2008 Carlsson Aigner CK65 RS

The Carlsson Aigner CK65 RS seems to sense that this road into the hills above Monte Carlo is gradually opening up and it piles on the speed almost instinctively. Freed from the tight and winding roads around Casino Square, the red-and-black peril simply sucks up the black ribbon of road.

There's no nautical feeling of 2 tons getting up on a bow wave, just a shimmy from the wide rear tires as 700 turbocharged horsepower wrestles with the stability control computer of this highly tuned Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG.

Suddenly we overlook the eye-watering price tag of $465,000. Instead we remember the glimpse of the mouthed expletive from the window of a police cruiser that we passed in Casino Square and we finally appreciate the work that's gone into this monster.

We're aboard the finest grand touring car available at any price. Carlsson says to think of this as a Maybach for those who actually like to drive.

The subtleties of racetrack engineering might elude the kind of customers that will buy the 2008 Carlsson CK65 RS Eau Rouge. When all is said and done, this is a super-fast limousine with a sporting look. But Rolf Hartge believes those who purchase one of these limited-edition cars will relish the simple knowledge that almost nothing can stay with this ostentatious display of wealth at the traffic lights.

This is as close as Carlsson's new car will ever come to Eau Rouge in the real world, but given the chance, this Maybach for real drivers is a match for any luxury GT on the planet.
