Fellas,

I was just wondering if anyone has driven anything exotic? Perhaps a Ferrari, Lamoborghini, or....? (No cheating, a Fiero does not count )

Cordially,
Kevin

I used to own a 308 Ferrari GTS which was the most "exotic" car I've driven other than a Porsche I also used to own. Sold both of them and regret every second

I have driven a few porches i will add that a 100k porsche does drive twice as good as a 50k porsche and a 50k porsche drives about 10x better than a fiero. When it comes to cars like anything the more you spend the better you get. I do feel that the fiero is the best bang for buck you will ever buy it doesn't make it the best car however..

'81 Porsche 930 (European Turbo version of the 911)
'09 XLR - Car #002. Prior to production release
'05 C6 Corvette - Car #150. Prior to production release

All were fantastic cars, but none compared to my IMSA Fiero performance wise.

It depends on your definition of exotic. Here is my list excluding my highly modded Fiero: Margay fullrace setup sprint cart[brutally quick blunt force adrenaline rush speed machine], GTS Viper, Z28 Camaros, various Corvettes and BMW's[These are the easiest cars I've ever owned to drive really really fast, and they make you look good doing it even if you can't drive], a race prepped ACR Neon[you would be surprised on how exotic a properly prepped Neon can feel at speed on a racetrack], and a retired Hendrick Motorports Sprint Cup Stock Car[speed? do you like speed? a Cup car is all about speed, how fast do you want to go? I highly recommend you try one if you get the chance]. That's my exotic list, but as you can tell I like speed

My favourite was the XJ220, close second, W8 Twin Turbo, and third Noble M12 GTO. They were more fun than any number of the Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Lotus, Porsches, Saleens, etc I've driven. Still wanting to drive an Ascari and Koenigsegg.

Would a Porsche 928S be considered as exotic? Regardless, it was definitely fun.

Sadly, my fiero is the most exotic car that I've driven.

I have owned 23 cars in the last 22 years (I got my first car in 1988), though...sadly, I don't think any would count as exotic and few would even come close to that...

Hummm... exotic is a big word. Do we mean a car from far away, a rare car or just something different?

My ex RHD cars were pretty exotic. I had 2 Nissan Skyline GTR, a Nissan Fairlady Z twin turbo, a Toyota Soarer 1JZ, a MR2 GT

I've imported, Driven and sold a very rare Toyota Sera (16,000 made in 6 years)

If we are talking LHD .. besides my Fiero I'd have to say my old WRX, although my Turbo Baja is much harder to come by then the WRX. I also have a sunburst yellow Sky redline.

Ok, not technically an exotic, but expensive enough the average guy can't afford one...

(not actual picture ) BMW 650i with every gadget and option availabe. 360HP 4.8l V8 and 6speed manual trans. It was an absolute pleasure to drive. I'm still not sure why it made such a big impression on me. There was just something about it. Acceleration, cornering, steering, shifting, and stopping. Everything was spot on and very intuative. Way more fun than other faster and more expensive cars I've driven.

Still not as much fun as a V8 fiero though. The fiero is raw. I think thats its appeal. The BMW was extremely refined. Oppposite ends of the scale completely. Shortly after I drove it the owner traded it in for a Prius. I still call him every couple months to give him crap about that.

1954 Mercedes Convertible Cabriolet once owned by Marlene Dietrich. Wood paneled dash, leather seats, etc. When down, the top didn't go into the trunk and stuck up so high you couldn't see over it with the rear view mirror but Mercedes had a mirror that swiveled upward so you had rear view. This car was modeled after the one Mercedes made for Hitler but was updated. It had the Becker-Mexico radio, etc.

It belonged to my commanding officer and he wanted it moved from his quarters to our orderly room. I was the unit mail clerk and usually doing nothing so i was the "Hey You!" guy. He admonished me to not leave a scratch on the car. He showed me the title transfer info so I knew who the former owner was. Quite a thrill for an 18 year old Army private.

Unfortunately one of the great things missing from my life. The best car I ever drove was my friends 3 series BMW. Not really exotic, but nice none the less. Until my recent purchase of a Dodge Ram 1500 with a Hemi, the most exotic thing I have owned was my 2002 Ford Windstar. Yes, my life is incomplete.

Mine would be a genuine 1966 427SC Cobra which I had the luxury of owning for all of 4 months. My father gave me his car as a wedding gift but it was in such poor repair I simply couldn't afford to restore it (although all numbers matched). I ended up selling it to a restorer and giving the money back to my folks, who needed it much more than I did at the time (now I wish I had either the car OR the money ). The only word that can describe the Cobra is "Brutal". Total adrenaline rush but wears you a$$ out on long hauls (plus it wears out your credit card at 8 mpg)
