this is my dream car for if i come across fuckloads of money
and this is the car that i will get and it will be my baby
Mercedes-Benz SLR 300
At some point I am planning on getting one of these. I'll go with a Backdraft (~$45K), or Superformance (~$75K) if I'm suddenly wealthier than I planned.
Pretty sure a posted this in the last thread, but hey! Holden Ute
>tfw you're 28 and own automatic cars your whole life
>one day find out every stick shifter thinks you're a girl
>find out that most normal guys drive a stick after browsing /o/ for a day thinking about upgrading car
now I hate driving my car. but I can't envision a situation where I could look good if I traded in my automatic and paid for a 5 speed. i doubt i could get it out of the lot to practice...
Nice choices. Those are some of my favorite cars.
The 1st generate Lotus Elise is my realistic dream car. i feel like fate is working in my favor. I'm being sent to manage a branch of my company in Ireland. The assignment could last a few years.
The 1996 Lotus Elise reaches the 25 year mark in 5 more years. You can import a car into the USA even if it doesn't meet emissions and crash standards once it is 25 years old.
If I am still in Ireland 5 years from now I'm buying one and importing it to the USA.
My end goal is to swap a Honda 2.4 liter K24 into it. Or just buy one with the swap already done. Honda engine swaps are quite popular as the original rover 4 cylinder in the Elise was a piece of crap.
You don't need fuckloads of money. You can get a 1st gen Elise for like 13,000 euros. A few thousand more to import it.
You can realistically import a 1st gen elise for less than $20K US dollars.
I realize this is in pounds, not euros, but my point still stands. I just took this screenshot. These are for sale today in the UK.
I need to compensate for my massive dick. That's why I want a tiny lotus elise.
This thing is sick
THE Lambo Countach from Cannonball Run II. I wanna sniff where Farah Faucet sat.
I've always wanted to se one of those modded with an underground racing turbo kit.
Imagine if the car in this video was 1,000lbs lighter.
The Sesto elemento has the engine and drive train of a Gallardo, but weighs over 1,000 lbs less. Undergrond racing gallardos can do 8 second 1/4 miles.
too many dream cars to choose from, but this bike is the daddy of all bikes and no one can argue that
>mfw you all pic oil guzzling, noisy shit-tier vehicles that are from the 20th century
get on my level, welcome to the TODAY.
My goal is to buy a riced out S2000 that some ricer blew the engine up on with too much turbo boost and swap a LS V8 into it.
Nobody believes it, but the V8 swap only increases the weight of the car by less than 100 lbs.
Swapping out a 2.0L 4 banger for a 6.2L V8 would be amazing.
>INB4 weight balance is ruined
There are multiple examples on S2000 forums of S2000s on corner scales showing that the weight distribution is still 51/49 with a V8 swap. That is still very balanced. Stock S2000 is 49/51 with the spare tire in the trunk.
so fucking cool... car goes up to your kneecaps. I don't like the green though - it should be all rust like this one.
Cobra first, then maybe a Rat rod.
2/3 of electricity in the USA is made with fossil fuels
A Ghia would be an awesome daily. Other than that, probably an s2k.
>2/3 of electricity in the USA is made with fossil fuels. whoops.
>in the USA
found the amerifag
who barely can see past his state's border, not to mention see the world globally
Don't forget about the huge environmental impact that lithium mining has. And the battery needs to be replaced every couple years. It's a massive battery that is probably bigger than all the other batteries you have ever used in your life combined.
Yeah electric cars are super friendly to the environment.
Good analysis lol
the only one who could fit in it then would be this guy
I don't care, it was the first licensed car I raced with playing vidya and I love it
another amerifag detected.
you get paid to shill for the gasoline industry?
there's a reason why more and more busses and trains run on electricity worldwide.
go figure it out why that is.
I challenge you to educate yourself
Found the eurocuck who thinks the rest of the world is better, when it isn't.
Yup. that's why Elon Musk had to bail out Solar City by having Tesla buy it before it went bankrupt.
Spanish solar company abengoa is almost bankrupt as well
"Saddled with debt from its expansion, the company is scrambling to avoid what would be the largest bankruptcy in Spanish corporate history."
Solar companies Solyndra Inc. and Abound Manufacturing Solar LLC also went bankrupt in the USA.
they have to get the costs down to be effective. The house I bought last year has solar, but it cost the previous owners $55K. My yearly electric bill is like -$16 (gas for cooking and hot water). The ROI is like 12 years or something stupid like that - not cost effective.
Ultimately, its a no brainer if you are in a sunny part of the world once they get the costs down.
no shit I am thinking about getting one of these to replace my lame ass SUV. 469hp
Not really, the prices have been like that for a while. It's not in demand. It's a tiny little car with no interior. Quite a bit of the interior is just bare aluminum. Not many people want it.
More for me!
there is a mix on the busses
some run lithium batteries, that are super-recharged within 5-10 minutes.
some run on charged super capacitors, short ranged but recharged within a few seconds.
some have mixed electrical & small gasoline backup engines to recharge the batteries on the go.
also, bus batteries tend to use Nano-Phosphat batteries. they last much longer (~100,000 - 200,000 times recharge cycles) than your average smartphone lithium battery (~800-1200 cycles) and have a much higher storage capacity than Li-Po batteries. but they are ass-expensive. Li-Po batteries are cheap. and the inbuilt obsolence of LIPo batteries in smartphones is by design. your smartphone is not suppose to last 5-10 years. only 1-2 years.
A new one with extra kit will set you back about £90k
I would love to have this fine piece of German engineering.
>Im going to have a super expensive "offroad" vehicle that I never even drive on a dirt road.
Nice poser mobile
Google a standard defender then this, also listed above, a winch, protective shit
I really want to make a perfect replica of Walt's Aztek. Mismatching wheel, damage the front bumper and hood so it looks like I just ran over some mexican drug dealers. Keep a duffel bag full of blue rock candy in the back.
I wonder if it's like this in the US. I would buy one tomorrow.
I've wanted the Exige S240 for 10 years.
Doesn't look as cool as it once did in my mind, but I would still drive it.
They were about 70k USD
The 1st Gen was never sold in USA. the ones that are here have been imported which is hard to do until they are 25 years old. Once a car turns 25 it is very simple to import because it doesn't have to meet emissions and crash standards. You just have to classify it as a "classic car". the catch is you can only drive it 2,500 miles per year.
Shill harder fag. There is no such thing as a lithium mine. That top photo is some other bullshit. Lithium is pumped out from salt flats. I work at the lithium brine pools in Nevada.
I really really like this car
well, if your plan is for post-apocalypse, why not up the game?
I want a custom rock crawler like this. Most badass vehicles ever made in my opinion.
Fuck your pussy ass land rovers
Noone posted a RS7 yet? damn. Love it or hate it I guess
Suzuki Hayabusa (Black/Chrome)
>Cars are lame

Modern cars look like ass

I bet you like this car too eh?
You like cars with the same looks as your mom

It looks like somebody got really drunk and tried to make their car into a NSX
Icona Vulcan Titanium.
$2.8 Million Dollars.
Only 1 made.
factory warranty of 1 month or 100 miles, which ever comes first.
> buying a first generation car from a brand new manufacturer.
But if you pay that much for it, it will be a garage queen.
good lord you faggots have the shittiest fucking taste in vehicles
Fuck ya..The Wraith. I dug it too. Also the Coyote from Hardcastle and McCormick. Loved that thing as well. That supercharger kicked on i got hard.
Any falcon coupe
Was such a great thread till the ameritards envaded at last moment as usual. No taste. They cannot build cars and they cannot compose music.
>cannot compose music
because it looks dope
>where do you live
>will it even fit
how is this relevant
>They cannot build cars
