Porn Again

(Pictured: The 1000HP Hennessy Viper. More on this one in a later post. Hennessy is the porn king of American cars and a real prick.)

This will be an on-going follow-up post to my "Nature Porn" comments a few months back. In my my previous post, I covered the world’s most obscene SUV for the money–the Hennessy Grand Cherokee SRT-8.

Like all Hennessy cars, this Cherokee offers a compelling alternative to somehting else, such as, for example, a walk through the woods. Others are a satisfactory subsitute for Viagra. Or so say the older people who can afford them, so they say, it is said, sadly.

As a former canoe camper and devotee’ of Sigurd OIson (although he did hoard electric motors and land) however, I have always worried that I may be leaving the wrong impression.

So here, for starters, is my first pick for the world’s most obscene* on-road-at-all-times rides:

1) The new Mercedes AMG SL series. In their 12-cylidner variants they pump out a cool 738 ft. lbs. of torque (and that’s all that matters.)

2) Yet even in this rarified territory everyone still knows that stock sucks. With this mind, I suggest you call the service manager at Sears and ask him for the cell number of the Renntech SL owner I met this morning. I am pretty sure he’ll trade his privacy for a chance at presitgious local press.

What, like this blog isn’t?

A pox on your Prius.

(*note: what constitutes an "automotive obscenity" is hotly contested)
