Well, call me a lover boy, But I think my all time, go anywhere vehicle would be a Swift. Have been to Ladakh in it, Plan to Drive to Thailand in it and most of all, have driven to many parts of India in it and is my everyday work around in the city too and Loving every bit of all of it. Why change something which ain't broken ?

If I could own just 1 car, then it has to be a *Mercedes Benz G300 Professional*. That military spec car which people like you and me can buy is all that I ever need. That bulletproof V6 turbo diesel, that body shell, the minimalistic interiors. If only dreams come true

Start drooling

Only car for all seasons and reasons, I can't think beyond the Range Rover Evoque. The most beautiful car I've seen and compact for any use..

Range Rover Evoque- Pure and simple...perfect mix of daily usability, oomph factor, street cred, usable performance. Now if only TML start manufacturing it here and hence bring down the price.

Whoa! Looking at all them replies, I'm very sure it's safe to say that the Evoque is the Maruti Swift of the high end game! Haha..crazy!

This is quite simple for me actually,

If I could only own one car, be it any, I would choose Aston Martin one-77.

I have a soft corner for Astons and this one is the ultimate.

Indeed! I am quite surprised that most people would want to own a (relatively) large car as their only mode of transportation! Of course, relative to other SUVs the Evoque is somewhat small, so I do get why it's getting so many thumbs up! Still, quite an eye opener!

Sadly you'd have to keep it shone and lovingly polished in your living room, because you really wouldn't get very far with it at all!

So an aventador for late nights/early mornings and a BMW R1200R or a BMW k1300r for usual commuting.
Hahah! That's cheating! I should have said "as your only mode of transportation!", but well done!

For me it'll be the new range rover vogue, diesel one. Safe, fast, practical, luxurious, drives well, can go anywhere. I'll buy one eyes closed, this one ticks all the required boxes for me.

Haha. I know. But if I could own that, I could probably pay for it to move around.

Ideally, in real life, I would aim to own an Aston Martin Vanquish/DB9 at a point in time.

This is just not fair, why can't I have more than one car

As if choosing a second car is not tough enough, here I am racking my brain to decide on the only car I can live with...

It has to be a BMW 328i or a Mini Cooper S.

Well, I guess the rocket from Munchen has the edge here

Fully loaded BMW328i sportline, black sapphire exteriors, coral red interiors and then some after market mods.

Default Re: If I could only own ONE car...

Have always had 2-3 vehicles in the Garage so an AT and a Manual, a Sedan and an SUV. If only one is allowed it has to be a Big SUV.

Money no bar? Well then the Mercedes GL or Audi Q7 3.0D - but reliability?
OK so the Land Cruiser, or how about the Porsche Cayenne,
but is money really no bar? Nope so maybe the Montero - but service naah -
so maybe the Fortuner AT - but again no AWD
so maybe the EcoSport for now but for how long - Till wife takes is over completely, and gives me a license to go for something new again.
This is a real tough one, can one really live with one?
