Default Coolest cars you've ever been in?

Just thought I'd start a thread for us to talk about some of the neatest cars we've driven/ridden in.

When I was 15 (3.5 years ago), our local car shop rented out a track in Savannah, GA as a test and tune day. Their main driver gave me a ride in their Porsche GT3 Supercup car and I have to say that was one hell of a ride. The driver wasn't holding back either. He was snapping the tail of that car out every chance he got but that car would never loose it. The stopping power is amazing.

Less than a year later, I did my first autocross at the BMW plant in Greenville, SC. I used a 2000 540i 6-speed. Later in the day, their head test driver gave me a ride in the M5 (had hardly hit dealer floors then). That car was brutal with the SMG and launch control. Probably the most impressive technology I've seen in a car. And I thought the 540i was a handfull.

So how about your stories?

I've worked on and driven several hundred cars in the many yrs I've been in my biz. But here are some that stand out:
Aston Martin Lagonda, Dodge Vipers, Acura NSXs, several model Porsches, couple ZR1s, plenty of Z06s, Bentley Continental, Ford GT 500, Ferrari F40, restored 1946 Chevy sedan, and restored Ford Model T. Lots of restored 60s/70s era muscle cars, and one of Boyd Coddington's custom roadsters.

other than my 11 second 72 chevelle that i was stupid enough to sell it has to be my friends 04 Z06 vette even though it was a little slower than my chevelle in the 1/4 mile it seemed ALOT faster while driving it. and it obviously handled 1000% better.
