This. No modern knockoffs to spoil the legacy please.

Who said anything about modern knock-offs? I thought this was about putting the original car back into production, exactly how it was when production stopped.

I agree with the McLaren F1... central driving position FTW.

Ferrari F40 and Jag XJ220 with originally intended engine also are excellent choices. All of which are beautiful cars, sound, and go awesome...

Anyone drive the Jag in the game Test Drive Unlimited... man that thing is soooo fun full throttle! Love the sound and it moves!!

Because some people can't afford an old one or rather can't give up creature comforts. Besides, supercars are on the verge of downfall due to the eco-mentalist. (Reminds me of Top Gear, the last episode of Season 13).

Wait that doesn't make sense, if people use 'inability to afford older supercars' as a reason for bringing it back as a new model, what makes you think they can afford the new version?

And if it comes out as a new version, then of course it will be built to current specs and subject to 'eco mentalist' laws as you put it, so it'll be worse than the original.

Just buy a classic.

It's not supercar as such but I'd really like too see BMW revive the 8-series.

It's amazing that the 928 was introduced in the '70s and still looks more modern and fresh than pretty much the entire current Porsche range.

That Lamborghini Cala is one stylish car of that time, it still puzzles me as to why they didn't put it into production. Probably because Lambo thinks the Cala is too smooth, not like the Countach, Diablo, Gallardo, Murcielago, all just shouting "I'm sharp and edgy".

Well no, it would have went into production, if Megatech (who owned Lamborghini back then) wouldnt have sold the company to Volkswagen, Ferdinand Piech and his henchmen went to italy and said "nein nein nein, gef?llt mir nicht, macht den nochmal von vorne", or shortly, he just didnt liked it.

So they dropped the perfectly ready for production engineerd Cala into the Bin (Millions of engineering costs throw'n away) and started from new and came up with the Murcielago and the Gallardo, engineerd majorly by Audi. ( :D )

Thanks for the info AudiV6! Never been a fan of Murcielago but the Gallardo is fantastic.
