Personally I would take the Porsche or the Ford GT. The other ones looks like cheap plastic cars.

Where did the Enzo go? That would be my top choice.

But in all reality, why have one of these when you can have an E55 or M5, which are much cheaper, more practical, yet perform fairly equally given what they are? Also, they don't look too fast to the untrained eye, so it would be fun to snap them Vette/Camaro/Mustang drivers egos in half.  Wink/being sarcastic

But to respect your thread, and its options, I would have to go with the Carrera GT. It is a beast and a half.

the Carrera GT rivals the Enzo not the base 360. I would take the Enzo given the choice but will have to settle for a 360 or 626bhp SLR

None them to be honest but if I had to keep one of those, I'd go with the Ford GT.

If one were to be given to me, I'd take one of the expensive European ones and sell it. Use that money for flight school.
I'd still keep my old Lincoln.

One thing that wonders me a little bit.

Why does people outside Germany even want to spend so damn much money on a car if you are not allowed to drive fast in them?
I understand that people in Germany does it because they have the Autobahn. But the rest of the world. Do they have unlimited speed limit on their Interstates as well?

Just as fast? I don't think so....

Also the others don't come with the patented GM body panel rattle and creak.

VonRichtofen:
A guy around the cornor from me let me drive his 1978 Chevorlet Corvette 25th Anniversary Editon. All original with factory 8track in dash. No GM 'body panel rattle and creak' to report.


OYRJA:
We have the state of Montana and U.S. hiway 50 in Nevada between Fallon and Ely.
The fastest I've ever driven was 126 mph in my old 1977 Lincoln. That was in rural northern California on I-5.
Unfortunatley our laws are slanted against the poor. Fines levied should be based on income like in Sweden. That way rich folks can't laugh at the law as they do while a poor person has to scrape pennies together to pay for a broken tail light fine.  Sad

Damn 126mph is like 200km/h  Wow!
That is pretty impressive  Big thumbs up
The fastest I have been driving is about 143mph. And that was in a Volvo S60 T5 on Autobahn 1½ year ago. And that felt pretty fast.
The fastest I have been driving in the US is 100mph. The damn rental car had a chip so I couldnøt go faster.

I totally agree. The fines should be measured of of how much you make pr. year. The only nordic countries I think they don't have it in is Denmark. I wish it was the same here as well. The rich people should feel that they are breaking the law.
