Amazing choice and in my top 10 for sure, totally iconic in every sense.

There are too many to choose from but I am going to say this beast:



Jaguar XJR-8 (LM)

First up, it's beautiful and secondly it marked a return to Le Mans for Jaguar after decades and won.

What won for them before this was equally as beautiful:



Jaguar D Type, hubba hubba

i'll give you this as best looking rally car; but the best ever is the Delta S4 because its so fuckin crazy. supercharged and turbocharged; could apparently get over 700HP but Lancia limited it so it could actually be controlled, and bad 0-60 of 2 seconds on gravel. it killed most people who drove it, but that's not the cars fault!!

The S4 was the maddest but I think the 037 was the sexiest

Psssshhhh, all these uppity new cars. Here's one from when real men drove real race cars!

Carl Fisher's 1903 Premier Racer that was designed for the 1905 Vanderbilt Cup Race but never raced. I saw it at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway museum yesterday, it was awesome. (Not my photo btw.) More info:

That's a real car? I thought Gran Turismo made it up to be ridiculous.

And how has this not been posted yet...



Just look at it. Every single part of it just screams "fast" and sliding round the corners must be so much fun OH GOD I WANT IT
