The car of my dreams is on order ... whenever they decide to make it for me!

Sarc.

Mine would have to be the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4

lp5404_fd_01_opt.jpg

It's got a 5.2l V10 kicking out 552bhp taking it to 62 in 3.7sec. Oh yeh, it costs £143k :o

Love this car. The noise it makes is insane. I had the pleasure of driving the previous Gallardo at a Everyman racing day and it was incredible. You've never experienced power like it. Amazing...

I've driven a few single seaters in my dim and distant past, but they had rev limiters fitted so only managed a similar speed (110 - 120mph). Still a thrill at the time though, especially being on a 'real' racing circuit.

If you've already driven at 110mph at the age of 16, God knows what you'll be doing in ten years time ... Formula One, by any chance? :D

LOL...funny you should say that mate. I followed a huuuuge Chevy into Tesco's this morn and it had to park in the "mother and toddler" spaces with the wide gaps so it would fit!!

He followed me out as well. He probably used 4 gallons of petrol just getting out the car park! ;)

Dream car? - Has to be the Dodge Viper (original '93 RT/10 version if I'm gonna be a total anorak)

Its not hugely expensive, but it is big, loud and about as practicle as a card board wellington.

8litre V10, 400BHP, side exit exhausts, no roof, no side or rear windows, plastic body and pure crude and rude American muscle.

Gotta love the sound of a V10 :D

Although it never ceases to amaze me how little power the americans can get from such a huge engine!!

Mitsubishi can get 400bhp from a 4-pot 2.0 litre :D

My dream car an Ariel Atom. The full turbocharged version will race anything away from the lights and win. Ok doesn't have the top end but who travels at 200mph. Oh and it's a fraction of the cost of a supercar at about £35k
