    Re: Dream car garage...which cars would you pick?

    Very tough. Here is today's list. I think this is in budget Smiley :

    1. 911 Reimagined by Singer Vehicle Design - nod to the greatest sports car of all time and air cooled engines
    2. Ferrari F40 - Iconic and challenging to drive. Enzo's swan song .
    3. Porsche Carrera GT - Peerless V10 ( it's time I bought one)
    4. McLaren 720S Spider- everyday supercar with astonishing capabilities. Roof off in case the sun comes out in UK
    5. Ferrari 458 Speciale - greatest naturally aspirated mid engined V8 of all time. Makes you feel like a driving God.
    6. Ferrari F12TDF - I'm a V12 guy  - how come there is only one on this list Smiley
    7. Lamborghini Urus - category of one and serves as the one practical car as there ought to be one on the list.

    Well, I chose a 599 GTO Smiley  


    Re: Dream car garage...which cars would you pick?

    S-850 Brabus for daily driving

    Cullinan as family car for bad weather

    911 Singer for fun

    Carrera GT (car I missed the most)

    Aston Martin V600 Le Mans (car on my bucket list)

    Bentley Supersports as alternative daily

    Phantom for family events, dinners out, etc

    no Lusso for me, my wife has one and it's an overrated piece of crap (like all Ferraris anyway)

    No super exotics either, I don't care about just staring at them in my garage and can't fit in them anyway, since most of them are designed for midgets.

    McLaren F1 would definitely be on my list (based on the original list price!)

    Nice choices but surely over budget at current market prices.

    Here's today's version. No modern 911 in the first version which can't be right. McLaren sacrificed.

    Serious question, is that car worth the money? A friend drove one and said it's fun but not worth $50K.

    Find a decent alternative that has 4 doors and seats 4 comfortably and handles and got power. And fully loaded it's not much more than 45k CAD. And AMG CLA45 is a full 10K+ more.

    Nothing come close in price. 

    Plus, it's stealthy.

    Build quality is excellent, material used is even better than those Tesla costing way more.

    Thanks. Focus RS and STi I suppose are the direct competitors, and both are pretty capable. Don’t know about build quality in either, but neither interior looks like it belongs in a car of that price, so maybe the money went into the drivetrains. None of the 3 would make a bad 7th car I guess. Smiley

    Focus is American made. That tells you a lot about build quality already.

    Re: Dream car garage...which cars would you pick?

    FWIW, I have rode in the Mac F1, the Ferrari F40 and driven the CGT, Stradle, Speciale and some of the other cars listed.

    I'm not one for older cars but this one gets my attention.

    Focus RS is actually built in Western Germany

    Re: Dream car garage...which cars would you pick?

    The F1 does have the best seating.  Utilize why others have not followed suit. Was there not a Lancia a long time ago with central 💺 my for the driver?  


    Re: Dream car garage...which cars would you pick?

    There was a Matra Simca Baghera with 3 seats in a row but the driver was to the side.matra_bagheera_drawing.jpeg

    Before F1, there was a 1966 Ferrari 365 Berlinetta Speciale Tre Posti and it had the driver seating in the middle.dxc6wf4ipusbauitrqn0.jpg

    Not in the (Rennteam) dream car garage budget I'm afraid... Smiley

    Also, be honest: Would you really drive a 20+ Mio. car on public roads with all those idiot drivers around you?! Smiley

    I know that Futch does it but this is why I love this guy, he doesn't care. He sold his LFA though, my son is so mad at him (mostly because he had hoped for a chance to drive in it, poor guy Smiley). Smiley
