Mitsubishi Galant VR4 with the Twinturbo V6 2.5 otherwise also known as a Legnum if you go for the stationcar model.
280 stock horsepower directed down to the driveline that Mitsubishi uses on their Evo’s coupled with Active Yaw Control…. MMMMM. Its as if that engine is just asking for its dinky turbo’s to be ripped off and replaced with a proper set of VGT’s(Variable Geometry Turbo) instead :P. And you can’t beat that soft sweet rumble of that V6. I know its not a V8, but that V6 is not half bad.
Kinda hard question…
I have like 5 favorites, of which 2 are made by Pagani. The Zonda R (and consecuently the Zonda Revolution) and the Huarya. thee other 3 are the Koeniggsegg Agera R, Ford GT-90 (if it was more than a mere concept prototype) and this one:
Chevy Corvette. I’ve wanted one since I was a kid. Every time I thought I was making enough to maybe afford the payments the Corvette price went up. So, I’ve never owned one. Well, the dream is wonderful so why mess with a good thing.
