A refurbished vintage red convertible VW bug. I would get this, because I think they are cool.

A dodge challenger. Because I don’t drive anyways, and I think it’s pretty.

Oh god so many choices, I would like a showroom model of my current car but sky the limit, probably that full electric Mercedes (bright yellow one). There’s also that 6×6 they make though which would be awesome. Also the Marauder that they featured on top gear.

Fuck it I’ll just go for a tank.

I’d most likely go with the new camaro though, or a rally fighter since they would be more practical, but if I had room for a charging station and stuff the Mercedes.

I think I’d have to go with an Astin Martin DB9. I like this red one but maybe silver.

Or for sheer fun, perhaps one of these.

Lotise Elise, I sat in one once, and it wasn’t comfortable at all, so I wouldn’t buy it for the comfortability factor, just because I really love the look of the car.

Nice choice. ^

Man I remember from a ford racing game, I think it was FR3 but I can’t recall and can’t find my old disc :( but I think there was a lotus car with a full glass roof, it was pretty cool.

There was also an off road one with an awesome jeep and beach/winter tracks I loved.

The R8 is my dream car.

Helps if you can type. AstON Martin DB9.

Aston Martin if I was spending silly money with no thought. I can buy one, if I spend way too much money on a car and I don’t, I leased myself a Honda Accord instead. I like the Maserati too, but I’d be nervous it might break down a lot. It’s supposed to be better now.

My husband is the car lover, Porsches are his thing. He spends enough in cars for the two of us, so I’m glad I don’t care and don’t want a very expensive car. I’m fine just driving his choice and never getting my fantasy car. I’d rather have a vacation condo somewhere.

Panoz GTR-1 for the street. They will custom make one for you at their Georgia shop. This what one looks like.

I with the Tesla crowd.

That new supercharged Dodge Challenger sounds interesting. 707 horsepower, where do I sign up for life insurance?

rojo's avatar

One of These but purchase would only be part of the cost. Keeping it fueled would also be high.

I’d use that money to help afford to live someplace nice where I don’t want to drive because it’s so nice to just walk everyplace I want to go.

The car I liked driving most was my e30 BWM 325, before it started to fall apart and not work right. They should re-make those with manual transmissions and no built-in obsolescence (i.e. parts that die).

The car I like the aesthetic of most might be the Aston Martin DB5… preferably also with reliable/new parts, and best with the 00 accessories and immunity from traffic law enforcement.

But if I don’t get the money, no fantasy car, but can pick any, I’d probably try an electric. Not sure which, as I’m not in the marked and haven’t studied them.

Tesla. I want to encourage the technology. Plus it would be such an amusing contrast with my tumbledown house on the beach.

flutherother's avatar

I don’t need a car and I wouldn’t get one.

XOIIO's avatar

@flutherother Why not get the car and sell it?

flutherother's avatar

@XOIIO Then I’d be back to having the money, only less of it.

ragingloli's avatar

sell it for a higher price, then.

flutherother's avatar

Unlikely, there are better investments.

The same Nissan truck I have right now. It’s pretty enough and consistently puts out.

shrubbery's avatar

66 Dodge Charger or 67 Chevy Impala. I know nothing about cars but I think classic cars are pretty, and these two in particular are from one of my favourite movies and one of my favourite TV shows respectively.

I would buy a Mercedes-Benz. It has sophistication, power, their value holds. Every Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz now comes with industry-leading coverage: an unlimited-mileage warranty for one year that can be extended for up to two additional years. So you know they keep their value!
Oh Lord, wantcha buy me, a Mercedes-Benz?
