To be honest if I were buying a car under 100k it would bt the GTR over 100K it would have to be a 599.

Heh, i noticed that looks are really important for most of you guys in picking out your fantasy, Makes me feel like a robot for always choosing high performance over everything. Still not going to change my choice though

PS: If you want a good-looking car, its undoubtedly the Maserati Gran Tourismo.

The one and only car in my garage would be an M5.Nothing more,nothing less, nothing compromised , nothing comes close to perfection of what a complete "automobile" should be(Currently).

People all over the world confuse how to quote this car. Supercar, Sports Saloon, Practical Speedster,Driver's Paradise,owner's pride,all these for sure .

If I were to spend this kind of money, I'd go for the brands that I have lusted for all these years (Ferrari + Porsche). A front-engined Ferrari? No thanks. My choice is the stupendously racy Porsche GT3. And I'd spend a little of the money saved over the Ferrari on racetrack driving schools. Then, I'd beat all of you in your fancy cars

Nissan GTR all the way! No second thoughts.

After I get my GTR, I'll have to get my Lexus. So my vote for that!

Nice choice.

I'd go with the Corvette ZR-1, 7.24 around the Nurburgring, 6.2 litre supercharged V8, 640 bhp, but more importantly, 858 nm @ 3,800 rpm!

That takes up the whole budget, though.

However, since when do the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Coupe, the Aston Martin and the Maserati GranTourismo fit into a $100,000 price tag??? The cars suggested in the poll for the $100,000 are wrong.

The Merc CL 550 for me. But if I am given a free hand to choose what i want to in $ 100 K, i would buy myself a Ariel Atom 3 (0-60MPH : 2.7 sec, 0-100 : 6.8 sec, 600BHP per tonne) which would nuke any car above, below, to the left and the right

Cheers,
AC

I love how everyone wants the fastest car for the buck, or are looking at stats etc...

What about practicality? Yes your dream car, however the country is still India...Imagine any of these over our beautiful potholes...

Damn my Masser will probably never leave the compound, that's ok though it'll have a white spyder friend to chill with
