    One of those for my garage as well - Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde (Cloverleaf).
    170bhp is about 15bhp up from the stock ~155bhp.
    And the normal 150 already feels so wonderfully chuckable. Add to that that they made away with most of those hideous little chrome accents and replaced them with matte metal pieces.
    Add to that cheaper running due to a new throttle plane, and acceleration in the Golf GTI and Focus ST area and you have one very lively and utterly loveable 1.4litre turbo.

    been thinking a long time about this.

    Dream super cars are ok, but i actually like the idea of enjoying the car to its ability, and my driving isn't good enough to handle those famous beasts safely.

    I like getting out and about, and i love volvo's so a Volvo 122S Amazon estate customized to look a little like this

    [​IMG]


    Except rather than having a stripped interior i would pull most the creature comforts out of a V70 and combine them with the old school dash. Also rather than the nutter Turbo engine in that car, i would go for a chipped Volvo D5 engine. Which is 212hp with 443Nm of torque on tap (diesel loving), up from a stock 183hp and 375Nm.

    All of that would combine to create a prefect daily drive, camping car and something when stamped on would shift.

    Something sleek for cruising around custom Volvo P1800 please,

    Shame there only renders of that P1800, but the chap who did that design of P1800 also did that 1st image, its a stunning car. Both of them!

    Those Bentley Continental coupes are very sexy indeed Johnny :naughty:
    Even the interior is full of beautifully sexy curves:
    [​IMG]
    It's like a sexy, curvy, tight big milf of a sports car.

    My dream car, which will be a reality in about 10 years or so:

    If running costs are still a nightmare by then however.. then i'd probably go the kit car route, as i'll be regularly taking the thing down to the track for racing and drifting, and all I care is that I have a car which goes well, and looks and sounds like that car :rock:

    And for the family car:
    [​IMG]
    but with these wheels:

    and the dash needs some modding & retrimming, bmw don't know how to make a nice dash.

    ditto. Absolutely gorgeous car. A more realistic dream car would be a Nissan GTR.

    Three Toyotas, a Porsche, a Chevy and a Dodge. :lol:

    @ The Bentley Continental, I think it's only British people that tend not to like them because of the whole soccer player thing. I think it's a beautiful car, I wish my mom bought a used one instead of her S550 :-[

    I have a strip ready 1987 Buick Grand National... but I'd like to one-day have a 1987 Buick GNX to match it.

    My absolute dream car is the Singer 911

    It might not be the fastest, the best handling, or the most efficient car.
    But my god it is by far the coolest and best looking car in here! And with 425 aircooled and naturally aspirated ponies, its not exactly a slouch!

    Had nothing to do with that, no need to start throwing personal insults again.

    Unlike sports/super cars, the X6 just isn't good at anything. That's what bugs me about it.

    lol you funny, never threw any personal insults at anyone, have not even implied that anyone is a tool.

    And yeah, the X6 is not good at anything!!! It does not even look good! It is total crap!

    Is there some reason you feel the need to dump on one of my dream cars kid?

    For me It has to be the Ferrari 458 Italia. Iconic car, Changes the game in its balance of Science and Technology with Design.

    My Dad has a 1983 Posche 911 SC Cabriolet which is a beautiful car, but simple and well engineered. It made me appreciate when something is really special.

    @mvagusta

    Given you're Australian, I can think of one reason you picked the X6. :D

    Nice one Bindi, bizarre few posts. Crack on with the motoring porn...

    The Lambo Reventon, looks based on the USAF's F-22 figher, apparently...If I had more money than sense I would collect cars, and if I really had that much money, this would be part of the collection...
