I think I'd love a V6 GT or GTV/Spider. Perhaps one day or perhaps a Maserati 3200/4200, but that's where I place these utterly superb cars.
The TS we have actually sounds pretty good for a 4-pot. I suspect it's got the standard exhaust but I don't know. When I bought it I was pleasantly surprised at the noise, the performance however leaves a little to desire but at fiddy odd I don't much care for outright speed anymore.
I swapped a 1.6 Rover 25 (I still can't believe how much I liked that odd little car) for the Spider. The Spider was my daily for about two months (the Spider was so good I had to buy another Alfa) until I bought my GT but unto this day that little Rover seemed the quicker car in every way.
All that is nonsense though because that 916 TS Spider is the best car for the money I have ever bought. Nothing comes anywhere close.
My cars over the years have varied massively from Cortinas, Sierras, Manta, Mazda 323F, MX5 (OK ex missus) Honda Civics, Accords numerous Rovers (lease cars) and a couple of Ferraris and even a sheite Volvo 340 and even worse Reeeenult some name or other numberry thing.
The Spider sits right up with the Ferraris and at a fraction of the running cost (not to mention purchase cost).
It's utterly brilliant. I suspect the V6, though a little more expensive may even see me off Ferrari.. though probably not quite
