Asked by ucme (45991points) November 10th, 2010

Basically your dream ride. Maybe you already own the thing, I dunno. For those who don’t, go on fantasise a little. I wouldn’t mind this in my xmas stocking. Dream on sucker.

I would love to have a new Nissan Maxima. I love the way they handle.

If money were no object I wouldn’t drive anything. I’d be driven.

wundayatta's avatar

This is the one I’m going for!

Maserati

crisw's avatar

Possibly a Mitsubishi iMIEV.

If money were no object then I’d live on a boat and forget about asphalt forever.

Mikewlf337's avatar

A brand new Ford F350 or a Dodge Ram with a deisel engine and 4 wheel drive. I can use it for hunting, fishing, and other hobbies I have that require a truck. Since money isn’t an issue I would also get Custom made Chopper (motorcycle), One of the first models Hummers because the have a riveted body, and a Dodge Charger from the Dukes of Hazzard.

Like @RealEyesRealizeRealLies, I’d choose to have car service. In the garage though, I’d be very thrilled with a Maserati Quattroporte.

CMaz's avatar

I second @CyanoticWasp . Works for me.

But, if had to choose car? Bugatti Veyron

perg's avatar

Am I restricted to one car? Because I’d keep my Prius for daily driving around, but I’d also have a truck, a convertible, a Harley, and a Jeep. Possibly also some kind of luxury car that the chauffeur would drive.

ucme's avatar

@Seaofclouds Nice, I could be tempted by the Exige if my arm was twisted :¬)

ucme's avatar

@syphotoguy Yeah, not bad, although. I got that beat!

bhec10's avatar

@syphotoguy The picture you posted is the Koenigsegg CCX, this is the McLaren F1

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

Rinspeed Amphibian for you land sharks out there. But any old amphibian would suit me fine.

bhec10's avatar

I’d either chose the new Mercedes-Benz 6.3 SLS AMG or the new Ferrari 458 Italia.

aprilsimnel's avatar

A 1960 Triumph TR3A and an 1965 Aston Martin DB5.

ucme's avatar

@bvdshec17 Yeah that Ferrari is truly “car porn.” I’ve almst got a semi just drooling…..looking at it.

bhec10's avatar

@RealEyesRealizeRealLies Would you like to be driven in a Maybach 62 like this one?

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

Well if money were truly no object @bvdshec17, I’d have Cadillac put The Sixteen into production and be driven from there.

Aston Martin

mrentropy's avatar

This is tough for me, especially if it’s limited to one.

If I went classic it might be a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO. Or maybe a Lamborghini Countach, despite it’s unfriendly nature. Or, better, a Lamborghini Miura.

Bugatti Veyron or McLaren F1? Maybe a McLaren-Mercedes SLR? Murcielago?

Maybe I should be a bit more sophisticated with an Aston Martin or Maserati?

I do like the “steampunk” look of the Spyker C8 Aileron though.

On the other hand, not very many people remember the Vector W8.

And that’s only part of the list. I’d have a really hard time deciding.

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

Your Muira wins from that selection @mrentropy

flutherother's avatar

If money were no object. Probably something like this I am not really a car person.

Blackberry's avatar

A Nissan GT-R, or Dodge Challenger. They just look the coolest to me; isn’t that the point of those cars anyways….

Lightlyseared's avatar

Bristol Fighter T or an SSC Aero.

JilltheTooth's avatar

I’m with the Wasp, I’ll take this.

No doubt about it… a Holden Efijy

mrentropy's avatar

@GladysMensch I don’t think you can get more retro-styled than that.

downtide's avatar

I don’t care as long as it has a chauffer to go along with it. Being half blind makes driving impossible.

McLaren F1

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McLaren_F1

Gordon Murray set out to make the worlds greatest road car and succeeded.

This car wasn’t created for celebutantes or the gold chain set, it was made for no compromise driving.

Imagine what a nirvana the world’s roads would be if every passenger car on it had it’s priorities so straight.

Blueroses's avatar

I would give anything for this Roadster
original body with updated engine and shocks.

@MeinTeil Oh, so pretty! I want! Thanks for the link, now I have a real dream car.

GMC Savana

Berserker's avatar

I’d love a packard hearse, those are so lovely. Finding an authentic one and maintaining it would be a lot of work though, hell would I even be allowed to drive that down Saint-Catherine? But yeah, that.

If not, a Porsche Turbo would do me just fine.

Fred931's avatar

If money were no object, then why bother having just one?

You guys are numb-noggins.

filmfann's avatar

If money were no object, anything that would impress Natalie Portman enough for us to play naked wheelbarrow.

Berserker's avatar

@filmfann Christ, even segmenting Christianity from England didn’t impress her…XD

jaytkay's avatar

lol @WestRiverrat, I expected to see a Greyhound

WestRiverrat's avatar

@jaytkay I think the one I want will better reduce the amount of road rage I see.

syz's avatar

This is mine.

gondwanalon's avatar

2011 Mercedes-Benz Unimog, They only cost about a ¼ million $‘s.

Zaku's avatar

Aston Martin DB5 with 00 equipment.

tinyfaery's avatar

I really LOVE my Mini Cooper. I’d get a nice, new one, convertible, with all the extras I want.

mrrich724's avatar

Lamborghini, 1999 Diablo VT Roadster to be exact.

Or an Aston Martin DB9

Not the Veyron though, it’s ugly in real life.

After spending two years working for a 5 Star hotel in Beverly Hills, I’m so desensitized I actually don’t care anymore, and it seems more ridiculous than “cool” like it used to. But if I had to pick . .. :)

cockswain's avatar

I’m a huge fan of the Saab 99. If I had a nice ‘79 99, with a 16 valve 5-spd manual, EMS rack, custom springs, moon roof, racing tires, and a righteous sound system, that’s all I need. Maybe cherry red, with EMS rims too. Very cool.

ETpro's avatar

A MINI John Cooper Works Clubman. They corner like a carnival ride and I just adore the look of them. Plus, here in Boston, it is occasionally possible to find a street parking space a Mini will slide into. Anything bigger and you can just drive on the the nearest paid lot and get clipped $25 bucks for an hour.

AmWiser's avatar

I would love to own this Hummer as my fun vehicle.

El_Cadejo's avatar

The batmobile obviously…..

that or this which looks strikingly like the batmobile.

Id also love to have this concept Jeep i mean two v8 HEMIs and the ability to turn both sets of wheels… bitchin

ihavequestions26's avatar

A red mini cooper with a black and white checkered top (:

wgallios's avatar

I’m with @ChazMaz, Bugatti Veyron for me

CyanoticWasp's avatar

Money no object and I still need a car? Then I’ll opt for my flying car, finally, and thank you very much.
