Here's mine. Not 10 (cuz its just not possible ), but some

1. Lamborghini Countach- yea yea yea, this lambOH! lover has one on the list. Its great to look at, but too darn stupid to drive. And thats something i don't wanna be while driving one.

2. Jaguar XJR15- A car that is spin-king. Umm.... well thats just about it.

3. Isedera Commendatore- Car,van what?

4. Still thinking.......

Tough question because there is no longer a supercar that I hate. After a lot of thinking, I came up with this list. Let's just say that it's a list of supercars I like less.

#1. Lamborghini Countach - The only supercar that I've ever hated.
#2. Jaguar XJR15 - Spin Doctor.
#3. Ferrari F50 - Don't know why, but, it just dosen't appeal to me.

There are others too.... the CLK GTR, McLaren SLR and a few Ferraris, but, I don't have the heart to put them here.

Trust me, if anyone were to gift any of these cars, I'll gladly accept it.... even the Countach!

acura nsx
isdera commendatore
all the koenigsegg models
ferrari f50
italdesign scighera (it was just a concept, but a true reminder that even supercars can be this ugly)
ferrari mondial
jaguar xj220
pagani zonda c12
laraki fulgura

the countach defines the word 'car' for me. i still remember the posters all across my room when i was a kid......i used to drool over the car, and i still do. the design is nothing but automotive excess, one of gandini's masterpieces with the sloping, trademark lamborghini rear wheel arches. being a 70's thru 80's supercar, it's a difficult car to drive.....but italian supercars are supposed to be bad tempered, unforgiving and hard to live with. unlike many cars today, the countach even without the badges is instantaneously recognizable as a supercar, something that is capable of insanely crazy speeds, and one that can fetch u a speeding ticket while standing still......a symbol of the glorious years that have slipped by.

Yeah, the "Countach" was xtra-ordinary. A design, way too "Radical" for it's time.

May i ask why?

Is it because it is like drinking champagne out of paper cups so to speak?

doesnt fill the "supercar requirement" on all accounts?

u said it rehaan. in my view, the nsx lacks the soul and charisma of a supercar. technically it might be an exotic, but it has got no pedigree. that makes quite a lotta difference i guess.

One look at the opening sequence of Cannonball Run will probably make u guys fall in love with the Countach
Never driven anything other than my old fiat or siena. But...
Hate the CLK GTR...way too ugly.
Ferrari Modena...screwed up the clean lines of the F355 and i hate the huge nostrils in the front. But i guess it would be fun to drve.
Jaguar XJ220..wat were they thinking when they made this.
Vector w8...american excess.
VW's supercar..dont even bother to remember the name. Good they stopped at the first example.
Spectre R45..naah..dont even bother to find out what this was.

Well, thats where my lovestory began with the countach. Have both the cannonball dvds and have watched that run atleast 200 times. Everytime I listen to the roar of that V12 on full throttle...I want one.

Well, the Countach, as a supercar, was great!! But anybody who's driven one will tell you that it was one of the worst, driver's supercar.

The Coutach looked like a supercar, but it didn't handle like one.

You wanna turn heads, get a Countach, but if you love to push your car around, you'd be better off with an Elise.

The problem with most supercars is that they have all the show in the world, but very few actually drive the way they look and there are those that don't look the way they drive.

The Countach is probably one off those very few supercars, which i don't mind waiting for an hour, just to get a glimpse of it but, i'll never buy one (even if i was the richest guy on the planet and the Coutach was the only car in the world).
