CarZi HQ is Moving to Toronto

CarZi.com headquarters is moving downtown Toronto, Ontario! Since it’s birth in March 2007 CarZi HQ was based out of Mississauga, ON. In fact I have been living like a frugal student / startup entrepreneur in a basement of a noisy shared house since I graduated from University in 2002. I have lived as efficiently as possible for the last 6 years in order to maximize my time, energy and to stretch every dollar in order to grow CarZi and Madwhips! In the last year, I was able to attend 25+ car shows around the world from Miami, Tokyo, Germany, LA and Vegas. I snapped over 50,000 photos which are all shared on MadWhips and wrote over 600+ posts on CarZi!

World’s Ugliest McLaren SLR Pictures


red gold dream ugly mclaren slr 999

This red beast is called the Red Gold Dream McLaren SLR 999 and the 999 refers to the car’s ability to pump out 1000hp. In reality the name most accurately reflects the owner: BOZO the CLOWN.

Just when we thought we had seen the cheesiest and cheapest call for attention with the fake Chrome Mclaren SLR brought to you by some attention needy clowns in Dubai, we are unpleased to announce we have found the world’s ugliest McLaren SLR. This disgrace of an SLR gives this modified UGLY Corvette C3 a run for it’s money.

Gemballa markets this as the “New striking super sportscar in SUV format” and we agree, but is it a threat to all the sports cars out there? Lets investigate.
