What's your dream Supercar?  No doubt we all had atleast one favourite supercar poster hanging up on our bedroom walls when we were young.

So post what your dream car is/was - if you had all the money in the world what would ya be drivin??

Ferrari F40... Lamborghini Diablo... Porsche 911 Turbo...

Mine would have to be the Koenigsegg CCX at around $1,000,000 it has over 800bhp at the rear wheels - The engine is a 4.7L Supercharged DOHC V8 which does about 400km/hr.  It took the Sweedz 15 years to design and it is one of the best looking Supercars out there.

To be honest, I'm picking the Veyron for its technological achievements. Being able to reach 400km/h with comfort to spare in the cabin is a massive feat.

Yes technologically it is a very advanced supercar and yes it does reach 400km/h very fast..  In a straight line that is. 

The Mclaren F1 however.. Laughing

Comparing apples with oranges, there. The Veyron is a luxury supercar. The McLaren F1 (my all time favourite) is a lightweight road-legal F1 car.

The McLaren F1 isn't very Luxury that I know but it's definitely a supercar.

Well since others have taken the Bugatti and Veyron, I'd choose something which would save me a bit of cash for mods, R35 GTR, love it or hate it, it's still a nice luxury ride


that or a SSC Aero TT 1183bhp, 411.99kph, fastest production car in the world, but it doesn't look as good as a bugatti




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

Agreed I'd have a Godzilla any day - mind you the GTR R35 wasn't given the name Godzilla but it very well should of been called that with all the power it has under that hood.

Have to agree with the new Veyron. 0 - 100 in less than 4 secs to 200 in 10 and can stop from 200 in just over 4 secs (not that i would wanna do that as could be a little stomach wrenching.) Prior to the Veyron it was the Ferrari F40.

+ 1 Veyron, that car is just amazing, the things they had to/ have done to acheive what it can.

but if i could pick two it would have to be the  Lamborghini Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce as second.

Aston Marton DBS, may not be the fastest thing out there, but who needs a quick car when you have that much style?
