Default Muscle, Exotic or Tuner...which car would YOU choose?

Need For Speed gave me this option when i started my career in the game.
Tried the Tuner car first..a Mazda RX8...loved it..tremendous scope for mods..beautiful sound.Can be an attention grabber

Next tried the exotic;An Alfa ROmeo I think...Crap.Snob value..

And finally the Muscle.Aaaaah!Power power power.Handling $ucked.Bad Boy car.

So what would be you choice if you were given the three different types of cars and asked to pick one...and why?

Happy Voting

Muscle car all the way for me.. Sets a different class in itself.. Lots of scope for modifications also.. and obviously the tuned growl of the massive V8, V12 toutched up with the whine of a Supercharger after 2500 rpm.
The Gleaming chrome, The paint, The seats.. Holding that steering and kowing that you command a beast which is capable of mass destruction and putting down most of the famous Tuner and exotics.

Well, between the 3 options, I'd take a tuner car. But personally, I'd rather get neither of the 3, and go for a Q car like an M5 instead.

No thinking about if given the option i would choose a muscle car anyday
car i would like would be 1969 chevy chevelle SS 454
man people say the factory said that it has around 425 bhp but when people dyno it in stock it went way above the 500+ and that to in factory form
2 Man rear wheel drive (me want to a wheelie on it like in fast and the furious )
3the sound man ask abhibh and he will tell how a V8 hums the sweet song which comes out man will kill to hear it
4 for the way the car shakes went the engine is rubbed
5 and people don't expect a 35 year old car to move fast
6 and the feeling you get when sitting behind a 7L v8 and you know you can take anything these ricer can throw at you


And tell me what mods you need in a car which comes out of the factory producing 500+bhp

Toonner!!! My favorite.
Nissan Skyline GTR and Mitsu EVO by the end will make others hide in envy!!

I own some Muscles just for the fun of it and I use some for drifts. That's really fun using a Muscle and a steering wheel with Force feedback.

Exotics are great for the proud factor. Especially when friends visit your home and wanna see what you drive! Saying a line like: I drive an SLR in the evenings!! WOW!!!

If I had the money, it would be an Exotic Supercar for me.
Owning an Aston Martin / Ferrari / Lambo / Porsche will definitely make me feel like I've achieved something in life. Driving these cars is a pleasure too.
Boyracers and muscle cars are OK if one's on a limited budget. But, if money is not a problem, an exotic supercar any day.
Where are my DB9 keys?
