This man knows what he wants: 23 Volkswagen Golf GTIs or 19 of the even-faster R version. ‘‘Well, why not?’’ he argues. ‘‘The Golf GTI is pound for pound one of the world’s best cars and surely the best allrounder under $100,000. It would be unconscionable to pass up the chance to own a lifetime’s supply. Nothing else does so much so well.’’
He wants the sole Ferrari in the group, a 599 GTB, ‘‘one of the all-time supercar gods’’ and simply the greatest car he’s ever driven. He wants a muscle car, and he’s a true-blue Aussie, so goes for a Valiant Charger RT E49, in hemi-orange. A Falcon XR6 Turbo would do duty as the ute. A Range Rover TDV8 has proper offroad credentials and will do for family holiday runs. His motorbike would be a Ducati 916 Senna edition, a dramatically styled road race machine. And for a nimble quick thing, he wants a lowkilometre Tommi Makinen edition Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI turbo.
