Brake Banzeen’s 5-car garage

First of all, I would like to thank one  of my readers – NE – for asking the question which inspired this post. The question was: “… if you had a dream garage of only 5 cars, what would those cars be?”

I had deeply thought over this for quite some time, simply because 5 cars aren’t much to a car nut! I also knew I had to make my picks count so I figured I would break it up into 5 categories (listed before each car). Some are dream cars which I know would be nearly impossible to own and I have also chosen some which are attainable. Here we go!

Supercar – McLaren F1

No car has made me foam at the mouth like the McLaren F1. It was way ahead of its time the day it was unveiled and still remains an automotive engineering benchmark in the supercar realm.

Track Car – KTM X-Bow

I know this car may not be as fast as a Radical or an Ariel Atom, nor does it have the exhaust note to match its capabilities, but there is something about this car’s design that gets me worked up. The mix of body panels, carbon fiber and open race-car structure really do it for me.

Classic Car – Ferrari 250 GT SWB


My favorite Ferrari of all time. Classy. Sleek. A true GT. All packed into a short wheelbase.

Daily Driver – The next generation BMW M5

The above-image is an independent rendering and not the official BMW design

Few cars can deliver the mixed-use balance which BMW’s 4-door monster can. Shopping? Taking the kids out for ice cream? Drag racing? Track day? Ferrari stuck to your tail on the highway? No problem.

SUV (4×4) – Mercedes G55


Nothing says “I am a utilitarian” like the G-wagon. The car has remained a testament to its initial design and is now more successful than ever, 30 years after it was first produced for the masses.

Conclusion

I could go on and on and on and on. There are so many other cars I could have placed on this list. Even now, I’m not sure this list would remain the same if I re-wrote it in a minute or two. But the overall aim was to come up with a balanced list with different criteria. Some dreamy, some attainable. Would love to see what you would like to have in your 5-car garage? But please, stick to the same categories I used; keep it short and sweet. Forward to friends if you want! Happy New Year to everyone! And the floor is all yours…

  3. kwt23 Says:

    Like the list, but i would put the touareg instead of the g class for suv. An SUV needs to be manly and strong. I know the g55 is a formidable car but u get the feeling that it has no identity if u know what i mean.
