An investor goes out and buys the best car on the market, a brand McLaren P1 LM.
It is also the most expensive car in the world, and it costs him $3.7 million
He takes it out for a spin and stops at a red light.
An old man on a moped, looking about 100 years old, pulls up next to him.
The old man looks over at the sleek shiny car and asks, “What kind of car ya got there, sonny?”
The investor replies, “A McLaren P1 LM. It cost $3.7 million dollars!”
“That’s a lot of money,” says the old man. “Why does it cost so much?”
“Because this car can do up to 220 miles an hour!” states the investor proudly.
The moped driver asks, “Mind if I take a look inside?”
“No problem,” replies the investor.
So the old man pokes his head in the window and looks around.
Then, sitting back on his moped, the old man says, “That’s a pretty nice car, all right, but I’ll stick with my moped!”
Just then the light changes, so the investor decides to show the old man just what his car can do.
He floors it, and within 20 seconds, the speedometer reads 150 mph.
Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view mirror – what it could be….and suddenly……
Something whips by him going much faster!
“What on earth could be going faster than my McLaren?” the investor asks himself.
He floors the accelerator and takes the McLaren up to 175 mph.
Then, up ahead of him, he sees that it’s the old man on the moped!
Amazed that the moped could pass his McLaren, he gives it more gas and passes the moped at 200 mph.
He’s feeling pretty good until he looks in his mirror and sees the old man gaining on him AGAIN!
Astounded by the speed of his old guy, he floors the gas pedal and takes the McLaren all the way up to 220 mph.
Not ten seconds later, he sees the moped bearing down on him again!
The McLaren is flat out, and there’s nothing he can do!
Suddenly, the moped plows into the back of his McLaren, demolishing the rear end.
The investor stops and jumps out and , unbelievably, the old man is still alive.
He runs up to the mangled old man and says, “Oh my gosh! Is there anything I can do for you?”
The old man whispers, “Unhook my suspenders from your side mirror.”
