Which Car Do You Dream Of At The Moment?

Sat Aug 20, 2011 4:02 pm

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.

Mine two dream cars are polar opposites and probably a little strange.

No. 1 A Morgan Three Wheeler, fun to drive, not too expensive, looks like nothing else on the road.

No. 2 Mercedes R Class, got to be the best family car ever made, it's not pretty but boy is it practicle, comfortable and a pleasure to drive. I've now got three kids (no. 3 born 5 weeks ago) this is my daddy dream family car

2012 Boss 302 in Yellow Blaze Metallic Tri-coat would be my next choice, not the Laguna Seca edition though ... don't care for the red trim and rear seat delete.

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.

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.

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.

“Realistically” speaking, the BMW 3-series E46 as a Touring, and “30d”, that is the three-litre Diesel engine with 204 horsepower and, with the correct exhaust, a possibility to roar like no other car can (not the loudness or “quality” of the roar, but the type of roar):

Yup, as a coupé it looks much nicer! Front LED’s would be a problem because every single light source of the whole CAR is an LED! Either you mean the fugly DRL LED stripes – that wouldn’t be a problem, simply turn them off………or change their function into a huge turn signal.

If I were to buy an F1 car, however, it'd be the 1996 FW18 - to my eyes, the best looking F1 car ever. I really love the Rothmans livery that the Williams cars had from 1994-1997.

My bad. I remembered that you were into old full-size Mercurys in general and Mercury convertibles as a group, but I didn't recall that you lusted after '69-'70 Marquis convertibles specifically. If it's any consolation, there was probably something seriously wrong with the Marquis convertible I mentioned because it sat with a "for sale" sign in it's windshield for several months.

Either you mean the fugly DRL LED stripes – that wouldn’t be a problem, simply turn them off………or change their function into a huge turn signal.

Those be the ones ... they were fine until Walmart started selling them and now every Ricer and Cobalt has them all over the cars     

Another car I'd love to have but I keep forgetting about it since I rarely ever see one ... but today was a good day and I saw one ... 2003 - 2008 Ford GT

If I had all the money in the world to buy a car, I'd buy a Bentley Continental GT. It's the modern day Bond car.

Spot on, count me in. But only if its NOT silver.
Great car.

Just today I found this new concept car, imho the best looking car from the US since my childhood days:

No Ford GT for me, but in the vein of "I keep forgetting about them since I rarely ever see one", I've wanted an '81-'90 Dodge Ramcharger 2WD for years and years. I like the idea of the toughness and roominess of a full-sized pickup truck combined with the convenience of a station wagon, but without the additional weight and maintenance of a 4WD chassis.
