No doubt that it has to be a Nissan Skyline or a Toyota Supra. Tune the $*** outta these cars to do the 1/4mile in 8seconds or less

If its Indian cars, the Skoda RS or the Accord V6 or a more simpler Honda City VTEC

no two ways about this one

- OHC
- Mitsubhishi Lancer

Also
- Chevrolet UVA : it has a good body, but absolutely hopless styling, one can really turn this car around

if it has to be in india i would choose OHC VTEC or Lancer.

In USA or Europe, i would probably get a e39 m5 and transplant a v10 from present m5.
you may ask why, because e39 5 series in my opinion is the last of the best looking bmw's.
