I'd take any manual E46 M3, spray it Technoviolet, and call it a day.

Let's all name our dream cars now in this thread.

There are some technoviolet e46 m3s in existence.

I always wanted a Dodge Viper too, and my favorite classic car as a kid was probably a 1970 or 71 Plymouth Barracuda.

During the same college period, a good family friend had a silver 993 turbo, exactly like the one below, as part of a serious collection. While out to dinner one night, I joked how it would be amazing to drive the car home, he flipped me the valet ticket and said "make sure you take the long way". Fun car to drive.

My dream car "now" is quiet different.

my dream garage via internet:

 

Singer Porsche, pops always wanted an older one and these are stupid expensive but execution is unreal.

 

C6 RS6 Avant: grew up with a girl whose father worked for Audi so I always had an eye on their S/RS offerings

 

I know I'd need a bigger rig of some sort but I'd probably just ask Piob what he's eying

My list of dream cars is long...

in HS I wanted a 944 Turbo S as somewhat attainable dream car... Also wanted several Ferraris (308,328, F40. 355)

The Mrs would like one of these ...she likes the old impact bumper 911s.

Modern dream car for me the new 911R

But I'll settle for a 488GTB or Spider

If going classic since BMW just celebrated 100 years I'd go with a classic e9 BMW 3.0SCi or CSL

For something British....

But for something more attainable...

This version of the F1 for me. If I were a billionaire, I don't think I'd ever buy a yacht or such. The LM though and one of the very few cars that can pull off the color: inlove.gif

For Le Mans cars, gotta be the quad rotor Mazda 787B that won in '91.

I know people are going to scoff but for my dream daily driver? AMG GL63 or the Cayenne Turbo S.

That sounds like a good reason to marry her, all by itself. biggrin.gif

I still smile every time I walk up to my E46 in a parking lot from a distance. I love the way it looks, even 12 years after getting it.

Probably the best daily driver of all those mentioned. Exotic cars are a pain in the ass to DD

Those actually sound like great one-cars. I've driven the non AMG/Turbo version of both and loved them. I imagine the funner versions are...funner.

I was working under fantasy mode, PITA second or third car logic.

Pshh.

If I am going to have a dream car, I am also going to have a dream maintenance and stupid behavior budget (and a surgical budget so I can keep those hip replacements in check if I can't get into the car anymore).

Tow your boat with a 944


Take the lambo skiing


Take the 911 to the trails


Going for an extended stay? Hook the camper to the back of the ferrari

Thanks to Froggy, every time I see a e46 with zhp package I mumble under my breath "Dat zhp!" and then start laughing to myself.
