  • Possible new car - suggestions

    OK so I've had the TVR for nearly two years now and it may have to make way for something different as I fancy a change.
    Here is the list of requirements:

    0-60 < 5 seconds
    V8/V10/V12
    Not common/boring (I will not own an M3/M5!)
    Noisy
    350BHP+

    And my current shortlist:

    Mercedes CL600 Bi-Turbo (5.5 litre 500BHP V12 twin turbo)

    Budget is not down to what I can afford as such but more what I'm willing to outlay on a car at the moment, so let's say 15k-20k

      The Dodge Viper SRT 10

      So much car for the money

      Though I would be insanely jealous

            Dodge! Just because it's ridiculous to own one over here. That said - personally I'd choose the Noble (I was a bit gutted when you said you'd bought a TVR over a Noble last time).

              Esprit or Corvette. Purely based on the fact they're by far the best looking. Guy down the road has an Esprit in a burgundy kind of colour, bloody lovely.
