For Steve Ludlum

Steve Ludlum, "Steve of Virginia", writes the Economic Undertow blog, where he is developing a critique of modernity in the tradition of Rousseau and Nietzsche.

Here is an email I received today from BMW.  I own a 22-year old red convertible, a 325ic.  You may see it parked at many a trailhead in the PNW in the summer.

Steve would never settle for such a humble ride; he deserves something road-devouring like the M6 coupe.

Experience the all-new BMW M6 Coupe.     View Online

The power of M—experience it in the latest road-devouring incarnation of the M6 Coupe.

Thanks to its brute V-8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology—delivering 560 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque—this all-new BMW roars from 0-60 in a mere 4.1 seconds.1 And while you’re regaining composure, it’s also producing 10% more power than its V-10 predecessor while using 23% less fuel for added efficiency.2

Yet the M6 retains a softer, more inviting side, with classic coupe proportions and a sleek silhouette edged in M design details. Once inside, carbon-fiber inlays and Merino Leather upholstery highlight its race-inspired interior. An available Bang & Olufsen high-end surround sound system pumps 1,200 watts with orchestra-quality clarity for drivers who demand just as much from luxury as they do from performance.

Clearly, the all-new M6 is ready. The only question left is, are you? Find out below.

Real carz only cause pain and suffering, Steve. Purchasing it would create debt, which the PTB would leverage against us.

But the virtual M6 in this post will always be here for your enjoyment.
