well just a something i was thinking about.

When i am rich i plan on owning 5 cars at a time.

they will be for 5 differant uses:
1. A supercar
2. Track car
3. A 4x4 for going off road
4. daily driver
5. a mad car

for me it would go like this:

1. As a supercar it would have to be the slr. I love its noise,its looks,its doors,its power i love everything about it.
2. As a track car i think it would have to be a 997 gt3 since thats what its made for.
3. A hummer H1 it was made for off roading and i love it.
4. As a daily driver i think i would have a porsche cayenne turbo s. I think it looks ok. Its not beautifl but its not ugly. I love its power,its interior,its engine and sound.
5. As a mad car i would have to go for a ariel atom since it really is the most crazy car you can buy.

so what about you?

5??? Two would do me - an Aston V8 Vantage would fulfill all my non-track day needs (rentals would suffice for the other odd occasion), and an Atom (supercharged of course) would be the track day toy.

Ah hell, make it three - an Audi RS4 for when I need to scare some friends...

Five cars, eh? Well, it'd probably be something like:


1) SLR McLaren -- A supercar you can live with, and fun for the tracks
2) BMW M5 -- this or the Audi RS4 for the same reasons as fbc
3) 1967 Camaro Z/28 -- something that I've always wanted, and it fills the muscle car need
4) Maseratti MC-12 -- is there any other reason better than to own an MC-12?
5) Volvo 740 GL -- my current car. I love it, and I'm going to see that it reaches a million miles before I let it go! (well, at least 500,000)

but if I do it the way carsightings sets it up:

1. A supercar -- SLR McLaren
2. Track car -- Corvette C5R
3. A 4x4 for going off road -- tough choice, either an H-1/M-998 or a Chevy 1500 rig.
4. daily driver -- M5/RS4
5. a mad car -- Caterham Super 7

Well
1)as a supercar it would have to be a Ferrari F40
2)track car : Radical SR8
3)4*4 well I'm not a big fan of the new ones therefore I would take an old Jeep willy
4)the daily car would be an Audi A6 diesel or the brand new MB S-class .
5)for the mad car I would have a custom made Triumph Tr3 :it means strenghthen the chassis, put in it the L6 (for the space) from the BMW m3 E46 and oh what the hell just add a turbocharged to it , and ceramic breaks just to slow it down a bit .

I'm going to take a cue from rjvracing and add a classic category, and merge the mad car and track car, as track cars do tend to be mad anyway.

So:
1. Supercar: Jaguar XJ220, just to be different.
2. Track/mad car: A V6 supercharged Toyota MR2, like this one
3. 4x4: Lamborghini LM002. What? :evil:
4. Daily: Audi RS6 Avant, debadged. Q-ship to the extreme.
5. Classic: Ferrari Dino 246. I'm obsessed.

If they had to be new cars: Arnage Limousine, DB9, Range Rover, Cooper S.
Otherwise: too many difficult choices.

Supercar : Aston Martin Vanquish S

Track car : Ariel Atom

4x4 : Land Rover Discovery III

Daily Driver : Maserati Quattroporte, mmm

Mad car : TVR Sagaris


But since in this daydream I'm rich, I'd also get a Ford S-Max with the Focus ST engine ripped out and replaced with a V6 [to scare 6 friends at once], and a soft top of some description; probably a Morgan 4-seater or the Aero 8.

edit - And I've just realised there's no Lotus Elise on that list, so I'll have one of them too.

Aww hell..

(1) Track car. Gotta have a super fast stripped down track car, you're right with the 911 GT3, I'd also throw an Elise and a caged Z06 into the mix. This would be for track only, too uncivilized for daily driving.

(2) A tow vehicle for (1), might be able to combine with (7). I'm thinking VW Toureg V10 diesel, Ford F350, something like that.

(3) Fast GT car. Something a little more comfortable than a pure sports can in a 1 hour drive.

(4) Fast sports car. A streetable proxy for (1), close cousins of the listed cars.

(5) Luxo-sport sedan -- for comfortable cruising/highway and taking more than 1 person somewhere but can still handle. I'm thinking in the mold of the M5.

(6) SUV for offroading. True offroading beats them up -- I'd take a Wrangler Rubicon, Toyota FJ, something like that.

(7) Luxo SUV -- Cayenne Turbo, et al.
