1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34

World wide know Skyline, mainly popularized by the movie "2 fast 2 furious", the Skyline is a Japanese legend. Also mainly known for being not allowed in the United States, but hearing from rumors the new model may be allowed sometime soon. I have seen older models of the skyline in the U.S. but none compare to this one. It is a great piece of art work, it's rear wheel drive provides you with intense handling ability, and the twin turbo allows you to slide freely with enough power causing you not to stop like you would in a normal car.

A potent addition to the Continental Series, the GT Speed extends the appeal of the Continental GT coupe to driving enthusiasts who place a high value on outright performance and agile handling.

1991 BMW M3

Probably one of the finest cars ever built, and the BMW that has made the most history. The E30 m3, perfect for cruising and racing. This car is the car that made critiques notice BMW in the late 80's and early 90's. This is one of my favorites, a true collectors car, which I myself plan to get. It is fun to drive and the real definition of a BMW.

2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI

The new STI was expected to be better this year. But when it cameo ut people were disappointed. The new styling is ugly. It's not a hatchback and not really a true wagon. Although the most important thing was kept, speed and handling. The STI has a turbo charged flat 4 engine and an all wheel drive drive line. The new STI has the spirit to keep up with the Lamborghini Gallardo but it's still $200,000 behind.

2008 Volkswagen GTI W12

The Volkswagen GTI W12, is by far the best car Volkswagen has made. It is the widest GTI made, with the biggest engine. It comes with a V12 engine, but how could it fit into such a small car you might ask. Well it goes at the back of your head, instead of the passenger seats. This car has the looks the speed and it delivers what it promises.

2008 Dodge Charger SRT-8

Another muscle car, that is based on an old model. Although the new Charger looks nothing like it's ancestors. The power sure does. Dodge's SRT-8 hemi engine is used in 5 of their cars. The Challenger, 300c, Jeep Cherokee, and the Charger itself. The Charger is all go, but no handles, just another muscle car. The styling is good, it has a mean look to it, with oversized rims.

1995 McLaren F1

The fastest car in the world before the Bugatti or the Ultimate Aero, the McLaren F1 carries BMW's s70 engine. Heavily tuned by the European F1 team, no superchargers, no forced induction. Just pure horsepower, the McLaren is a classic to remember, it held the world record for fastest car for the longest time, until finally beaten by Bugatti. And only does it do good in speed but also does good on the track.

2007 SSC Ultimate Aero

The world's faster production car since September 2007. Built by, the Americans, that's a surprise. SSC which stands for Shelby Super Cars beat the Bugatti Veyron by 2.83 seconds. Not bad, in my opinion I don't like the styling of the Ultimate Aero, it is old and ugly, also the Bugatti, I believe it needs to be something better for the amount you are paying. The Ultimate Aero is about 1 million less than the Bugatti. Also it boasts with better technology, a Twin Turbo V8 engine which out performs the Bugatti's V12.

2008 Porsche 911 GT2

The best performing Porsche yet, and about $300,000 cheaper than the Carrera GT. Turbo charged flat 6 engine, which produces 530 hp and a top speed of 204, this is truly amazing technology, while most Ferrari's have V12's and perform the same.

1998 Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR

First time I saw the CLK-GTR was in a video game, Need for Speed III. It was probably the best vehicle in the game. Ever since I was a little kid I have loved the Mercedes. It runs in my my family. The CLK is probably one of the most perfect race cars ever built. Only 25 have been built for road use. More rare than then the SLR or Ferrari F50 the ClK-GTR has been built for the track and has proven it self on the track. The interior is like an airplane full of gauges and buttons that help you control the roaring V12 at the back of your skull. Low to the ground the rear spoiler keeps you in control at turns in high speeds.

2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10

All American Muscle that always competes with the Chevrolet Corvette. I like the design it is nice and slick, with a mean front look. Engineered by McLaren Performance technologies, the new Viper now has better breathing ability which gives it better engine performance. The ride and handling of the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 is defined by a race-bred, fully independent, four-wheel suspension featuring lightweight, high-performance aluminum control arms and knuckles, damped by lightweight coil-over shock absorbers.

The fastest car in the world, after the McLaren F1. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4’s home is in Molsheim-Dorlisheim, the French town where, almost 100 years ago, Ettore Bugatti began to realize his lifelong dream of being a car manufacturer. The new workshop is not just where the engine and vehicle are assembled and tested, it is also the place where customers collect their Bugattis and drive them out onto the streets for the first time. Since the late 1990's many concepts were made for the fastest Bugatti and it's finally here.
