the american dream
not a big fan of american cars AT ALL, but there are a few that can run with the european big dogs. the already mentioned saleen s7, ford gt, mosler mt900, dodge viper...but what i really want to see on the road is the cadillac cien (cadillac currently has no plans to make it)

feature a v12 engine pushing 750 horses.

Thats a shame they won't make it, been keen on American supercars since the S7 showed up. Ah well, who could have afforded one anyhoo?

Excluding the rims it's kind of cool. Has the whole bat mobile look to it.

The original caddy though has a damn nice bodystyle.

Unique interior, I can't say I am pro American cars, other than Vipers and Corvettes.

European are still the biggest dogs in town though, Lambo, Ferrari & Porsche take it all.

Not sure if Ferrari has a carbon fiber body for any of their cars yet but the Lambo has that wicked dark grey carbon fiber Mercu' and Porsche has the Carrera GT which is only a little bit heavier than a Celica GTS yet it pumps out over 600hp.
