Exclamation which one of these super cars do u prefer??

always had this question on my mind, how many prefer the Enzo, the carrera GT or the SLR?? and why???

i like the 3 cars, but i can easily exclude the SLR, dont know why but i like the other 2 much more...

the hard choice was between the Enzo and the carrera GT, i like those 2 cars alooot, un-believable power and engineering

but in the end, i went with the Enzo, i heard it doesnt have roll-down windows (always shut) and doesnt have stereo, i dont know if that's correct, but even if it is, still, i like it more, its a Ferrari!!!

so now E90post members, which do u prefer?? and why ??

You need more options on your poll!

My choices would be different.....

Top Speed: I would say Buggatti Veyron or Koenigsegg CCX!

Otherwise: Saleen S7-TT or Mclaren F1!

From your list I think the Porsche has the looks but the Enzo performs a little better. However for a daily driver, the SLR would probably be the better of the three. You can't go wrong with any of them really.

tough choice...if I had to choose I would go with Carrera GT. I think it's a lil more classy. The reason I dont wanna go with Enzo is bcus it's like pure sports car. I need some luxury in there.

599 GTB, but if it had to be one of the above then the Carrera GT.

It's all a bit hypothetical because I have never driven those cars - and probably never will.

But ..... I wouldn't have either of the three in the poll.

For road use I would get a Jaguar JP1 - I have driven the track version twice now and I know it laps the west circuit at Bedford in the UK faster than the Carrera GT:



Engine: V6, 2968cc, 24v
Max power: 280bhp @ 7200rpm
Max torque: 230lb ft @ 5000rpm
0 - 60mph: 3.8sec (claimed)
Top Speed: 170mph (claimed)
Price: £51,500

For track days - it can only be the Caparo T1:



Maximum Speed: >322kmh (200mph)
(Low downforce setup)
0-160-km/h (0-100mph): <5 seconds
0-96km/h (0-60mph): <2.5 seconds
(depending on tyre setup)
Lateral acceleration: Up to 3g+
Braking deceleration: Up to 3g+

None of the above.

My top 3 (excluding homologation specials):

1. McLaren F1 (everything from the extraordinary men and story behind it to the glorious road and racing achievements is stuff of legend)
2. Ferrari F40 (had Ferrari controlled the production number a little bit, you'd be paying over 1m for one today instead of a quarter mil)
3. Dauer 962 (the forgotten mother of all supercars: 0-62mph in 2.6s and officially clocked at 252mph, 13 years ago. And it's road legal & friendly)

I think it helps that the Porsche is beautiful as well as immensely capable.
