wow!, so many wonderful vehicles to choose from but the top of mine would be:

1. McLAREN F1 ROAD CAR

2. Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina

3. Pagani Zonda F

4. Almac Sabre S2

5. Lamborghini Diablo

6. Aston Martin V12 Vanquish

7. Bentley Flying Spur

8. Porsche Cayman S

9. Audi R8 5.2 FSI quattro

10. a.d. Tramontana R - perhaps the most exciting, is a single seater track/road car from Spain that looks like a black bug. With its 5.3 litre SOHC V12! twin turboed motor it gets to 202 mph rather quickly and takes 3.5 seconds to reach 60 mph. Call it a fully clothed and engined Aerial Atom.

As a rule Wiz I'm not usually into SUV's / 4x4's of any kind, but damm I'm taken with that Q7, the engine is just something else and it is the best looking "jeep" on the road.

Thanks for the Corvette correction. lkjohnson.

I sold Volvo's for a brief period this year and was fortunate enough to be able to take a few home as demo's each night. I had about a 50 minute drive up over a mountain beside the ocean each way so I could put them through their paces. I took a C30 T5 home and it rocked but my fave was the S60 T5 Turbo. I was being chased by a Chev V8 pickup and a Ford V8 pickup and they were getting more and more p*ssed as they couldn't catch me up the mountain. The torque they have is tremendous by it was very funny to watch them in thier frustration seeing my ass get smaller as I left them in the dust. I was worried about getting a huge ticket so capped my speed at 190kph, but the S60 was still wanting to accelerate.

My god... what a video... I was holding my breath, my heart was pounding... the shear exhileration of seeing those 2 cars going at it was astounding.  I was almost as excited as I imagine I will be the day I see my first F1 race live.

Great vid Wiz.

Heres another race from last nights show for all you boys n girls who don't get to see it straight away. You have to wait until the end to see the Lambo vs SLR but the build up is worth it.

Try and guess which car wins. Enjoy!

Top Gear is just getting better and better, where else would you get to see that sort of metal? Let alone racing them on a public road!!
Have to say but, I am not a fan of any of the hyper cars shown, I appreciate what they are and would love to have a drive in all of them, but they would not be my choice if I had the choice.Yes even the McLaren F1!!
