Feb 18th 2009 7:05PM Its funny how most of the newer supercar companies say that they offer ferrari performance at have the pricetag (e.g. how pagani said that their zonda is faster than the enzo at half the price), but recently they've started making the most expensive cars ever.
$2million for that? It looks like an electric supercar.
Feb 16th 2009 12:52PM Ok thats it, I'll be the first one to say it... MICHELLE OBAMA IS SO UGLY!
Barack could do soooooo much better ay?
Jan 29th 2009 5:14PM It looks horrible and super tacky. It would have looked much better without the plastic stones.
Btw, this handbag came out like a few months ago.
Jan 22nd 2009 8:35AM Deidre you are such an idiot! Do you think that everything that doesn't sell is because of the economic climate? If I try to sell a blank piece of paper for a million dollars and don't get a buyer, do you think I would have if I sold it 3 years ago? No!
The Iraq war started fairly recently, so Saddam doesn't exactly have the same appeal that Hitler does. Owning Saddam's ship isn't like owning a car driven by Hitler. There are so numerous alternatives to the ship that are far more superior which a better background.
On top of that, the pictures shown above display very outdated and tacky interiors. Its kinda like how Scott Storch got a fraction of the price he paid for his yacht...its because nobody wants it, not because nobody can afford it!
Jan 16th 2009 3:57PM This thing must sound like crap. Orders over $100 come with free earphones? My earphones themselves are over $200, and to me they sound 'good'... so I wonder how I'd find their ones lol.
How is Bose out? I've got a sounddock and its better than any Chinese/Japanese piece of junk out there.
Jan 12th 2009 11:35AM Ehh its more of a 'market correction' in London, and the rest of the UK. Many towns surrounding London actually report higher property values because more and more Londoners decide to go for a longer commute.
Property everywhere here was and still is overvalued, partly because of the property surveyors (who get paid more if they can artificially inflate the numbers). Traditionally, developers have a 30% margin, but many developers were reaching 100% before the credit crunch as they took advantage of the ultra-inflated house prices.
Sep 30th 2008 3:48PM Right, this time Luxist has gone too far, and too stupid.
Are people's salaries down? No! Are retail shops reporting lower sales? No! In fact in the UK, most are actually reporting increases! But somehow Luxist makes it seem like the world is about to end, which causes depression over nothing.
To say that a land line is at all a luxury shows that you have a poor impression of the real world. I haven't heard of a single person or place that has given up their phone, heck many people (myself included) have recently got a 2nd phone line. VOIP operators even state that you should never substitute a phone line over anything, just in case if there is an emergency - after all, when was the last time you've had a land line fail on you? Never. When was the last time you've had a mobile phone fail on you...probably yesterday right?
Perhaps this is something for places like Bangladesh, Africa, etc as the cost and wait of connecting a phone line would dramatically surpass getting a mobile phone.
I remember when I was in Jakarta, although most people have a line, some people in the rural areas have waited years for a phone connection, and thus resulted in just getting a mobile phone.
Aug 31st 2008 12:30PM Is it just me, or is the Phantom looking outdated (especially in this picture!)?.
Aug 30th 2008 2:37PM $5750?? Thats quite reasonably priced. I'm suprised its on Luxist.
