Exotic Car Videos from 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show

Car & Driver have just posted their videos from the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show. Here's the first few, and you can visit their youtube channel to see when they post more.

Tell us, which one of the following exotic sports cars do you want most? I'm leaning toward the Porsche because of Germany reliability, it's relatively less flashy and with a turbo your tuning ability is through the roof in the event you want more power. But that Mercedes Gullwing is quite eye-catching also, and has a lot of heritage with it. Tough choice!

Royal Falcon Fleet 135 Catamaran by Porsche Design

When an ordinary 135 foot yacht isn't enough, it's time to look to Royal Falcon Yachts' "Porshce of the Seas" the Royal Falcon Fleet 135. At a maximum speed of 35 knots (that's 40mph for you landlubbers) courtesy of twin V-16 turbodiesel powerlants you'll not only get to your destination in style, but in record time.

The trip will cost you however, as fuel consumption while cruising at 30 knots swallows 750 liters or 198 gallons per hour. Not to worry though, with 50,000 liters of fuel capacity cruising range is 2000 nautical miles which should be enough for most trips and you probably don't want to be aboard the boring transit from Caribbean to Mediterranean anyway.

How much does the RFF 135 cost? We don't know yet but if the cost of a fill up, expected to be nearing $67,000 makes you tuck tail and run it's too rich for your blood.

Details:

  • Length: 135 feet
  • Beam: 41 feet
  • Draft: 5.6 feet
  • Engine: Twin MTU 16V 4000 M93L
  • Power output: 2 x 3,440 kW (4,600 HP)
