Whats the coolest car you've ever driven/ been in

What is the coolest car you've ever driven or been in. This means on the street and in motion. Plus a story about it (if you want).

Mine would be a 2001 Ferrari 360 Modena F1 coupe (red, of course).

It was owned by my dad's cousin (who was a professional racer) and currently owns AASCO Motorsports in ALMS. We took it up to 3rd gear (about 100 mph) on the street. The sinlge greatest day of my life.

He's sold it and is #30 on the U.S. Lotus Elise delivery list. I think he has gotten it by now.

Drove my neighbor's 50's Corvette for prom. I also got driven all over Chicagoland in a red Hummer a few days after that.

Been in, Mercedes McLaren SLR

Driven pretty much every Mercedes under the sun but a few that stand out are....

SL65
SL600 (R230)
SL55
CL65
CL600 (C215)
CL55
E55 (W211)
SLK55

Out of those my favorite is probably the SL65. There's nothing like driving Mercedes Benz twin-turbo V12 when you hit that sweet spot and you just feel 600 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. Though I do wish the tires on the thing could handle the power. Traction control is always going off which is probably a good thing cuzz it keeps idiots like me from ending up in a light poll.

EDIT: Still waiting to drive the CLS55, that will soon be on the list I'm sure.

I haven't driven really anything, just my dads BMW.

I was lucky enough to get a ride in a McLaren F1 LM last summer. It was the most awesome thing in the world. The noise from the engine is something I will never forget. Definitely the best day in my life so far.

on the street and in motion... thats a tough one. I've been in many a car I can't really remember them all. I guess I'll say roadtrip in a brand new LX470. It belonged to my friend's dad.
