It is true that money can’t buy happiness but somehow it is much more comfortable crying in your dream car than on a bicycle. With a dream car comes the thrill of an adrenaline rush as you are pushed back in your seat by the break neck acceleration or sit up with the spine chilling instant braking.

Whether it is the Lamborghini you wish to travel to work in or the Bugatti Veyron, here is a ist of the meanest automobiles available to buy, and no, the Rolls Royce is not even close to the bottom.

    ET, good initiative, introducing Pakistani people with different luxury items, as once again Pakistani nation is going upward. Last time when Pakistani nation was on its peak, the elite were showing its strength by the number of women in any harem. In 1739, after defeating Mughal Army, Nadir Shah asked then Prime Minister number his harem, the Prime Minister told Nadir Shah that he had 850 women in his harem. Recommend
