I guess it has to be the one in my profile - 5.0 Chimaera. Fastest car I've owned too though she feels slower than my 4.0

My 330hp impreza wagon was my personal car.

The most powerful car I have driven can't be named here as its not yet in production smile

R32 GTR with a R34 engine, 730Bhp on the last rolling road I had.

Rediculously rapid and another level to any other car I have ever been in or driven.

Most powerful car was the first Impreza Turbo I owned, classic shape and 357bhp. Prior this this I had a 160-170bhp Renault 5 gt turbo and the Impreza felt other worldly fast compared.

Would love another one day.

Current car, Ferrari FF, 651bhp. Truly licence threatening in every regard. Had the 533bhp Ferrari 612 before that.
