This, basically, but with a JCB-developed 565hp/565 lb-ft turbodiesel inline-6 and accompanying 7/MT. Oh, add in a custom camper bunk, and hardened wiring & electronics so no EMP fucks it up.
Upgrades to reach 375 hp/375 lb-ft and current-season Dakar suspension for better flood wading, plus EMP hardening.

I’ve already got practical and rugged dealt with. I also have my dream race car down, too. I only have two slots left.

Now, this assumes I’ve driven just about every kind of race car, and I think I can safely leave them out. But I am still left with a daunting choice between well over 300 different sports cars from different eras.

Somehow, I have to take two cars that I know that when I drive it, I would not feel as if I need to drive any other.

Here are my finalists:

  • Aston Martin V12 Vantage S 6MT
  • Chevrolet Corvette C7 Grand Sport
  • Dodge SRT Viper ACR
  • Ferrari 458 Speciale
  • Ferrari F12tdf
  • Ferrari FXX K
  • Honda NSX-R GT
  • Lexus LFA
  • McLaren F1 LM
  • Mercedes-Benz 300SLR
  • Nissan Silvia S14 270R
  • (upcoming) Pagani Huayra Roadster
  • Porsche 997 GT2RS
  • Porsche 991 targa 4 GTS 6MT

[Loophole: Because Andrew Collins only ever said car, not bicycle, motorcycle, or tricycle, so I can get away with a Morgan 3-Wheeler & one each of full-suspension fat bike, triathlon/TT road bike, cyclo-cross, and a modified version of Gocycle, which I actually find to be cool.]
