confederate motors P120 fighter combat

Starting from around $72,000 and only 63 of them being made, there is no chance that I will have one unless I steal one. It does look worth breaking the law for. Also you probably look like a jerk riding it – I say this because I’m not riding it, if I had one I would not look like a jerk – I would look like the most awesome thing since man first sliced bread. Still I guess I could just make one myself, trouble is it would end up looking more like this…

Don’t laugh as that’s still a better effort than I can manage – and it works. Come on, that still looks just as awesome as the P120 and I bet you’d get more looks and ‘street cred’ for riding that. Probably costs more to build though but then you can’t put a price on truly great style.
