What good is an exotic car when you can't open it up on the highway?

The Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder is my absolute dream car. I really like the DB9 as well, but if I had to make a choice it would be the Lambo.

Pretty quick, funky looks.

I am kind of partial to the Bugatti Veyron or the Koenigsegg, but you really can't go wrong with a Enzo.

I guess I don't love exotics the way I used to .  I guess turning 31 and expecting a baby next year will do that to you.  5 years ago, I could have told you the MSRP's for each one, their wheelbases and curb weights, and how many gallons each one of their fuel-tanks holds.  Not any more.

My next car will be an Audi S4 Avant.

Oh yeah- If I had to choose one of the cars above, it would be the Aston Martin.

The Audi R8 was the best car is sports car racing history, why wouldn't you buy it, plus the AUDI is just the best. Watch a show called top gear on BBC america they will do a review on it soon, and that show rocks, they actually will say a supercar sucks if it really does.

If you don't want to wait for the horrible watered down version that we get in the states you can watch it here >>>

That quote alone would make me want it, I don't care what it does or how it looks.  Nice way with words.

DB9, but I've always had a thing about Astons since I was little. If it was a supercar I had to live with, it owuld definitely be the Jaguar XF. BTW, Top Gear is the best show on BBC

If we're talking just for the weekend i'd have an Alfa Romeo 8c Competizione, any longer than that though it would probably breakdown.

Yaris?  


By yaris I mean I want a Bugatti Veyron.

But I would really rather have a Moto GP bike for a weekend.  Give me Ducati Desmosedeci with all the moto gp goodies like the 15.0:1 compression and the dry-sump system over the "street" Desmosedici's 13.5:1 compression and wet sump system.  I want to feel that baby roar.  I want to sit on a 240 horsepower 400 pound rocket.  And put a nos kit on it for me.
