    Sorry if this has been done before, but if you could have a stable with say 12 cars, what would it be?

    Mine.
    1. 1974 Porsche 911 2.7RS
    2. Audi RS2
    3. Audi UR Quattro SWB
    4. Audi RS4 B7
    5. S2 Coupe (My old one back)
    6. S3 8L (The current one)
    7. Porsche 997 turbo
    8. Porsche 991 GT3 RS
    9. Lamborghini Gallardo LP-560
    10. Range Rover Evoque Dynamic.
    11. Subaru Impreza P1
    12. Audi RS5 Coupe

    Come to think of it, I could have probably picked 20 cars easily!

    Ah, the dream garage question!

    Should have limited it to 5 cars, the world is your oyster with 10+, with 5, you have to actually think about it more!

    Either way, if money no object, the first car on my list is a McLaren F1 road car!
    I'd also want a MINT Mk2 GTI G60 in Aubergine in my Top 5, don't ask me why, I just always wanted one, and despite them being available and affordable to me now, I still think they're a bit too much money, so I will probably leave it as a dream.
    A road legal SWB Audi quattro rally car.
    Every dream garage must have a Ferrari in it right? F40 is my ultimate dream Ferrari.
    And finally, my daily would probably be an RS4/6 Avant, not driven either, but a load carrier with monster perfomance would do me fine.

    LOL Am I one of the few people in the world who wouldn't bother with the Ferrari?
    Lambo all the way for me ;)

    A great question and even if it has been done before it's worth doing again.

    1. MP4-12C - I'm a lifelong McLaren fan and that is my number one car, if I could only have one this is it.
    2. Nissan GTR - highly tuned to 750bhp plus, a tech fest and a weapon
    3. Ariel Atom 300 Supercharged -because it can redefine your senses
    4. 911 GT3 (991 with paddles) - because to be able to pull both paddles to lift the clutch and execute a slide is awesome.
    5. Renault Megane R26.R - the 911 GT3 RS for the rest of us, an incredible little car.
    6. Lightning McQueen - you did say ultimate stable and a talking car would be cool and my boy would love it.
    7. Aston Martin Vanquish - Bond, James Bond & for taking the Mrs out.
    8. Mercedes SLS AMG - for the Mrs, to nip to the shops and that sort of thing, I'd hardly drive it, honest
    9. MP4-12C Spider - for when it's sunny
    10. Audi RS6 - family wagon, holidays and that sort of thing
    11. Impreza WRC (full works) and buy Phil Price Rally School with it's own special stage to play at the weekend.
    12. 911 (991) Turbo as my every day runabout

    I know a guy that owns a Ferrari and it seems after you have had a drive in it, it goes back to the dealership for a £££££ rebuild! I think they are beautiful cars though.

    Money no object, mine would be;

    1. Porsche Carrera GT
    2. Mercedes Benz SL 65 AMG
    3. Aston Martin DBS (For her indoors!)
    4. New 911 Turbo Convertable
    5. Audi R8
    6. Audi RS5
    7. Bugatti Veyron (Purely for posing!)

    and I have no idea why, but I woud quite fancy an old London Routemaster bus!

    I've had a go in both out on the road, the Ferrari stirs your soul, the Lambo Gallardo I had a go in was quicker, but it was effortless, too easy to drive! And for sure a McLaren F1 is the ultimate dream car above anything else, so I'd have both! ;)

    To ram everyone out the way to clear a path to enjoy your other cars perhaps?

    Go on then...

    1. Mk2 Escort with Honda S2000 engine
    2. Porsche 996.2 GT3 in Red
    3. Porsche 993 Turbo in Burgundy
    4. TVR Sagaris in Orange
    5. TVR Cerbera 4.5 Red Rose in Burgundy
    6. Ultima GTR in Red
    7. Mercedes C55 in that nasty beige/olive green
    8. Renault Clio Trophy in Red obviously
    9. Aston Martin Vanquish in dark grey
    10. Austin Mini with Honda B16 red with white roof
    11. Lotus Exige S in Alien Green
    12. Ariel Atom Mugen

    Sorry no Audis, I did take the RS4 out and put the 993 Porsche in its place. Trimming the list down to 5 that suit me to a tee (3 British cars!!!):

    Porsche 996.2 GT3 everday and going to the Ring
    Mk2 Escort/S2000 off-road duties on a private rally course
    Lotus Exige S for the track
    TVR Cerbera 4.5 for grumbling around
    Aston Martin Vanquish for posh jaunts to Europe (any Aston, not specifically the Vanquish)

    edit: edited twice already...
    edit 2: I've owned minis and mk2 escorts so I won't get those, and am saving for a 996 Porsche C2 at the moment which I'll most-likely trade for a Cerbera then a T350C - I should do this the other way around do the TVRs first but I know I'll fall in love with them more than the Porsche. If I can afford it, then ideally I'll get an Ariel and have an Porsche 997 C2S as a daily. And a Ducati 1199 Paningale. And..and...
