Need some random facts to impress your friends this week?  No problem, we've got you covered.  Ever wonder how much profit a car manufacturer actually makes after you've haggled every last dollar out of the salesperson?  Well if you are assuming it's gotta be an are correct, BUT would you also assume the biggest loser was an exotic!?  Ferrari takes home the honors with a whopping $80,000 in profit per car but the biggest loser is Bentley who loses about $20,000 per car (Tesla isn't too far behind, losing around $12,000 per car).  Not all companies report these stats but they did highlight a few other European brands including Porsche with a very respectable $17,000 in profit per car.  Other Euro rivals BMW, Audi and Mercedes saw profit levels about half of Porsche and Jaguar/Land Rover squeaked by with just under $1,000 in profit.

Watch This:

Vintage 4x4s seem to be having a moment but most won't be used for anything more than a Costco run.  This Pinzgauer, however was restored and built to be the workhorse it was designed to be.  eGarage does a great job telling the story of Branden Powell and his search and rescue "SARPinz"

We Want This:

If you are paying attention, you might recall we featured a Rover in the last digest but this one is too good to ignore so this week you get another Rover.  Here you have a super rare, legitimate 1995 Camel Trophy Discovery 1 that is up for sale in Spain.  There are a lot of replicas but very few real ones.....let alone in this condition.  The reserve wasn't met in it's last auction so someone needs to buy this piece of history.  Do you think it's worth $40,000+?

The Loudest Tires Around

People usually opt for a tire that doesn't produce a lot of noise.  That is unless it's a Pirelli that contains a 100W speaker.  For the car enthusiast who has it all.....this unique speaker can be yours for just around $2,700.
