Hi Vivek. I guess that would be a bit OT. Why not start a thread on rentals, members would be able to add inputs & we will get to know about the worldwide rental scene too.

Cool

It's a long list (in order of year of introduction) -
1955 Mercedes - Benz 300SL Coupe
1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I Convertible
1964 Aston Martin DB5
1964 Ferrari 250 LM
1968 Lamborghini Miura P400S
1972 Lancia Stratos
1986 Lamborghini Countach LP5000 QV
1987 Ferrari F40
1992 Bugatti EB110 SS
1993 Jaguar XJ220
1994 McLaren F1
1998 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR
2003 Porsche Carrera GT
2005 Ford GT
2006 Bugatti Veyron

If I had to choose only one from the above, then it would definitely be the F40, although all the 60s cars are too beautiful!

Default Re: Your Dream Car / Dream Garage

Here goes mine

- Aston Martin DBS volante for that 'air-in-the-hair' feel

- Ferrari 599 GTO -- RWD and a V12, drift monster

- Audi RS5 in red colour, What a Looker!!

- E60 BMW M5 for the boy-racer in me

- Range Rover Autobiography for those cross-country drives (and no... i'm not heading towards the Mexican border Due Date style)

- Maserati Quattroporte as a daily driver

- Rolls Royce Phantom EWB for those special occasions where you want everyone to know you have arrived and for my parents to get pampered in the backseat

- SLS AMG just for the gullwings, I want this

- 69 Shelby GT500 sportsroof. Its the one muscle car I always wanted. Just like the one Vin Diesel had in Tokyo Drift, I want that something sticking out of the hood which flips when the gas is pushed.

- Pajero SWB for those Ladakh and Rann trips

The car used in Fast n Furious 3: tokoyo Drift was a 1967 Mustang not a GT500. And the picture you have attached is of the Charger used in the first movie, The fast n furious.

Thanks for improving my knowledge but i posted the picture as a reference about what I would need in my GT500. Also I gave the reference of the movie for the same reason. I think I should have encircled that part in the picture so I would have been more clear.
Thanks.

BTW, what is this part that is protruding out? Is it just for those mean looks or for some purpose?

I am no expert but The protruding thingy is knows as a Butterfly valve.These are connected to a supercharger underneath.This technique is called Forced Air induction. This setup basically send high pressure air into the engine and thus POWER!! (clarkson style)
