Needs to be large, ugly, powerful, dynamically incompetent and to have a USP even a really thick bloke could grasp.

Heres 5 off the top of my head..

E34 M5
Land Rover Defender
Dodge Charger
Hummer H1
Dodge Viper

I think to qualify as 'manly'its got to be..

Very Uneconomical
Loud
Simply styled, e.g. not too fussy!

I was looking for convertible versions for another thread earlier when I saw this one, I immediately thought that should I decide to do a bit of Gangstering, this would have the to be the wheels! E500 W124
I just love the simple unfussy design of the W124. This photo shows it perfectly.

Cobra and the 90s Vantage as suggested already.

I'd agree it has to be a V8, can't be easy to drive (powerful, rwd, minimal aids), and it has to either be ugly, or plain brutal looking.

A 429 BOSS Mustang. If it doesn't have the word BOSS in the name, it's not manly enough to beat this. Manfact.

The Judge > BOSS


Most late sixties/early 70s muscle cars count I guess.
Definitely! It has to be something with the aerodynamic coefficient of a brick and have a front end which stares air into submission then has the power to just batter it out of the way anyway rofl

G55 AMG
