Dream Car Thread

Post up a pic and description of your dream car - any make, any model.

I love the 2014 Porsche 911 RSR. 4.0 liter flat six making 470hp. And the coolest part - you can buy one for around 800,000 (well, if you happen to have a good working relationship with the Porsche factory racing team).

The koenigsegg agera R. Lovely car, and I'd almost kill for one. Kinda expensive tho and far from a realistic dream car.

For me it has always been a toss-up, Jaguar XJ13 or Ferrari Lusso

I don't have pics, but most of you already know the ones I am talking about.

Pagani Zonda R or Ferrari F50

How about this McLaren P1 that was at the race track two weeks ago? Nice car. Very nice car. Slow driver. Hard to blame him, it cost almost $300K - I'd drive it carefully too.

Worth dreaming for regardless haha.... think the two are hard enough to confuse, they just came out with a new car, the 650S... it has performance and price inbetween the p1 and 12c.... but to be even more confusing... the car has the front of a p1 and the rear of a 12c.... and nothing of its own haha.

There are lots of cars I would love to own (DB5, 550 Spyder, 918, etc) but if money was no object, and I did not need to reliably be anywhere on time I would get an Aston Martin Vantage S as my daily driver.

Now is the time to buy an NSX - as soon as the new 2015 NSX comes out the original model will skyrocket in value (IMHO).

Can't decide what color, may have to paint to sample.
