I would hope ya'll know enough about to cars to understand how HUGE this Mercedes-Benz announcement is. No? Eh, don't feel bad — I didn't either. It's my job to do the research and it's your job to read. Think of it as a nerd/jock relationship. Anyway, generally speaking F1 vehicles are intended for racing — you know, Fast and The Furious type sh*t or more accurately, legitimate races like the Grand Prix.
This car is road car, meaning technically normal folks like you and I could own it! Of course, you'd have to have some FAT pockets. I'm talking Conor McGregor FAT pockets, as the car will actually cost upwards of 3 million dollars, permitting you want to round up.
