Re: What car do u drive and what have u driven so far?

Bikes:

Honda CBR 600
Suzuki GSXR-750
Suzuki GSXR 1000


Cars:

Audi TT
Porsche 911 Turbo (1992)
Corvette C4
Ferrari F360
Lamborghini Gallardo

After the bikes the cars were extremely underwhelming. The Gallardo simply felt like a "slightly" souped up Audi TT with a clunky gearbox, after stepping off the GSXR-750. The C4 felt slowest of all.

I believe in terms of acceleration sub 150mph you'd need something like a Veyron to just equal a 750 bike so thats not a surprise.
F1 car width now 2.0m (same as 1993-1997). Lets go crazy and bring the 2.2m cars back (<1992).

Well let's see,

First Car @ 17, Vauxhall Corsa GSI. :oops: At the time I was like a king, now looking back Ah Gawd, what an ejeet
Then

"toyota Glanza" but with a 1.5cynos engine and some mods for a cool 250bhp in a tin can. Glad I matured not to be an idiot in it though

" Nissan Pulsar VZR N-1 v2" - imported from Japan myself. Longest 2 weeks ever, couldn't sleep. Neither could my bank account.

With the family - "Mazda 6 estate 2.2D sport" most reliable runaround ever.

Weekends - BMW m5, which I am selling as the family has no officially taken over.

I've had quite a few of very similar cars (thanks to a novated leasing agreement) so I'll spare you the different colors of basically the same car...

1983 Ford Falcon 4.1L Inline 6 sedan and wagon (estate for our euro brethren). Great car to learn with, and eat up the Kms but not much in the performance dept. Great torque though!

1980s something, Toyota Hilux single cab, diesel. Terrible in every way.

2002 - 2004 Holden Commodore S and SS. Thought they was really good at the time having striped out of my old Falcon. Not quick, but handled well on smooth winding roads. Terrible gearboxes (Manual and Auto).

2004-2005 Ford Falcon XR6. A little on the heavy side for an everyman's 4 door NA sports car, but the ride, torque and interior was a huge step up over anything I'd had previously. Gearboxes were ok but 4 gears... Not enough.

Late 90s Toyota Starlet, hugely modified. Was like driving a bee with completely overhauled suspension. Also felt fast... But wasn't really all that quick.

2005 Ford Focus. Just a box on wheels.

2003 Ford Fairmont Ghia V8, V8 out of an early 2000s Mustang increased in size to 5.4L. Good torque, but floats like a boat which makes it a good cruiser but that's it.

80s Nissan Pulsar (Primera). Total rubbish.

2015 Merc C220. Great looking interior, no performance, no handling and unable to deal with uneven roads. All about the gadgets. Waste of cash.

Currently own:
In Australia... 2007 FPV F6 Typhoon (basically an all bells and whistles Ford Falcon high powered turbo charged inline 6). So much fun to drive. Makes AMGs, M series etc look over priced and slow of similar vintage. Wish the tech was more modern... No USB or Bluetooth streaming, but the drive is so engaging you don't notice unless cruising for 6 hours.

In China... 06 Toyota Reiz 2.5 V6 (Mark X). It's junk! All gadgets, no soul, nothing that engages.
WilliamsF1 fan since 1989

I can see some great cars in the past posts. The more interesting cars I've driven over the years :

Ferrari California
BMW M3 F80
Mercedes C63s AMG
Mazda mx5 mk3 with a V8
Turbo Mazda mx5 (250hp, 1000kg, amazing fun for the money)
Golf gti mk5 (personal car)

I've personally started driving on a 1.8 Italian beauty that even Michael Schumacher loved (the 1.8 Fiat Stilo coupe :-P). I then sold that and bought the mk5 GTI which I've driven for the past 5 years. Great fwd car. My next daily driver is currently on order, should arrive in the next few weeks, a C43 AMG. I also own a mk2.5 MX5 that it's currently being turbo'd to use as a track car.

I found this classic racecam vid of an early 4cyl Group A Nissan Skyline rounding up BMW M3's @ Bathurst - in the wet..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1Ezbfk2RJs

I have a fond memory of doing something fairly similar, back in the day, in the rain ( & on public roads too, how naughty!)..
..in a freshly de-restricted Nippon-import Nismo-factory race-homologation road car version..
& for sure - it too was very torquey-predictable, & def' not "wobbling around"..
