Question Is there any other step up from the Jeeps besides a GT-R???

So i'm pretty much set that my next vehicle is going to be a 2012 or 2013 Nissan GTR super silver and eventually a 900hp package from Switzer or AMS...retaining the stock drivability....

But....

I've been heavily pondering if there are any other worthy "vehicles" that are unique, badass, fairly rare, and as exciting as the Jeep and the GTR....that can road race, drag, and beat 99% of the cars on the street

Hell my dream would be to have an AWD, V8, 6-speed domestic CAR...but i doubt that will happen anytime soon.....the porsches are a dime a dozen and people can't tell the difference between a cayman and a carrera or a boxster really so that's not gonna work...gallardos are waaaay too expensive to maintain....

I'd love to take a stock Jeep and twin turbo it but damn these things are just sooo heavy....especially the WK2's...which have the technology and comfort i'd like that the 06-10' Jeeps don't have

Any ideas that could top my Jeep? What would you guys replace your Jeep with?

If I had to sell my Jeep and wanted to buy a fast, affordable car and mod it I would probably do an AMG Mercedes.

I love this post..........thought about it.......not alot to compare. I almost bought a GTR Figured a heavily modified supercharged Jeep would be cheaper and better all rounder as I live in Canada What about a CTS-V like Hennessy has on their site......just do it yourself or something similiar. I drove a friends last week (Stock) with the upgraded seat option.....I was pretty happy I just got out of a super modified Subaru STI, could beat most things on the road.......but it was still a Subaru

2013 GTR Black Edition Alpha 12 package and you will never lose a race.....unless it's against the UR Racing Lamborghini Gallardo in speeds above 160mph. I have been looking in the market for a GTR for a while now. Absolutely my favorite AWD vehicle.

RWD vehicles - I also really like the new GT500's even though I have never been a big Mustang fan. Or you could buy the 2013 boss 302 and throw a blower on it as the block is already forged.
