And odd as it may seem, if all of those were parked there, I would get in the Ford GT. The F40 is damn tempting though.

It?s funny how the 8C, even in that exclusive company, still is the prettiest car there ... IMO of course. Feel free to disagree ...

On the topic wich one of those I?d have ... I?d take the 730hp RS6, thank you :D

Speaking of the RS6 ... I love that it can do 340km/h ... but the speedometer only goes up to 320 :lol: And D-Fence is right ... the guy doing the review sucks. Big time.

^ That's cos the 8C was built pretty, the F40 is a racing car, the GT40 is based on a racing car and the CGT is function over form and looks good but not 'pretty'

The first person to notice the unusual bit in this car gets a +rep :)

What, apart from the gigantic turbo on the straight-six engine and the battery behind the heat shield?

Don't know about unusual but the fact that it's a diesel ?

Or do you mean the seats, which look very much like the ones you find in a Sierra/Escort Cosworth.

Bingo, I knew no foreigner would be instantly able to notice this, since us Finns are really the only people who modify Merc diesels like this. Fantastic build imo, the latest engine in that car is pushing 600hp :mrgreen:

Heheh, that was the first thing that popped to my mind when I saw the picture, but I guess as a Finn didn't think it was that strange, a highly modified diesel Merc. That's one oilburner I'd gladly drive.

Now where's my god damn +rep ? :mrgreen:

Well damn me for being late! First thing I noticed was it being a diesel.

The hard fuel lines going directly to the intake manifold give it away.
