Being the petrol head that i am, i constantly walk around and dream of a specific super car i wish i could afford.



Right now (has been for a long time) it's a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560, i can't get enough of that raging bull of a V10 engine they put in that one. There's a guy who lives in my neighbourhood that drives one and the first thing that hits you is how damn loud the car is. Even at low revs and slow traffic it's a mighty loud rumble that comes from those chromed tail pipes. Even better in pedal to the metal acceleration of course.


Ain't nothing like a finely tuned V8, V10 or V12, i'll tell you all that. Goddamn the sound is like the best of music, or even better...

Aston Martin DBS for me. Easy pick...

Gorgeous car, exudes class, quality, and fine workmanship. Couple that with one of the finest V-12s ever designed, and you've got an instant classic.

Now, if we're talking about which classic car do I lust after - it would have to be a 1969 Maserati Ghibli SS, or an Iso Griffo.

They made the new SLK look fantastic. It may be a chick car but that is one hell of a chick car. SLK is a fantastic handling car. Was just driving the family's 2011 E350 on the highway. Mercedes cars are just fantastic.

Awesome car! This would be my "super" dream car.

As for a somewhat realistic dream car it would be this.
2011 Touareg Hybrid. Now I do not want a hybrid for gas saving or anything like that. It is just because it is the biggest and most powerful engine model they have.

'Fly, I really wish you had mentioned that you wanted one of these two years ago. There was a dirty and badly oxidized but otherwise apparently complete, original, and rust-free example for sale near here. I won't tell you how much they were asking for it because that info would be likely to make you cry.

Not fair is it, it's only 100,000 USD with the options I'd like in the US, I could easily afford that, I'm sure you could to. Crazy that it costs 3.5 to 4 times as much in Norway.
