I personally would take a CTS-v , with a cam, some bolt ons and a pulley. I know its not AWD but it still keeps the "what the hell is that" sleeper that the srt8 enjoys.

Classy enough to go anywhere, powerful enough to beat most things, limited enough to catch people sleeping, smooth enough to drive your grandma to bingo. Its my next car, but then again, your used to driving the totally extreme The GTR is a beast, but just isn't jaw dropping when it drives by, thats my only beef with it.

Just thinking outside the box a little, since your stipulations are AWD, domestic, and unique. Sounds like you're planning to spend nearly $100k to get this GTR. You are right, thee isn't much out there that meets those guidelines. A guy I saw on another forum took a 2009 dodge ram 2500 4x4, chopped the long bed off and put a short bed with tonneau cover. Then he converted th stock 6.7 cummins into a studded, o-ringed, forged twin turbo that runs like some ungodly amount of boost, like over 100psi. He then upgraded the suspension, tranny, and driveshafts. To cap off the build, he put on the front clip of the Ram SRT-10 and side skirts. Everyone who sees it thinks it's just a standard gas v10 ram, which are actually pretty slow. He said he had less than $50k in the build and runs 9's all day long, and he TOWS his built 68 mustang to the track with it!! Also says he wins more money with the truck than anything he has ever owned, total sleeper.

That's absolutely insane but I need some flash and pizzazz.....but then maybe I'll grow outta showing off....I mean I'm 27 buy maybe I'll want something subtle in the future....

Maybe......

I'll get a used Gallardo for $80k and a new 4x4 megacab diesel and lift it sky high

Or a used stock Gallardo and a modded GTR

Or a bone stock new GTR and build a TT Jeep

Or a slightly modded GTR, a TT jeep, and a stock CTS-V or modded Megacab ram

Ah the joys and decisions of being a young single man with a career haha

Damn man, I need a different career. This Air Force thing isn't working out for me like whatever you're doing (I just turned 27 last week). jk congrats on having the means.

That said, I've thought of the used Gallardo route myself but you wouldn't be happy from the sounds of it without dumping a lot more coin in it (not fast enough). Bang for the buck, good looks and nice luxury, I'd suggest a V coupe as well. Or depending on how the ATS-V ends up, going that route. I'm biased though.
