    Beat ya' to this one by a month orion. ;)

    Along similar lines...

    If superyachts have tenders, what do supercars have? According to Brabus, they need tenders too, and a 112hp smart (sweeet!) should do the job well.

    Castagna is making FIAT 500s into "tenders" as well, complete with lots of teak and some hot chicks in small bikinis! What can I say...? I have this thing for small, quirky cars. Too cool!

    Are you implying that AMG doesn't have his own parking spaces reserved in the appropriate places?

    I'm fortunate to say I have ridden in both Tender 1 and Tender 2. To clarify their use, allow me to explain...

    Tender 2 is used for zipping thru traffic from Vaxholm to Stockholm. Tender 1 is used to push another car into the water when it is parked in Tender 2's space.

    Don't Mess With Modin!:D

    LOL ... even the color says it all! Jet black ... that dangerous, sinister look.
    As if telling everyone ... KEEP AWAY!

    Looks a bit like a BMW gone wrong. What's with the lanyards and touch of RED.

    Yacht Capable 'Cars'

    I originally added this posting to a subject thread having to do with fuel prices and some recent auto/market discussions. But the more I thought about it, why leave it buried there quite a few 'superyachts' that just might make use of one of these for shore-side excursions.

    Alternative Powered Vehicles, 3-wheel versions

    "I'd enjoy having one of these T-Rex's onboard for shore side exploration in some foreign ports"

    ...or how about this Bombardier Cam-Am Spyder

    Pretty cool, but over here Orange County Choppers is now putting out 100 prduction bikes. DK how they'd look on a yacht, but they're pretty sweet on shore.
