Please Come to L.A.

Like the song says…

“Please Come to L.A. to live forever
California life alone is just too hard to build
I live in a house that looks out over the ocean
And there’s some stars that fell from the sky
Livin’ up on the hill
Please come to LA”

— Dave Loggins, Please Come to Boston

Is there a more lustable car than this? It has everything: a gated shifter, a high-strung V12, lights that are more crouching, lying in wait than hidden. Long hood. Bumpers that laugh, because: 150 mph. Enough room for you, a sultry companion and a weekend’s worth of clothes you mostly won’t be wearing anyway.
