    Do the planet a favour and take public transport instead of massaging your ego.

    Well where are you located at. I hear TVR's are illegal in the states because of there crash tests. The Ford GT is completely sold so you have to end up getting a used Ford GT. Do you really want a used 150 grand car?

    Anyways this is to vague of a question. What will you be doing, where will you be driving, how much driving will you be diong, what is the terrain that you will be driving in like, what type of style do you enjoy more (for example I love rear wheel drive torque monsters, the Z06 would probably be my choice if I didn't have a wad but had quite a bit of mulah. Some people love the 3 lbs cars that have pretty big engines).

    For some reason I can see you sitting in the back seat of a Crown Victoria, likely on a reality-type television show.

    Or whatever Ford the cops drive over there.

    :p

    You will quickly grow tired of all of those cars as a daily driver.

    I'm so glad Buick no longer has crap like that.

    Dodge Viper GTS-R - Nice car. Not worth the money though
    Ford GT - Pointless car that doesn't work
    Jaguar XJ-220 - Horrible looking, terrible reliablilty
    Aston Martin Project Vantage - Nice but the DBR9 is better
    TVR Speed 12 - You can't buy one. There's only about 4 in the world
    Nissan R390 GT-1 - Not very practical
    Lotus GT1 - Not very practical
    Toyota GT-One - Not very practical


    EDIT: It looks like you chose your list after playing Gran Turismo...

    actually the cops tend to drive SS Commodores here. They look damn nice, even with POLICE written all over them

    Just what I was thinking; It has to be the Toyota GT-One you can clean up in that thing, closley followed by the Nissan.

    If you want to drive one of those cars fast, and as a daily driver.

    Spending some money at Bondurant for driving courses should allow you to kill yourself safely.

    Ooops, I mean reduce the chances of you killing yourself. :p

    There is no such thing as a Aston Martin Project Vantage it is just called a V8 Vantage. Also The DBR9 is a race car built by Prodrive for AM. I think you mean the DB9 or DBS.

    BTW Production of the Ford GT was ended last year.

    Project Vantage turned into the Vanquish, not the V8 Vantage.
    Anyone can buy a DBR9. Yes it's race prepped, but you can still go to Prodrive and order one.

    I just said their is no such thing as a Project Vantage. I am not sure where the OP is getting his list from. Also the Vanquish was recently discontinued. I never said you cannot buy a DBR9, just that it is race car, which I think is not road legal. Like the F430 Challenge.

    There is such a thing as the Project Vantage. There's just one of them.:)

    It's a pointless argument anyway. The likelyhood of the OP being able to afford any of the cars listed is pretty remote.

    Hahahaha, you what? I forgot that buses run on fresh air, and that of course cars run on the tears of squirrels.

    Aston. :D

    Edit:

    Not fully true, you can't buy the DBR9, it's the DBRS9 you can buy. :) Close, but not the full fat version. Saying that, im sure you can buy the DBR9, but you know what im getting at. But The DBRS9 is actually road legal, whereas the DBR9 is not.

    I wasn't saying the DBR9 was road legal. But you can buy a DBR9 and use it on a track.
    The Viper GTS-R isn't road legal either, while we're at it.


    You could buy all of AM
