what would be the best?

Obviously this is open to your own opinion and also open to alot of 15 year olds who can't actually drive somehow driving a friends ferrari, but.....what is the "best" car you have driven.

up untill a couple of years ago (back in London) the best I had driven would have been my dads MX-6 since being in NZ though I now have driven some real nice cars. cars I had only read about in EVO magazine.
The best probably being a brand new Mercedes E55 AMG.

the fastest being a Mazda rx-7 with god knows how much spent under the hood creating a 10 second car. Although 10 seconds was also the amount of time it took before blowing up most of the time. finally bought by an 18 year old girl who wrapped it round a power pilon after owning it for a grand total of 2 weeks.

My favorite being the bosses 2002 bmw M5 while he was away for a month.

well thats me, what about you?

Best car I've driven...hmm 3 finalists

- BMW 330i Manual w/sport package = loved the alcantara steering wheel

- Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII = crazy AWD launches and power-a-plenty

- Toyota Supra TT = amazing all around car w/probably the strongest Japanese motor ever (save maybe the RB26DETT)

hehe, yeah those M5s are preety damn good eh?

I want to drive one of the new V10s. Still haven't fully warmed to the styling yet, although I saw a black schnitzer version a while ago and that wasn't too bad. Still think the old 6cyl ones are the best looking!

btw, did you mean the 6cyl or did you mean the first of the V8s? mid-ninetys when?

Best car I've ever driven was my grandparent's BMW 540i...not only did I get to drive it, I got to drive it alone!

Oh damn that was fun...

Only once though, and probably never again.

I would have to say I've driven cars that are best in diffrent ways

For luxury I've driven a Maybach 62, but the backseat is 10 times better. The V-12 is almost silent when in the backseat.

For speed I would have to say my mom's Mercedes S55 AMG.

And finally for SUV a 2004 Range Rover, although it drove a little sloppy for my tastes. On second thought all SUVs are a little sloppy for my taste.

Yes we have roundabouts...they are used in lieu of stop signs here so traffic can continue to move freely. They arent used everywhere but here in Gainesville we have some. People forget that it's a yield and come to a full stop even if there's no one in the roundabout at the time. Silly Yanks!

It was the squarer shape modle...about a 94-95....quite a late example, I'm no got with model codes lol. I believe it would have been a 6cylinder?
