Dream Car. What's yours?

Post by xXBuryTheDeadXx » 01 Sep 2010, 19:57

My dream car would have to be a 1969 Dodge Charger r/t in black as such. What I would do is drop a Injection hood in it as well as a supercharger. But it is your turn.... What is your dream car!

If I were you I would just maintain the classic and don't modify it! :D

My dream car is probably the Lamborghini Gallardo (any edition of it).

Neah. I would really like to keep it basic but I would like to put that stuff into the car and have it put out a bit more horsepower. It would also give it a deeper purr to it. :wink:

I'm between the Ferrari 599GTB or the 498 Italia right now. I'm not usually a huge Ferrari fan, but their latest machines are some of the best they've ever made, from looks to performance.

A 1968 Chevy Camaro S/S. Preferably one built by Sarasota Motorsports in Sarasota, FL. So, it's not technically a 1968 Camaro, they build everything themselves (chassis and all), but it's modeled after that one. And I'd get a twin turbocharged engine in it that they also build from the ground up. This car would run me over $100,000, so it's definitely a dream car.

Any Rolls Royce, but this one seems very nice: http://pictures.topspeed.com/IMG/crop/2 ... 460x0w.jpg

I am saving up for a Jaguar S-Type (out of production); green or possibly sky blue: http://jaguarstype.net/jaguar_s_type_5.jpg

As someone who obviously likes the old styling of Jaguar, how do you feel about the latest iteration of the XJ?: http://www.rpmgo.com/cars/v/2010_jaguar ... 8.jpg.html

Very different, but I think it has a very strong but still somewhat regal stance. And in person, it's huge.

I love the front end but like so may cars these days the rear looks awful.

As for my car, I love the Aston Martin Vanquish for style ,

But for sheer power and speed the Ferrari Enzo

No, I'm not really a fan. Looking at from a distance, I couldn't tell you what brand it is. So I think it's lost its identity.

Worth a look: the Peugeot 407

I'm surprised, a Peugeot that actually looks decent. Maybe for once it might be reliable too...

I actually did work experience at Jaguar's head office and saw this model when it was in the prototyping stages, built up in full size models, and to be honest I preferred the look of the prototypes to the production models. And I agree that the back looks odd, as do a lot of other new cars.

The Ferrari 458 is an absolutely stunning car and very quick in comparison to older models (F430, 360): http://www.speedhud.com/wp-content/uplo ... nge-04.jpg
