If we're going for practicality here, then I'd have to say either the X5, or the Audi Allroad. If we're trying to balance practicality and fun, F10 M5 Wagon, or CTS-V Wagon, if we're going for full out fun, then maybe an 850CiS. Just to say I have one. Oh and maybe I'll throw a supercharger on it.

Only three of us here choose the F1....

So we can drive it together, switching afterwards.

Anyway, a crappy video of speedometer of the greatest car ever, by far:


And put your speakers on.

so only 1 person chose the Zonda R?!?!?! Fuck all the variables and if you are an automobile fanatic it is the Zonda R hands fucking down.

Disclaimer: Unless you chose the F1





Now what about only 1 motorcycle?

In the future, gas will be very expensive so decent mpg is a plus, since I want to actually continue driving and not just looking at the car in the garage and then taking the bus.

Comfort, performance, and looks would come next.

What are the options? RX350, Pilot, Venza, Crosstour, the minivans, Highlander, RDX, MDX, CRV, RAV4, FJ, Tundra, 4-runner.

All get crap mpg except the Venaz, CRV and RAV4. RAV4 has a lot more power without much sacrifice in mpg, so I suppose I'd pick a loaded RAV4 V6. If I didn't care about mpg, probably the MDX.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

i just like what it has to offer so far in terms of looks, power, and (cough) gas consumption... i'm sure it will turn out to be everything GT was and then some. the unknown is why i have the F1 on top still

This.
But if I had to pick. Half my heart tells me a Zonda because it is the embodiment of what a supercar is, and in a way is what Lamborghini used to be, crazy.
The other half of my heart says a Ferrari 250 GT California SWB, because it embodies what a classic Ferrari should be.

Another choice for me would be the Panamera Turbo S if it wasn't so ungodly ugly.
