    Im not into Hermez, or brown cars, but this car will be admired, valued and collected in 100 years. Its a well known car in the supercar community and it is the only one in the world. It is the epitome of master craftsmanship. How he convinced Hermez and Pagani to team up and design him a car, ill never know.

    Watch this video. Its actually really interesting.

    I've never seen Brown look better. ;)
    Leave it to a guy to own a supercar like that for four years and not even know it comes with luggage compartments and luggage. o_O

    /—-/ Don’t mess with perfection. Leave the fog lamps off.

    Yeah, but the fog lights are stock. I'm just replacing them because they're starting to lose their luster and probably better to just swap em out while the bumper is off. I already have em, I just haven't wanted to take the bumper off twice, I'd rather do it all in one shot over the einter months.

    I get the appeal of wanting your car to look different from everyone elses.

    For all you guys that say Volkswagons suck, you do realize that they are one of the easiest cars to customize and upgrade, right? I wouldn't mind owning any of these.........

    I both disagree and agree with the OP.

    For a daily driver, I want a newer car. They are superior in almost every way. The only thing an old car can boast, as far as superiority, is that you could work on them yourself.

    For all the other reasons you own a car, the old cars are great.

    I completely agree. Old cars suck. They are, in many ways more stylish looking. However, when it comes to braking, handling, safety, and many other metrics, they are complete garbage.

    Yeah...but it's still a Volkswagen. It rattles, shakes, and sounds like you are being propelled by a continuous fart. Plus, they are uglier than homemade soap.
