COST : 54,164 .. fortunately my career allows me such luxuries

Now let's get into some picures

Appologize for the color.. just a generic pic

Honestly I have found that while I love all the other cars ive admired.. this one suits me and my desires best. Plus its fairly easy to work on if I would like to. I am a low key luxury guy and a huge fan of plugin hybrids because they are the best of both worlds. Lincoln does low key luxury the best IMHO .. Even if its an old man car. Thats just me

Your Turn


I couldn't decide Nissan GT-R or McLaren 650s, so I decided to get both in one automobile.

2017 Acura NSX


Base Price: $150,000

Engine Type: twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 24-valve 3.5-liter V-6
Electric Motor Type Front: two permanent-magnet synchronous AC
Electric Motor Type Rear: permanent-magnet synchronous AC
Total System Power: 560 hp

Front: 1-speed direct drive
Rear: 9-speed dual-clutch automatic with manual shifting mode

0–60 mph: 2.7 sec
0–100 mph: 6.4 sec
Standing 1/4-Mile: 10.8 sec
Top Speed: 190 mph

The GT-R is an incredible hi-tek machine but it has no soul and I don't really like the looks too much.
The McLaren is amazing but I am not sure if it is a car I would want to drive everyday.
The NSX is a super car that is at it's heart a Honda. It will always start, the A/C will work and it is All-Wheel Drive like my Subaru.

The best part? Designed and built in Marysville, Ohio about 40 miles from here. USA! USA!

But my real dream car would be to have my WRX restored to better than new condition.


I'm assuming the car has to be bone stock/pre configured? In which case, Boss 429

* Engine 428.8-cu-in/7027cc OHV V-8, 1×4-bbl Holley carburetor
* Power and torque (SAE gross) 375 hp @ 5200 rpm, 450 lb-ft @ 3400 rpm (underrated for insurance purposes, actual horsepower closer to 500)
* Drivetrain 4-speed manual, RWD
* Brakes front solid disc, rear: drum
* Suspension front: control arms, coil springs, anti-roll bar; rear, live axle, leaf springs
* Dimensions L: 187.4 in, W: 71.7 in, H: 51.5 in
* Weight 3400 lb
* Performance 0-60 mph: 5.3 sec, quarter mile: 12.3 sec @ 112 mph, 60-0 mph: NA ft (Motor Trend, April 1970, test car engine blueprinted, suspension/tire setup for B/Stock drag racing)
* Price when new $4925
* Price of like new low miles model today $500,000+


While I can't provide the level of detail that you have in the OP, I'll share my dream car.

2008-2014 Caterham 7 "Superlight R500" (S3 Chassis)


  • CPT Duratec (Ford Duratec 20 derivative) I4 2.0l - Indirect injection, chain drive

  • Manual 6-speed sequential

  • 263 HP / 177 ft-lb (0-60 2.88s, 150mph max)

  • Curb weight: 1116 lbs



  • Black kevlar buckets, grey 3-point retractable harnesses

  • Black carpet w/ red trim

  • US standard drive position (left side drive seat)

Retail cost: $65,000 - $79,000

Resell price: $50,000 (averaged)

Sadly my career (or lack of) means by the time I can afford this car the world will be out of gasoline. However the reasonably priced ($25,000) Road Sport versions with a bit less performance I could see myself getting in the next 5 years.

Details are a bit vague since I've got very little info on most of what is IN these little bastards. I've only ever seen one in real life, and that was 10 years ago (not a Superlight, but a version of the "Classic" on the same S3 chassis)

Alright pics time:

^^^ Not the same model/color, but that's what the car looks like with the windshield/doors/canopy installed. I know the cars equipped with the 2-point bar have a canopy but I can't find a pic of it.

Oh yeah and production numbers for the R500 are a whopping total of 176 cars.


The possibilities and variations are endless with the 7. I was autocrossing and this guy had one with this insane Toyota engine that could rev to 12,000 RPM. It sounded like a sewing machine being chased by a swarm of angry hornets.

My brother is building a "LoCost" (Lotus) 7 replicar. He has the frame built and bought a junk ex- racer Miata as a donor car. He has been working on getting the Miata running well before he takes it apart. I told him "That's well and good, but now that the Miata is running you have no reason to finish the Lotus."

My Master's thesis was a Finite Element Structural Analysis of the Lotus/Caterham 7 frame.
Also I wear this so you can say I'm a bit of a fan.


Oh god... too many to choose from.

If kit cars count then I'm torn between a Caterham and one of these because I like to be different.

Caterham has already been posted so here's a vid of the sterling:

Not sure what engine I'd throw in there though... it's made for a suzuki (but you can get it / build it for any engine because kit car).

If i were to pick a car I can drive off a lot, however, It'd probably be an Alfa 4C Coupe with only a few options.

Color: ROSSO COMPETIZIONE TRI-COAT (of course... the color I like the best is the most expensive)

Wheels: The chrome 5 hole ones

Interior: Just cloth... Leather is too hot and tougher to maintain

It costs ~$62k...

Edit: Forgot to put a bike here

Indian Springfield but with some accessories not shown in the pic:

I'd have to add: chrome fender tips and bumpers, highway pegs, driver&passenger backrest, saddlebag racks, speaker system, cup holder, maybe some wind protection on the highway bars

And a custom paintjob of course; Dark red metallic with black gradient/ghost flames

At first when I was browsing this thread I thought about new shiny cars, 1 billion HP, a computers stolen from NSA to drive the thing, almost negative weight, crazy aereodinamics and so on. Than something striked in my head and I remembered of this:

Lamborghini Countach 5000 Quattrovalvole. What more I have to say?
That's my dream car, same colour as the one in the pic!

I know plenty of cars that i would like to have.
I dont realy know where to start.

But i will start with the first one.

Alfa Romeo Giullia Quadrifoglio Verde

  • Engine: 2.9 ltr V6 Twin turbo 520HP
  • Transmission: 6 speed manual.
  • Rear wheel drive.

918 spyder...

All you need to know...

P.S. P1 is second on my list followed by M5 and M4

I just want to have any amg tuned merc

'58 Corvette


THat is really interesting. a 2.9 liter huh. Not many engines with 2990cc displacement. Maybe it works in its favor. I am personally a fan of .5 liter cyclinders but thats me. I do like that it make 510 HP. I would have to question its longevity though. I mean we see most manufactures in the 2.5-2.7 range pushing 450 so I wonder how the extra 60 will effect it


Beautiful car

No worries. Not everyone needs to. Though i will encourage it because specs are like cable porn. You cant get enough of them!

Tesla P100D ludicrous
That is a battery pack with one tenth a megawatt in capacity
Id wager 2.5 0-60 easy.
If the p90d has clocked 2.6 - 2.7 0-60
Then that 11-12% larger battery has to give a little acceleration boost too

Uhmm now hold on there. One little descrepency.. First off Amazing car... awesome choice. Second off electrical machines are not like ICE. Bigger does not mean better or faster haha. Spool time is inverse to size. THough there will be more torque it could take more time. Got any benches on that or is it not out?

Well its build by Ferrari so i guess they know how to build an engine.

The motors in the current Tesla vehicles are actually limited by the maximum amperage output Peaks available from the battery packs

if you go to the website and look at any of the vehicle listings
the larger the battery pack
the higher the acceleration

is due to the higher amount of cells able to peak output more juice

also electric vehicles GAIN performance in all wheel drive versus rear wheel drive configurations

I think I replied to one of the older threads already, but here's a few of my dream cars . . .

obligatory 2002 Nissan Skyline GTR R34 V-spec II

1971 Hemi Cuda

Wiesmann MF3


I have to mention my other Dream Vehicle. For a long time I wanted a Chenowth Navy Seals dune buggy.

But now I want a Local Motors Rally Fighter. Essentially it is a full race off road truck with a fiberglass body and a comfortable interior. The catch is, You can't buy one...

you have to build it.

You travel to their factory and the Local Motors mechanics help you bolt together your car. Any level of customization is possible. I want mine with a Mad Max theme.
