What's your favourite car currently in production?

17 posts in this topic

Among everything that's going on in the world, I need something that'll momentarily take me away from it all.

So - no budget limits, any vehicle, what's your favourite car currently in production and why?

I absolutely love this thing.  Real hints of the original 330SL Gullwing and a stonking 522bhp in the GT-S.  I keep seeing one locally in this colour and it shouts "look at me". Well, if you've got £112,000, then why the hell not.

Excellent choice sir, it'd be high on my list but not at the top.

 

For me, my tastes don't really include any supercars these days, things like Ferrari or Lamborghini just don't interest me, my inner teenage boy has long gone, whilst not exactly extravagant, I'll still not be able to afford one any time soon, but mine would be one of these -

Mine would be Competizione Red, with black leather (criminally, you can't spec tan leather, WTF Alfa?) or possibly Alfa Blu but I'd need to see it in the flesh, with dark teledial alloys.

 

I don't think there is a better looking car on the market, and it's finally an Alfa that is superb to drive, it's got more capability than I have that's for sure.

Well said Mr T, stunning car finally from AR again.

My tastes are simple too, as an alternative I offer you.......

Although I hasten to add I don't think they are still in production.

I don't think the VXR8 is on sale in the UK any more, I'm sure it's Holden version can still be had in the colonies though.

 

I'm a big fan of the VXR8 too and I don't usually like Vauxhalls, It's right up there on my list, I want to own another V8 and this is realistically what it will probably be given I won't entertain Audi, they are (I think) a bit of a bargain at the moment, I don't think they'll drop much lower in price either so I reckon it's the right time to buy.

That's the good thing about the VXR8 though - it's not really a Vauxhall, is it :)

I have fallen deeply madly in love with the new 720s. I am so excited it's unreal. Such a brilliant car. Anyone see it at Geneva ?

The new hardcore version of this is a lovely thing. The Geneva car was schmee green and to top it off matte... so vile... but in the right colour really special. £180k special not so sure however!

I love all of the above. 

I know it's a little flawed, but this QP GTS (Twin turbo V8) was bloody brilliant and exactly my kind of car;

I really, really liked this too (but in BRG, please);

Hmmm. LaF Aperta? Prob not, the one I covet most is probably a boring old 991 Turbo S.

Too many to choose!!!!

Anything from the Mulsanne or S8 or the Quattroporte from TDK's post!

I'll be back once I have chosen.  Maybe

I had a look at it at the show. Pretty sensational. Love how it's over double the price of the coupe when it was first released! Pagani know how to charge that's for sure

When it comes down to it, my answer is pretty much always going to be the same. It's red, it's got a V12 at the front and it comes from Maranello.

I've changed my mind.

I want an F12 Effing quick or whatever the new one is.

Garcon speaks sense.
