If its not a Japanese tin-box no one seems to care these days... this is Porsche and Ferrari's finest, people!

To answer your question, i'd have to take the 959.. ive always had a crush on it, and the 288 gto evo is just too ugly.. if it was the standard 288 gto it would be a lot closer... and if it was an F40, i'd be here all night trying to make up my mind
