Jaguar XJ220 - extremely rare, astonishingly fast and amazingly beautiful. Who can forget those headlights!

Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing!
For me, nothing comes close in grabbing attention. And I want mine with a custom full leather interiors and comfortable seats.
Timeless classic head turner!
Can we add an AGE NO BAR to the title too?

There are so many cars out there that the heart desires but as for me, these are the cars which I would have in my garage

1. The Ferrari 355 ( One of the best V8 Ferraris ever made. If looks dont turn heads the sound surely will)

2.The Ferrari F40 ( Means more to me than the F50 or the Enzo)

3. For my daily drive, The Brabus S600 V12 Biturbo 1000Nm @ 2100rpm 720 bhp ( and its officially available in India too )

for me the LP 640 n The ultimate race car F1 GTR n a Lexus LS for daily drives to work(after im employed Lol!!)

but another wild scheme is to get one of these company's to build a car only n only for me alone with a contract saying they will not make another piece of the same car again..!!!
now that's exclusivity!!

Many other qualifying vehicles occupy my fantasies, but the GT-R exists as the "Save money for this."
Did you say pocket rocket? The GT-R would need dinosaur pockets to be classified as such.

I love the look of the new Camaro, and that Black Edition looks sick!

The BMW Isetta has four wheels, not three. In fact they had one at the new 7 Series launch party last night. They also had an absolutely stunning orange 2002Tii in immaculate condition. I would LOVE to have that car.

I couldn't agree more with the sentiment!

My Sunday drive - The 67 GT500

The Supercar - The McLaren SLR

Drooool...Hey Sid now I'm day dreaming like crazy..All Thanks to your thread!!
That Brabus E looks pretty mean!

One thing I'm thinking is, everybody here is so keen to turn heads with their money-no-object supercars, but you'd only be turning your car cleaner's head because most of these cars are not really usable on our roads!

Me, I'd like a BMW 507! Beautiful!

A simple, home-grown Tata TL, 2 door, 4x4 if possible.

Btw, I always thought that the best of only the spices, tea, silks, & diamonds were exported, leaving only the rest for our own consumption. It's only now that I realise that even a Tata TL is !

Absolutely! My choice too. Something with a souped-up engine too. To drive in INDIA, that's my only choice. Certainly will make heads turn towards, and steering wheels away, from it. No more dodging the Blueline (in Delhi) buses and trucks, and the crazy call-centre cabs, and paying thousands to repair bodywork. No more worries of bad roads, no barriers, dividers or frontiers.

The devil's chariot, my all time favourite and not to forget- a 1000% head-turner!

A '50s Jaguar XK120 roadster.
