Crankandpiston’s top-notch photography team has been expanding its reach as of late, and we hope you’re enjoying the results. Try as we do though, sometimes it’s just not possible to fit every picture into their respective posts. Swearing and weeping only gets us so far, and some photos inevitably hit the cutting room floor.

Our bank balances heaved a weary sigh when we spent some time with Brabus’ €245,500 700 Biturbo and € 207,000 800 Limousine. Power, lunacy and desire all in equal measure with these 6.0+ litre animals.
