    Question Should exoctic Limo's be banned????

    Carrying on from this thread about the stretched 360 Modena (Link) do you think that stretehed exotics should be stopped??

    To help you decide I found this article on Autoblog about what the creator of the 360 is doing next:

    First due to face the guillotine is a Lamborghini Murcielago commissioned by the same buyer who bought the stretched Ferrari 360. This time around, the Lambo is set to incorporate an additional rear axle for visual effect. Evidently not content to keep a low profile, Carbonyte is also working on plans for stretched versions of the two fastest seven-figure hyper-exotic supercars known to man: the Koenigsegg CCX and the Bugatti Veyron.

    I agree with Baldred. Crap I didn't mean to vote Yes. Can a mod change to no?

    Don't care to be honest, with the super rare limited edition cars I don't think they should becouse they are taking one away for people to see but things like most ferraris are fine by me.

    I don't mind as long as they don't use a mclaren F1. Then I will have to burn the makers.

    If they create the Veyron-stretch, I will personally have a small trip to the UK (That's where he's from right?)

    I belive the person ordering it is not sure about the man building it

    The guy who has the 360 built it himself, I believe, not sure about it though..

    well all the stag do's I've been on have either been abroad or somewhere where we didn't need a car to get to

    as to school proms ... ahh the Americanisation of British society ... never had proms when I was a lad ... also I went to an all boys senior school (not entirely correct as there were normally a couple of girls each year in the sixth forms (when you do A-levels) that originally were at the girls equivalent of the boys school).

    ... back on topic ... theoretically you can 'stretch' most cars ... just look at what the top gear trio got up to ... it's just a case of how 'professional' you want it to look like ... if it's a slab sided vehicle mounted on a ladder chassis it's normally alot easier than a curvy unibody ... a stretched Veyron will be silly as like the stretched 360 it won't have much headroom ... the only reason for doing something like that is to make a 4 seater or something ... any that's just silly as it's been rumoured that Bugatti are considering that anyway

    Yeah for me it depends. Some are good Some are bad. They are at least better than the Top Gear Limo's

    Carry on, I mean if people go out and buy a Ferrari in the first place they have no taste so why not making it even uglier .


    Thats the way to go make an ugly car even uglier !!!!!!!!!!!


    Before you guys bring up 'the Vette Limo, I know I like it but now way in hell would I wreck a beautiful piece of engineering (I'm talking about the Vette not the Ferrari or Bugatti!) by turning it into a Limo (Lincoln towncars do that job perfectly and the stretched 9-5's!)
