"Oh My God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I thought that it was quite a good title, but then again perhaps not.

Well what do you say about a car that costs GBP 120,000. It's got everything on it except for a sunroof, but then again when there's fully automatic climate control who cares.

The car has a full hand crafted leather and wood interior. Any colour of leather you want and any type of wood you want as long as it's from a sustainable source.

The steering wheel is hand crafted and sewn only by men. I don't know why, because the seat leather is sewn by women only.

It's double glazed apart from the front screen, and thats because of legislation.

It runs 19" wheels that are soooo sexy, and the chrome ones are even sexier.

Some technology that you won't find on a run of the mill car is the air suspension. This raises or lowers all according to how hard or soft the car is being driven.

It's got so many stability programmes I think anyone would find it hard to lose control of this 2 ton animal.

Full sat nav as standard, with a Nokia phone in one of the front armrests.

Heated and massaging seats with full electrics.

A decent sized boot to get the golf clubs in.

Yes I have driven one of these, I do it for a living. How lucky am I????? I've even had the pleasure of driving it at Millbrook.

They are as good as they say. It's powerful, yet you always feel in control. Never a twitch or slide even when getting close to the limit.

If you have got GBP120,000 to spend on a car. This is the car to go for. Don't even bother with the german marques. Nothing comes close.

And before you ask, I can't afford one!!!! lol

*update*

Cons: Very little room in the rear passenger seats. More a 2 seater really.
