I decided to create a "Dream Car Garage" game, a selection of cars that if I had enormous amounts of money I would like to own and drive. I enforced few rules to make the "dream garage" more "scientific"
- Cars must be 1980 and newer - old cars are a totally different story and I do not want to go there
- One car per manufacturer - it makes it more fun as I had to cut some of the obvious choices
- No French cars - they are rubbish
- Cars are split across several categories like city car, classics, limousines, cabrios up to supercars
I had a lot of fun making my dream garage, I suggest you try it on your own.
Suzuki Swift Sport
Suzuki Swift Sport is my choice when compact city car is concerned. It comes as a surprise to me as well, as Suzuki is mostly known for super bikes (for example "Suzuki Hayabusa") but they seriously decided to use all that hi-technology in automotive industry too. Suzuki Swift Sport is small, nimble and fast. It's main contenders for space in my dream garage are Fiat Panda 100hp and Ford Fiesta ST. Suzuki is cheaper then Fiesta and more reliable the Panda (Japan beats Italy in car quality). That said Suzuki Swift Sport will be a car of choice to replace my old Fiesta one day.
Alfa Romeo SZ
I have a thing for cars emerging at the end of 1980's. and beginning of 1990's. That was a period of great dares in car creativity and technology. Alfa Romeo SZ is in my opinion the best designed car of all times. It does not have spectacular specification, but the way it looks is just brilliant. A touch of Italian charm with comfy interior smelling of beginning of 1990's, ahhh, what a great time that was. Only about 1,000 were ever built and it ads to the value. A cabriolet version called Alfa Romeo RZ was also made in even smaller series of only 241 vehicles. Greatest contender for this place is Audi S2, another great car of the era. But I already have an S2 ;)
Nissan Skyline GT-R
Every car enthusiast has a thing for cars that are called supercar-killers. That's a special category of cars that are within a reach of normal wallet, offer supercar performance and stunning driving abilities. This started with Audi Quattro and Lancia Delta Integrale HF only to be widely spread with Subaru Impreza WRX STi and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolutions. But the king of them all is without a doubt a new 2008 Nissan Skyline GT-R. While I think they could have made a prettier and surely a lighter car, there is nothing in today's top automotive technology that has not been installed in it. I want one in my garage. Every man should have one.
Every now and then you will need a car for longer journeys, something that is comfortable, reliable and of course blazingly fast. Skyline is too aggressive, supercars are not that practical. But Audi's RS4 is a limousine that offers brutal performance, German precision technology and comfort and four wheel drive safety. This car has it all, the looks and the performance. Rivals in the class are BMW M5 and a Mercedes C63 AMG but I wouldn't drive my kids in a M5 on a wet road and I have different plans with Benz.
Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG
For those sunny days I will need a cabriolet in my garage and what is better then an SL55 AMG? Maximum comfort while you are enjoying the sun, over 500 bhp under the bonnet of this luxurious monster. The car is way too heavy but you have to make compromises. Yes there are cars like Mazda Mx-5 that offer fun in driving but what you want here is to drive for fun. You only live once, why skip on good things?
Ferrari F430 (Scuderia)
What would a dream car garage be without a Ferrari in it? Ferrari F430 is technically a brilliant car in every way. It is a super car which you can drive to a supermarket. It is fast and it has F1 technology inside. For about 50,000 EUR more, you can purchase a Scuderia version - lightened and more powerful. Only contenders for this place in my garage are other Ferraris - Enzo, 360, 612, 550. But F430 is my choice and is best all-round supercar still in production today.
Bugatti EB110 (SS)
Beginning of 1990's was really a beautiful period in car industry, specially super car industry. We remember rivalry between Porsche 959 and Ferrari F40. Lamborghini Diablo against Jaguar XJ220. Boundaries were moved every day, until one day out of nowhere a car appears that rewrites the book. Bugatti EB110 had 4 turbochargers, a power plant that is one of the most advanced and complex engines ever created and a 4 wheel drive - a perfect supercar. The looks are brutally good - even by today's standards. SS (Super Sprint) model was introduced later and brought 100bhp more and 150 Kg's less. This is the one to have, out of only 31 ever made first belonged to Micheal Schumacher. I would still have this car over Bugatti Veyron just for the smell of 1990's leather and stone age computers.
Porsche Carrera GT
This is most beautiful supercar ever produced. I'll repeat that again - this is the most beautiful supercar ever produced. With looks of a modern jet fighter and power almost to match, Carrera GT is at the end of all my car dreams. Not in production anymore it is still the best supercar in the world today.
