I'm sure the Veyron would fit in there... from memory it's not that large for a supercar.


Hmm, you know with something smaller (say a Mini Cooper S... a real one) you could probably fit two or three in there... with the added bonus that it's quite difficult to hang a boat halfway over a cliff.

Indeed.

Noël really likes the PM's Roller because it's quiet and uncomplicated inside, so maybe they could shoehorn a MINI Cooper Rolls Royce Edition in there with the Veyron for Kara.

Still, they could certainly have the boys at Goodwood re-do the interior while another team re-worked the powertrain and Oxford restored the original bodywork. Yes Indeed

True, though, considering the interior styling of the yacht a Bugatti Type 57 Atlanic may be more appropriate

Quite true. I considered putting one of those in Michele's garage, once...

Guess it's time he ante's up the $1.6 million for that Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Faubourg Watch because I think the Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Tourbillon that comes with it would match the boat:

I thought I'd read somewhere that Bugatti was dropping the four-door concept though in favor of a two door...

...I think they're keeping the watch though

For something a bit bigger (55m range), the Ghost G180V looks intriguing:





I'd still install the Art Deco interior from the Strand Craft 122, however.

It reminds me of the Wallypower 118 that Richard Hammond looked at in his Zonda S Roadster review.

Haha it does a little. Still, very cool.

Is that a wave-piercing hull rather than a planing one?

Very Happy

I admit the original Sunseeker 37 design still works best for me, as well, in Once Again so that is where we can stick her, but I formally give you, Alfisti and Robert Frasier permission to send her to the bottom at some point in the future so we can replace her with the Ghost 180V and an Art Deco interior (Monty: "I always wanted to try my hand at nautical interior design.").

Does Michele's insurance cover orbital laser strikes?

No, do not let Monty near a boat design with a pen... because you won't get Art Deco. What you'll get is, well... Verner Panton's Visiona 2 designs were all built on a boat.

Marisa: If you do sink at some point, Mr. Pagani, could you make sure to do it in shallow enough water that Elio & I could salvage it to the surface?

Kara: Huh? Am I actually hearing you offering to do something productive instead of destructive?

Marisa: Well...salvage just sounds fun. It's some of the most difficult & dangerous work you can do underwater!

Allison: I could weld up an aluminum truss to mount liftbags & rigging to!

Scott: And I could fly an ROV...that'll be as cool as a remote controled airplane!

Monty: (mumbling under her breath) I could watch this distater from a safe distance and not get involved.

Marisa: Alright, I guess it's settled...when are we sinking that thing?

Agapita: I'll go fetch my mortar.

...except that I don't think Monty'd be that quiet in voicing her disapproval. Same lines, just with more sarcasm. =P

Jethro: Are mortar attacks covered in your policy?

Michele: Umm, I'd have to check...

Monty: Somehow I doubt it, you may want to go stop...

*distant CRUNCH of high explosives landing on something

Michele + Jethro:

Monty: Ah. Cyborg speed... it's not always as advantageous as you'd like to think. Sometimes I wonder if they shouldn't be fitted with some sort of manual limiter for when they're not needing it.

Michele: You realise that'd mean you too don't you?

Monty: Huh?

Fernando walks up behind her silently, and presses his hand against her back, against the floating rib. A loud pop or clack can be heard from inside and she collapses in his arms. He carries her away. momentaily stopping by the door.

Robert Frazer conjectured that there is a 292 page book of "Primary Commands" that the cyborgs resond to autonomically. Should any handler need to put the brakes on his girl shouting "Primary Command; All-Stop" should do the trick.

Elio: Personally, I get a lot of use out of "Primary Command: Sit down and be quiet."

Tech: (thumbing through the book) I don't remember programming that one.

Elio: Works best if you look really angry when you say it.

Got an important costal mission you just can't get away from? Holidays to Monte Carlo on hold? Well fear not, because now, if you can't take the fratello to Monaco, bring Monaco to the fratello!



The Streets Of Monaco Yacht. Includes scaled down Casino, swim-in jacuzzi bar, spa, room for 70 staff and a functional go-kart sized Monaco GP circuit.

And the cost of all this crass opulence? A paltry US$1 billion.

Kara need never give up her holiday to work again. Ether that or it'd make a pretty epic villan base.

Marisa: Okay ladies, today's mission is to get some really cool footage for Top Gear: Italy.

Henrietta: Since when do you care about TG:I? You've never even been in an episode.

Marisa: Since I "borrowed" Kara's Christian Labouwhateverhisnameis boots to help Claes shovel fertilizer in her garden. She said that if I could produce 12 minutes of good footage for the show she might not kick the crap out of me.

Henrietta: Okay, so what are we doing aboard this yacht?

Marisa: Excellent question! Since the first Monaco Grand Prix in 1929 two drivers have managed to launch their cars into the harbour...Alberto Ascari in 1955 and Paul Hawkins ten years later. We are going to stage our own spectacular wreck, launching a go-kart overboard and into the briny deep!

Rico: You know, this could be our best idea ever!

I dunno why, but the Gray Design Sovereign just has Evil-Genius-Yacht written all over it to me.







Comes with solar pannels and a wind turbine, to help you feel better about being able to do a diesel powered 30 knots...

...Also with a reinforced heli-pad, onboard limousine storage, infinity pool, auto-retractable cover for the forward jacuzzi, lowerdeck beach club... oh yes, and the heli-pad is in the pool.

Cue the music

Solar panels & a wind turbine? Somehow an environmentally conscious super-villan seems a bit counter intuitive to me.

Marisa: (looking the yacht over...way over thinking this) Well, it's got a nice wide, low fantail...we'll need to install some flip down dive ladders back there. That deck that the car is sitting on looks like a perfect place to weld a davit & winch for the shark cage...you know; for wimps who don't want to get up close & personal like nature intended.

Monty: A-hem..."wimps?"

Kara: (whispering) This from the girl who has to be blindfolded for all her shots at the SWA hospital.

This is what, in the biz, we refer to as "Greenwashing"... essentially looking like you give two hoots about the environment without actually doing anything tangibly useful to help.

Well we've had amphibious cars: which are great if you spend most of your time on the highway and part of it on the water... but what if your situation is reversed?

Well, now there's boat-tank:



The Iguana 29 Ground-boat is a ten-seat powerboat, capable of up to 35knots... and with a set of fold-out, all-terrain tank treads.

Marisa: Yeah, yeah...35 knots... .50 caliber machine gun...all cool but I vote for whichever one has a heater. Do you know how cold it gets on a deep heliox dive? I just wish Elio had sprung for the heated seats option on his M3.

Jean: Alright, the Agency is interested in adding a few of these Alvis FV623 amphibious vehicles to our arsenal. You three cyborgs are all qualified to drive so you'll do the testing.

Laine: Cool...what do you need us to do, sir?

Jean: First, bring it up to full speed and jump it into the river.

Kara, Allison, Laine: Are you serious?

Jean: Of course I'm serious. Why wouldn't I be?

Kara: Well...sir...it's just that you usually discourage that sort of thing.

Jean: When you do it with rental cars & Agency motor pool vehicles yes...but this is different.

Allison: And we're seriously not gonna get in trouble?

Jean: (getting annoyed) No, you aren't.

Laine: Really?

Jean: Yes.

Kara: Really?

Jean: Yes, damn it! Now just drive the damn thing into the river!

Britney: (approaching from behind) Um...Jean, sir...I think I accidentally bumped the parking brake on that big green truck. It rolled down the hill into the river.

Jean: W-what!?

Britney: It's already floated about a half kilometer downstream, sir.

What kind of topsey-turvey world have we slipped into where Marisa is complaining about not having heated seats and Kara is roughing it?
