2. Kleeman s55c8
3. Maseratti Gran sport
4 Benz SL55 amg
5. 3000gt vr-4
6. E46 m3

2. Ferrari Enzo
3. Koneizegg CCR

5. Pagani Zonda C12s
6. Lamborghini Merchalgo Racing version thing with the new 600hp(forgot it's acual name)

If you had all the money you could possibly need, you would not need a daily driver. The correct categories would be: Practical or Reliable and Collectible or Hobby. My dream stable would be:

Practical:
E39 M5 (I have a family)
Ferrari 575 Maranello
Porsche Carrera GT

Hobby: (I love vintage Ferraris)
375 Plus
250 Mille Miglia (Spyder)
500 Mondial (series 1)
250 Testa Rossa (1957)
250 Tour de France
250 SWB
250 California Spyder (SWB)
246 SP
250 GTO
250 LM
275 GTB/C
288 GTO
Maserati 300S

Those should set me back a good 30 million or so.

PS add on another 3-10 million or so for a good pre-war 8 cylinder competition Alfa while we're at it.

I would love to type all the wonderful cars down here, but then I end up just getting depressed:(. I am just happy to realize that I am driving a car (E39 M5) that would be on my list:).

Weekend rally car would be an old group B Audi Sport Quattro.
Daily driver would be an E39 M5 fresh from Discovery.
Autocrosser would be an A2 VW GTI 16V with a 6spd dog box
Track car would be a Ferrari F40 (Top Gear Enzo review stirred my dormant feelings for that car)
Canyon carver would be an older FC3S tuned for corner entry oversteer.
To get out of Dodge I would have either a Boeing Buisness Jet or a Challanger 604 (gotta build hours somehow, and I know they arent cars, but why limit ourselves)
Finally for kicks I would have an old Caddy that is 20' long so I could grind crappy drivers into guard rails when I feel so inclined.
:cheers:

Everyday:
Ferrari 575 Maranello (I will choose this car)
Porsche 911 Turbo
Ferrari 612 Scaglietti
Mercedes SLR McLaren
Lamborghini Gallardo
BMW M5 or Mercedes E55 AMG (when you take your family) - until E60 M5 I will take this car.
Hummer H2 (for winter) - dont say! I know it eats or maybe even drinks gas, but its a Hummer, its same like Ferrari, everybody likes it (nobody buys it, because GAS and size, but I will, actually I already have one)
- if you dont want to drive (Rolls-Royce Phantom, Maybach 62) - I will drive, so this category is not for me.

Hobby:
Old Ferraris (like 250GTO)
Ford Mustang Schelby GT500
Some old Bentleys or Rolls-Royces
Just whatever, its private opinion, depends on a person

Weekend car (for TRACK):
Ferrari Enzo
Porsche Carrera GT
McLaren F1
Pagani Zonda
Lamborghini Murcielago
Koenigsegg CC8S or CCR

I use these cars:
BMW M5 E39 - every day
Hummer H2 - family trips
Mercedes C220CDI 2005 - my wifes car, its really nice and comfortable, but its ultra slow. (I dont want her to fly on the road)....

Thats it!
