    I'm currently driving a Prius, 50+ mpg. :)

    Of course I also dream to have multiple cars,

    1. Jeep Rubicon
    2. BMW R1200R
    3. Dodge Viper

    This is my favourite car. Red lines at 19000 rpm and does 0-100mph and back to 0mph in under 5 seconds. It makes that porche look like a rover 25:D

    Oi, less of that! My Rover is a beast... when it's working.
    I love the Mclaren F1 Road Car! If I had a million I would buy one and live in it! Beautiful design and ridiculous speed and it's old!

    Hah, I couldn't be more mother earth-unfriendly compared to you... driving an Evolution 8MR. :p

    Well, technically the R1200R isn't a car! *chuckles*

    Andy05: The new McLaren MP4-12C isn't too shabby either... I bet Rowan Atkinson has his delivered already!

    I drive a 2005 Toyota Camry XLEV6 with 68,000 km so far in the summer. I drive a 2010 Toyota Corolla LE for work in the winter and has over 75,000 km in just 2 years of driving. Honestly, unless you have tons of cash to burn or your daddy leave you a fortune and you rather spend them on exotica, then enjoy those exotic cars and the top heavy maintenance. With the exception of the Honda Accord (I drove 3 of them previously), the Camry is as good a family car out there, reliable, quiet, smooth, power, exceptional resale value. If I ever replace the Camry, it will be a Lexus and that is when I retire in 3 years time.
