1. F40
2. 250 GTO
3. 250 TR
4. 512 BB LM
5. F60 or FXX

next 5
6. F430 spider
7. F355 GTB
8. 308/328 GTS
9. P3/4
10. 333

If I could add another 10 I still wouldn't have finished. Guess I'd need a hangar not a garage, and a full time Ferrari mechanic would be useful.
Stonkin' selection, talk about brand loyalty though.

I think it would be a totally different outcome if I really were in a position where I could afford 5 supercars. There would probably be a Gallardo or a Murcielago somewhere in the 5

A 5M win on the lottery next week would probably see the following in the garage.

1. Keep my 328 for sentimental reasons
2. Audi RS4 cabriolet for everyday use
3. Audi Q7 or RS4/6 Avant for shopping
4. Lambo Gallardo or Murcielago
5. 430 spider or 599 depending on which lambo I bought

and a Mini Cooper S for my wife

and my son wants a kids sized Lambo Countach roadster replica like the one we saw at Auto Italia last summer.

So Tom,
Which model Ferrari are you partial to?

That Vette is kind of like an orange in your bag of apples.

Yes it is. They are completely different approaches to arrive at the same end.

I've tried to think of a list that I could actually live with. Of course, there are many supercars I wouldn't mind having, but, in terms of pure usability, I'd like some sort of variety.

1: McLaren F1
Despite the Veyron's ultimate numbers, something about the F1 just appeals to me. I've had multiple dreams about this car. Obsessed? Probably. Oh, and, it's immensely usable with its relatively ample trunk space, seating for three, and the best customer service in the world.

2: Ferrari 599
Its one fault is the singular lights in the back, in my opinion. From the side, though, the lines are sexy as hell.

3: (Insert one crazy, senseless car here) Not limited to: Pagani Zonda, Spyker C8, Lamborghini Countach
Basically, a category of car that isn't so much driveable, as ostentatious and just out-there with the styling. Something that you can laugh about. Something where they don't say "oh, he's got money" as much as "what a moron"

4: BMW M5 (or an Audi equivalent.. RWD has its faults in snowy conditions)

5: Land Rover Discovery (Need something to store lots of crap and haul other crap.. and won't break)

I like it! A realist garage and not the billion dollar garage even Bill Gates would have trouble affording.

Thanks, probably all but the 288gto on their own are kind of affordable, just not all at the same time.

5.... that's way to hard

Ferrari F50
Ferrari 360 CS
Aston Martin Vanquish S
Ferrari 410 SA
Rolls Royce Phantom I Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe

The rest of my list is here: http://www.supercars.net/gallery/129612/1010/1.html

It's an instant classic. It's an iron fist in a velvet glove. It's a Ferrari.

That's a sensible garage Monza, not one where you need to be the Sultan of Brunei's secret love child to be able to afford it.

I don't know what the Tacoma is as we don't have them here, but I suspect it's a 4 door 4 seat pick up as per the Mitsubishi Warrior type of vehicle.

BTW - I'd swap the X5 for a Q7, nothing wrong with the X5, I'm just a big Audi fan
