all is talk of nurburgring times is hilarious.

If you can't make it do that, what difference does it make?

Bench racing and bragging rights is all that is worth.

Surely the 599GTB. Love its design and the engine of course.
However the Porsche GT3 crossed my mind!

What about practicality? Yes your dream car, however the country is still India...Imagine any of these over our beautiful potholes...
Its a Fantasy Poll so you're allowed to fantasize about roads, amongst other things. The way things are going, the budget is a fantasy too.

I'd take the Aston Martin V8 Vantage over the others any day. They recently updated the engine and added 20 more horses to it, so now it's even better than last year's.

Unlimited budget? Then it would undoubtedly be the Bugatti Veyron for me. It takes everything to a different level.
If I have to chose from one of the cars mentioned in the poll, it will be the Porsche GT3. The Aston would be next on my list.

I think the fantasy is in buying these cars for $100K. Of course I don't understand the rate of exchange but $100US would not reach most of them.
