European Marques

Just wondering for the Ford Loyalists we are, what European Brand would everyone buy with a $100K price tag.

For me i'd go the Jaguar S Type, even though my wagon can beat it in a straight line drag.

I'd go for the Focus RS with the new X type Jag second.
Man I wish the Aston Martin Vanquish was $99,999, absolutely love that car. :D

Same here, Aston Martin is my favourite European Brand. But i can only get 1/4 a Vanquish or 1/2 a DB7 for 100k.

Wouldn't mind the Vantage actually.

Audi TT roadster(black)
Audi TT quattro coupe sportline(pearl yellow)
Audi S4(silver)
BMW 330ci(gold)
Mercedes ML270CDi(white)
Brabus Mercedes Vito van!(pearl black)
Then again with a $100,000 to spend on a car, the Fairmont wagon I would get would eat all of these things for breakfast!

I've driven both the Audi TT Quattro Coupe and the Audi Allroad, and I've got to say, whilst the quality is great, and the twin-turbo engines good... I prefer my Falcon! Heaps more room, less square, boring BMW style interior (did like the TT interior though) and a more ballsy ride. When you consider what you get for the price, I think we're doing pretty good!

$100K would get someone an XR8 Rebel modified to a coupe by Hilliers with a stroked and blown motor!
