Audi R8, no words are really necessary here I think. It is the most beautiful carI have ever seen.
The horsepower, 0-60 mph and quarter mile race has been going on, is going on and will be going on. So this side of ultimate will be hard to answer. Top speed record holder is Bugatti Veyron EB16.4 Super Sport World Record Edition(267.857 mph (431.074 km/h)). Fastest 0-60 is Ariel Atom 500(2.3 seconds). Fastest quarter mile is Koenigsegg Agera R(9.3 sec @ 162 mph (261 km/h)). Most horsepower is a rare supercar from Denmark, Zenvo ST1(1250hp).
That's speed and power and whatnot. Reliability, that's hard one for me, I am not really sure which is most reliable. Same with most fun to drive or most comfortable.
Fame wise, you have either Bugatti Veyron or Ferrari 458 Italia.
And looks, well, that's even harder one. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, it is said. So there will be many answers to that one. Maybe as many answers as there are people. Some common names that come up often are Jaguar E-type, Lotus Elan, Ferrari 250 GTO, Bugatti Type 57, Lamborghini Countach and Miura, Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing, Ferrari Dino 206/246 GT, Jaguar XK120 and AC Shelby Cobra.
Ultimate will be argued to the end of time. For me as I like to feel the car and have the car tell me when we are getting to the limit it has to predate management systems and fuel injection.
My choices are the 1956-1958 Porsche 356 Coupe and the Jaguar E-Type Series 111 Coupe 1971-1974, as soft tops have to much body flex,
Porsche 911 (do they still make that model?) I am not into cars but we used to have one and I still get a funny feeling in my stomach when I see one.
Ultimate sports car for me would be something that is fast, comfortable, beautiful to look at and attracts ladies. Aston Martin would be the obvious choice, and I would prefer the DBS to any other model.
Wow! I love these answers, so much information to process. Excellent comments
This could be debated for many, The Veyron is definitely way up there. I think it currently holds the record for the fastest production street car (excuse my laymens terms) at the moment at something like 256mph. But for $1,250,000+, it better be a beast of a car. In my personal opinion, the Ford GT is the ultimate sports car. Power and beauty wrapped into one. If I ever win the lottery, I will be hunting for one.
