(A) Nissan GTR (0-60 in low 3s but 80% of people think its a Sentra with bodykit)
(B) Aston V8 Vantage (0-60 in 4.8 but looks and sounds mean)
(E) 911 Turbo (997.1) Coupe (0-60 in 3.6 but ive already had 2 Porsches)
(F) BMW M3 coupe (0-60 in 4.1 but looks like a normal BMW just wider)
(G) Lotus Exige S (0-60 in 4.0 but super small, yet super sporty (can add 100hp to wheels for cheap)
options not in there which were thrown up by mates were (H) an early Gallardo [may have to be a bit older maybe, 5-6 years if sticking to the price range] (I) Bentley Continental Supersports [bit out of the range] (J) Audi RB V8 (K) Ferrari 430 [bit out of the range] and you can't buy a 430 now that the 458 is out there ;)
back to the original contenders then, A-G and for style the 2 that stand out are the maserati and the aston. the aston is the better one based on the looks, the great sound the v8 makes and... uhm did i mention the looks? it looks utterly amazing. the maserati is not such a great drive and i am not too fond of the front to be honest although from certain angles it does look great but it loses out to the aston for me.
