Coolest car name! The BMW Golden Thunder

Yes indeed. The BMW 8-series Golden Thunder Edition now holds the crown.

If you care to know it, which you probably do because you clicked on this link, the coolest car name in the world - up until yesterday - was the the Rolls-Royce Dawn Black. Indeed.

But, this is better: Golden Thunder. This BMW special edition 8-series is all about that gold and boasts it all the way from the wheels to the side mirrors, to those gold accents where the interior aluminium trim used to be. Holy smokes. How brilliantly cheesy is all of that?

Very, we say. But, we'd be lying if we said we didn't like it. We do. Very much! But, from a distance that is.

Thank goodness these aren't coming to South Africa. Sjoe...
