      Not feeling the 70's cheap motorcycle helmet paint color. But otherwise, one sweet car!

      I have always loved the looks of AM, pure sex on wheels. But there's something a bit off with the Volante's proportions, like it's a bit squished between the axles. Is the wheelbase a tad too short, or am I imagining that?

      This is just how I like my wife. . .fast, good-looking, and topless. I wish I owned this car. Performance aside (buy what you need in terms of power), it's a good looking rig.
