moe, why the new poll..did you add cars?

Balboni still wins biggrin.gif
moe
Yeah, missed the Bentley first time around. Almost voted for it too...but I stuck with the Aston.
Razor
To everyone who votes Aston: if you buy one, your stealership is going to try to force you to buy one of these for $75,000:



Just something to... think... about.

lol
moe
As usual, you're an idiot. I know you're joking, but you're still an idiot.

Also the price conversion is worthless. Cars are much more expensive in Europe.
duality
i think the bentely has seen its time. they keep updating the conti...till what end? also, it weighs around 2000pounds more than the lambo. the aston would be my second vote tongue.gif

saw the cygnet article on autoblog...lol, just lol.
moe
I think you've missed the point. This isn't just another update, this is actually the first truly sporting Bentley they've made in forever. It's an epic performer too.

It fucking weighs the same as a SUV!!!!!
moe
Yeah, I get that, but it IS a Bentley. Have you read the reviews?
BlackJack
Call me an Audi fanboy, but R8 for me. biggrin.gif

Still going with the Gallardo but the Aston is very tempting.

I glanced over a few. Its impressive *for a bentley*. This thing would probably be as good on the track as that retarded BMW suv.
moe
I'm tempted to change my vote to the Spyker, just because it's such a crazy-looking car.
duality
i really couldn't care that its a bentely. the thing looks outdated and bulky...i could get a R8 V8 for half the price and be happier.
moe
Oh I don't care about the badge appeal either. I'm just saying it's impressive for a Bentley...they don't normally make performance cars.

I went with the Porsche because nobody else did. boohoo.gif

Haha, I would've voted for it if it weren't for the awesome Gallardo...
Altostratus
R8 v10 with a sexy gated shifter please.
Dr. Strangelove
Ah ha! what about the 430 Scuderia Spider 16m? That is an 09 car.
dukenukem
German lunacy trumps german precision. Go Lambo!

Dammit, does this mean I need to redo the thread?
infinity
Let's face it, the Lambo would still win anyways.
moe
Yeah I think Strangelove would vote for the Ferrari because he's a fanboy, but everyone would just bitch about it being an open-top.

True. whistle.gif

Though you can't really deny the bad-assness of that car.

I was just putting some thought into why Ferrari hasn't won a single DSCOTY yet.

Wait till next year. The 458 is a strong contender...but then so are the McLaren MP4-12C, Gallardo Superleggera, and Merc SLS.

Inside Line just did an article on the M600. It isn't coming to the US.
