    Ordered new sportscar

    Well... After some thinking and after about 10 test drives I decided to order new sportscar.

    Which one? SmileySmileySmiley

    Just this-it is not the lastest tech car and it will be a true keeper for me. My decision is based on pure pleasure that this sportscar is giving. At least to me. So many poeple are making decision based on new tech that is offered by latest models. Well, I reversed the process. For a keeper manual gearbox it is.

    My criteria? Excellent build quality, amazing sound, nice looks and car need to be usable daily(to some point).

    In early June 2011 you will now my choice with lots of pics and impressions.

    Can't be since he insinuated a manual transmission. I would think along the lines of an R8 V10 manual.

    Re: Ordered new sportscar

     Well done...... I'll guess also for the R8 V10 ( if you had not mentioned manual, I would of said SLS )

    Re: Ordered new sportscar

    He said "old", not the latest technology but he can still buy it new. He also mentioned that he wants manual because it is a keeper for the future.

    Sorry guys but I'd say he gets himself a Porsche.

    Re: Ordered new sportscar

    Can't be a 911 as he said it has an "amazing sound"   I'm guessing it's either another R8 or he's got himself a deal on a Gallardo LP550-2.

     

     


    Re: Ordered new sportscar

      Gallardo LP550-2, my bet for sure!

    Agreed; "excellent build quality" would eliminate Lambos (IMO) and "amazing sound" is not a GTS, more likely something with the Mezger engine - take your pick.

    To Christian, Iain and rest of my firends. Some of you get it right!

    BTW, Christian, for sure I will get an Porsche! BUT, it will be 991 Carrera S PDK in January 2012. Simply said, Porsche 991 Carrera S PDK is a must for me.

    My keeper is V10 NA manual...

     I vote for the LP550-2 as well.


    Re: Ordered new sportscar

    I hope you went for the Lambo Kreso

    Re: Ordered new sportscar

    Nobody mentioned the Carrera GT? Best sound, V10 NA, Manual, definitely a keeper!  

     

     

    I know I know, he said it's not a Porsche, too bad...


    Re: Ordered new sportscar

    LP550, nice choice, great car!!


    --

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Ordered new sportscar

    Hmm, this thread is not in the Porsche/Ferrari/AMG/BMW/Lambo/Lotus forum, I assume because the car is not from those brands.

    I vote...................................................................................................MAZDA MIATA!!!!!!! haha


    Re: Ordered new sportscar

    No it must be Dodge Viper,old tech manual V10 NA:)


    Re: Ordered new sportscar

     Vote for the Gallardo as well. Excellent choice! 


    Re: Ordered new sportscar

     GT3 RS! Absolute keeper, solid build quality, amazing sound, manual shift!

    Great Choice - congrats


    Re: Ordered new sportscar

    GT3 RSRSRSRSRS that's right if you keep going with limited editions it'll eventually be a 5.7L V10

    Re: Ordered new sportscar

    Ohhhh yeeees JoeRockhead - this seems to be a very very special Gallardo!


    Re: Ordered new sportscar

    In the summary of all attributes ist must be the Carrera GT. Otherwise: maybe the Audi R8 V 10? We will see.... :-)
