Auto Erotica

When I dream, I dream big. I am a lover of all things luxury and cars are no exception. These are a few of my favourite vehicles to dream of one day owning, or at least driving around the block.

Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is the world’s fastest street legal production car. With a top speed of 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph) this is the stuff of wet dreams. Rarely do such power and such beauty exist in the same package. At a sticker price of 2.4 million dollars, I’ll be dreaming about this for the rest of my life. It’s pretty on the inside too.

I would be doing this car an injustice if I didn’t include a video of it in action, driven by someone who appreciates it’s power.

Next on my wish list is the 2009 Mercedes Maybach Zeppelin. Priced at a mere $677,000 US dollars, this car might be within reach if I ever win the lottery. The image at the start of this post is of the interior of this car and the luxury doesn’t stop there.

It just whispers seductively, ‘Sit back, relax and let me pamper you.’ In fact if you’re lucky enough to be cradled anywhere within this testament to luxury, that’s exactly what you can expect.

This next work of art is surprisingly priced at a reasonable $444,000 US dollars. Which means I will be able to afford one if I also plan on living in it. Judging by the beautifully appointed interior, that’s a distinct possibility. The 2012 Rolls Royce Phantom.

And the exterior isn’t too shabby either.

This car is pure elegance in every sense of the word.

The last vehicle on my list was just brought to my attention this evening. It may not be the epitome of luxury (yet), but it looks like a ridiculously fun toy to own, or at least fly around the block in. Yes, I just said FLY.

This is the Moller Skycar M400.

It seats 4 which makes it perfect for that family outing, or for storing your golf clubs. The SL model has a maximum speed of 579 km/h or 360 mph and boasts vertical take off and landing in just a 35 foot diameter (or 10.7 meters). It retails for $500,000 US dollars, which, if you travel a lot, could pay for itself in convenience alone on your first time not having to go through the airport security line. It has a maximum range of 750 miles (or 1207 kilometers) between fuel ups (great for island hopping in the Caribbean) and flies on ethanol.

Now you know a little more about what fuels my fantasies.
