Robert Emslie March 1, 2013 Mystery Car 39 Comments


Let the March Madness begin! Of course I’m not talking about NCAA Basketball, but the madness that sets in knowing that it’s Friday and time for another Mystery Car contest. Based on the movement of the constellations it’s traditionally said that March roars in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb, and while we’ve got some time before mutton season, today is March 1st so you should be ready to roar.

What does that have with today’s Mystery Car? Well, I’m not saying it has anything at all. What does have impact are the rules, and just so that we’re all clear, those are: make, model, likely engine, and year range to win. You are now fully armed to tackle today’s contest. And while your at it, you might want to also contemplate what it is about this month that makes everyone so crazy – Mad as a March Hare, March Madness – and maybe you’ll want to ask, Yo March, why you so mad bro?

    Wouldn't happen to be a Chrysler ME 4-12, would it? They put a V12 in there, and I think it was 2003 or 04.

    I have been here almost two years and literally never guessed the mystery car correctly. You guys are incredible.

      I'm right there with you. I have been here since inception and I have gotten it twice but only one counted as the first time I was about a minute too late. The knowledge here is impressive.

      Don't give up, this game is still afoot until it's called.

      Even if you know it, you've got to post before anyone else does.
      I think I've only recognized two (A Spyker a few weeks back and a Momo Mirage some time ago), but I've never been the first to post.
      This is probably because the ones I know are relatively easy.

      I've been here a while as well and only guessed one about a half hour after it was identified correctly. These guys are impressive.

      Best I've ever done is an assist. I figured out what part of a car was pictured (and even got the right make of V8, but wrong car and engine location). That allowed someone else to figure out what it really was.

        I've gotten one, then we went so obscure for a stretch that I'm just getting back in the hunt. Here's my win:

        EDIT: To keep everyone interested, it's better than any COTD or star… Just saying.

    Fiat Punto?

    Right manufacturer, wrong concept.
    I'm going with the Chrysler Firepower concept of 2006, with the 6.1 L Hemi V8.

  • 2009-current Mercedes SLS with 6.2L AMG V8.

    This one is for sale (you might have seen it on the CLCrapshoot). Supercharged. NSX. WANT SO HARD.

    • pj134

      Kind of looks like a McLaren.

        I don't have to post a pic of what I'm selling! I post what I want! I'm not a part of your system!!

      Wait, muthalovin posts a non-NSX non-answer on a Mystery Car post? What's this world coming to?

      • Man, that website that I stole that image from swapped those pictures! Bastards. If you click the CL ad, there are NSX pictures.

    I believe the Firepower was based on a Viper chassis, which is interesting if that's what it actually is. (otherwise it isn't)
