Default money no bar, which car would you buy/import in India to make heads turn at any cost?

there were times when in 1983, the 800 was considered neighbours envy, owners pride, then came cielo, then benz and now many other imports.

i have noticed that how big or expensive or sleek and small they may be, the number of heads they turn is miniscule.
even sports cars turn almost no heads today, compared to an unusual thing like a reva. whereever it goes, it turns heads because it just looks-different.

so, if money no bar, which vehicle would you buy/ import on Indian roads just to make heads TURN AT ANY COST?

my choice:
the engine pictured is a 3.5 litre, twin turbo direct gasoline injection ecoboost with 355 bhp, offered in this vehicle.

My Choice-
Bugatti Veyron 16.4-

With its 16-cylinder four-wheel drive, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 may well be the most sophisticated production vehicle of all times.

Most of the components tucked beneath its hood are ingenious innovations that were formerly only deemed possible by visionaries like Ferdinand Piëch.
Boasting a maximum speed of more than 400 km per hour, the Veyron is unmatched in the super sports category. It offers a total of 1,001 HP, and its ample power reserves even at high speeds are the fabric of dreams for luxury-class limousines: for a constant speed of 250 km/h, the Veyron only needs 270-280 HP. This means that the seven-gear clutch transmission works with a torque of up to 1,250 Newton meters. The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) ensures the necessary flexibility and maneuverability at any speed. The Veyron reaches velocities that would literally lift the car off the ground – if it weren’t for its ingenious aerodynamics, which keeps it firmly on the road even at full speed. Adjusting the back spoiler, reducing ground clearance, opening and closing the lids – it all adds to the perfect balance between propulsion and downforce. Such a super sports car may not seem to be brought to a halt easily, but the Veyron’s ceramic brakes slow it down faster than it can accelerate. While it takes this exceptional car only 2.5 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h, it needs even less time – a mere 2.3 seconds – to come to a standstill from 100 (reference point). To reduce the risk of injuries in accidents, Bugatti had a Formula 1 safety concept adapted for the Veyron. All these technical details combine to make the Veyron a truly exceptional super sports car.

My opinion: The Bentleys and the Rolls Roys are still by large the greatest head turners and combine luxury, power and performance, all in one. Money well spent, as compared to Buggati Veyron (limited drivability in India, considering the roads. If it does not move on roads so frequently, it will turn less heads for sure
The first one, Ford, is indeed eye catching.

Nissan GT-R.

Mostly because I don't give a damn about turning heads. I just want to go fast in a Japanese pocket rocket.

Many other qualifying vehicles occupy my fantasies, but the GT-R exists as the "Save money for this."

My choice would be the Koenigsegg CCX! Well this could be the most impractical car to have but just see the specs:4.7 liter V8 engine that churns out 806 bhp @ 6900 rpm with a top speed of over 250 mph(403kmh) and 0-62mph in 3.1 seconds! I'll have to shell out just around $650,000 for one.

My vote would go to Bugatti Veyron and Beetle from VW. These are sure head turners atleast in here. I also like Hummer H1.
