I'd get a classic.
1973 Porsche 911 RS. White / Blue. OR Ferrari 365 GTB4 Daytona.
Maybe both for $180k.

If this car is going to be a everyday driver I would strongly look at the Porsche 997 (911) Turbo S. One of the only everyday driver supercars around...awesome reliability. There are 2 Bently GT's in my neighborhood and they are nice but the Aston Martin Vantage sounds so sweet and looks so cool.

Not really an apples to apples but.....I voted for the Lambo.

If its gonna be a sports car, it has to be Mid engine (low polar moment = quick handling).

The others are nice, the Aston Martin is overpriced seeing how it is similar to the Corvette z06.

But for crusin' the Bent would be cool too.

For a toy, the Lambo. For a daily driver, either the 997 Mike suugested, or an AMG SL.

I have an Aston Dealer a few blocks from my house... and they are sweet!
A real nice GT.

For a sports car... I'd be checking out the new Porsche GT3!

I see too many chicks driving the Bently GT.

New Z06 Corvette with $100K worth of bling and go-faster stuff (Lingenfelter; etc.)

Keep the money in the States folks. Might throw in a custom bike to avoid boredom.
