10 car dream garage

What would be in your dream garage and why?

1. Caparo T1



I just love the IDEA of this thing. It is the nearest thing I have seen to a true racer for road use.

2. Jaguar JP1



http://www.seriouswheels.com/cars/to...Jaguar-JP1.htm

I drove one of these at Bedford Autodrome on the Palmersport day and loved it to bits.

Check this out:

"AT EVO we take each car we feature to the Bedford Autodrome as part of our assessment process, and a lap time of 1m 9.8s makes the JP1 the fastest car I have driven around our test circuit. To put this figure in perspective, the lap time for a Ferrari 575M (with 508bhp) is 1m 24.5s"

3. Caterham Superlight R500 Evolution

Madder than Mad Jack McMad of the Clan McMad



4. Formula Palmer Audi



Again this is based on my palmersport experience. These things are utterly awesome. Bear in mind that this is significantly quicker than the JP1 - which is already a supercar destroyer.

5. Lamborghini Murcielago LP640



If this isn't on your list you are crazy.

6. Lotus Exige



I think the exige is about the most aggressive looking car I have ever seen. The top gear test with the military helicopter was inspired.

7. BMW M12 Nazca concept.

I was gutted that this was never put into production.



8. Mclaren F1 GTR



For those days when an ordinary F1 isn't quick enough

9. 1968 Corvette Stingray

I just always wanted one of these.



10. Koeniggseg CCR

Standing 1/4 mile in 9 seconds.



I'd love to fit in an Ferrari Enzo or Pagani Zonda as well, but I wouldn't be able to part with any of the others.

Oh .. and they would ALL have to be black metallic.

That's not true ... I think you can even get some bits of foam padding to shove down the back of the seat on the JP1.

I could swap the corvette for the Zonda, but I REALLY want the corvette.

I used to want one when I was a kid and always imagined driving round with the windows down while playing the music from the Gerry Anderson puppet show of the same name.



nb. I mean the one that goes stingray .... stingray dada da da da da

Not the tune that goes 'marina - aqua marina - what is the strange enchantment that falls whenever you are near .... that would be weird.

I am liking the countach and especially the TVR speed 12

That looks nasty .. especially in red.

But .. I'd still have black.

The countach in white just reminds me of miami vice
