    Stumbled over a little something in the used car dealership today. It had 17 000 kilometers on the odometer and a cheap price tag. Overhauled the engine and restored the body before I took it for a spin around Nordschleife in one of the track day lobbies and ended up doing 10 laps. Such an amazing machine!

    I'm talking about the Peugeot 106 S16 '03. Just brilliant!

    My favorite car is the '08 viper. Great sounding, great speed and great handling couldn't ask for more in a car.

    Stealth Mazda 787B
    '07 EVO X
    Stealth Nissan GT-R GT500

    I quite like the 1994 TVR Griffith 500, 1966 Shelby Cobra 427, and the 2004 Chevrolet Corvette C5 Z06.

    For 625+PP I adore my Stealth GT-R GT500, not only does it have the great quirks the Stealth cars give but I think it's one of the nicest sounding cars to race with. The tune I use from these forums with it, has given it such great balance that I only have the ABS set to 1 as all the other driving aids are just not required.

    When it comes to LMP cars I love to drive the Mercedes GTR. I think it's such a cool looking car and even though it's not as fast or popular as it's fierce rival the Toyota GT-One (another LMP car I adore) I still love to drive it and I find it's more forgiving than most of the other LMP cars (Only the Audi R8 is more noob friendly to drive IMO).

    Recently I've started racing at the 500PP level and I've been using the Subaru BRZ, with the AMG Matt Black/Silver paint and white Ray Volks 6 spoke wheels. I think it looks the nuts and again just has great balance. At this PP that car is producing about the same bhp my Impreza P1 does (around 330bhp) and feels so much like my Impreza, even though it's a RWD and the Impreza is a 60/40 rear bias AWD car! The other car I love to drive at this PP level is the Spoon S2000 Race Car, again I love the look of the car and it's just so silky smooth with the power delivery and my god it's one of the best balanced cars in the game.

    At the 550 area, I have really struggled to find a car that beats the NSX Type-R 02. The car has the same traits as the other cars I have listed, as in it has such brilliant balance and really gives me confidence to push in the car. I have mine to look like Keiichi Tsuchiya's :)

    Finally a recent discovery for me was the Amuse Carbon R R34. At top PP it's a fraction under 600pp but the thing is so crazy fast and it really looks menacing. Like the BRZ I have the Rays Volks 6 spoke wheels in white.

    Its cool because its rare, I have a few of these.

    Unfortunately it doesnt handle anywhere NEAR as good as the '02. Which I consider a cheater-car for its PP. It definitely has secret downforce or something ...

    Its a shame

    Oh god so many cool cars to choose from. If I could only have one? Probably my 800+hp Chevelle SS '70. Amazing for drifting and not bad for racing. A bit of a boat however. A good challenge for sure.

    Otherwise gotta love the R35 TC, FR-S, Corvette Grand Sport, Z28 RM, Audi TT-R Touring Car, Charger Super Bee, and the classic ZZII. The classic race cars are a hoot to drive as well.

    As for everyone going on about the Lamborghini's and Vipers, I personally think you are all crazy. Even with a good tune these cars just never felt right to be. Also unless it's a classic Viper or Miura I think most of them are ugly too. Let the flame war begin!!! ;)

    I'll admit the '08 viper is not a classic (yet) but even in real life it has great track times. It was faster (and a lot cheaper) than the Ferrari 458 in Car & Driver's lightning lap time trial.

    Maybe if the track was just a straight line, and if the Viper was the ACR.

    The viper has a, what? 8.3L Engine? And the Ferrari has a 4.6L engine, yet despite that their power levels are very similar.

    I agree with you man! But I gave my Lamborghini a polarized paint (grey and red), and it is down right sexy. Trust me, it's the best suited paint on a Lambo other than a nice pearl white (my preferred stock color option and my opinion). :D

    Of course, the E46 BMWs! The CSL and M3 GTR... my M3 GTR had Laguna Seca Blau as a color (i believe that is the right name), and my CSL sported a white pearlescent color.

    Besides those, the Gallardo finished in a beautiful Matte gray and the Mercedes SL600 :)

    Mines the Nissan GT-R N24 Schulze Motorsport '11. I think the car handles great around the corners and has a pretty good top speed.

    Beginning to absolutely adore the Mazda RX7 TC. Stock I managed a 6:30 on Nordschleife on RH tires. Excellent handling and boasts a great top speed as well.

    The '07 BMW M3. Love that car, as it is one of my favorite cars in real life. The Maserati GranTurismo S and Aston Martin DB9 are two of my other favorites.

    The Jaguar XJ13. I have one in Sterling Silver and on Sports Hards it is simply spiffing to cruise, but also jolly well fast enough to knock the socks off any chap silly enough to duel me in the ridiculous jalopy that they call a car. Long live Britannia, chums!

    Definitely the Pagani Zonda R. I have one in Pagani Silver ( I made that up, but you'll get it ;) )
