Dream Daily Driver?

I have noticed the other threads always talking about daily drivers and dream cars...how about this...post your DREAM DAILY DRIVER!

Parameters:

1. Must put at least 50 miles/day
2. You have another vehicle with cargo space for the trips to home depot so you don't have to worry about that aspect.
3. You don't have to put more than two people in it.
4. Money is not an object, thus the term dream.

Ferrari 575M Maranello would be mine. I love the lines, the howl and the built in passion. God bless the Italians.

I lust after the new, not yet released, Corvette Z06. 505 HP, top speed of 190MPH. Zero to 60 in 3.7 seconds.

Hmmm, how much did you say it was?

Money and maintenance no object, eh?

I'd like to try out a Bentley Continental GT

Given that I live in a snowy climate I'd have to say I'd like an Audi RS6 for my daily driver. If climate were also no object I would be commuting in a Ferrari F355 F1 cabrio.

Aston Martin DB9. OMG one of the most beautiful cars ever made. And I think it has optional ejection seats, rockets, and smoke screen!

hey, according to your conditions, I'll choose from the following:


F40
F50
F60 (Enzo)
F430 CS (not out yet)
Zonda
CGT

50 miles/day in a supercar hurts the resale value, but who cares, I'm dreaming, right?

less of a dream?
911 Turbo

The F40 is one of my all time favorite cars, but the idea of driving one daily makes me shudder. No carpet, no door panels, pull-strings to open the doors, fiberglass seats.. It's a go-kart with bodywork. Now I love driving karts but I wouldn't want to commute in one!

I'm almost there. The dream would be to have a 928 GTS as a DD. The S4 is wonderful, but the upgrades in the GTS would be perfect.

Well let's see if I didn't have to pay for the car would I choose a $200K RUF 987 or a yellow V8 Ferrari 360?

This thread should be changed to: "What type of Ferrari do you want as a daily driver?"

ROFL!! Most want the Ferrari until they drive it for awhile and then have to get it repaired. Daily driver becomes a 2-month garage queen waiting for parts.

For me, it'd be an BMW M3 (CSL would be nice, but an SMG would probably be a better "daily" driver).

(The F430 would be my Ferrari of choice.)

Talking

I have a 2004 Box as a daily driver and I am not wanting. I don't even go to car lots to browse. Sometimes I wish it was faster, most of the time I don't. It is nice to get on it hard, often, without losing your license. The motor sounds are the best thing this side of a $200k Ferrari.
