W e never seem to talk about exotic cars much. What are your favorite dream cars. Here are some of mine:

This is actually a replica that has the same body panels as a Stratos, but it a Ferrari 430 underneath.

Also I would not mind a RHD restored one of these:

Mclaren made another good one. Its better than a McLaren F1 road car, but why would I rather have the old McLaren F1?

Super-cars??? I remember my older cousins and I looking for #43. "John" the eldest cousin had a whole stack of Hot-Rod magazines we all used to look through and always searched for Richard Petty...

No car, before or since, has ever said, "Get the f*** out of my way, peasant." quite as well as the V8 Vantage. I've always loved everything about them. Was also the fastest production car in the world back in its day. Brutal.

I take it that the peasants are working on the land... judging by the wheel arch gaps this is an off-road vehicle?

Oh yeah it should have rubber bands on massive rims to fill the arches. I forgot you were a chav wheel lover.

Thankfully you weren't allowed near the Aston design offices!

Chav!! haha!.. but yes, I like modern tyres/profiles..

Perhaps a little lowering would help...? (No, it wouldn't..)

Glad to see Aston now have proper designers.. I'd gladly have one...

Old cars should have old school mags........ when I see a classic with 17 inch rims I want to slap em over the back of the head.

Big mags on a late model Subaru Legacy could work, but not the ridiculous ones!!

Maybe not a "supercar" but for me it was a super car, the Lotus Elan S4SE;

Favorite Supercars 9505
I had mine resprayed in these colours and I still miss it.

I usually always had the hood down, even in the rain!

The aerodynamics were such that if you stayed above 70mph the rain passed over your head.

However the Lotus Elan S4 SE was so light that driving it a 70mph on a wet road was lethal! Very Happy

But in the dry, it always felt glued to the road.

If I could afford to buy and run one I would have one!!

If they didnt enforce safety standards, I bet Lotus could make new ones for like 7,000 pounds or something, and they would be fun and efficient I bet!!

Shame things like that dont happen and new cars have to be safe and heavy and complicated and expensive!!

I'll pick Evo X over any version of Subaru.
There aren't supercar. Though fast, they surely don't look 'expensive'

They have supercar performance, daily practicality, grand touring reliability, without the supercar price tag!!

Evo's are superior in performance to Subaru's, and in New Zealand, these types of cars are traditionally much cheaper than in Australia. Im a Scooby man because I see the value in msny of the performance versions, and I like boxer engines and AWD in all models.
