I'm actually buying this car in spring 2011... different colour though.

Can't wait. I live in Toronto so any sweet car with 300+ HP I won't be able to fully enjoy. $10k fine for going 50 over the limit and they charge you with street racing and tow your car on the spot and keep it and your liscence for a week.

This beauty here only has 195 HP so I won't ever be tempted to go 50 over the limit... but I will be tempted to take every ****er with a G35 or M3 off the line.

Only downside is it's strictly a summer car and if I get in an accident there's no chance I'll survive as it's only 950 KG's. You're pretty much guaranteed an instant death.

yea. The name of the car is GTR(formally skyline). It's pretty much a legend in Japan.

Pretty surprising. I said Dream Car, any car in the world, you own it. Forget expenses and ****, what car do you just want more than anything else? I think most Americans are not very keen on European cars, they like their huge Escalade's and F-150's that take up 2 lanes and cost enough on gas. It's so much nicer to drive smaller fast cars than those big cars, easier to park, faster, easier to switch lanes. Anyways, I love the Audi R8 and the Lamborghini Reventon too.

Very similar to the car I drive now.

This is the car I plan on getting in 2011 (hopefully), which is my dream car (realistically speaking). My wife just finished school and got a great job in SD, we're moving there in January. I've been saving money since I was in my early teens just to buy this car.



I just want the color to be silver, the retail price is around 120,000. But I'll be financing it.


My all-time dream car, which is the one I'll never be able to afford is:



Mercedes McLaren

I'm about to get my dream car. A friend works for a loan company and purchases repos. I'm getting a 2006 WRX for 4G's.

Ah yes the classic. I've loved that car ever since I was a kid. So despite the fact it's outdated and there is better stuff out there, it would still be my dream car.

Not that i've drivin a lambo but being able to feel/hear a 500hp v12 rumble is probably one of the most orgasmic sounds to the ear . Sports cars and exotics are supposed to tastefully loud, no redneck glass packs though


This is my dream SEDAN
- Benz e55 AMG

This is my dream sports car ( i've already owned a 94 non turbo supra, I just want the turbo one now)


Then the one car i'll probably never have
