Your Mercedes McLaren Is Too Inconspicuous

Haters the world round, get your Silky Johnson on: Arsenal defender William Gallas has upped the ante on redefining bling by purchasing not just a Mercedes McLaren, the fastest production car in the world and a piece of machinery so ostentatious Lamborghinis turn to Ferraris when it passes and whisper "Slut!" ... no, it's much more than just that.

↵Gallas does benefit others with the choice: it has to take at least 3-4 full-time employees riding along on motorcycles with huge chamois cloths to keep that thing shining like a disco ball in London traffic. But as dangerous as a car that can go 200 MPH is already, imagine what that looks like in the full glare of summer sunshine when it blinds everyone within a 400 meter radius and kills every insect that dares cross a beam of reflected sunlight shining off of it. If he drove that in Miami, it would be classified as a weapon of mass destruction and seized for study by the Department of Defense. ↵

↵With that: your move, NBA All-Stars. The all-platinum car is just waiting for someone to make it happen. ↵
