I guess mine would be the Ferrari 250 GT SWB or the Ferrari 250 GTE

Here they are:

I had a real tough time deciding between three cars that I had on my mind.
Many of you may be shocked, but the aircooled Porsche 911 was one of them. The Jaguar E-Type was another.
In the end I decided on a car that made me lose my sleep because I didn't have it - the Jaguar XJS V12 convertible.

Hey aditya, there are a few [or 2] XJS V12 in bombay. I've seen 2 of them. A black [or gray i dont remember] and a red one. Seen the red one last Sunday. Looked superb but wasnt very well maintained.

Hey V12,
I've seen just 3 XJSs in Mumbai...

Black - parked in the Opera House compound
Light blue - crept up on me opposite Siddhivinayak temple and leapt out of sight in no time
Metallic blue - 2 sikh guys were absolutely ripping it on W.E. Highway thrashing everything in their path.

This car is a superb high speed tourer and I'd love to own one someday.

well it would be rather difficult to choose between a Ferrari 250 GTO and a McLaren F1. but then my brain ruled over my heart, and i pick the McLaren F1. unbeaten after so many years in the supercar stakes,and what a no-holds barred purist concept. much cheaper than a 250 gto too.
