DiMora Natalia SLS 2: the $2m "green" car

click to enlarge

Ever justified buying something you know you shouldn't have purchased? Getting the fries instead of the salad for an extra dollar because you're hungry and, hey, it's just a buck? Or maybe you bought a way-too-big house because the ARM was so affordable (emphasis on the "was")? Well, you'll have your work cut out for you if you want to spring for the DiMora Natalia SLS 2. The price? A cool two million dollars.

Obviously only intended for the insane - wait, I meant insanely wealthy - the Natalia SLS 2 should be out next year and the justifications have begun. Described by My Desert as "the first eco-friendly, hand-built, $2 million production automobile" (let's hope there isnt' a second), celebrities like Willie Nelson and Larry Hagman are ready to tell us just how good this car can be for the environment. Willie's usually a pusher for biodiesel, not ethanol, but he was excited about the flex-fuel capability of the Natalia SLS 2. He didn't say anything about the car itself. We can guess that's because it's got a V-16 that displaces 14 liters for 1,200 horsepower, which certainl doesn't sound green. Still, DiMora Motorcar says its flagship vehicle will get "excellent gas mileage." Oh, and it's got some nifty windshield wipers.

Look, if you're thinking of blowing $2m on a car, go get help. Better yet, buy a spaceship and head for the stars. We don't need your kind here. If you want to impress your neighbors, buy a Tesla or a Fisker or convince Honda to sell you an FCX Clarity or something. Green cars are smart, but two million bucks for a sedan is just dumb.
