Seems this model came and went awfully fast.
Does anybody here know the 411 on these digital monstrosities?
I can buy one one for fairly cheap but lots of driving, wondering if it's worth my time.

That's a Cabrio of the F&P/SmartDrive design.  "Vantage" is the model name.  WTW7990XG.  It was expen$ive at the time, circa 2011 -- $1,999.

I would love to get my hands on one of these beasts! I do not like the Cabrio wash systems all that much, but I feel like this previous generation was far better. This machine has so many cycles it is unreal. What a unique machine!

When these models were on their way out, they could be found for $699 each.

I agree with our man in London, it does look cool. All other considerations aside, you are not going to get looks like this in a TL machine anytime soon.
