My neighbors have some sweet cars. One has a new Gallardo in black and it's bada$$. My other neighbor has Ferarri 348, 355, and 360 Spyder, which is my favorite. He also has a Viper and NSX.....geese!!! The guy is a legitmate salesman too!!
The 360 is the F1 version with the paddle shifters....really sweet! That car is very comfortable...I was very surprised how comfy it was for being in it for 3 hrs on the road.

AM DB9 instead of the V8, more power and that sweet V12 sound... (and well less than 180k...)

The car is actually going to be a give-a-way for a company. I am trying to figure out which car more people would want. I will probably have a selection of a few cars such as the Lambo, Bentley, or the Aston. I think that those are some of the most wanted cars in that price range but I wanted to see what some other people thought.

I would think that if the potential winners of the car aren't too car-savvy, a Lamborghini would be one of the better choices, as the name is instantly recognizable. Sure, car guys are familiar with the names Aston Martin and Bentley. But you can be SURE every chick knows what a "Lamborghini" (or Ferrari for that matter) is.

For comfort and style, take the Bentley or the Aston. But for a wild, cool exotic, go for the Lambo.

From the list it would have to be the Lambo,

However I would rather have a New Vette and the extra bling

If it's a giveaway then clearly it has to be a "Dream Car".
Of the cars on your list, the Lambo would be the ONLY way to go.
Stuck in traffic in South beach a few weeks ago my 7 year old daughter practically hung herself out of the window to take a picture of a silver Lambo....
