Default GXP whoreage

Well I was at a classic car show on the aug 1st long weekend and a dealer brought a GXP to show people.

Here are the pics I managed to get. I sat in it and did not want to get out. Renée didn't want to sit in it cause she knew that she would want to drive it away that day, hehe.
and NO I AM NOT THE ONE IN THE PICTURES, I AM THE ONE TAKING THE PICTURES, hehe.

Actually, there'* a "units" button on the dash to change from km/h to mph. But the car tops out at 141 mph OR 226 km/h so you will never need that 240 on the gauge. And if you do run out of gauge, I'm sure the HUD will continually deliver the speed.
