    Just remembered, C32 AMG or C55 AMG, the previous model of course.

    The latest one is far too crazy and showy to be a Q car.

    By the way, why does it seem that no one makes a proper Q car anymore?

    The newest Q car is the Audi RS4 probably.

    It's not M5 fast. The first series without catalytic converters had 215bhp, did 150mph and 0-62mph in 6"8 seconds.

    A modern Q car? Probably a debadged standard BMW 135i.

    Wasn't the turbo 2.0L faster than the Fezza engine'd model?

    Yes, later 16V Turbo models were quicker from 0 to 100 km/h. As a matter of fact, Thema 8.32 is probably the slowest of all Q-car's mentioned here, but that's not the point .

    It's a Q-ship that invested in a really nice brig instead of some big guns. The Cortina is slower..just.

    For me, the ultimate Q Car is most probably an Audi, followed by BMW and Volvo.

    In my head, a Q Car is something that packs a punch, but is only obvious to a car nut.
    For example, the B7 RS4; to someone who knows nothing about cars it is just a normal Audi, just with fat arches and makes a racket.
    Although, something like a Maserati GranSport (just off the top of my head) may also be seen as a Q Car to some extent, in that its aggression is very subtle, yet you know it's something special.

    However, I believe that a Q Car should be something that only a car enthusiast can identify, which is why the B7 RS4 (Avant especially) is the current ultimate Q Car.

    Yeah, that works as well. The Tii version too, maybe.

    No I don't think so.

    Actually yes, yes it is the point. A Q-car that's not fast isn't a Q-car at all.

    Well it is lighter, so if you work on all those little bits and pieces, it could become a Q car.

    That's the reason why I put the "maybe" in.
