This


Or this! Factory 5 33 coupe. sits around 1500lb and share the chassis with their cobra kit cars add nice 300-400hp small block and it'd be one hell of a ride!

This. Because it is THE COOLEST CAR EVAR. I would totally put up with the Joe Dirt jokes.

I amend my choice; I mentioned the Nissan GT-R before, but let me choose again.



The Golf GTI. Let's say the current one, or the MQB platform one that's dropping in under two years. Let's see why.
  • 210bhp (220+ in the new one) and similar torque. The new one will be under 3000lbs.
  • 2 door or four door, take your pick.
  • Consistently at the top of enthusiast car magazine reviews for most of its model history, and pretty much invented the hot hatch segment
  • You will neither be pulled over, nor laughed at when showing up at a meeting due to its styling. It's agressive, but not boy-racer.
  • You can put stuff in the back. A LOT of stuff. And it has very comfortable, spacious back seats.
  • It's thrifty on both gas, and insurance. It's also extrmeely safe.
  • You can get one with practically every amenity imaginable. Chances are, if it's in an S-Class Merc or RS Audi, it's in some trim level of the GTI.
  • Did I mention plaid seats?
  • The ride, handling, and gearbox are all excellent. And unless you mod irresponsibly, the stock clutch will suffice too.
  • And if the power stats aren't up to your standards, there has always been, and will always be an amazing dearth of tuning options for it.

So if I had to choose one car, for free, and the responsibility for insuring, gassing it up, and otherwise running it were all on me, I'd have myself the GTI. It is an all-rounder you can actually live with and doesn't scream that you are either 1) Insane or 2) an enormous douchebag.
