And I'm just going to have to say it...



1985 Toyota Pickup. Solid front axle, 22-RE. Best truck ever built IMO. You absolutely cannot kill them.

Well, obviously you're not a golfer.

But you can't deny the EB110's mechanical merits or the Veyron's. Both succeeded at being the best, and most useable hypercar of their time. Both set precedents and were designed without compromise, executed flawlessly, despite including many "world's first" technologies.

I really don't know why they'd be left off a list that includes a thing like a Pagani Zonda, which has an engine taken from the CLK-GTR. Both Bugatti's have bespoke quad turbo bulletproof engines.
Which is why I asked if this is nicest in terms of looks or in overall car. In terms of looks, then the cars that I mentioned should be taken off; but in terms of overall car, then they should be left on.
