Default Old supercars

What do You think about old supercars like Lamborghini Countach?
If would buy super car it will be today car but if it will be next and next car for my dream garage I could think about something older.

i think old cars have something, something simply cool what in today world is forgotten.

Ferrari Testarossa = my dream supercar. I don't care if it's not as fast or as angular as the new ones. I don't care if it's as expensive, either. I don't know why but I just like the looks of them, and the sound of the 12 cylinder boxer they have.


Oh, and the proper six speed. None of this floppy paddle nonsense.

Default By the way

Once I wa watching fifth gear on Discovery.
They saying about old Ferraris and about how it costs. I was in schock, it was 20.000 punds, 28.000 euro for very good model. This is cheap, new Ferrari can costs half milion but used, older is cheaper then casual new Mercedes.
They say car is in good condition, good performance but no 4 wheel drive and no ESP so be careful with V8 engine

The Countach is a sick car, but I would love to own a Ferrari F40 .

Awesome quote. This means the Nissan GT-R isn't a supercar. Yay! I hate them.

Actually the GT-R is a Grand Tourerer.


Nice job trying to troll me, though.

The original Ford GT40 (1960's). The true Ferrari killer. It was a beast on the track. Was packed with crazy new technology for its time. And is a beautiful car even to this day. But Ford was kind enough to ruin it by making a shameful look alike that was street legal, more expensive, and yet not perform as well...? So much for new tech!?

Ballerness of 1965!
