No, but it'll get your kid to the school gym in 26 minutes.

leather or vinyl seats

A subtle distinction. I guess the poor-rich will have to settle for vinyl while the rich-rich go full moo cow.

Ejector seat? You're joking.

C18H27NO3: leather or vinyl seats

No "Corinthian Leather" option? At least give it a faux name....

/waits for other kids to learn they can hotwire this thing

I'd like one... it'd be perfect for the little errands I need to run.
 
2014-02-03 06:58:21 AM
Just looking at that kid in the article makes you want to beat him.

No, subby, it would be irresponsible to give children ejector seats or a rocket launcher.

It comes with a flamethrower instead.

I never joke about my work.

No, but with each purchase, you get a free bumper sticker that reads: "fark you, plebs."
 
2014-02-03 07:36:19 AM
Torn between "kinda cool idea" and "this thing screams nouveau riche jackass."

Judging by how severe your reaction is, I recommend you visit Rich Kids Of Instagram on tumblr.

That will make seeing things like this normal.

Great. Now I'll have the theme song to Silver Spoons stuck in my head all day.

/where's that thread about defeating earworms?
 
2014-02-03 08:40:06 AM
That would be perfect for downtown.

And only the children of Russian billionaires will get to experience the elegance of whale penis leather.

How long is it going to take one of you to mash the video up with the classic James Bond theme music?
I can't wait all day.

Electric powered? Who needs to be mocked?
Your nephew will outgrow it by the time he is ten.

Is it street legal? It looks bigger than a Smart car.

Sarcasm detector fail? Note the 'plebe' jokes.

Hardly anyone has those Bambino Racers, I saw it on American Restoration.

autopsybeverage: Torn between "kinda cool idea" and "this thing screams nouveau riche jackass."


I'm going with the latter.
 
2014-02-03 11:11:47 AM
I hope there is a more expensive version.

FTA: "Top speed - which can be restricted downwards  - is 46mph...."

Geez, if I'd had some of these when the monsters were younger, I could've saved on a TON of groceries over the years.

/Okay, I'd have that one-time expense for each, but still....
 
2014-02-03 11:51:36 AM
I'm going to buy one of these to display over my bar.

The choice between leather or vinyl is "real man" VS "pantywaist vegan dandy fop", not rich/poor.

Yeah, $27,000 is a good price, but maintenance is going to be a nightmare

This reminds me that we just got 50 mph go carts in town.  I'm going to have to do that on payday.

Can't blame the kid that his mother father dresses him funny.

Exactly.

If you buy your kid a $27,000 toy car you will get the kid you deserve.

Yes they are made in Vietnam!
