Engine - AMG 55 (as used in current SL55 etc)
Location/drive - Mid/RWD
Designer - Pininfarina
Body style - 2 seat convertible
Tuned by - Lamborghini
Colour scheme - A TVR style reflex/chameleon - predominantly black but with red/blue/silver flips. Interior: Red/black leather with chrome and Aluminium details.

Apart from the Lambo tuning/Pinin styling... sounds like I need a Zonda drop-top with bespoke paint job then!

Now where's the chequebook...

More along the lines of the M250, but as a targa - the Alfa V6 is the best sounding engine and would fit perfectly.

Looking at it, it's more like the Pininfarina Chronos - a mid-engined coupe based on the Lotus Carlton. Then again, it doesn't have the Alfa's glorious noise!

Engine - BMW / McLaren 6.0 V12
Location/drive - Mid/RWD
Designer - Pinifarina
Body style - 2 door coupe supercar, with beauty and brutality in equal measure
Tuned by - No need with that engine
Colour scheme - Red Bull blue

Always had the idea that I'd build an Alfa V6 engined sportster in my garage when I was older / had the time / had the money. Tubular spaceframe chassis, tuned 24v 3.5 Alfa V6 mid ships (280bhp?), slinky bodywork, bespoke interior, double wishbones & coilovers all round, that kind of thing....

Have you heard of the Light Car Company Rocket?

Designed by Gordon Murray. There were rumours of a V8 version at one point?

Farley sure it was not the same car but a while back a saw something similar based on a renult 5 this is very close to what I am talking about visually but a bit more aggressive / f1 style would be perfect.

Ok now dont copy this design unless you pay me lots .
The Ultimate car must have a
Lamborghini V12 engine designed by Giotto Bizzarrini (If you have ever seen or heard one you will know why).
It must be Front engine and Rear Wheel Drive .
Styling would be by Ghia not Pininfarina
(pinin designed some ugly austins )
The body would be similar to a spider but not as low as a 360 spider .
(More suitable for the tall engine and touring)
Tuning would not be needed as performance would be adequate .
Colour Scheme would be dark navy blue metalic with a lilac pearl affect . The Interior would have to be quality blue leather and darker shag pile carpets along with dark piano wood(I think its rose wood) fitings.
Think classy Italian Ferrari 456 competitor . Something you would know as classy european and stylish . The Makers Name Simeone .The Car Name Venician .
