If there had been one more option by the name 'Flair' a.k.a 'Italian', it'd have got my vote. Anyways, my next preference would be Solid and Sound German Engineering.

Well. Absolutely no like or dislike based on country of origin. It is a flat world after all. I see no reason for this thread even.

German due to elegant design, solid engineering although electronics
can be faulty, robust engines. Europe in general is much more stylish,
US on the other hand goes with Big is Good

Well to drive in my dreams I would love to own iconic Italian make.

Logically I would drive Korean ( i already drive one !!)
For my family I would present Japanese ( reliable )
For my parents I would give German ( got some status symbol )

But I am proud of Indian Models ( we can also make good car )

It can be. The Ford Focus which was made in Europe was a great car. The same car made in the U.S suffered a lot because of reliability issues. It gave such a bad name to the car model that it still lingers. It was supposed to easily overshadow the Civic and Corolla.

Haven't heard the same about a Japanese car. Their processes are good and they maintain the quality everywhere.

Japanese would be my first preference (be it suzuki, honda, toyota or any other company). Second would be Germans ,for sheer luxury and engineering (when they become a bit affordable). Would love to pick a Ford ,a Fiat or a TATA Safari one day (Third preference, and as a second vehicle).

The Car currently being used by the Engineers of Aixtreme Racing (Formula Student Team of Aachen University)

What car you prefer?-img_1313.jpg

I would prefer Trabant 601 S, its 2 cylinder 600cc, Simple no electronics still went on the right side of the Autobahn attracting attention at around 120kmph and the best part is its fuel efficient ( that is important for students)
The picture shows the Car, my team leader and our lovely powder coated structure !!
Love German Engineering
