

Mine will be cool, this isn't.

I just went on their website and saw 6.6Ltr Diesel V8. ****ing POOS (Pile Of Old Sheite).
A supercar (term used loosely with that oil burning clatterbag of smoke) and new. Two ingredients together that will never ever be cool.
If it had a proper petrol engine it might have made 'uncool' but with its train engine it is a definite *wankmobile. Room 101.

***** as in crap, not one you'd orgasm over.

I could put up with one of these on the driveway. That the tractor engine annoys people makes it even more cool IMO. Me likey.

So, basically a Massey bloody Ferguson, at a price of 96K. As far as I can see, you can buy 2 Alfa 4C in the UK for that.

On the other hand a life time warranty (100 years) and a chassis made of stainless steel, really shows big balls. But as it seems, this warranty is only for the chassis:

Am a sucker for big round asses, but those hideous tail lights totally ruins it.
Still think it looks cool from most angles, though.

On the one hand, I'm quite happy that these kind of semi pointless one offs get made. If indeed any do get made. On the other, it's often no more than an ill-conceived, badly finished, overpriced POS that drives like a wheelbarrow with a loose wheel.

The fact that it is diesel and I'm not sufficiently intrigued to even look at the website puts it well into uncool territory.

The train :(

I really like the styling and V8s are going to be fun, John Deere or not

How big is the engine though and is it any good? 0 - 60 in??

Tractor engine.
Named after vanquished ancient British tribe.
It's from Norfolk.

A trifecta of uncoolness.

I think that looks quite good

Agree though that the diseasel-sports crossover thing is a bit stupid and removes any chance this ever had of being anywhere near cool
