it's seem's as i get older my taste for car's getmore and more eclectic.
regardless if i can afford them or not like most guys i am just drawn to the curve's an sounds
i do have a healthy love for classic japanese cars but i can't help but feel like a little kid when i see something red fast and italian
so i would like to get some opinions about the new era of supercars that have hit us the last cuple of years

Trivia fact: the new Ferrari Italia takes obvious cues from the Enzo, which was designed by Ken Okuyama, who is Japanese. The car was unveiled to the world at the Tokyo Museum of Art.

I like supercars too.Too a large degree because they're made to be as good as humanly possible with little or no concideration for price or practiaclity when most cars contain a fair ammount of compromizes. I'm especially fond of the Lamborghini Miura,having had two such toy cars as a child and because it's the first production mid-engine roadcar.

actually there is a miura not to far from me that i see on a regulare basis.

i dont think cars have much presence in photos but in person they can just about get you in car accedents.
i guess it's hard to capure that type of feeling in a photo but that miura sure has an affect in person

I guess i like cars like this because i see them as street legal race cars and not fast street cars with doors that go up :roll:

I have seen a RS200 and is awe inspiring, there are 2 here in portland with 1 of them being up for sale a few years ago.

The Renault 5 Turbo 2 is awesome in its own right, I have seen a couple running around and is one of those cars I would love to own at one time.

I also love the Lancias for sure cause they were and still are fast cars.

I am also one that loves Group B homoligation cars :)

I saw the blue RS200 evo that was at ron tonkin a few years back. I remember completely ignoring all the lamborghinis and ferraris once i saw it. One of my favorites for sure.

Horrible pic but it's the only one i got.

The LF-A looks much better in convertible form because that vent doesn't look so out of place like it's blocking half the rear window.

Brad, that was a ride I'll never forget either. The hardest part was bringing the car back.

I designed and integrated a few systems in this Ford GT and we ran it last weekend for it's first event ever and the first time it has been driven in anger.

It still has all the factory comfort and safety items.

One of the younger techs. made the video so it's understandably over dramatic.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4aOTvdR7_Q

Here is another video of someone walking through the staging of the second group before they ran.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_p0vwhaGJw

We soft launched and short shifted it to ensure we were able to get as many runs as possible so we could use the data acquistion system that even senses ride height.

Next time out, we will unleash all 1400hp.....maybe 1800.

This was at an event called "standing mile" held at an abandoned airfield in the everglades of florida.

There will be a similar event in november and the yet another in January.
