Money no object, what car?
Always loved a big Healey, but Stoner’s dad has got there first tonight. I’d have mine in ice blue over OE white though. So if I had to choose another:
Isn’t McM’s a Bugatti, would love one for the style, or a big Hispano-Suiza. If I had to go Yank, either a Cord or a Delahaye. One car is as daft as one bike.
Edit: cross posting with McM, it’s a big BentleyPosted 4 years ago
Damn, just one? If it had to be one car, it would have to have practicality as well as being quick, and the new Range Rover Sport pretty much ticks all the boxes.
If not, then the Sport, that MAN expedition truck for jaunts abroad, and maybe that Mono single-seater that Top Gear had round their track for shits and giggles. 😀
I might be tempted by this, the Audi Nanuk:
5.0ltr V10 diesel, 540bhp, and 1000Nm of torques.Posted 4 years ago
The Alfa 8C above is certainly damn sexy, and I could quite covet one of those, too. Beautiful car ‘in the flesh’, as it were, too.
Of course, if money was truly no object, then this little beauty:
The plate alone would probably fetch the price of a decent house, but after owning the car for forty years, I’m sure it’s current owner would be very reluctant to part with the car. Difficult to imagine what it would fetch, really, with its history; a similar one, in metallic green, built for, but never driven by, Sir Stirling Moss, and never placing at Le Mans, went for $35 million, apparently.Posted 4 years ago
It’s owner also has an 8C, too. As well as the yellow racing Daytona behind…epicycloSubscriber
I was going to say a Morris Minor Estate on Jag running gear, but CFH has found the car I need
only I want it as a kit and with one of those nice supercharged boxer 2 stroke truck motors…
Oh, and in BRG until next Sept, at which point it would be painted Ecurie Ecosse blue…Posted 4 years agobigyinnMember
Couldn’t narrow it down to just one.Posted 4 years ago
I’d have a Lexus LFA for the sound
A Jaguar XJ220 for the looks
A Bugatti Veyron Super Sport for the speed
An Aston Martin Rapide custom built estate for practicality
A Ford Sierra Mk1 XR4i (not 4×4) just because I could
Probably loads more, but that’ll do for now.PiefaceMember
It would be my ’96 Seat Ibiza with a couple of mis-matched panels, rusty wheel arches, plastic hub caps etc.
Underneath the bonnet I’d shoe-horn the biggest engine I could find, with the biggest turbo i could find, with the biggest NOX injectors I could find, uprate the brakes and suspension to the extent that it would give anything else on the road a run for its money.
Or a Citroen C4 PicassoPosted 4 years agobenjiSubscriber
Having had the priviledge of driving numerous Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Aston Martins and Maseratis in the name of work, wouldn’t want any of them, so impractical and the amount of looking at from people, not to mention the constatnt camera phones, they just aren’t my bag.
So it would have to be a derestricted M5 touring, very capable and space to move a bike or two.Posted 4 years agojohndohMember

Essel – not quite the RS6, but I got my new car today – a 3.0 tdi V6 s-Tronic S-Line Black edition A6 about 4 hours ago
Did you pay cash for it? Cos if you didn’t, I’m not even slightly impressed. & if It’s a company/lease car then I’m even less impressed.

It’s leased. I am relieved I wasn’t trying to impress you, I’m just excited.Posted 4 years ago
