As the flagship Ferrari, it can only be one color IMO...





Sure, I could live with a different colored F12berlinetta or even 458...but, the Poopdick McFartington MUST be red.

So you were the one behind the that thread title change?

I could never own that car, but damn it's great to admire it.

Righto. But, only one color is worthy of the Enzo: Rosso Scuderia.

I didn't realize there was a rosso scuderia I always thought it was just rosso corsa.

Supposedly the difference is that RS has a bit of an orange hue to it, and they introduced it so it would make their race cars stand out just that much more on TV.

I would rather have a R35. I have accepted the fact that I don't like "old" cars.

I saw a new 328i today and thought it was a 5-series from a distance. The 3-series has really gotten big.

Really? It doesn't look that much bigger than the E90 to me. But the styling is much too similar to the 5.

At least we still have small cars that are better than they were. Can't wait for the first 135/CLA/S3 comparison test.

That's because it's the only one out of the group that makes me involuntarily wince when I see it in person. The only really appealing thing to me is that powertrain. The rear looks decent too, I guess.

The rear looks the same as all the other Skylines!

Okay, it has the best looking rear end out of all the Skylines there, I said it. Quads + LEDs = I give.

But any of the other three poo all over the R35's front end with their aggressive front ends and dem fender flares. Overall proportions just look much neater and more cohesive. They're about as subtle as an Evo, but they just appeal much more to me.

and yes, I put way too much thought into these kinds of things.

The front end of the R35 reminds me of some sort of down syndrome-stricken lovechild of these two:

I can sort of see that. I forgive the R35's looks because of its performance.


PS: That Celica's exposed rear hatch is driving me nuts.

I suspect the Poopdick would win. Even though the 918's numbers are jaw-dropping, that weight has to be a factor in this case, right?

Pulled up next to my old (actual) TL today at a light. I was pleased to see it was still in really good shape (at least on the outside).

Yeah, memories huh? I see my old CL-S still. But, the new owners have really mangled the Versus kit on it.

Yeppers. Mine is quite easy to spot since it's the only Acura CL-S that has a bodykit in town.

^ Would love to see a pic of your CL one day.

I/my family haven't sold any cars since I've been around, but I've never even seen a friend's car that's been sold. Big city I guess.

Ah, nothing to brag about...but, it was my first car. Loved it until it was no longer practical.

Posted this pic before but, here you go! It looked even better when I had some other wheels on it. But, sorry...only got pics of stock rims.

So that's the original Snowplow, huh?

It looked good. Versus kit looks a little too aggressive for me, but I bet it popped with aftermarket wheels.
