Don't be mad...

I know this has nothing to do with Merc (other than we're kickin their collective a$$e$ up and down F1), but if you haven't seen this, it's one fine lookin automobile. Much better than the new Mclaren production vehicle IMO. Enjoy!

Thew new 458 looks fantastic but why oh why did they have to use 3 exhaust tips? It looks like the intern at the design department took it to halfords while nobody was looking and cleared out the 'cool' corner (aka cheap and ugly styling stuff).

It's okay, we're not mad but just a reminder that the Brawn team use Mercedes engines too and that Ferrari are no where to be seen! (Even although I'm not a Mclaren Mercedes supporter in F1, thought I had to mention that)

I prefer the California imo.
