Putting money aside, if you could have one of these brand new from factory, which would you choose and why?

Normally I choose the 918 until my mum comes in and wakes me up opening the curtains and a nice cup of tea Thumb

Quite simply one of the best sounding cars ever and I remember seeing one go up against a 458 on a Sunday drive out, on the road it mullered it.

If my numbers came up I would have one as my daily driver.

CGT for me.

918 will need new Duracells soon. God know's how many millions that will cost?
