Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
For power to weight and especially roadholding on the sort of roads we've got I prefer this [rsportscars.com] for popping out for a baguette to go with my coffee ..
Actually drive at the moment a severely tuned and custom painted ( I haven't finished the paint yet ) 6 wheeled 3500 kg panel van ..more aerodynamic than it sounds ..think TGV ..course the road holding "empty" is cr@p ..left the BM and Jag in storage when we moved ..along with my bikes ..<sniff>
Thou I must admit the 535 looks tough, I can't deal with a 4-door, the one makes my mouth water is the 340 and if you can find one, the 850 :) I found a few pics, it is ueber-rare:
(by the way, a 5.0 in a bmw is a 12-cylinder)
Here's one in exquisite detail, for sale:
One day I might get a corvette, but much like the Mustang is only a ford, the vette is just a chevy.

Chrysler Firepower [chrysler.com]
I have the Chrysler Crossfire now. Went to the L.A. Auto Show this past weekend and got a close up look of my next car, the Firepower. :)
Performance provided by a 6.1-liter HEMI® V8 and a Dodge Viper-based chassis.
0-60 in under 4.5 with a top speed of 175 mph.

I just put one on lay-way. A few years of payments left before they let me pick it up.
Bugatti Veyron [forbes.com]
Some here have already said that is "silly" or words to that effect ....they have no soul ~:)
always did want to play with a blackbird ..ah well ..
When I search for a car, It need min 270 hp, min top speed 270 (bmw/mercedes no chip is ok) and I dont like the filt top on cabrio, it must be as the slk, but what do we have then, ofcause also a somewhat ok price.
Mercedes SLK 350, AMG 55
Ford Mustang 2005-
I need the speed.
Respects to Swedish aircraft too.
I like the 1967-69, but I would not drive that everyday, its a classic.
til you try to back it into a space with those dinky lil mirrors ..then it's a <snip> ..why do pony cars have such lousy all around vision ..and my head hits the roof ..and my legs don't fit ..otherwise they make a nice noise ..but they dont stick to the road ..

It says "Braking distance: 31 m (100–0 km/h)" gwaaann!
That is Tex Avery stopping power!
or a typo?
I tried that with a kawa 900 ..cost me a busted leg and some gravel rash and serious plastic costs ..and the scratch marks were way longer than 32 meters on the highway ..
So one is forced to ask is the car real ..( I would like to think so ..but "Braking distance: 31 m (100–0 km/h)" ..even plus brain response time ..is missing at least 100 metres?
A Mustang would be nice, eventhough I'm a bit uncertain about the suspension, maybe you need that type of suspension so that the car avoids wheel spins and that the power is distributed correctly.
The best car built by ford, IMO is the 64 1/2 Ford Galaxie 427 Z-Code with the aluminium fenders. There was one on that auction site last year that didn't sell at $35000.
Sticky me if you got one for sale ;oP
See, some of us in the UK understand American Muscle Cars.
Yeah, 31m sounds increadibly short ... but I don't think it's impossible, under the right circumstances.
I like the hardtop that fits in the "front".
