What Crisis? Kirkham Motorsports Creates Roadster, Book

October 12, 2009

Some people clearly haven't gotten that memo about the global economic downturn -- for example, Oracle's Larry Ellison, who commissioned Kirkham Motorsports to create "the ultimate, cost is no object, [sic] roadster". We don't know how much Larry paid, but we're guessing Kirkham got a nice chunk of change. And now the company is hoping to generate more dough by publishing an "extremely" limited-edition book that documents the roadster's creation. The cost? $4,500. In exchange, buyers get a 12" x 12" tome with a real aluminum cover, and on the inside, paper that's genuine cover stock. (You know, like postcards are printed on? Classy.) We just hope they proofed it better than they proofed their website. [KirkhamMotorsports]
