Be seen in my car...

A car magazine once said, "we live in an age of automotive design...". Today's cars are not exactly known to be the most beautiful, but today there are definitely a lot of cars which are distinctive, as in they stand out from the crowd. Now, what do you guys think? If you wanted a car to be seen in, what would that car be? It could be concept, production, any kind. Personally my pick would be the Maybach Exelero; not alot of people may like the way that car looks, but it sure is distinctive.

I used to work for a dealership that sold Aston Martins, when I had to deliver a Vanquish to the owner, I got tons of stares and one guy took a picture. So I guess that would be the car to be noticed in. Plus, if you're not getting enough attention in it, you can just rev the engine. Nobody can ignore that.

Any of Alfa's concepts. They have beautiful concepts. Otherwise I'd go with an Aston Martin of some sort.

Ha! Here they are virtually unrecognizeable. I bet 98% of the people in a 5 mile radius of one would NOT be able to identify it at a glance.

I've only seen 2 in my life...One in the Washington D.C. area and one in Long Island, New York.

That's most of the reason I want one to be honest.

Anyways since you had to ruin it, clifford...



My dream car.
