Up to 6 modern cars allowed, so what's in your ideal garage & why?

For me it's easy....

Pagani Zonda Revolución - no reason needed, damn just look at it!
Ferrari 16M - beautifully balanced and exquisitely crafted, oh and its a tad shouty!
Ferrari 599GTO - as above.
Ferrari California 30 (Handling Speciale) - great all rounder for short journeys in the sun and for when I'm out with my wife and Hamish.
Ferrari FF - best all rounder in the world today IMO.
Newly launched 2014 model Range Rover Sport - it's all round abilities to conquer, oh and it's rapid...0-100kph in 5 secs anyone!

So if you could have any 6 modern cars in your garage, what and why?

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!


Current: California 30 Handling Speciale.
Past: FF, 458 Speciale, California 30, 599HGTE, Scuderia Spider 16M, California, F430 Spider

Since I define modern as post war:

Ford F150 Lightning. Everyone needs a DD and mine has been great.
D Jag
Mercedes 300SL Roadster and
Lancia Aurelia Spider. The only 3 rag tops ever made worth owning.
Lancia Fulvia HF. The worlds only front wheel drive car that has good driving dynamics.
Ferrari 288




But, I'd never own 6 cars. I have before and you don't drive them enough to prevent problems. You spend as much time fixing them as driving. We have 5 now and that is still too many. The other half wants an old GTO and I say 2 others need to go first. Pick 2 out and I'll shop for a GTO.

R5 is a great choice. Didn't think of that one.

It's probably the only car I like that came from France after WW2.

Unimog 406..... The mother of all 4x4s.... Forge the Chesapeake bay!
Daytona Spider...... One word! Gumball!
1966 Olds 442 convertible L69..... My dad had a 65. Always wanted one.

It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....

Oh man, a Unimog would be a lot of fun. Especially at the Hummer/Jeep offroad meets.

P1 - all black in case the red phone rings

La Fa - all black in case the red phone rings and the P1 doesn't start

FF - all grown up with a ton of hp to play with.

G65 - in case they ever come - I am prepared.

I really like the look of the McLaren P1. I hope it's as cool of a car to drive as it is to look at.

I would guess it's going to be top dog - unless Maser takes the P1 and adds some aero.

Mercedes GL 550 fly fishing car
Ferrari 575M pretty
Ferrari F12 fast and pretty
Ferrari F150 very fast and pretty
Ferrari F50 5 valve V12 fast and pretty
Ferrari 250 LM my favorite Ferrari, make mine short nose and LHD

Not sure the last one counts as modern, but what the heck. Would have liked to add an OSCA MT4 and a 67 327/350 AC Corvette, but no space.

black 458 coupe - http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v5...0/458black.jpg - Well, it's the best looking car i've ever seen, sounds great as well.

black 360 spider - http://svs-ltd.com/images/200404ferr...yder%20002.JPG - A great looking car with the top down, beats the f430 out because the rear prancing horse logo is bigger lol

black v8 vantage mansory - http://www.d2forged.com/gallery/wp-c...-Wheels-03.jpg - Classy car, stylish as well

Zonda old version - http://www.topmostcars.com/wp-conten...ni-Zonda-S.jpg - I love the older ones, they looked amazing when they come out and still do

black gallardo lp - http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5247/5...0a7b56d7_z.jpg - There was a time when I only like the gallardo and nothing else, so this can go in, I do prefer the lp over the original, only the rear though.
