As I was making my way across the country back to DC, there it was:<P>A black XC90 driving westbound on I-70 about 40 miles outside of Kansas City, MO. Appeared to have AZ plates, but I could be wrong.<P>Of course, I had to be going eastbound, but don't think I didn't think of crossing that median!<P>It looked great. I wonder how many of them are out there.

I have heard, from VCNA staff, that there are three "million-dollar prototypes" in the US, at this time.<P>Yannis<BR><P>

Wow, that is really cool! Sometimes I wish I lived in AZ just so I could see all of the different 'test' vehicles and 'prototypes' running around. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>-Drew

If you get the chance, check out the Hoover Dam. I don't know why but it seems to be a gathering hole for prototypes (when it gets busy they duck down into the parking lot just off the crossing on the Arizona side as I recall.)<P>Good luck.<P>-rdo<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by InDy:<BR><B>Wow, that is really cool!

They were the same color and were parked together. I thought mmm...I didn't know the TT came in a converatble. This was probably before they came out but I didn't think anything of it, other than, "Hey look, those Audi are the same color, I wonder if they are in a car club traveling the country." I should have known.<P>

I guess I wasn't really paying much attention since I was in such awe of the dam itself. It was my first visit to the Hoover Dam. But, next time I will keep my eye out for auto-anomalies. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>-Drew<BR>
