Mine would have to be a Panther Pink 70 Challenger T/A


But since I know I will NEVER have one I guess I could always settle for this

A buddy of mine is a engineer at Saleen. What a lucky dog he is.. Very sweet car there, but I think they'd suck in the snow.... :)

1937 Cord 812 Phaeton Supercharged


1936 Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic (one of the rarest cars ever made, and just beautiful to look at)


1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS


Barabus TKR (world's fastest car)


And my dream JEEP: 1968 Kaiser M715


:cheers:

Worlds fastest car? Details?
6.0 liter V8 twin-turbocharged with dual intercoolers
1,005 horsepower
0-60 in 1.67 seconds
Top speed: 270 mph
Price tag: $668,000

I should note, we're talking fastest production cars here.

It replaced the Bugatti Veyron as the world's fastest car when it was unveiled in 2006, with a top speed almost 20 mph more, not to mention a price tag of around $500,000 less. But Bugatti is already working on a new model of the Veyron to try and regain their long-held top spot.

It's validity has been speculated, though, and some believe the new Shelby Supercars Ultimate Aero is the world's fastest production car - posting a speed of 257 mph, though wind tunnel tests showed it could reach 273 mph - it just ran out of road. Guinness has never acknowledged either the Bugatti or the Barabus, however, which means their records are "unofficial," despite being recorded. Personally, I prefer the looks of the Italian-designed Barabus TKR, so if I had my pick, I'd go with it. :D

The title of "fastest production car" WAS the Barabus TKR and now the new title holder is the SSC Ultimate Aero TT,which is a turbo V8 outputting 1183 HP and 1094 lbs. of torque.On a temporarily-closed 2 lane public highway in Washington State, the SSC Ultimate Aero posted a top speed of 257.11 mph (413.83 kph) on its first pass and 254.55 mph (409.71 kph) on its return pass, achieving a new top speed record: a staggering 255.83 mph (411.76 kph).

But that's according to the fine people at the Guinness Book of World Records. If I'm not mistaken, neither the Barabus TKR or the Bugatti Veyron were acknowledged by Guinness. But... I could be wrong. Either way, the Barabus is smaller and lighter than the SSC, and just prettier to look at IMO.
