    Donkervoort D8

  2. Kyle Eby says:

    Focus ST. I test drove a 2012 and it was an absolute blast! Real quick but still very daily drivable and more or less practical.

  3. Whiteplague says:

    Lotus Evora S. I <i>will</i> have one.

  4. I must say the new BMW M4s and Audi RS5s would be on my top list if I wanted to buy a new car and had the money. I also like the 2015 GTRs as well as the Focus STs.

  5. Gopher Yusef says:

    I'd have a hard choice between  Porsche 911 Carrera and a Corvette C7. Great performance under $80,000. Still a good amount of money but a bargain for driving pleasure. 

  6. The Ford Fiesta ST. I like this car so much I bought one even after test driving the Ford Focus ST. It's smaller and more fun in the twisties and on the track. Traffic is more fun also…lol

  7. reazy1515 says:

    The new turbo m3/4 swweeet and the 3 is practical fun and decent on gas

  8. Janusha says:

    The only way to go for future classics is Zonda, LaFerrari, Mclaren P1, some Aston Martins and certainly Bugatti. 

  9. Diary Dom says:

    Just ordered a Mountune Fiesta ST. Not very expensive but so much fun.

  10. Joshua says:

    2014 Subaru forester XT, 3.6R limited Subaru outback, 2015 WRX STI, ford fiesta ST

  11. David S. says:

    Cadillac CTS V-Sport

  12. Just Drive says:

    The 2014 F-Type R coupe. Already drove the V6S converti, it was perfect.

  13. Zak Hill says:

    Fiesta ST or VW Scirocco (R)

  14. J _38 says:

    I'd take a Mazdaspeed 3 over a Focus ST. It's cheaper to buy, has more power to begin with and actually has a mechanical LSD unlike the gimmicky electronic open diff in the ST.

    Just want to say no new BMWs unfortunately. Frs turbo or biturbo ? Looking forward to next v cars and isf

  16. well I would have to say the Equus Bass 770, you have all the styling of the old muscle cars 60`s and 70`s, and all the new age pony cars I love today as well, all mixed in with a supercharged 640bhp 0-60 in 3.4s monster

  17. A 1M; if I could get ahold of a new one.

  18. audi rs6 MTM

  19. BMW 1-Series M Coupe

  20. Most of the new cars have too much plastic to suite me.  The heat cycles on todays cars make all the plastic too brittle.  There are a lot of cars that I would like to drive, but I would prefer a late 60's Chevelle with a modern drivetrain and suspension tweeks.  Having said that, I would consider the new Caddy CTS and XLs, the new Impala and Cheverolet SS, the 2015 Mustang when it gets here, the Taurus looks nice as well.  I like the looks of the Challenger, the Chrysler 300 and a lot of the high end German makes,  S class, 7 series, Audi 8's, etc.  But all being said, I would have to say if I had an unlimited budget, and it didn't have to be my only ride, I would have to go with the top tech of the Tesla S.

    I'd say Stingray with the Z51 package. The only Japanese cars I would want aren't "new". 

  22. herpes dick

  23. viperz888 says:

    these presenters are shit
    where is chris harris

  24. I for one would stick to get a V12 Vantage, got the chance to drive one and without doubt would love to own one.

  25. BMW M550d Touring. All the car you'll need (with a towbar, trailer and 996.2 GT3 RS, ofcourse).

  26. Idk why, but the new Dodge Dart has been in my head since the debut

  27. ReLoad says:

    I kno this is stepping in towards super car territory but….Lotus Evora.

  28. Famed Games says:

    The koenigsegg one:1

  29. RaceProtocol says:

    Audi RS4 Avant
    Best car to keep you, your wife happy and your kids happy.

  30. civoreb says:

    2013-14 Audi S6……0-60 in 3.7 secs…enough said, I am sold.

  31. dt0818 says:

    The new S63 AMG, because it's the supposedly going to be the last car with the M157 5.5L Biturbo engine. Plus, it has all the newest tech Mercedes has thought of. If money is no object, why not get the "best car in the world".

  32. IgnaOxum says:

    OH MY GOD, LOOK A THE LEFT GUY'S FEET!!!!!

  33. Citroën C5 Tourer, with the 240hp diesel, automatic and the hydropneumatic suspension. Best long-distance car ever made. I don't want a race car for the street, I want comfort.

  34. Every BMW that has an M in it, i prefer the M3.

  35. LoveMyZJ says:

    Subaru BRZ, new Mazda 6 wagon.

  36. 2013 silverado 2500 diesel ltz
