It does sound nasty, but i don't hear any similarity to an F1 car...those whine up 2,5 times higher than this thing.

Gotta have it in black though, the silver/black color scheme is a little too obnoxious imo.

Hey Dustwave - you're right about one thing. When I first saw the new M3 in pictures, I was like are you kidding me? What the hell did they do to it? Then... Over time... I started to appreciate its looks more and more, and now I think it's just hardcore. But heres why.... I saw one being test driven from a nearby BMW dealer; when you see it on the streets you are going to SH*T. It's sooo freakin gorgeous and sounds badass!! Come on, a V8 reving over 8,000RPM has to have some kind of impact on you =]


My fantasy cars:



BMW M6! I am an absolute sucker for this car. M5, M6, M3.... BMW ///M ftw!!!



Honda NSX-RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!




Aston Martin DBS - "That's not a race car, that's just pornography....." ~ Jeremy Clarkson

And my super duper dream car, if it ever happens:




GO JENSON!

I'm starting to appreciate the new M3 more and more aswell...but still those sideview mirrors are plain ugly to me...

Have you ever driven an M6? I have my doubts about that car...my father owns both an M6 and an M5. The M5 drives brilliantly, but the M6 just feels wrong. Something's not right, like the wheels aren't alligned correctly or something. He got the whole car checked out several times, but each time they said it's in perfect condition, yet it feels as if there's something wrong. According to the dealer it feels just the way it's supposed to feel. If that's the case it's a black page in M's history. It looks great, but the driving doesn't feel right.

Talking can I get that link in loooooooooooong ?

no they're not (or you mean the one you pictured??), THE Hummer is a military vehicle, the name licensed to GM for a "civil" version, underneath that "Hummer" package (picture on the site of your "tiny URL") is a bog standard Chevrolet chassis.

...and they bend, most stretch limo rentals have them on axle stands when not in use.

Quote:
The new H2 uses the chassis of GM's Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon wagons for a foundation, with multiple mechanical components including a humongous 6.0-liter V8 engine, borrowed from full-size Chevrolet-GMC trucks.

There's no Koenigsegg with an official topspeed of over 395, although some have claimed to have driven it up to 407 kmh. And then there is the SSC Ultimate Aero TT with 411kmh. And then there's the Bugatti Veyron Pur Sang, probably the fastest of them all. There's no official topspeed for it, but compare it with the normal Veyron, do the maths, and you'll realise it's even faster. There are several more cars that are faster than the Koenigsegg.

Though IMO The Koenigsegg is higher up the list than the Ultimate Aero TT, as that one is a completly bare and butt ugly machine race machine, just barely road legal. Whereas the Koenigsegg is a relatively luxurious car. Though again not quite as luxurious as the Veyron.

Talking So there are other's out there who have the Diablo SE30 as their favourite!

Hey, glad to see there's other fans of the Diablo SE30 out there, however, there's one step more beautiful than the SE30 (well only just a bit)...



The Lamborghini Diablo SE30 Jota

Only 12 - 27 of the SE30s were ever converted into Jotas, 28 Jota kits were made but one was never installed. I think Lamborghini-made Jotas were 6-speed as opposed to the 5-speed SE30s and the upgraded SE30s into Jota specifications. Either way it's a beutiful car (the most beautiful I think) and those added twin air scoops give it the added touch that the SE30 didn't have...

...I hope to get one of these someday, a left-hand-drive one with a blue leather alcantara interior; I need something nice to keep me going until then though...



The 1989 Pontiac Trans-AM Firebird GTA 5.7L

This for me is the ultimate muscle car, looks nice, sounds nicer - uses fuel like plane probably but who cares (except for the green party )! The best thing is that these are pretty cheap at the moment for what they are - and I really hope they are in two to three years time when I'll hopefully eventually have enough money to get one (so don't you all go out and buy one before then because owner might start selling them for more thinking that they're collectable! )...
