Yes bro, I have a dedicated driver who washes the car nicely. Prior to the LP I had the 997 Carrera.

My list for now is :

F430 Scuderia/California GT
Nissan GTR V Spec
997 911 GT2
AM V8 Vantage

Not in that order though and all that is for use in India. Add to that a Zonda F (hope I can find one as it is no longer in production) , the mighty Veyron, Corvette ZR1 and it goes on ..

For now I am seriously looking at a daily driver car for city use as the LP isn't practical for daily use. Am tossing up between the M3/ Maserati GTS/997 Turbo/AM V8 .. So all in all a broad spectrum.. Lets see what happens. May even consider the Chevy Challenger next year.

ecksreturns: One thing.

I wanted to ask one thing... you havn't really moded your car silencer till now. Right?
Or does Labo. roar less as compared to Porsche?
I mean, if you had accelerated your younger bro. porshce just llike your lambo, then i think acceleration noises would have surely reached my house.

definately not that! the scud spider is anyday much much better

also for a DD what do think about fast SUV's the gemballa cayenne turbo's are much more powerful than even LP640's

Ronnie, I must say, you never cease to pleasantly surprise me. I am amazed on your awareness .. It's as good as mine.

Don't know anything for sure, but call me dumb if any one will, I wanna wait for the Chevy Challenger now.. Who can say no to a lazy American Muscle? I know I can't.

Nissan Gt-r in consideration. The machine's lovely.

I mentioned the V Spec. That is bound to be quicker.

ecks why dont you go in for a suv for everyday use? The cayenne turbo has got some real power or if you need something more like you LP get the SL65 AMG or even the SLK 55 AMG.

I do drive the CR V for daily use .. He He He...

I am not a big fan of the SL's at all and the Cayenne (no disrespect) looks like a duck to me... He He... Had the Range Rover been a powerful car, I would've considered that too..

That is why I am a bit confused on all fronts + since I just got the LP a couple of months back, I dare not push my papa to get me another vehicle for 6 -8 months at least.. So enough time for me to think. =)

having anyone of these in your garage will always be a pleasant site. But the GTR Vspec and and Scuderia dont really go well for a daily drive in India.

Still my vote will be for the GTR. There is nothing that offers more value for money than this in this segment. I also like the ZR1. But I assume you might want 4 seats occasionally.

Oh that was the list of cars yet to be a part of my garage in India.

For DD I have this list as I mentioned in a previous post :

"Am tossing up between the M3/ Maserati GTS/997 Turbo/AM V8"

The 4 seats/looks/power being the dilemma as there is no perfect match for it (The GTR is one of the cars that sits nicely in the frame but service is an issue or may be I am a bit paranoid .. He He he )
