A new, fast, manual shooting brake...

...is a car I wish existed. Probably won't ever again in the US, will it?

Apparently Mini will offer the Clubman with a manual in the 2021 model year.

I think that's the closest you can get. The auto version John Cooper Works has 301hp and does 0-60 in 4.6 seconds. Not too shabby.

Not manual or new, but noteworthy: https://gearpatrol.com/2020/05/07/te...hooting-brake/

Just wanted to follow up and say the 1st generation M Coupe was one of the very best cars I've driven, and I've only driven the S52 version.

More cars like that please.

Never been a huge fan of the FF, but it looks gorgeous in that pic.

Was just curious about used values for those. DAmn- they have fallen off a cliff and go for around 100k (I think they were around 300k new?). I wonder where they will bottom out- maybe there's a sweet spot where you could own 1 for a year or 2 and not lose money.

Not lose money in keeping it as a paperweight or not lose money while actually putting miles on and maintaining that Ferrari V12?

Ha I should’ve said “not lose too much”.
