    Mine is absolutely the porsche 917K.
    Almout 50 years after it's first appearance it looks fast as hell, has gorgeous sounds and left enormous footprints in history of motorsports.

    Porsche 917 is my favourite in Assetto Corsa and i'm pretty sure it would be my favourite in Raceroom as well.

    That Sound!

    WRC cars without hesitation.
    Rally is the king of racing.
    A rally driver can race any cars any track.
    I love rally.

    at highest speed.
    as a rally driver, i think all other class are easy .
    you can be good with gt3 cars and noob with wrc cars.
    but all sim rally racers i know find easy all other class.
    rally is the king of king of driving.

    Lister Storm GT1 was the weapon of choice for me 95% of all my races in Simbin GTR1-2.
    Aston Martin is my #1 pick when I drive in iRacing.
    Volvo S40 from STCC/BTCC era, was my favorite when I started simracing. (~20 years ago)
    But it all started with the Mustang GTO in the IMSA series LooOong time ago when I came in contact with GT racing on the TV screen and video... what a race car.
    There have been others but these have always made a deep impact on how I treat my hobby these days.

    I agree, I even bought these mugs (especially for the #20 but rather high shippings costs made me buy a set of four) :D
    Must add that the #3 Jaguar is another favourite...

    Rally drivers can something that other drivers cannot. Rally drivers can fly. :)

    I'm hopeful that with a Porsche GTE, that we'll get this beauty in R3E eventually.

    I ordered from LegacyLegends - as @sbarro3 pointed out.
    Shipping for 1 mug was the same as for four, and seemingly a bit cheaper than to Germany: 13,75€.
    Must say: they seem to be very high quality (lots of other types too). Even my wife finds them very cool :)

    About the sound, we all know what Sector 3 can do...
    So, I really, REALLY would like tem to produce a model of the 917K, even if it has no direct friends to play with. I'd drive it every day (now I have to settle with the AC and rF2 model)....
    Not much on TV tonight... going to watch my Le Mans DVD...:)

    I'm always coming back to this one...

    I'm not a big BMW fan... but I just love this little troublemaker:

    Involuntary and unintentional take offs do not count.
