Exotic Cars

Here's my current favorite. Apparently not available in the USA until 2012/13
Do you know what it is? What are your favorites? Are you driving one?

Every time I see a pic of someone driving an Atom, they look like they're in a wind tunnel.

I've come late to my appreciation of super & hyper cars. It's all because of a certain British automobile show.
Tesla, however, is a local company. I've been following them for quite some time. I've wanted a Roadster forever (some say it's based on the Evora).

It has a kinetic flux capacitor built into the bottom, it's how you get your time travel bump.

There's a scene in a Top Gear film, where they try to get a Pagani Zonda, a Ferrari, and a Ford GT out of a parking garage in Paris. Serious bullet sweating occurred. I think the Huayra might have lifts.

Hey whitecat, what car is that?

That new Pagani is going to be $1.4 million if they can sell it here.

Am I a sucker for gull wing doors or not?

I do love both of those! The 458 is very nice. The SLR is great but more than double the price of the current MP4-12C (and of course no longer available). Out of the three of them would still have the MP4, but a true carslut would have all three of course, hopefully in multiple colours.

Didn't he also design the DB9? (which I find scrumptious. I just wouldn't want to pay the fuel bill)

Supercars are a bit silly. I don't know what to do with a car that can get you a speeding ticket in second gear.
So the difference between really, really, really fast and really, really, really, really, really fast is kinda academic.
So sex appeal becomes the deciding factor.
So I gotta go with the Aston Martin. That thing is gorgeous!

Porsche Cayman Sport S or Mercedes SLS plus anything touched by Zagato, particularly the 3 Aston Martin Zagato models I know of.

Here's something a little more down to earth. I'm not so sure about its orangeness. Perhaps get it in blue?

2012 Ford Focus ST (concept)

Check this out. Jay Leno with Mr. Pagani and his new car.
http://www.jaylenosgarage.com/video/...uayra/1354710/

For you car guys- Leno is serious. And he has one of the greatest private collections in the world. He doesn't have a Duesenberg, he has a Duesenberg SECTION!
Same with Bentley and Bugatti.
And they all run.
Have a look

Im saddened to see so many of these cars wont be coming out with a manual transmission. The 438, the Lambo Aventador, the Pagani hoowaraydyx2.3234324..all autos (flappy paddles dont count, if you dont need to work a clutch, its an auto .

I dont want Ferrari and Lambo to make their cars easier to drive for the likes of the Kardashians. They should be death traps that scare ppl on the side of the street. The Lamborghini I love is the company that put a small hammer in the glove compartment in case you rolled over your Countach and needed to bust out the front window to escape from the burning wreckage.

As much as I like the new stuff, I love the older stuff. Coutach, Ferrari F40, Alfa 8C Monzas etc. What I wouldnt do to drive, much less own a Ferrari 250TR:

Hey Flux;
"I dont want Ferrari and Lambo to make their cars easier to drive for the likes of the Kardashians. They should be death traps that scare ppl on the side of the street. The Lamborghini I love is the company that put a small hammer in the glove compartment in case you rolled over your Countach and needed to bust out the front window to escape from the burning wreckage."

I couldn't agree more, sadly enough that actually happened to me with my last Ferrari, the only difference was the local farmers came out when they heard the wreck and broke the rest of the windows out with hammers, and dragged me out! I had flipped over twice, and slid a few hundred feet into a tree, upside down!
Anyhow,
After that accident, a few days later, I went with three broken ribs, (amongst other things) to the Ferrari dealer and bought this.
A 1992 512 TR, and never looked back.

Actually just put her to sleep for the long NY winter.
Went into storage yesterday and won't come out again till April.

The sad truth is that 'the likes of the Kardashians' make up may be 95% of the customer base of those type of cars. Without them none of the makers would continue to exist.

Indeed.
The Shah of Persia had his Miura SVJ delivered to his St Moritz skiing lodge fitted with studded tyres and kept it there for a few years before moving it to Teheran.
