    OZ would jump at the mitsub and be shocked if it was RWD for the 380

    It would give them some cred but They do good AWD cars But a RWD v8 option would be sweet

    The Vanquish S and DB9 Coupe and Volante will join the AMV8 on the Aston stand.

    There should be an Orange Koenigsegg.

    The F430 should be there.

    Bentley will have the Conti GT and Flying Spur, Arnage T and Drop Head Coupe.

    The New 3 series and M5 will be on the BMW stand.

    Noble isn't likely to be there, but don't rule out TVR.

    Anything else required to get you interested Clutch-Monkey?

    we'll See what the Parentals have to say, but i think my Dad and I could make it a weekend trip, and my mother could go up there to see her Cousins.

    Noble was being imported by Motor Group Australia which was put into voluntary receivership when MG Rover went under. This means there is no current importer and the cars were still $40-60k away from full ADR compliance.

    I was invited to the auction, they went for $105k each (Silver, Titanium and the Lighter Blue) after being passed in on the floor, or about $30k more than I'm willing to spend atm on a car I can't register.

    Maybach to make world motor show debut in Sydney 15 August 2005

    One of the fastest road cars in the world, a one-off multi-million dollar concept from ultra-exclusive German marque Maybach, will make its world motor show debut at the Australian International Motor Show in October.

    Christened the Exelero, the coupe recently recorded a terminal velocity of 351.45km/h on the famed Nardo speed bowl in Italy.

    The Exelero is powered by a 5.9-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine producing 515 kW of power and 1020 Nm of torque - enough to push its 2.66 tonnes of kerb weight from rest to 100km/h in just 4.4 seconds.

    The Exelero rolls on huge 23-inch diameter wheels wrapped in 315/25-profile tyres from Fulda.

    The German tyre manufacturer commissioned Maybach - a division of Mercedes Car Group - to build the concept as a mobile test bed for its new generation of ultra-wide tyres.

    The Exelero also reprises its legendary streamliner of the 1940s which - once again using Fulda tyres - set a speed of almost 200km/h on one of Germany's then new autobahns.

    The new car is based on the mechanical architecture of the Maybach 57 limousine, but the Exelero is 16cm wider and even longer at almost 5.9 metres - the result of its carefully streamlined shape.

    Despite its frontal area, the Exelero's drag coefficient is a low 0.27 - comparable to many sports cars.

    The Maybach concept's extraordinary styling is the result of cooperation between the company and students from the respected Pforzheim College of automotive design in Germany.

    The designers wanted the Exelero to be road-legal, so the concept's lights, mirrors, bumper bars and other safety features all comply with current European regulations.

    Maybach says, however, that it has no plans to put the coupe into production.

    The Exelero will be unveiled to the press at Sydney's Darling Harbour Exhibition Centre on October 13 and to the public the following day.

    The Australian International Motor Show runs until October 23 and organisers expect it to feature dozens more new production models and concept cars.
