    Six cars you would choose?

    I was just having a conversation with a close friend yesterday about: what if you have a lot of money and you don't care about publicity and everything... but you are limited to choose six cars only to have in your stable. Which ones would you choose?
    It was like a problem for me. I love P-cars the most, but I was wondering how much Lambos would I have because I love them, too.
    My list was something like:
    1. Porsche Carrera GT /doesn't need any comments. right?/
    2. Porsche 959 /what a classic!!!/
    3. Porsche 911 GT2 ... fun and pure adrenaline?/
    4. Porsche 991 GT3 RS /for the track of course/
    5. Murcielago 640 LP ... or Gallardo's V10 /just love the sound of the V10 engines!/
    6. Audi S5 as a daily driver /I've never been a fan of Audi's, but that's just looking gorgeous. I have seen several in person/
    I wanted to put a Ferrari F40 or a 575M Maranello, or some Bentleys, R-Rs, Merc S-class... but only six cars?
    I'm also wondering about a Diablo, e46 CSL, Exige... six is not enought

    Re: Six cars you would choose?

    In no particular order....

    Carrera GT
    Koenigsegg CCX
    Zonda

    Re: Six cars you would choose?

    ive had this convo quite a few times. Almost every time, we have to exclude classics or only slot 1 car for classics, because I tend to have 1 or 2 moderns and the rest classics. But as everyone's list up top is modern, here is my list of cars that are still in production and a short rational:

    1.) Pagani Zonda F- The definition of exuberant style, rapacious sound and mind numbing performance. Apologies to the Ferrari 430 Scuderia and such, as you are no longer needed.

    2.) Aston Martin Vanquish S- South Beach roller anyone? It's comfy and beautiful. Two criteria that you don't get from kit cars and supercars. I mean, after driving a Carrera GT and a Zonda F, my back will eventually begin to hurt? Apologies to Mercedes Benz CL class and any and all Bentleys.

    3.) Carrera GT- The car that made me fall in love with Germany. Couldn't live with one not in my stable.

    4.) Range Rover Sport- Cmon guys, you need a handy 4x4 for lugging the drunk buddies around, for picking up supplies, for bad weather and for those nights where one girl isn't enough (apologies to Batman). We should think practical here. Narrowly edging out the BMW X5 4.8i and the Cayenne Turbo S.

    5.) Maserati MC12- I couldn't live without an Italian in my stable, and this is the the more thoroughbred Enzo. Sure its nice to drop Ferrari in conversation, but every rich [beep] has an Enzo, right? Apologies to Lamborghini Reventon.

    6.) Mini Cooper S Works Package- Gotta have something to keep the paparazzi and chicks off my tail. Besides, who picks up their groceries in a Zonda? Might get it scratched by the local assholes... Especially important: When you are surrounded by fake people who harass you for your vehicles all the time, this could be a nice little pH test. Apologies to any other urban beater.

    ------

    If classics were involved, the list would be far different.

    Happy Hollidays everyone.

    1. Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing
    2. Morgan Aero 8
    3. BMW 2002tii
    4. Porsche 911/993 Carrera RS Clubsport
    5. McLaren F1
    6. Ferrari 430 Scuderia

    Re: Six cars you would choose?

    This question needs to be posted differently for Mike S. It should say: If I can only keep 6 of my cars, which ones would I get rid of?

    Re: Six cars you would choose?

    for me its:
    -lamborghini reventon
    -pagani zonda F
    -ferrari f430 scuderia
    -murcielago LP640 roadster
    -Maserati MC12
    -Bugatti veyron

    Re: Six cars you would choose?

    1. Audi A8 W12 SWB (best daily driver for the winter)
    2. 599GTB (daily driver for the summer...)
    3. 997GT2 (track car and also a daily driver if temperature is above 15C)
    4. CooperS (for my wife)
    5. F40 (there is no substitute!)
    6. 365GTB/4 Daytona (perfect for cruising...)


    Re: Six cars you would choose?

    I'm glad to see that a few woke up and included a few classics in their dream collection! who wouldn't want a 300SL Gullwing, a 250 GT California SWB, a Miura, a Bugatti 57C Atalante, a Ford GT40, and the list goes on... I think you need a mix of old and new, hardcore and GT/luxury, so that all six can give you the full range of the spectrum, and that way you can have a totally different driving experience EACH day of the week :-)

    I'd go for (in no particular order):

    1. Ferrari 250 GT California SWB
    2. Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead (2008)
    3. '66 Mustang Shelby 390 GT (only 3 built with a big block in that year) - gotta include a muscle car :-)
    4. Bugatti 57C Atalante
    5. Porsche 993 GT2 (the most powerfull air-cooled, turbo-charged, 2 wheel-drive 911, I think)
    6. Lambo Reventon (just gotta have a cutting edge supercar)

    I was so tempted on making a strictly Ferrari list, or a strictly retro list, but I thought I take time and be creative

    Re: Six cars you would choose?

    1. Lamborghini Reventon
    2. Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 Roadster
    3. Porsche 997 turbo cab RUF Rt12
    4. Porsche Cayenne turbo
    5. Pagani Zonda F
    6. Koenigsegg CCXR

    ROFL!!!

    Re: Six cars you would choose?

    Six cars? No way. If I would be that wealthy I would just order three F430 scud, same specs but different colors so I could drive one each day, no matter how often they break

    Re: Six cars you would choose?

    PS And of course a GT3 RS Mk. II
