Here are the rules.

1. The car has to be, or have been, street legal somewhere in the world at some point in time.  For instance, the Viper GTS GT1 can be used because the chassis is the same as the street legal version, transmissions aren't regulated (as far as I've ever known) and the engine is derived from the Viper original 8.0L V10.  One could also use the Gumpert Apollo S because it's street legal in Germany.  The V8 Supercar Ford Falcon (the latest one) cannot be used as the chassis is modified making it no longer street legal.

2. All modifications need to be noted.  One could note lightening procedures by drilling holes into chassis and body parts that are not load bearing.  You could also add twin-charge systems (two sequential turbo-chargers or a super-charger and a turbo-charger like the Zenvo ST1).  Alternately a wing (try to give an example of one that is close in design if you can) or other aerodynamic parts should be listed.  Tires do not need to be noted unless size is changed.

3.  Derived parts need to be listed.  You could note a flat eight engine that was derived from Porsche's A91 flat six unit.  Or a ZF8 transmission that has been repackaged to become a trans-axle.

4.  A picture should be, but is not a must, given if you can.

5.  Specifications should be given if you can find examples of them in the real world.  For example, if you decide to put a Roush 511IR (it's a 7.4L V8) into your car you could list the power of the engine since Roush lists it as 600 HP.  Rear Wheel power can be listed but should be noted as such and is typically 15% lower than the crank for modern cars.

6.  Any changes to the car should be by way of editing your post instead of adding a new post.  It makes your car more comprehensive and allows us to examine it better.

I'll post a car in a different post at a later time to give an idea.  I just don't have the time right now.

Sounds cool.
I would get a FC RX7 with a 12A
I would get a short shift kit.
Italvolanti Admiral steering wheel like in initial D.
Then I would put an IMSA GTU WB kit on the ride.
Lastly, I would buy a set of wide HRE 501 to fill the arches.

Not sure about the paint scheme. This dream might actually become reality in a few years I hope…

Well my *ultimate* dream car would more than likely be a Lotus Exige S 240 with a Holeshot Racing 2.8L V8, pushing over 700 bhp. It would more than likely have extensive aero modifications, but would still be road legal, barely. :P

On a more realistic front, there's this:


Mine would have the C-West E-Type Long Nose kit like in the pic, with the canards and spoiler as seen, but it would be riding on Work Meister S1 3P wheels in Bright Buffed Finish mounted on Yokohama A048s all round. It would be powered by a completely Cosworth-built VQ35, built to something like 500-600 bhp, going through a Holinger sequential tranny and a Cusco LSD. The car would feature full-on underbody aero, complete with front splitter and rear diffuser, and the exhaust would be re-routed to exit through the side skirts. And it would be riding on coilovers and Brembo GT-R brakes.

^That's much better than the S14a which was a bit of a ricer imo.
Do they have any big highways in Costa Rica?
and why on earth would you get rid of AWD?
weight?

Member's Dream Cars

^well, probably 250 km/h is the most you hit in here (damn you, half-assed geometry), but that's Japan for.

Got rid of AWD due weight and personal preference.

Well then, you might as well take an S15 and swap the RB into it. It would be a lot lighter.
In the US they have long freeways- from MI to FL. Howver, they are filled with truckers.
I have heard Nevada and Montana are good places to open up car throttles.

And I did some calculations:
If I swapped an RB into my dream FB3S, It would cost (including car itself) the price of a new Honda Civic and have the power to waight ration of a Nissan GT-R.

I'm no math whiz, but I like that equation very much indeed.

77-78 Trans Am with badass big supercharger, badass big tires, over 700 bhp under the hood and no any stupid ricer mods like 20+ inches wheels or bodykits. Just something like this:

Either Hennessey ZR700 with 1244 bhp twin-turbocharged LS9 from Venom GT, adjustable rear wing, low gear ratios (to decrease car's craziness) and all-wheel drive (for faster acceleration and more stability) or Hennessey Venom GT Spyder with body parts based on Exige V6's body parts (2nd gen Exige doesn't look as good as 3rd gen one for me) and steering wheel from Exige Espionage.

Extremely cool idea (apart from AWD and maybe the wing) but I have one remark to make: the Venom GT's engine isn't an LS9, but a rebuilt LSX 427. Early prototypes did use twin-turbo LS9s though.

Anyway, my idea for a dream build would be somewhat more vintage, perhaps not as fast, but most likely crazier. This scale model represents how the it'd look, with a few changes to be done here and there:





And now the full specifications.

Engine
Type: General Motors ZZ427/480
Configuration: V8
Head: 16 valves
Displacement: 6997cc
Aspiration: Ram air induction via front bumper ducts
Internals: Forged units from the LS9 engine
Radiator: LS7.R unit
Exhausts: Side chrome units with crossover
Power: 600 HP @ 6000 RPM
Torque: 750 Nm @  4200 RPM

Transmission
Gearbox type: Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual with reverse
Rear end type: Hennessey Dodge Viper unit

Chassis
Type: Tubular
Material: Steel with carbonfibre reinforcement
Body: Fiberglass with carbonfibre reinforcement and removed bumpers
Weight: 1250 kg
Brakes: Brembo 6 piston carbon units front and rear

Wheels
Front tyres: 255mm Goodyear Eagle GTA with white lettering
Rear tyres: 295mm Goodyear Eagle GTA with white lettering
Rims: 15" Cragar SS/T with chrome finish front and rear

Interior
Seats: Bride racing seats with 5-point seatbelts
Steering wheel: Three-spoke 1966 Corvette unit
Airbags: None

Performance
Top speed: Over 300 km/h
0-100 km/h: Under 4 seconds
Quarter mile: Under 12 seconds

Also, this thread is awesome.

I know. I've listed those because I've planned it to be stable. It was planned for roads like intercity highways. Not the best place for car to go insane.
