Onez st posted a similar discussion 3 months ago asking 'if you had $50,000 to spend which Charger would you buy '? I would like to go further and ask the following...What 2020 automobile (make/model/trim) would you buy if you had $135,000 to freely blow on the purchase?

Here are the rules:
1. This is the Only 4 wheeled vehicle you will drive for the next 20 years.
2. You can modify it any way you desire.
3. It must be driven thru all seasons and cannot be put in storage.
4. Vehicle will be fully loaded with all options (if you wish)
5. You can submit two choices if it's a tight decision.
6. This vehicle will come with the longest year or mileage factory warranty available to the original owner.

Don't be afraid to answer if it is not a DCJR. 馃槈

I will give you my choices later.

Excellent choice. I forgot to mention that the $135 grand is the max you can spend. There won't be any money left over that you can take to the casino. 馃榿

The car that keeps popping-up in my mind is the C8 Corvette. But first I'd have to see if my creaky, old body could get in or out of one.

20 years? You could have at least said 10... I don't think anything that is daily driven will last that long sadly.

Trackhawk sprang to mind as did the Durango SRT... need the Durango Hellcat version. Would also love the Charger Hellcat Widebody but wouldn't want to spend the gas money on any of them.

Model X or S fully loaded.

Audi RS7

Fun to think about the possibilities... I'd want a winter set of wheels/tires for any of these just like I've got for my R/T!

I Love the C7 Z06 but 6'3" 255....it would be a great perfect day car for me Targa top off always, plus I keep reading that the seats are rated for 200lbs.

Ram 1500 Longhorn/Limited or Ford Raptor since I'm trying to get to Colorado.
Widebody Hellcat if I end up in Nevada.

Trackhawk.
^ This

I loved my 鈥19 Trailhawk 5.7 A LOT so naturally I鈥檇 love the Trackhawk. Though I鈥檇 bastardize it and lift it a bit and do the Trailhawk off-road treatment to it.

I looked at it like this; it fits multiple bills. It's roomy enough for my dogs and smallish cargo, it might actually be able to tow my boat and it's still very fast. Not the best gas mileage wise for a daily (a 392 would be better) but if the money is there lol.

In reality just the regular SRT JGC is practically the perfect vehicle. For me though I desperately wanted the Trailhawk with a 392...even if detuned a bit. That platform desperately needs a 392 in the other trims like Trailhawk, Overland and Summit.

On a semi related note I wish you could get a stripper 392 in the base R/T body. No extra body kit, just a plain Charger body with the 392 beast. I would of bought one immediately. That also goes for a modern 2015+ Dodge Magnum. I want a 2017+ Charger made in to a Magnum if I ever get rich OR a really nice payday bonus at work...or money left to me from a relative it鈥檚 gonna happen.

Well that should be easily remedied... I'm sure if you bought a Scat Pack you could get a 2015-2018 R/T owner more than willing to swap front and rear fascias and side skirts and hood with you!

A stripper 392.....isn't that what a Scat Pack is supposed to be lol?
Sort of. I just prefer the base look without all the body kit. :)

In other words, I want a 392 available in this:

I鈥檝e already got the 2018 R/T I want and have already dropped some coin for mods so it鈥檚 really a pipe dream to get a 392 at this point. I鈥檓 better off looking for a 392 car which was rear ended or t-boned and totaled to get as a donor car later on IF I decide to do the swap. I鈥檇 probably would rather just get a Whipple or Kenne Bell supercharger put on in the end.

But this is all off topic. :D
