Picture of the Day

The country where I'm working is rich. The per capita income is almost $150,000--the world's highest. (Some statistics fail to exclude guest-workers, who outnumber natives by as much as 4:1.)

Tangible evidence? In the States, I've only seen one Mercedes-Benz SLR AMG. I've spied dozens of 'um here:

I've even run across at least one Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren--which was moving too fast to get a pic.

For the environmentally conscious in Bahrain, there'll soon be a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG E-Cell.

"... power in the SLS AMG E-Cell is routed through four electric motors, one at each wheel. With 526 hp and 649 lb-ft of torque — the latter available from 0 rpm — the SLS E-Cell is in league with some venerable supercars, even though it tips the scales at a considerable 4400 pounds."
