…Brabus is making a monster?

Brabus Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Roadster

If the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Roadster just doesn’t do it for you, then maybe you need to check out the Brabus edition. (Or get a better sense of what does it for you.)

Featuring a new front spoiler made of exposed carbon fiber, a carbon fiber rear diffuser, 20 inch Brabus Monoblock VI wheels, special camshafts, a fuel cooling system, high-performance exhaust (the car is now up to 650hp from the supercharged V8) and a clutch-type limited-slip differential, the roadster will now get to 62 mph in just 3.6 seconds, with a new top speed of 209 mph.

Inside, there’s now custom leather trim, a flat-bottom sports steering wheel with integrated buttons for shifting gears, and carbon fiber trim for the dashboard, center console, and door.

Need more?

That’s just too damn bad, because it might not be possible.

…The USPS will deliver anything?

Mail Dollars

Ever wonder what the limits are on the types of things you can get to someone else via the United States Postal Service? Improbable Research decided to find out by conducting some experimental testing and sending a variety of unpackaged items to U.S. destinations, appropriately stamped for weight and size. The results are pretty amazing, and I must say I’m impressed with the USPS.
