I showed this to Darling Husband.  He recommends any of the Ferraris, but the F430 would proabably be the best.  Yes, the Lotus Elise is a piece of crap.  It’s a glorified go-cart.

I LOVE the lamborghini gallardo. They are so sexy looking. My fiance would choose the Mercedes AMG though. He is a mercedes fanatic.

I haven’t been in/driven the gallardo but have been in the AMG and it seriously is one fast car!

Does your fiance watch formula 1? If so, what team does he go for?

ETA: I’ve been a ferrari and hated it. The cage made me feel really claustrophobic but it does feel very sporty.

I would probably do the Lambo Gallardo  or the lotus… Depends if he wants off the line speed or over all speed (I think)

I know nothing about cars, but what a sweet and thoughtful surprise!  I’m sure he’ll be super excited!

Personally, I would go with the Ferarri F430, but my Darling Husband is a big Audi guy so he would go for the R8. So it comes down to what your Fiance prefers.

My Darling Husband knows crazy amounts about sports cars so I asked him and he rated them like this (best first):

1) Ferrari F430

2) Lotus Elise

3) Audi R8

He also said that you might want to stay away from the scaglietti because while it handles well it is a four door. He says that the Lotus is a tremendous value and that your Fiance woul be happy driving any of the above three.

I totally know how you feel because Fiance will say things like “This car has 500 horsepower” and I’m like, “What?”

My Darling Husband knows his stuff (He just built a 600 hp Shelby Cobra from the ground up).  I asked and he said the 430, hands down.  He said it is the best!

I would go with the Gallardo or any of the Ferraris! You really can’t go wrong with those :).

The Lotus Elise is good with corners but does not have much power…so I would say no to that one

I would go for the Ferrari F430!!
