....you can only pick cars from one marque.


I'll take Ford, maybe not the most obvious choice but I like a lot of their products.

A white RS200...ok, a red one


A Mk1 Focus RS. On nice mornings I see one being driven into a local industrial estate, It just looks so right.


Got to have a Cosse in there



A racing Puma



And finally. A GT. I love these, it's shows that crazyness still exists at manufacturers.





What would you pick?

So, I'll be needing a make that does a supercar, a sports saloon, a lightweight sports car, a frugal and commodious estate which can also make long journeys in comfort, and, erm, something else.

I don't consider the Panamera a sports saloon, too big/heavy (as well as an acquired taste - which I wish to forego - visually).  And I'm thinking more Elise/Exige than Cayman for the lightweight.

The most hardcore R8, The Beast and an A6 OffBack Biturbo would be ok, but the lightweight sports car is nowhere to be seen.

BMW doesn't do the lightweight or the supercar, for me at least.

Mercedes fails similarly because the SLS doesn't tick my supercar boxes.

There is no answer, from what I can see.

I'm assuming that in a fantasy garage, such irritations as running costs are moot. Therefore I plump for Mercedes, because I can cope without a lightweight sportscar.

Classic: Silver 300SL Gullwing

For being driven in: Very dark green and immaculate 300SEL 6.3 with discreet updates

For those continental blats: Dark blue AMG SLS (I do like it, lots)

For the family: Dark green C63 AMG Estate

For daily use and sunny days: Dark blue SLK55 AMG (the previous generation)

If we can do groups, then the BMW Group:

Classic: BMW 507 Roadster

For being driven in: R-R Ghost

For daily use and those continental blats: Current generation M6 Gran Coupe

For the family: E61 M5 Estate

For sunny days: Alpina RLE (their take on the Z1)

All dark green.

and the GT (40) as an indulgence

I wanted to do Lancia just to have an Aurelia in there. I wanted call our daughter Aurelia but W2.0 said "all these English would pronounce it wrong!" so we ended up with Silvia. Which is a Nissan and not so cool.

I think I could go with that, adding the 456GT for the sake of it.

Good list. Rather better than a garage full of old Fords or Vauxhalls!
