    I haven't got a clooooooooo

    Ok, It's my birthday today and got a superb pressie off my better half, a 'Racing Day' voucher.

    My choices are;

    A Lambourghini Gallardo(all 130,000 of it)
    A porsche
    A Ferrari 360
    An Aston Martin
    An Ariel Atom
    Audi R8?
    Lotus Elite
    V8 touring car

    Which one should I choose?

    I've got the same sort of choice to make, though I think my options are Aston Martin, Porsche, Ferrari, Lambo or Atom.
    I'm tempted to do the atom, just for the sheer speed of it, but I might end up going for the Aston, just cos.......

    Probably the Atom, unless it's raining and then definitely the Atom! Driving these sorts of cars re-ignites the 10 year old in us, and 10 year olds like jumping in puddles!

    I'm going to add to the Lambo or Atom votes.

    The Atom just looks insane, but there'd always be part of me wanting to drive an aston....to quote "just cos" :-)

    I'd go for the Aston. There's something about them that just does it for me. Even when car reviewers have said it's better to get the V12 Vantage rather than the V8, I'd still be tempted to get the V8 for the noise it creates and it's an Aston.

    ...Now, to find the cash for one.

    My thoughts exactly on the Aston. I've just always wanted one. The wife got me the track day so I could actually drive one.
    I was told though that most track days the track can be quite full wiith cars, its not you vs the world! And also many require a 25 insurance surcharge for any accidental damage. I suppose 25 isn't bad if you write off a 200k car

    Yes, like the ones the race in Australia, can't remember which on it is though. The Aston does it for me too......but I could pretend I'm Xenia Onatopp in Goldeneye if I choose the Ferrari.....Hmmmmm

    It would have to be the lambo or the Ferrari for me. The rest you see all the time on the roads, and are quite attainable if you save your pennies. Dont get me wrong, I think the atom would be the most fun but as said "just coz"...
