Wishcar: If you have half a Million Dollars, how would you make your dream car?

Ok, so I pretty much removed the Ferrari in this one as well as many of the cars around those price ranges. Hehehe.

If it were me I"d start with a midrange car and spend the rest of the money on detailing and some extra auto parts and accessories.

Get creative, new ideas and things that arent commercially produced yet are welcome.

Lets give Santa one heck of a headache......

I would get a 04 Cobra, tear it apart and build a Factory Five Cobra with it. I would of course buy all the strongest parts for it including a Blowzilla.

Half a million might be too big for this sort of a challenge. I'd say 200k will be enuff. Anyway, I think you guys should look into these designs. If Santa's listening I'd love any one of these....

acura



audi



Hummer



Honda



Benz



Biomoke



Kia



Toyota




Volks

Take a VE Commodore Calais V 6.0 V8, 6 Speed manual, Supercharger...



Actually there's not much other than that which needs doing...

Re: Wishcar: If you have half a Million Dollars, how would you make your dream car?

Why does my wishcar only cost 200k?

A new Z06 that can offroad.

If a mil, then a champ car. Close I can get to an F1.

Re: Wishcar: If you have half a Million Dollars, how would you make your dream car?

I was thinking guys and the more i think about it, this will probably be my wish car. First thing I'd do is go to the future, buy an almanac with all the lottery numbers in it and go back here at present time.



Then, maybe I'd call you guys, we can all bet and make zillionaires of ourselves.

That way, we can make more of our dream cars....

Saw, the new Santa Fe though... drool drool drool

Either make an Audi like Will Smith's in I-Robot or get an impreza wrx sti and add every possible aftermarket part available not to mention a killer DVD surround system.

where do you find an enzo that costs less than $500,000?

if it were me and it were in , it'd be a tie up between a 250 SWB in Lusso trim and RHD
or
DB4GTZ in lightweight trim...

if only it they were actually easier to find.
right.

on the other hand, if I recall correctly, it typically costs 100,000 for lotus to do a "job" on your car so perhaps I could have the only Lotus Yaris in the world? With the spare cash, I could also refit the interior with something more lush and still have enough buy another Yaris and commission pininfarina to work a body for me.... or maybe zagato...
