1. McLarenF1: Gordon Murray, carbon fibre, 240.1 mph, 25,000 pound service charge, 0-100 in 3.2 secs, gold lined engine-bay, BMW engine.... i can go on and on and on, but never has a car had each element so perfectly put together... never has, i doubt ever will be.
2. Ferrari F40: What do you do when you give a race driver to design a car. The result is the F-40. Why? Just ask the owners who pretty much roast away when temps hit 35 degrees, their boring journeys w/o any music. But then again, who needs music when you have that brilliant motor behind you belting out a symphony and an AC, bah!, it wud only slow it down and keep you away from that throttling sound....neat!
3. Ferrari 288 GTO: The less said, the better. The fact that so many of us have put it on our top 10 list is saying a lot.
4. Porsche 959: Driven one, very slow. But man, that was enough to tell me what woulda happened if i revved her hard. After all how many supercars can lap a circuit real fast and then go on to win a Paris Dakar rally... twice. Only one.
5. Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster: Nothing comes close to it in terms of sheer beauty, style and hot looks. Put it this way, she's the girl who's photograph is enough to make your pants wet, so having her in bed.... get the flow?
6. DeTomaso Pantera: Sheer beauty in a shell that undoubtedly screams at you... Italian. That V8, is so throaty, makes you feel like Bob Marley reliving all over again.
7. Aston Martin Vantage: Truly a man's car.
8. Lamborghini Miura: Only two things on earth ever created have been worthy of being called, "the most beautiful". One is the Concorde, the other the Miura.
9. Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 (1973): Ok it doesn't fit one of the parameters, power. But it feels more like a 300 hp car. Try it out on NFS5 and u will fall in love with the car. Just the way i did. And watch it, as it kills even the 1975 911 turbo and 1978 if you can (gotta get a hang of the car). Very fast, light, well sorted out suspensions, loads of opposite lock... yumm.
10. Lamborghini Gallardo: New kid on the block. Beats the shit out of the 911 turbo and 360 modena. And when its done killing the two, it retires to a nearby discotheque where it is respected for another reason. Its looks.

Whew, so there really is someone up there

Heres my top 10 ever!

1. Ferrari 288 GTO = The Italian muscle car. Style. Panache. Power and built by the great Enzo himself.
2. Ferrari Enzo = Saw it in person. Nothing combines technology and power the way the Enzo does. Also partially developed by M Schumacher.
3. The Mclaren F1 = Was ahead of its time when launched, and still is. Frighteningly FAST!
4. Lamborghini Diablo = If I had the money, I'd buy one just for the SOUND. Its outrageously exotic looks are also second to none.
5. Ford Shelby GT500 = Pure American Muscle. Only a really really good driver can drive this car well. Has looks that kill. Spells T-A-S-T-E.
6. Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV = Outrageous, aggresive, flash. This was the second last model, the final was the anniversary butttttttttt the anniversary ed did not have that lovely rear spoiler.
7. Ferrari F40 = Again built by the great Enzo himself. A track car with 2 doors.
8. Dodge Viper = The snake has beckoned. No substitute for sheer cubic capacity. Styling that kills. Pure detroit muscle.
9. Ferrari F355 = arguably the best drivers Ferrari ever?
10. Is yet to be made.
