Well well well, everybody so far has put in a Ferrari there, great. Hey crazi4speed, i agree 5 is too less, and right now i myself feel like changing it to say 7 or 8. But hey, then what's the fun in it, rite .

So here goes my list:

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 5 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?)

Hey Revv

I see you have two of the Ferraris from my list on urs. Only difference is thay come at no. 2 and no. 3. The Porsche 959 is another common between us. But hey I'm surprised you dont have a Raging Bull in your top 5 there

Cheers

Mine -

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.
