Click the image above for more high resolution photos of the YES! Roadster

The first time I ever walked into a casino, there was a BMW Z3 sitting on a turntable atop a bank of slot machines. All I needed were three red sevens and I could drive it right out of the Rio in Las Vegas. I played those slots exclusively because the prospect of a free BMW was too great to pass up, and as you probably guessed, I didn't win. Cars are a great draw on the casino floor, and the Seminole Casino in Coconut Creek, FL has quite the unique roadster to draw in gamblers.

The car in question is a YES! Roadster Turbo S, which is apparently the only model of its kind on US shores. The 415 horsepower, turbocharged ragtop, which is valued at over $100,000, is guaranteed to be drawn on January 29. The Turbo S weighs in at just over 2,000 pounds, with an aluminum space frame and a rear mounted 3.2L V6 driving the rear wheels. The German automaker claims 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and a 200 mph top speed. Does that make it worth the gamble for the chance to win? That's up to you, but we'd probably give it a spin given the chance.

      'The first time I ever walked into a casino, there was a BMW Z3 sitting on a turntable atop a bank of slot machines.'

      For me it was the MGM Grand and a Dodge Viper. Red with the widest rear wheels I had ever seen to that point.

      I know that it wouldn't have the upgradable possibility of the 355 or 415hp turbo'd versions, but I'd rather see the 2.0t putting out 265-280hp in the base version since it's lighter and more powerful.

      But yes, I'd probably put my entire gambling budget of $20 into the slots below this car...

      Does anyone else think 2000 lbs seems heavy for that car?
        • 5 Years Ago
        NO.

        It has a relatively heavy VW V6 and the Yes! still weighs less than the lightweight Lotus Elise.

        ok, guess I was wrong.

      That's funny. I went to Las Vegas a month ago and let's just say there were a lot less cars on the casino floor than there were the previous year.

        I was there Thanksgiving weekend and you're right about that. I only saw one car on a platform.

      How would you insure something like that (Other than self-insuring, that is)? I'd love to have it, but driving it without insurance is a scary premise...

      As long as you spend less than $100000 on the bets to win this car, you'd still be better off, right? :P

      I wonder if this is the same one that was at the dealership down the street from me. I swear it was sitting there, right next to the Gumpert Apollo last time I went by. I should go check.
