I'm not a fan of Porsches but yes, cool vid.

The next car isn't a GT40 but at least an "interesting" toy for cops.

I had to bung this one in there, the newer GT40, this one is 41 inches high so technically a GT41  :D

Thanks Data. Very nice report about the GT41.  :D :LOL: ;D

This is what I always wanted, a Lamborgini Miura (although not in yellow, call me picky  :LOL:)

Many thanks DD and Dave. Miura, Pantera, wonderful monsters...

I'm wracking my brain, trying to figure out what sort of vehicle followed the Veyron @1:35-1:39 - The shape/sound doesn't look familiar to me, I'm afraid.

And was that a Chrysler 300M I saw around 3:46 to 3:50? The logo on the back looked like it, but while the car's profile was close, it wasn't exact, so I'm thinking not. My second guess would be an Astin Martin, but I'm not familiar with their more contemporary models.

I noted that the quietest vehicle in that vid seemed to belong to a Ford (could be mistaken), while the most prominent (not necessarily the loudest) seemed to belong to a Lambo.

The pair of A/C Cobras were fun to watch. Of all of the "supercars" I've ever seen, that's the only one I've ever driven, though I HAVE worked on several high end Porches and a couple of Ferrari's.

That would be a Morgan Aero Supersports.

And if you mean the car behind the silver Porsche then that's an Aston Martin either a DB9 or a Vantage, which is followed by a Nissan GTR.

That looks like it. The funny thing is that I was watching an episode of How it's Made: Dream Cars about the Morgan a couple of days ago, and I never made the connection.

That was, indeed, the vehicle in question. Thanks x2, Snowy! :D

Congratulations to Snowcrash and thank you. This fantastic Unidentified Rolling Object is an amazing Morgan.  :thumbsup:

We can admire this beauty after 06:49 (see her fabulous back at 10:37). Thanks again.

Wonderful machines!  :thumbsup:

The Bugatti is a wonderful machine and the GSV is a snip at $2 million.

But if you gave me the keys to all 4 cars, from the video from DD above, and said I could have any one of them, I'd take the Lambo. It's mad. Like a Lambo should be.

But like that's gonna happen anytime soon... dream on.  ;D
