    Don't forget the RX..



    A lot of the "crossovers" look a lot better dropped, it brings out that big hatchback look. A good example Porsche Cayenne:

    Exclusivity: Ferrari owners in good standing may be entitled to the $2.5 million FXX model, which upon purchase you do not take physical ownership of, but are allowed to see and drive only on special track days held by Ferrari; the car is stored and maintained by the manufacturer otherwise.

    Well, the founder was such an obscene snob that he insulted one of his former customers to the point that Lamborghini came into existence. After receiving a bit of mild, constructive, criticism, he actually said to him that perhaps he wasn't good enough to drive a Ferrari.

    And what does "good standing" mean?? Those who have previously purchased a Ferrari and have meekly put up with the snobbery?

    Sure, pay $2,500,000 and not take possession of one's own property. Not even the founder of the company was that full of himself.

    The FXX is not street legal, so you can only drive it on a track anyway. That said, 800 HP in a car that weighs 2500 pounds is pretty ridiculous, and if you have the money to waste, it could be a neat thing to drive...

    If one can afford to pay 2.5 million dollars for a single vehicle, that person can easily afford to pay for track-time, a trailer to carry it, or even afford their own track.

    I'd love to pick up one of those when they come out, but I don't think my finances could handle TWO car payments, and I'm not selling the '07 I already have.

    Maybe after 10 years or so when I'm ready to replace my current ride (or, God forbid, if it's wrecked, blown up, or stolen!)

    Cars are lowered by people who have never seen a pothole.

    Super-thin tires...see above.

    Wheels that rub fenders or look like they do are bad.

    Nice caterham. I got to test drive one back in 2003. Very tight fit for me. I much prefer caterhams than Elise.

    Here is my all time favorite import car, my dad's '93 R1 FD3S RX7



    Tuned and maintained by Tripoint Engineering for more than a decade.

    Puts out 350hp to the wheels. it is one scary ride.

    Ultima GTR Recognized on October 7, 2008 by the World Records Academy as the world's fastest street-legal car.

    http://pic.pbsrc.com/spacer.gif

    Recently Ultima have focused their marketing efforts on record-breaking activities using a model equipped with a 640 bhp (477 kW) American Speed engine, which is called the Ultima GTR640, and subsequently, a 720 bhp (537 kW) engine which is called the GTR720. As a result, they have established the following official, independently verified records[3] for a production car equipped with road tires and exhaust:
    Fastest 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time: 2.6 seconds[3]
    Fastest 0-100 mph (160 km/h) time: 5.3 seconds[3]
    Fastest 30 mph (48 km/h)-70 mph (110 km/h) time: 1.8 seconds[3]
    Fastest 100 mph (160 km/h)- 0 mph time: 3.6 seconds[3]
    Fastest 0-100 mph (160 km/h)- 0 mph time: 9.4 seconds[3]
    Best performance on a skidpad: 1.176g lateral grip in a 200 ft (60 m) circle.
    Fastest road car over the 1/4 mile: 9.9 seconds @ 143 mph (230 km/h)
    Due to its curb weight of 990 kg (2,183 lb)[4], the power-to-weight ratio for the GTR720 is 727 hp (542 kW) per tonne, which is a better ratio than the Bugatti Veyron, Enzo Ferrari, Ascari A10, Koenigsegg CCX or CCGT (but less than the Koenigsegg CCXR), it's also lesser to the Caparo T1. However, the Ultima chassis is rated for engines up to 1,000 bhp (700 kW) and some of Ultima's customers have fitted engines producing 1,000 bhp (700 kW) or more[5], for a power-to-weight ratio of over 1,000 hp (746 kW) per ton

    One of my favourite cars is the VW Golf R32 which you can get with a twin turbo with 542hp from a German company .
