8.3L 505 V-10

Chrysler ME-Four Twelve.

Stats:
Probably going to be sold around $500,000
6.0L V-12
quad turbos
0-60: 2.9 seconds
850(b? i think)HP
around 3.4lbs/HP
2800 curb weight
7speed manual double clutch tranny
top speed: estimated 248 MPH

The good thing is, it runs of fuel you can buy at any pump. Not high octane racing fuel. It's a kick ass car with tons of broken records. No one can arque a better car than this. No one.

I like that one too, but are they really going to make it?

MY FAV IS THE SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI! (The name says it all!)

I like to think practical, so I'm going to have to go with the '05 corvette C6 Z06.

500 hp, 500 ft-lbs, and a everyday driver. Naturally Aspirated too!

If I had a choice I'd just use the cash to get a frame-off restoration on my 76 Monte Carlo...

But if I had to buy a car, I'd have to (try at least) buy Jay Leno's 1966 Toronado.

Reason... Old school ride that has the looks and is a 100% pure sleeper w/ that 1070-horsepower twin turbo 425cid V8 small block under the hood.
