    In our trip to Dubai, close friend and Filipino boxing icon, Manny Pacquiao and myself were invited by the Prince of Dubai to his desert retreat to joy ride with him. Once there, he showed us his beastly desert buggy built in America with a 1000hp twin turbo V8 engine. The Prince and Manny took the bug for a spin in the desert with us following them in a fully modified Lexus LX560. It was one hell of a ride even for me in the Lexus, but for Manny, it was an experience that scared the hell out of him because they were mostly airborne!

    145 kg/200+bhp. think about that for a moment. no frame, the suspension attached to the engine, a stressed member, via a front subframe, titanium exhaust,if its black its likely carbon (or tires)..... brought to you by the nice people who made Ducati's racing hardware for years.

    Your autos really travel the world!:eek: Never thought I'd own a Cadillac but just traded my Audi A4 for an ATS 2.0t AWD and am very pleased. Cadillac has come a long way!:cool: I know it's no V but the acceleration and overall fun factor are very high on this one.
