Buy one £17m yacht, get one 880hp supercar free!

Quote
In a supercar world where the 1001hp Bugatti Veyron rules supreme, it's got to be hard work gaining the attention of the ultra rich - especially when your new super sled only offers 880hp.
How's about this for a novel approach, then: you can only get the car above if you fork out £17 million for the Strand Craft 122 mega yacht in the background. And there's only ever going to be six of those.
The as yet unnamed über automobile has been specifically created to act as terra firma tender to the Strand Craft 122 - but that doesn't mean it's land-locked. The lucky owners will keep the car in the yacht's onboard garage.
Complete engineering details are so far scarce, but the car will produce 880hp from a twin-turbo V12, giving it a top speed of 233mph. But that's nothing compared to the boat itself - which offers over 14,000hp

Put me down for one!!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Hopefully it will have a BOGOF offer, which will leave me with a spare, so you can have that...you'll have to arrange your own insurance though, You may make a worthwhile saving on road-tax though if it never comes ashore.
