@tsarstepan,
I drive a horrible dirt road so my favorite car would be anything with a Bose suspension system

What's a Bose suspension system? Bose is a speaker manufacturer not an automotive parts designer/manufacturer (though they do design speakers and entertainment systems for automobiles).

@tsarstepan,
Amar Bose was actually an inventor of many technologies.

The new Bugatti Chiron will have a top speed of 290 mph, zero to 60 mph time of 2.2 seconds, and a price tag of over $2 million. They will make 100 a year for 5 years. The first 130 have already been paid for, sight unseen. Whenever you feel financially successful, remember that obscenely rich people buy $2 million supercars AND NEVER DRIVE THEM. Of course, some people also buy $100 million paintings and don't display them publicly. Cool

Lovely Ferrari but could almost be mistaken for a C7 Vette.

If I have to drive it on the street, most of the dream cars are way too frustrating to live with unless you have unlimited funds for tickets and even then you'd need multiple ID's to keep your license.

But I'm giving the i8 serious consideration. A dream car that would be fun to drive on the street. The M cars are OK but the rest of the BMW line has turned into boring luxomobiles.

In the mean time, a Polaris Slingshot is giving me more fun than I expected.

@Lordyaswas,
Bugattiā€™s Chiron is the beastly, faster-than-fast, 1,500hp Veyron successor

@tsarstepan,
I drove a Vette that my buddy owned, and it was stolen when it was parked in front of my apartment in Sacramento.

@tsarstepan,
This was over 50 years ago. I heard many years ago from his wife (I introduced them), that he died from a heart attack. Look up "Honolulu Harry's in Chicago." His parents owned two restaurants.

You can buy him this one to replace it if you like.

@tsarstepan,
Z06 without the supercharger makes a lot more sense.

@tsarstepan,
Unfortunately, he died of a heart attack many decades ago. His father owned a couple of restaurants in Chicago; Honolulu Harry's Club Waikiki on Wilson and Nakanoya across from Lincoln Park.

@tsarstepan,
in the last 2 years Chevy finally got the memo to start making a car that wont kill ya .

The biggest systemic problems vettes had were balance of power and suspensions. They believed that you could just jam horsepower under the hood and itll win the day. Ive seen too many of the damn things just spin totally out of control on relatively easy turns. PWS, I really hate those really cheap looking LED "xmas lights" that everyone is doing. Whatever happened to creativity?

@farmerman,
When I was stationed at Walker AFB in New Mexico, I met a guy whose parents owned the media in Minneapolis, Russell Cowles. He had one of those sporty MBZ sports car with wing doors. He took me for a ride once, and we were going 140 mph which was the highest speed I ever rode in a car.
