Default The Livable Supercar ?

Ok guys now we all know that supercars are for Fun and style but imagine faced with the problems of living with one.Imagine things like routine city driving , comfort , equipment , technology , ease of use , maintanence, diveability and ofcource style.Then which of the supercars fullfills this job to the fullest?


IMO the Mercedes SLR Mclaren is the most comfortable,luxurious,easy to use supercar with a very easily accessible topspeed in excess of 200mph.The second one will be the Porsche Carrera GT but buy a far distance..

I dont care about practicality. And thus will go for my object of desire - The Ferrari Enzo.

Buttttttttttttttttttt the Mclaren F1 would win as a daily usage hands down. Its even got space for luggage!

I would go for the Porsche Carrera GT. Porsches are extremely reliable cars. The Mclaren F1 would come as a second preference for me

That's one of the reason why my vote goes to the Mclaren F1.

It's not just one of the fastest production cars but, it's said to be very driver friendly within city limits.

It's light weight means that it'll be relatively more FE than the other supercars.

Probably the only car on the list that can seat more than 2 adults.

And with luggage space, equal to that of a Fiesta boot......space is never a problem.

If I am able to afford any of these cars, then Iam in dreamland, which means I can afford the F1 too.

Come on, it's got boot space in the sides, three proper seats, the best driving position in thw world. It notifies Mclaren engineers regularly about the car's condition and they keep you updated.
The controls are light enough for easy everyday use, the visibility is excellent all around. It has one of the best engines ever made and packs a megaton punch that was unrivalled for 12 years.


The only two other cars I considered were the Murcie and the CGT.

Regular cars? Merve did mention supercars.


My vote goes for the SLR. I was having a difficult time choosing between the two but in the end, it turns out that for me SLR would be the most easy to live with.

Merve, how come no M5? Would have voted for that with my eyes closed.

For daily usage, it would have to be the SLR and that's the one I voted for. But, I still feel it dosen't look great and sucks overall. My favourites in this poll are the CGT, F1 and Ford GT.

The Ford GT for me guys...have always had a soft corner to that car...its the sexiest looking car,according to me.
Then it would obviously be the Porsche, followed by the Enzo...and the SLR.
