World's fastest Taxi

I think I have posted this before. This car has been on the lot at this dealer for a while. Why would anyone paint such a beautiful car such an ugly color? Don't get me wrong, if someone gave it to me, I would be more than happy to drive it...

Did you see Extreme's car featured in the new BENZO magazine? Nice article and lots of great pics. I didn't realize he was running a 400E in drag! :p

No I hadn't seen the article in benzo, but I did know that. It probably costs more to convert a 400E into a 500E, than just getting a 500E, but it would be a fun project.

It was a cosmetic conversion (bodywork only). The internals are still all 400E, AFAIK.

eXtreme E500 article in Benzo magazine

Can someone please scan and e-mail me images of the entire Benzo magazine article which featured Albert's eXtreme E500?

I will post them on his page (at my website).

Thank you,

nemo@nemonis.net

Sorry I wasnt clear enough. You can buy a 400E for about 10k, and a 500E is about 15-20K, 500E fenders are about 200 each, then the hood is about 500-700, and the front bumper is about 2k, I think the 500E front end parts are about 5500 list price added up, and then the paint job 8k, and then all the other cool stuff that Albert did, priceless...

A 500E engine is about 6k on ebay...
