Mix and Match...

If you could make your own car/SUV by combining parts of all your favs, what would it look like?

Mine would be an SUV:
Commander exterior and interior (saddle bag seats)

Porche braking, Cayenne turbo

Wrangler off road ability

Escape efficiency

Lexus RX for resale value

The power of a Vette Z06
The style of an SRT-4
The braking of a Carrera GT
The handling of a Ferrari F1 car
Gas efficiency of a Prius
Resale value of a Honda S2000

I almost peed my pants when I read this. You can pick any features you want for this virtual car, and you want it to look like a Neon. You really need to get out more.

You have got to be freaking kidding me. An SRT-4... you think a Neon with a body kit, hood scoop, and spoiler is the best looking car out there... it's so sad it's not even funny anymore.

Alright...

Veyron engine, Commander/H2 body styling, Porsche Cayenne suspension system, Airbus A380 wings (on the sides--just in case you want to fly away), Oil slick from the exhaust, Machine guns on the side, and satellite TV) :laughing...and throw in some Land Rover

I know it's not all different cars, but that's what I wanted

Yeah... oh, sorry... no. It looks like (drum roll..... ) a Dodge Neon, which is a very sad looking little throw-away car.

I realize it's just one opinion versus another opinion. But that's just sad to think a Neon is the best looking car out there. It's like saying 6th grade is enough school to get by in life (it was once... it's not now).

Nobody's mentioned anything about the Aston Martin V8 Vantage... that is a FANTASTIC looking automobile.

Personally,

I'd design the body (carbon fiber/kevlar)
I'd design the chassis (Stainless/Carbon)
I'd design the suspension package
I'd design the interior
I'd design the engine

Those are all on my list of things to do.

I'd go with the restyled A350 for fuel efficiency, lol. Word on the Commander styling, they kept it true to the Jeep look - got to respect that!

For real, I read that Motortrend article a few months ago love it.
