My vote will go to Nissan GTR. On a lighter note I would guess after 10-15 yrs Maruti 800 or Ambassador can also be a head turner (rare = head turner)

Default Mustan GT 500

My choice :- Mustang GT 500

Discription :- The 1966 was differentiated in body color (non-white versions were introduced colors included blue, red, green and black, as well as the original white) and trim. The "Le Mans" stripes were continued as an option, as in 1965. It featured special quarter-panel windows and rear air scoops on each side and an optional automatic transmission. A fold-down rear seat was now standard as well. Where early 1965 cars had black engine blocks, 1966 and later cars had the 289 engine painted blue. The first 252 GT-350s for 1966 were "carry-over" cars. They had the 1965 Ford Mustang Bodies and 1965 Ford Mustang serial numbers under their Shelby serial numbers. They had mostly 1965 features including standard Koni shocks and engines painted black. Blue engines did not occur in 1966 until after these 252 "carry-over" models were produced. 1966 production was 1373 fastbacks including two prototypes and four drag cars and 252 "carry-over" models with Ford Mustang 1965 bodies. 1001 Hertz fastbacks were produced, including two prototypes. Four convertibles were also produced, for a total of 2378 units for 1966.
Shelby struck a deal with the Hertz Corporation to produce a special line of GT350s for rent which were subsequently sold to the public after their rental-car lives were finished. These "GT350H" cars are quite rare and sought-after today, with some examples selling for more than $120,000. Shelby produced 1000 of these cars: 800 in Raven Black, and 50 each in Candy Apple Red, Wimbledon White, Sapphire Blue and Ivy Green. All Hertz cars featured gold LeMans stripes and rocker panel stripes. Early "Hertz" cars were available with four-speed manual transmissions until so many cars were returned from rental with burned and broken clutch assemblies that all of the later cars shipped to Hertz were equipped with an automatic transmission.[citation needed] Many were rented to use as production class cars at SCCA events, some were returned with different engines, holes where roll bars had been welded in, and other modifications to legally run on the track.
Production numbers: GT350 2,380 units (four were special order convertibles for Carroll Shelby, the rumor is that six were made, but only four VINs have been discovered). The brakes were enlarged because of the extra power. New components such as under-hood suspension bracing were used. Staggered rear shock absorbers prevented wheel hop and axle wind-up. Functional air intake scoops were added to force air to the rear brake pads, helping keep them cool.

My first priority will be to get a car that makes my own head turn. That's why it will be an ENZO.

its one hell of a car, probably the best pin up of all time. if you ask me to imagine a supercar when i was about 10 - 15 yrs of age, all i could think of was the shape of a countach or a lotus espirit. evocative shapes.

but i will also have to agree with the previous post of a ferrari 250 SWB (Short Wheel Base), yes these are head turners in their own right. but there is no point when most cannot associate with it. Just something different will not make someone think twice. which is why my vote still will go for the Peel P50. its so painfuly different and unique, it will turn the most number of heads.

I'd have to go for Nissan GTR V-Spec, probably something I'll actually even buy in a few years. Or the Maserati Quattroporte.
