    If you could own one sports/performance car, what would it be?

    Me, I quite fancy a Prodrive 550 Maranello:

    Either that or the new DBR9:

    The Enzo is an incredible car, no doubt about it. The sexiest, most lusted after by me car in the world is still aJaguar XKE roadster. Mid to late sixties with the 4.2 twin cam six. A twin cam Lotus Europa would be second, but I doubt I could get into one now. On the two-wheeled side, Euro-spec mid nineties RG500 Gamma,
    Things equal to other things are not necessarily the same.

    Yeah but the GT40 is a pure race car.

    It will eat just about anything on the road today.

    nice links, but you'll have a hard time persuading me away from my dream motor - a 1975 austin allegro, preferably in mustard yellow.

    a car like that just oozes class, and probably a little brake fluid.
