    i think i would go with this order
    Lamborghini
    Porsche
    Ferrari
    lamborghinis are stunning and i really like them, porsches are very reliable and the ferrari is good but it feels cliche.

    I feel quite out of place being the only one to chose option 4. ;)

    I just can't stand the body styles, or the fact that they are so friggin expensive, and are not at all fuell efficient. I understand they are meant for performance, etc. but you'd think that with all the money they have they'd be the leader in that department. The only company that I have seen put effort into stuff like electric cars has been Daimler.

    Look at these statistics:

    Ferrari 612 Scaglietti

    Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
    http://www.fueleconomy.gov/***/bymodel/2008_Ferrari_599_GTB_Fiorano.shtml

    Porsche on the other hand is doing better with an average of 20mpg from what I can see, and thats not great either.

    Then comes the Lambos, which have about 10 miles per gallon city, and 17 or so highway.

    That is why I don't like any of them. :) My opinion, and as stated many times before, they are like ***holes, everyone has one.

    Well.......

    Just a nod to the Bugatti "Veyron".

    Ferrari and especially Lamborghini have the looks. Porsche, not so much.

    If you can afford a $300,000 car, gas isn't a problem.

    I wanna know where these people live..

    Oh twite, wrong again........sorry

    I don't know where you got this but, it's incomplete.
    IMHO, It's actually closer to; "opinions and a*******s, everybody has one! Or possibly; "opinions are like a******s, everybody has one"!

    I understand it may not be your quote, but you gave no attribution.

    Now don't get mad, it's just me striving for accuracy. "IMHO" says me, ya gotta love the irony there.

    I drive my 750 Nighthawk all year, it gets 40 MPG in the city, and 50+ on the highway, so these people with the hummers and such are basically stealing gas out of my tank with their wastefullness.

    This thread is not which best fuel economy car you would buy,it's which of the 3 performance cars and if i had the money i would buy them all.I will also get a 730d and 330d as my everyday cars, the other cars are for track days.

    Err, sorry, that was me, and I was trying to simply say that it was my opinion, and opinions are like ***holes, everybody has one.

    I know it wasn't based on fuel economy, but it was based on which one you'd buy AND gave an option for none, that they all "suck", basically. That is what I chose and I gave my reasons.

    What are you talking about? I was quoting someone else from this thread.

    I guess that's the irony..

    "assumptions and *******s, everybody has one"

    No twite, that's just not right either. ROTFLOL Gotta say, that's really funny though.

    I guess you missed reading this from the same post......
    Should I have capitalized?


    Back to topic, (sort of)!
    You can have your Porsches, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and even your Bugatti "Veyron", but nothing compares to to thrill of knowing you own the car that just screams out, "I have paranoid delusions of grandeur, so what", a Pearl White Cadillac Escalade.
    Leased of course, not purchased.

    Oh, I didn't know it was necessary to attribute a source when the quote was visually directly above it.

    I keep forgetting this isn't an internet forum, rather an MLA styled class room.

    I'll make sure I work harder in school..but just for you; it seems I'm falling off these day's.
  16. I have to add: "designed and built by *******s for *******s"

    That's me done, have a nice thread.

    :wave:

    twite, he was stating that you didn't fix my quote, merely made a form of joke about it, if I am not mistaken.

    BTW, not so lonely anymore!!!!

    i dont like new cars or piston engines i like gas turbine engines and i don't know of that many things that use them but here is one. the faster you go the more torque you have so they had to put a governor on it to stop it from breaking its own drive train.



    http://www.techspot.com/vb/attachment.php?attachmentid=33362&stc=1&d=1213482598

    engine: i dont know much i think it has 1500hp its the same engine as a cobra helicopter its a gas turbine umm you fill in the rest
    weight: 69tons or 138,000lbs so i thank that's 62.5957 kg and 62.6 metric tones
    top speed: 45mph with governor or i think that's what its called without it over 60mph
    price: last time i herd it was about 6 million dollars
    tires: it has tracks


    advantages
    #1 you cant get stuck in traffic
    #2 if you get in a race you can blow up the road so you opponent cant get to the finish line
    #3 its a tank
    #4 you cant flatten its tires
    #5 it can be fitted with a mine sweeper so that if the person your racing happens to drop mines in front of you you can drive threw them
    #6 it has a gas turbine engine that howls instead of purring
    #7 its a tank!!! what else do you need to know
    #8 if you loose a race you can make sure the opponents car wont ever race again
    #9 if someone takes your parking space you can park on top of them
    #10 ittssss a taaaaaannnnnkkkk!!!!!!!!!!
    #11 it usually runs on jet fuel but if you cant find any at the gas station you can run it on almost anything combustible like perfume or scotch
    #12 it has built in night vision so you can blow up your neighbors lawnmower at 2:00am
    #13 it has awesome suspension
    #14 it looks awesome and its huge

    no that's just the standard model but you don't need it to be a hybrid you if you can run it on almost anything combustible. so that's anything from hydrogen to jet fuel even most if not any flammable alcohol like ummm i don't know you think of some flammable beverages. im not sure but i think it gets 1/8 of a mile to the gallon and takes 11 gallons to start the engine so who needs a hybrid with that kind of millage!!!
    and im not sure what you say when you mean ablative armor but it can be outfitted with reactive armor so it can take a bunch of missile hits and all you would have to do is put some new panels on. if you only buy a few rounds you can just steal your fuel from the gas station.

    the looks pretty cool but i found something almost as good as the tank. look at these videos of it

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=BBozXKnSZ6o

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=wQM_TyyRye4&feature=related


    i know it doesn't look as fast as all those cars but if a gas turbine engine gets more torque the faster it goes that i wonder how fast it could go in a ten mile stretch.

    i love gas turbine engines!!! now if they put a chinook engine which i think has 3000hp inside of a Lamborghini or a Porsche or Ferrari or the McLaren F1 or maybe 2 of them in an older mustang than i would have voted something other than They're all a piece of crap made out of metal but they havnt yet so i would gladley choose this or a the Abrams any day!
