for me its down to the Veyron and the RS4...

the Veyron is ridiculous in every sense, good and bad. but there will never be anything like it again, CMON 1000 HP, hopefully that assumption is not true.

the RS4 on the otherhand is practical, and crazy powerful awesomeness. while the Veyron is just crazy powerful awesomeness. shit...

although its kind of unfair to compare the RS4 and Veyron while trying to make practicality a major factor, because... it just isnt. but if I were to buy a supercar it wouldnt be a Veyron, probably a CGT or something. so thats where the Veyron loses.

I choose the RS4. because im a fanboy like that.

RS4 even though I chose the M5 over it and I chose the Veyron. The best of all worlds (though the M5 was the better of all worlds angry.gif )

im entirely divided by the Cayman and the Veyron

on one hand, I have been waiting for a Boxster coupe since the S came out in 99/2000, and I couldnt ask fro anything more!

But then again, the Veyron is a very net car, I just dont think its unique, or an engineering feat which will not be topped.

So Cayman for me!

For me this is between the Veyron, the Cayman, and the RS4. None of the other cars really captured my interest like these three did. While I'm sure the Cayman is a great car, Clarkson's remark about it not being the best car it could be lets it fall short of getting my vote. The Veyron is the pinnacle of automotive engineering excellence, and there's truly never been a car of its sort before. However, if I were to actually buy any of these cars, it would be the RS4. I love everything about it; it's handling (from what I've read), it's engine, the understated styling (someone just bought one on campus), and the slick interior. In fact I love it so much, that it takes its place as one of my all-time favorite cars alogside the previous generation M5.

The Veyron is not unique. It's just this generations Duesenberg. It will be outdone, it's just a question of when.

Audi RS4. Great for enthusiasts, great for families. Of these cars, it's the best fusion of practicality and performance.

I'm not about to change any votes. Besides, the competition is between the RS4, the Veyron, and the Cayman...three cars I love. Hell, I have no idea how I'm going to vote.
