Talking Fantasy Poll-Which super car would you go for if you had $100K in 2008..

Hi All,

As the Thread Title says, it is a fantasy poll, which means if you were given $100K and asked to buy any of these cars..which one would you go for and why??

I don't think you can get the Ferrari 599 for 100k$.

For the 100k$ I would get the Aston Martin V8.

I don't know about the other cars, but you "will not" get a 2008 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Coupe for 100k's, price will be around 250-300k.

It amazes me that there is no Nissan GTR in the list. Even more so because it out-performs every car mentioned above.(also not considering the fact that you cant get some of those vehicles for >100k *hint hint*)
Lets see,
1x Nissan GTR Premium (w or w/o markup, doesn't matter)
1x Cobb tuning box
And quite a lot of cash left over to use on fuel

Many of these cars cannot be bought for $100k
And some of these cars are not even supercars.

$100K in India will buy you a $50k car. Thats it.
The humble E class diesel 280 is $100K + OTR

I'd like to buy an F355. They are around $75k now.

Short of that, I'll just learn to drive my Elise better. Driver matters more than the car.

I would go for the Benz. As usual, the dose of engineering and the three pointed star are the reasons behind this.
The engine is not a screamer, but has torque, a thing that can give addictive acceleration, and is more important when accelerating hard out of corners or overtaking ( I am talking about the engine in mid range and not in the top end ).

Voted for MB.

The Masser GT any day of the week. Undoubtebly the sexiest car on the list. I've seen the 911, Aston and Masser side by side, [gotta love madison ave] and the Masser was the hottest looker of the 3 IMO

Tough one. Aston Martin V8 followed by the GranTurismo. Or better still, run a poll among a random sample of the fairer sex and pick the winner. Come on, they are all great cars anyway..
