Agreeing with Brit to some extent here, while I personally believe the Japanese are well at the top in producing the all around 'best cars'. The Japanese make cars that are practical, extremely reliable, innovative and finally have the astounding performance (thinking along the lines of Honda) that many other manufacturers haven't been successful in reaching without lets say V6s/V8s, turbo/super chargers and all that other jazz.

OFF-TOPIC EDIT: True Brit, please refrain from using multiple punctuation (!!!!!!, ????).

I could care less where a car came from, It couldve been built anywhere

I just look at the car by itself

I like to judge cars on their individual merits, preferably by manufacturer rather than country of origin, for example, I dislike Fiats, but wouldn't say no to a Ferrari Enzo, or other ridiculously fast supercars if one was offered to me on a plate!!!!!!

I think this will be the case as far as all supercars go, everybody loves supercars, even though the chance of ever owning one remains bleak, yet not everybody likes a Citroen C3!

I don't know really Cliffy, I'm more of a classic/muscle car style fan then I am a supercar one.. unless of course you offered a 1969 Dodge Daytona or 1970 Plymouth Superbird (..best of both worlds)

I agree, I was talking generally

Still the VTR as I seem to remember, I'm not sure about the VTS though....I think the VTR is their sporty 16-valve model now (I once drove a Saxo VTS at 135mph down the A3 in Surrey....on a hill mind you, lol) *Is law abiding really*
