Porsche 917-30

Block #2

Second generation Corvette Stingray

Yenko Stinger Corvair

67 Hemi GTX

Block #3

Ferrari F40/F50

Ford GT40

Ferrari 330 P4
Except for the classics, I have only one other car I could say is a dream car: the Bentley Brooklands. Since they have stopped making them and I can only buy a used one, the prices may come down enough that I actually might someday be able to buy one.

Is this the Caddy 16 you mean as the practical car? I bet it would be a total hoot to drive that round every day to collect groceries, dry cleaning and whatnot.

1930 Cadillac V-16 Roadster

I'd go Ferrari 250 GTO for #1 and Porsche 918 #3. Struggling with #2 because I'm not clear on whether an "actually usable" DD exists in the >$200k. It is below the price ceiling but I think Tesla P85 package model S would be an awesome DD

EDIT:
Oh, it's the XLR I was thinking of. It's similar looking until you look at the two side by side.

I don't know that it has to have DD ability, but it has to be practical. For example, you and your wife could use it to go pick up two people at the airport and the car would have enough room for the four of you and your guests' luggage not to have to share seats. Or perhaps you and a couple friends could arrive back at the yacht club and take just one car to a local eatery to grab a snack.

TY for trying to play by the rules. Of course if a car you just really want to note isn't $200K+, nobody's going to slap your hand. The Tesla is a great choice.

Yes that is the 2003 concept/remake of the old Cadillac V-16 they made back in the 1930's. I thought it looked quite good in the movie 'Click' though. IIRC, I think it had cylinder deactivation, down to 4cyl, so it could yield something like ~16mpg even though weighting 5,000lbs and having 1000hp/1000tq


But I really just threw out that crazy concept out there because there are so many great sedans out there. Especially given the price point.

I wanted to say a Manual E60 M5 / E63 M6, but I didn't have want to have two BMW's on my list lol.

In the end for me, the McLaren F1 > any past, present, future car

That's the car where the driver sits in the middle and just forward a bit of two potential passengers, yes?

Yes the un-rivaled (performance, engineering, price, rarity)
Supercar of the 1990's. Closer to a hypercar in reality. It's still the fastest Naturally Aspirated production car even till this day. It'd give some supercars nowadays a run for their money with the right driver
In stock form, with it's BMW V12, it made 620hp* and tipped the scales at just ~2500 lbs.
Imagine what it could achieve if updated with current technologies, or forced induction.

There are few extremely rare 90's street-able homologations that were never really tested (figures estimated), that could probably take the Supercar Crown:

The Porsche GT1, Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR, Nissan R390, and the Toyota GT-One come to mind.
Oh and the Dauer 962 LM

You're consistent in your aesthetic tastes. Several of those cars look alike at 20 paces.

1958 Vette for me, White with red interior and red contrasting. Let's throw in a NRE supercharged engine for good measure too.

S65 AMG with a nice set of blingy wheels and a driver.

A Ferrari F40 and a phone call to Tony Vargas with a blank check. LOL
