    the BEST 5 Supercars

    All right, im sick and tired of all these SLR vs Ezno vs blah-blah.... polls

    I am asking you to sit back, think HARD about 100 years of evolution of the automobile.
    Post 5 s'cars that you think are the BEST.( In order)

    Here goes my list:

    5. Corvette Z06 : supercar performance at 911 price
    4. Lamborghini Countach : darth vader's starship
    3. Ferrari F40 : no frills all thrills, carbon fibre coffin
    2. Porsche 959 : the most technicall advanced car on this planet
    1. Ford GT40 Mk IV : LeMans winner-rocket, will do 200mph (high speed gearbox) or 0-60 in 4secs (close gearing)
    John Buffum was the man.

    This is a tough question and I'm probably gonna regret it as soon as I poast it but here goes:

    1. Ferrari Enzo - It's simply the best
    2. Ferrari F40 - All you need in a car, seats, wheels, engine, total driving satisfaction
    3. Porsche 911 - Pick any year, it's still gonna thrill you
    4. RUF CTR "Yellowbird - Scariest car around, makes a 911 Turbo feel as easy to drive as a Volvo Estate
    5. Lamborghini Diablo - Supercar Icon
    "Horsepower Is How Fast You Hit The Wall, Torque Is How Far You Bring The Wall With You"

    i was gonna say speed 12 but there is no way you could use it as an everyday car

    Well the 5 best supercars are (in no particular order):

    Mercedes-Benz 300 SL "Gullwing" (as JM says, the original)
    McLaren F1 (redefined the supercar forever)
    Pagani Zonda C12 S (just what a supercar should be)
    Lamborghini Diablo GT (oldschool thrills)
    Porsche 911 Turbo (the everyday supercar)
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    He wrote THE BEST supercars. That doesn't mean the most revelotionary ... it means the ones that are best to drive.

    5.Lamborghini Diablo VT 6.0. Fast. Loud. Supercar looks and Supercar performance.
    4. TVR Sagaris. 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and under £50k? Yummy.
    3. Ferrari F50. I dont like them but in essence it IS a pure supercar. Magazine tests found it more enjoyable than the Enzo too.
    2. Pagani Zonda F. Surreal interior, surreal soundtrack, as refined as an SL55 AMG.
    1.McLaren F1. 3-seats. Luxury. Personal mechanics. Expensive, lightweight materials. As much luggage space as a Ford Fiesta. F*cking amazing engine note. Perfect driving position. Can cruise along like an MX5. Suddenly transforms into killer-supercar-thingy when your foot gets heavy. Great handling and even better ride (Better ride than almost any other supercar on the market infact). Super-rare. Looks like a proper supercar. 0-60 in 3.2 seconds, more than enough top speed. Short body makes it easy to take around town and park. Even has its own internet socket so you can get your car diagnosed from anywhere with an internet connection. Do I need to say any more?

    Edit : Have yet to read any reviews on the Veyron so I haven't included it. You never know, the Veyron could handle badly, be un-involving to drive, be as reliable as Babyshambles (w000t!)

    1. Porsche 911 Turbo - What other car can you jump into to go to the local shops on Sunday, and at the same time cream 99.99% of the cars on the road, theres just NO substitute

    2. Ferrari F40 - For pure thrill

    3. Lamborghini Murcielago - Beast

    4. Bugatti Veyron - Played the numbers game, and won

    5. Koenigsegg CCR - Different from all the others in many ways, gives a unique stance on supercar

    so basically every cliche supercar ever made?
    He came dancing across the water
    With his galleons and guns
    Looking for the new world
    In that palace in the sun
    On the shore lay Montezuma
    With his cocoa leaves and pearls
