Two cars (no. 2)

If I don't get an all-electric car like the Nissan Leaf, I have found a good substitute.  I was stopped at a light the other day, right behind a very-sharp looking car.  On the back were the words "Qvale" and "Mangusta."  I had not heard of this, so I did a little research on this beauty:

The Mangusta was manufactured in Italy from 2000-2002, but sold primarily in the U.S.  Only about 275 were made, so they are quite a collector's item, but it turns out that used ones are fairly reasonably priced.  And best of all, they were made with a Ford Cobra engine, so they are easy to service.

I'm guessing the gas mileage on this V-8 is not too great, but it would really look good to drive.  Hmmm . . ..
