    This is mine...I'd really like to get some pro shots done one day, especially some rolling shots (for as much $$$ I have in this thing, all worth it).

    Did you find that picture by chance or do you have a connection to the TU Müchen FSAE Team? I'm asking because I'm a member of the TU Darmstadt Racing Team since this little beauty:

    Found it by chance, it was the first time I'd seen an FSAE car or heard of the series. It looks interesting though, it could be fun to watch a field of novice racers try to control the snap oversteer that short a wheelbase could generate..

    Yes, the short wheelbase results in a very "active" car. But to have a chance of winning you have to keep the wheelbase short because of the very narrow and twisty course. You have about 3 meters in width and a maximum of 60 meters straight.
    With a "normal" car you aren't be able to get around the track without backing off, I've tried.

    That's my favorite generation of Impreza/WRX/STi as well.

    There's a good chance my next car will be a '06 or '07 WRX wagon.

    McLaren F1 was always my fantasy sportscar, I hear they are coming out with some new street legal supercars later this year, or possibly 2011. Designed by a racing team to be a street legal racecar with no holds barred and money not an issue. Although it was made to be driven legally by anyone the McLaren F1 set new racetrack speed records.

    Yeah, I'd love that in a hatchback (minus the leather).

    Current daily-driver: de-badged, de-stickered, de-winged Integra Type R.

    I'm long beyond the "Look at me!" phase. I want the car to go very fast and unnoticed.

    SSC Aero - 1287hp driving only the rear wheels. It's like a pair of Corvette ZR1s (and as ridiculously impossible to drive)



    Gumpert Apollo, so fast they won't see the ugly



    Radical SR8, current world record holder for street-legal car around the Nuremburgring; about the size of a large amusement park go-kart, with 380hp pushing only 1400lbs (a current Mazda Miata is more than a half ton heavier)



    These cars and eight others are in the new Forza 3 "Exotic cars" downloadable pack - if you haven't tried it yet, even if you're not really a video game fan, I still highly recommend this very-near car simulator. There's over 400 cars included (nearly all the stock/manufacturer cars that appear in this thread, including the Veyron, McLaren F1, Shelby Cobra, etc), and a couple dozen real-world tracks that are very accurately reproduced..

    See it here: http://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/default.htm

    I've always liked the Lamborghini and the new ones are pretty cool. It's too bad they cost so much.

    The Embolado is a student-designed concept and not actually from Lamborghini. But the upcoming hybrid Lambo will look something like this Audi-Lambo joint venture design, called the Madura:

    It looks fast, I'm sure it cost much more than I would ever want to spend on a car though.
