This is on a whim (I would have to consider it for days).

1. 250 GTO
2. 288 GTO
3. F50
4. Saleen S7
5. Porsche 959

1 & 2 are solid. 3-5 would be subject to change until I was given final notice that I had to finally make the choice.

Other candidates for 3-5:

Bugatti EB 110
Merc Benz Gullwing
F40
Lotus Super 7 (the real ones)
Corvette Stingray ZL1

LOL, this is a great topic. Everyone wants MORE MORE MORE.

I completely forgot about the Zonda, that would be in my list of maybes. I don't really care for the Jag at all.

I saw my first M1 when I was in Japan. Sadly being in the U.S. I had never seen this car, and didn't realize it existed.

What is so special about it?

The M1 was BMW's one attempt at a true supercar. Visually it looks like a Lotus Esprit at first glace. Great performance and rare. The Jaguar XJ220 has got to be one of the most unloved supercars of all time. Despite this it is faster over a standing mile than the Zonda.

But on a track the Zonda will tear it apart. A Zonda will even rip a few Ferraris up. Did anyone ever do a Zonda vs Enzo test?

There are a few.

I have seen some older (1980s) (3 Series) Roadsters, as well as a couple of B10s (E34) they are all privately imported as nobody sells the new cars here.
I've been told of two B7s here (new model)

There are a lot of people who have taken their stock BMWs and put Alpina logos on there :-?

I would buy some of the Alpina wheels for my BMW. They're very, very cool! (price is very high though - more than even the best BMW rims)

There is an M1 in Australia. I have seen it!

I'd also get a Testarossa Koenig Evolution (700HP) - kick the pants of anyone in their WRX or Commodore :P
