Cool The Last Automobile You'll Ever Own.


Congratulations, you've won a prize!

You have been given a nice garage, a team of virtuoso mechanics, and a magic credit card that amazingly only works for the purchases of trailer/flatbed service, oil, petrol, spares, and tires. Who knows where the bill goes, but it certainly doesn't go to you. Somehow, your local and national tax collection agencies never notice.

You are also given one vehicle, of your choice, of any value. There are only two catches:
  1. It needs to have 2 or 4 wheels.
  2. It will be the only vehicle of any kind you're permitted to operate for the rest of its (or your) mechanical life.

So - what winds up in your garage?

Hmm, so no daily driver car? I'd imagine trying to drive a low-rise sports car throughout the hilly terrain around here to be annoying as frack, not to mention the potholes!

I do like the look of the Lexus LFA though...

Dang, so does that mean I can't pull a Magrider?

I would not be opposed to driving around in a DeLorean. Something about the steel construction makes me feel safer on the road with a bunch of crazies Not to mention I'd be driving 88mph almost everywhere with a watch in the car set to the time and day of when I want to be haha

The same car I already in it...

Yea yea, you would think oh why not go for a 2 door sports car? impractical and unsafe for everyday use. This has more power and torque to match most V8 2 doors in acceleration, but on a large car chassis.



For you Americans wondering, its a Ford FPV F6. Though maybe i might upgrade it to an F6E.

I've always wondered why Ford releases its nicest models overseas. Australia, man, how does it even work?

Still working on my answer. I love my S5, but she wouldn't be my one true garage queen.

I've already got my Magnum, 5.7 liter HEMI with about 350 HP and 400 lb/ft of torque going to always-active AWD. It's one badass station wagon.

But honestly, I haven't been keeping up on car news to say what I'd buy.

Probably a Nissan GT-R.

First off, that is beautiful.

Anyway, maybe the new four door Aston Martin, or an Evo.

Yea right? What is this all about. An American company pumping out sweet rides in another country.. doesn't make sense.

OK, I'm decided. RS6 Avant. Withholding judgement on the 2010 vs. 2013 until I see if the new V8 holds a candle to the old V10.

Ferrari


My phone background, computer background, wall next to my bed in my room, and iPad background....are all Ferrari Scaglietti's.

It would be a light blue color, with pitch black rims, and an extremely dark tint.

The interior would be black leather with 6" stripes with white stitches down the sides. The shift stick would contain a small LED rope light around it, like a halo, and the lights would be purple. The headlights would be LED, and tail lights would flash as the newer mustangs can be outfitted to do (I can't think of which do it).

I wouldn't speed in it either. I just love that car

Gimme those modular hydrogen-cell cars that were in development, where the cab can be dropped on different chassis as-desired. Then I have any car I want at any time, just switch out the cab or the chassis.

Or better yet, just make a kickass somewhat-personalized public transportation system that gets people within 2 blocks of 90% of the housing, commercial, and industrial buildings all across the nation. Make it free, too. I'd just do that, I freaking hate traffic.

Theres talk of them discontinuing the falcon here and it been replaced with one of the american models like the Taurus or one of your other large car platforms.

V6 twin turbo AWD or something i think they were talking about at one stage, does sound pretty cool, even if AWD is alittle homo.
